In order not to stand in a dead end, deny the dead end. You have done something, and this something is your only option. Close your eyes and pretend it's not there. No light at the end of the tunnel? What are you going to do? First, in a state of despair? And then? And then you will see clearly and begin to notice the starry sky and thousands of other very different options.
Pride is the greed of big steps and judgments. Dichotomous thinking is big, fast, and contrasting judgments. If a man humbled his greed and judged in the smallest terms, the world would go from black-and-white and vile to colored and joyous. Those who judge with moderate, slow, and small steps realize that there is no boundary between black and white.
Hands! Legs! ... The main thing is the tail! The point is that the most important things are very obscure. What seems to be the main thing only distracts attention from the main thing, which is somewhere nearby. The main thing is not the sun or even the earth, but life on the planet Earth.
A hole in the wall should not be hammered with your head like a woodpecker, but with specially created tools. Man differs from other animals in that in order to catch a bird of fortune, he can weave a net, make a bow and arrow, and generally approach the process of hunting creatively.
Things are enslaved by their associations. By creating an abstraction, you are freeing a thing from slavery. On the other hand, associations were properties and all possible relationships of objects. How do I find out about an item now that it's turned into a black hole?
Objects that correspond to the dominant idea paradigm attract attention and generate associative relationships. The consciousness concentrated on the object begins to distinguish the associative connections of this object and integrate them into the dominant area.
It's very important what you're looking for. In the chaos of being, you will find exactly what you are looking for. If you're looking for proof of your idea, you'll find them. If you are looking for a solution to a problem, you will find them. If you're looking for refutations, you'll find them. Fear, pain, joy, luck, and problems are searched for in the same way.
The outside world is a broadband frequency range where a signal that can be interpreted as truth and reality is repeated at certain intervals at different frequencies. A signal that is false and an illusion fades out of its frequency range.
In order to be able to concentrate attention, it is necessary not to be afraid to look at the whole during the dispersion of this attention, not to close your eyes from fear. You need to realize that the whole is a collection of millions of faces and shades. After seeing thousands of faces, you can consistently study them, focusing on them.
Genius is the paradox of the unity of mindfulness and inattention. Genius sees thousands of facets in every phenomenon, and is able to put them together as a whole, and concentrate on one thought for many hours.
It is a fallacy to assume that entities are made up of details. Only broken entities are made up of parts. Working entities are a single monolith. To take something from the monolith, you need to destroy it. The world is a nondeterministic system consisting of monolithic perfect entities.
He who seeks will find. As soon as you have a question, you will start finding answers everywhere. And even if you wait passively, they will start coming to you and giving you hints. Your task is to listen carefully and notice the background in the episodes.
The free will of the human mind is that, as an observer, it can determine the essence of things, giving them any necessary characteristics. The mind, depending on its goals, can determine for itself what is good and what is bad, what is true and what is false, what is beauty and what is ugliness, what is possible and what is not.
To make a breakthrough in the new, you need a new tool. The conquest of a new world begins with the creation of new weapons. You cannot defeat an old enemy with an old weapon, he is already used to it and knows how to fight it. For a squirrel in a wheel to break out of its circle, it needs a new tool, a new approach, a new weapon.
All systems are the same. If you come to a deadlock in one thing, observe attentively something else – something that you know well or, on the contrary, something new. Having taken a hard look at B, you will see A.
