Self Deception

"In my opinion: The Greeks(Ancient Greece) knew their "Myth's" where myths,modern mankind,now has belief that are myths,which believes Truths"-me

There’s a Cherokee story about two wolves, and it serves as an excellent parable. It goes something like this:

One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “my son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all. One is evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace love, hope serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”

The grandson though about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “the one that you feed.”

I highly recommend watching this series on "Self-Deception" Leo must of put a lot of study into their making,and giving these insights for free

The map–territory relation describes the relationship between an object and a representation of that object, as in the relation between a geographical territory and a map of it. Polish-American scientist and philosopher Alfred Korzybski remarked that "the map is not the territory" and that "the word is not the thing", encapsulating his view that an abstraction derived from something, or a reaction to it, is not the thing itself. Korzybski held that many people do confuse maps with territories, that is, confuse models of reality with reality itself.

A three-phase schema of the abstraction process helps show the overlap between James’s and Dewey’s perspectives: 1. Singling out. Abstraction first identifies and emphasizes a single predicate, part, stage or object of a complex whole, whether the whole be material, ideal or both. 2. Symbolizing. Abstraction conceptualizes the predicate (etc.) as belonging to a single kind—a concept, a sign, a mathematical object or function, in short, a symbol. 3. Systematizing. Abstraction associates (James) and relates (Dewey) the single symbol to a system of symbols, a system that is fallible, disunified, and one among many.7 A particular symbol classification includes laws, causal regularities, and judgments in which concepts (James) and mathematical objects (Dewey) are connected and networked.

Are We so Focused on Survival, we claim "Certainty" for things which should not be for a moment seen as a "Certainty",as they may very well be "Simply a Shadow,a fleeing glimpse of true reality?.


Do we Project these newly created,constructed Forms or newly found "Certainties" on to the tribe member next to us while getting a drink?.
