    Default Who the Hell are we?

    "Cogito ergo sum/I think therefore I am." (Descartes) is an edict that I observe many Modern/LaVeyan Satanists basing their principles on. Yet, on what basis are we and what are we? Is it even true? Who or what is really pulling the strings? Are we truly free-thinkers - spontaneous, independent, open-minded, and/ or conscious?

    Our behaviors are a function of what we have on our motherboards/brains and the programming locked inside it. Everyone who is asked about that programmed it themselves and the free-thinkers" would fight to the death to assure that they think independently about everything.

    Who really influences our choices and decisions? We have unconsciously, for the most part, let others stake claims on our motherboards/brains. As a child, we wanted our parents' acceptance. Now we think, act, feel the way they did, not comprehending as to why. Later on in adolescence and in early adulthood, we replicated others' programming out of guilt or fear and we're still doing it today.

    We're living our lives without knowing who we are, acting out others' wishes, disconnected from our true selves. This is because we have added so many beliefs, visions, thoughts and values to our motherboards/brains that weren't ours to begin with. Now the result is "me", or is it?

    I do not know who I am and frankly do not care. I eat I breathe i absorb the magical energies and are sustained by them. Some where some how i am there and then i am not and there i go again. I do not disconnect only fall short of the connection but am perfectly capable of the connecting.

    Yes, why should we care? Does it have an immediate impact on our existence? Or doesn't it? Eh, it was just me thinking too much again.

    I just felt inclined to share...

    I am glad you share your feelings and your thoughts. I enjoy reading your posts. You are right why should we care that is the one million dollar question. I have often pondered that myself.

    Haha...flattery will get everywhere. I hate to think in metaphysical terms but I sometimes get the inclination.

    In todays modern world, (America) there is no way I can think of living without being shaped by other ideals. There's a lot that has been done, and a lot that hasn't. Could you justify thinking in a different way because you know that you are influenced, or will you keep acting [bitter] because of it?

    Now that you know and have asked, what can you change?
    Mantra yeahhhh. Eggshells you smell.

    For me no. For some a possibility of fearing they will lose their individuality and become bitter by this.
