Two words that need to be remembered and used…

August 15, 2012

on a daily basis are objective and reality. Definitions found at http.//www.dictionary.reference.com/browse/objective  (same for reality) respectively. For this post, #’s 5, 6, and 8 are used for objective and #’s 1 and 4 , plus Medical Dictionary  for reality. For convienence the definitions are as follows:

Objective: 5. Not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased. An objective opinion. 6. Intent upon or dealing with things external to the mind rather than with thoughts or feelings, as a person or a book. 8. Of or pertaining to something that can be known, or to something that is an object or a part of an object; existing independent  of thought or an observer as part of reality. Note: the word independent is underlined  in  the  online definition, but my underline was not available, so I bolded / italicized instead. Reality: 1. The state of things as they are or appear to be, rather than as one might wish them to be. 4. philosophy a. That which exists, independent of human awareness. b. Something that exists independently of all other things and from which all other things derive. Medical Dictionary(same page, American Heritage). The quality or state of being actual or true. The totality of all things possessing actuality, existence, or essence.That which exists objectively and in fact.

When placed together the term is Objective Reality. It is all but outlawed in this era. There are signs that it still has a little life, but unless it can take in great gulps of air and build its strength back, it will collapse like a diseased set of lungs. The strength of the media has weakened the people. When people see something with their own eyes and hear it with their own ears it still does not register with them that it is real. Unless it fits. Objective reality has no filters. It simply observes and acts accordingly. If I run bathwater and step into it, the hotness will send me back onto the bathrug in mere seconds. This is objective reality. If someone tells me, oh, you are just too sensitive, I reject this with a clear mind, knowing  my body knew best for that fraction of a second it felt the too hot water.  It was a real fact  and no amount of trying to shame me and tell me I’m too sensitive is going to get me back into the water until it has cooled.

 When I was a child, I would stand and pour a small amount of Coca Cola into the ground and imagine how great it would be if it grew into a tree. My imagination could see the  branches hanging, with little coke bottles waiting for me to come and pick them. It was a longshot. Even then I knew it to be impossible, yet daily there are those who know in their heart of hearts that the things that are, will never ever be, even though it looks like it is.  Did that make sense? It  will, if you have any  shred of objective reality. Breathe deep.
