Shared Reality

A great post from George Breeds site.
I only check out his work once in a while but sometimes something that he writes just clicks.

Trance-endental

When a person thinks something to be so,
a trance state is formed.

When two or more people think something to be so,
a mutual trance is formed.

This mutual trance is called society or the world.

Anyone who speaks from outside my trance
is a danger to my trance.

Anyone who speaks from outside our trance
is a danger to our trance.

Laws are formed and enforced to protect a trance.

The trance must not be blasphemed.

Those who blaspheme a trance are dealt with harshly.

This is so within families and organizations,
and among governments and religions.

A more enlightened trance ( a light trance) is one
whose members know they and we are in a trance.

A light trance is more apt to produce tolerance, even Love.
