What it really counts is never at sight.

What it really counts is never at sight.

This buzz is inspired on @Ali Anani presentation http://es.slideshare.net/hudali15/snaky-assumptions-a-creative-approach






This was largely exposed by Greek philosophers, which denied taking as absolute truth anything you could see, or smell or touch.

The ultimate truth can only be seen with the eyes of the thought.

Out of this, the rest are assumptions, which can blind us from the reality.

The acceptance of what is obvious as the only truth might have its inception on mental laziness, or fear of appearing suspicious minded.

On this mindset, reluctance to try to see what is behind can be pushed up by too obvious facts or the total absence of them, in front of our physical eyes, which hallucinates the eye of the thought, the one which can see in truth.

Snaky assumptions are there in the dark, waiting to bite. You can’t eliminate them. They are inherent to the human being.

If one reads the oldest book of the humankind, it was a snake which asked the woman, the less experienced human in earth by that time, if it was true that God had prohibited the humans to eat of any tree.

-Oh no, she said, just from the sacred tree we cannot eat. 

We all know the rest of the story. 

First assumption, a snake can speak.

Second, she can hide from God’s eyes.

Third, God is hindering her from something good which she had the right to have.

Forth, the less experienced one can take major decisions unilaterally that may affect the entire group.

The eye of the thought would have seen that:

-a snake cannot speak, so if somebody is using subterfuges or sending “messengers”, an unclear and poisoned truth must be behind

-You cannot escape your decisions

-You cannot assume meanness coming from someone who has given you so much, thus a trajectory cannot be overridden by an isolated event.

Best of luck training your “eye of the thought”, in order to identify “sneaky assumptions” in your life that can kill you.

DILMA BALBI , only the people who are in the absolute certainty that they are always right all the time, might keep their beliefs not reviewed. Sadly enough, I still never met none of those. These fact, together with my blindness to find absolute certainty about anything, makes me think that reviewing from time to time my perceptions-knowledge-beliefs-actions, evaluating them accordingly with the reactions they provoke on people that I love/admire, is the way not to keep in a wrong path. About perception, you might find interesting something I wrote some time ago. Hope you like it. http://www.slideshare.net/bicefablog/collaborative-perception-3-disturbing-facts-47454337

You are completely right, @DILMA BALBI , as (reasonable) questioning tries to find (a) truth, whilst answers are always subjective, depending on your own beliefs. And yet, it is only out of the comfort zone where real success and growing might happen.

Sara Jacobovici One of the disrupting issues on this story in my opinion, Is that Eve should have made deaf ears to the snake, thinking in first place that she had no basis to doubt about God, and automatically discard any further conversation with the snake. Daily we become contaminating perceptions which, if we allow them to affect us, can lead us to sneaky assumptions. This is precisely the point to which I wanted to claim attention on the Ali Anani buzz https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/the-emerging-rethinking , the loop formed by perception-knowledge-beliefs-feelings-action-interaction-perception

A presentation by our dear Ali Anani is always an extraordinary cause to remove all the little corners (including cobwebs) in our minds. William Blake knew something about perception: “If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite.” I can only imagine a little tiny flash about it, but I “assume” it as a true truth… Ancients Toltecs knew about it as well, they already advice in their First Toltec Agreement: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@mamen-delgado/effective-communication-the-4-toltec-agreements-comunicacion-efectiva-los-4-acuerdos-toltecas-english-espanol A lot to think and unthink (if this term can be said). 😉

Thank you Ali Anani's wonderful Buzz. I love it! David, you touch on so many things that interest me; the senses, our "mind's eye" or how you refer to as the “eye of the thought”, assumptions, choices, and the story of Genesis. We are sensory beings and so how we perceive the world and give meaning to our experiences is based on our senses. A very subjective process. So it makes "sense" not to trust what we see, hear, smell, touch, taste as "truth". We are conscious beings, and so, I agree that it is the eye of the thought that needs to be trusted to help us understand what is happening around us. My interpretation of the talking snake is that the snake did actually have a voice and that it was because the woman chose to listen to the voice of the snake rather than her own internal voice or the man's voice or even God's voice that started the now famous chain of events. The assumption was that the snake had something valid to say. and in this way she blinded the eye of the thought. Finally, I agree 100% when you say, "You cannot escape your decisions." How could she think, as you say, that she can hide from her decision, her choice. We need to take responsibility for those behaviours. The woman should not have blamed the snake and the man should not have blamed the woman.

Anees Zaidi I believe we have all "tasted" sneaky meal one or more times in our life. Cheers up for the ones that survived it! Much better if we learned not to fall again in the same error. Honored to write things you find interesting.

Ali Anani Chaos could be a sneaky assumption too. Making deaf ear to the many lines written about chaos, overall I believe that chaos itself can be a lack of perspective.As an example, at the sight of a theoretical chaotic desk from one of my colleagues, I would not find any explanation to it. But maybe for him is everything where it should be. Honored to keep moving your mind wing

Dear David David Navarro L\u00f3pez- this is an outstanding buzz and I am honored to have a mention in it. You added beautiful ideas to my presentation. I am thinking about which topic my next buzz would be about: one about the survival factors of social media platforms and the second about atmospheric pressure, temperature and wind speed and their chaotic behavior. This is related to managerial pressures, warmth of work environment and the speed f change. Do we then end up in chaos no matter what we do? I feel now like selecting the second topic for it was the assumption that prevailed for centuries assuming we may predict weather deterministically that proved wrong. How many assumptions led us astray for extended periods of time because of our false assumptions? You moved the wing in my mind, David.
