The Seashell Story: During a sunny day, while playing with the waves on the beach, two boys accidentally were washed off by the powerful waves caused by the strong winds. Thinking they were both about to drown with just the intent to have fun and feel brave.
Both ended up feeling disappointed and depressed with themselves. Within a couple seconds, both started arguing and blaming each other. Both started to feel annoyed at each other’s choice to follow one another through their own decisions.
One of them, suddenly pointed out where they landed next to two beautiful sea-shells. One, well rounded from the tip to the opening base and coated with a shiny bright white transparent color but with holes surrounded by thin dark ellipses. The other, a little bit flatter and a dark gray cover on it but with a decent half-way curve covering a beautiful shiny dark blue mixed with turquoise skin. Both end up bringing those seashells back to school. Praised by both their schoolmates and teachers for having these amazing discoveries. Taking in from these praises, both started to gain this ego. These values of their importance that were not existent but yet to them, that is what is all about, an importance and a means of value to be the most influential upon their schoolmates. Still, after having known each other for such a long time since early childhood.
They both knew, though, that one had to go. Competitiveness rose, straying them away from their friendships and themselves in the way they behave or talk. They wanted to fit in the crowd, not just in the intentions to fit in, but to lead the crowd. Behind each other’s backs, they were telling about each other seashells’ flaws. Having the kids side with them promising them an eternal friendship of some sort. Going on social media and exposing an over exaggerated gloriousness through barely any hard work. This type of tension has only started through such a simple thought to feel powerful within a vulnerable insecure desire invaded by obliviousness and ignorance. An adolescence that stole the seashell from a lost childhood as a means of self-revenge harming and blinding the world around them.
It is a world where everyone is at war with each other and themselves due to spontaneous realizations that come quickly to mind and make us more sensitive, vulnerable and reactionary.In Ancient Greece, Pistis and Doxa are a simplified reference to “trust” and “confidence” and to “opinion” and “acceptance”. Then came out the term Orthodoxy, which is a theory, doctrine and practice that has been factually and morally accepted. But since the beginning, we lived in a world where beliefs dominate the true meanings and purpose of guiding actions rather than indicating the truth.
It is from there, Ancient Greek Philosophers started and created the idea of Epistemology. Epistemology is the understanding of knowledge, justice with facts, and the morality and rationality of belief. It surrounds the concepts and a criteria of the birth of beliefs through concepts and justifications led with various problems of skepticism from their sources.
It always involves our questioning of facts and beliefs by saying: “What makes justified beliefs justified?”, “What does it mean to say that we know something?” or “How do we know that we know?”. This movement and theory has been led by some of the greatest such as: Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, Buddha, Confucius and Averroes. They have led and expanded this theoretical philosophical study of knowledge that floats further from many groups of people that tend to choose the extreme ways in attitudes and fear mongering narratives.
The primary problem Epistemology is addressing is to understand exactly what is needed in order for us to have knowledge. The tendency to translate from belief into an acceptance in the form of praise and glory because of strong desires within someone’s lifestyles creates tensions throughout everyone’s social habits and ideologies. Mainstream psychology and related disciplines have traditionally treated belief as if it were the simplest form of mental representation and therefore one of the building blocks of conscious thought. Philosophers have tended to be more abstract in their analysis, and much of the work examining the viability of the belief concept stems from philosophical analysis. The concept of belief presumes a subject (the believer) and an object of belief (the proposition). So, like other propositional attitudes, belief implies the existence of mental state and intentionality, both of which are hotly debated topics in the philosophy of mind, whose foundations and relation to brain states are still controversial. To this day beliefs are correlated a lot with other beliefs and theories which is how society keeps moving upwards and progressively no matter its positiveness and negativity.
Beliefs are sometimes divided into core beliefs and dispositional beliefs. This has important implications for understanding the neuropsychology and neuroscience of belief. If the concept of belief is incoherent, then any attempt to find the underlying neural processes that support it will fail.In our present time, the mental intensity and the tensions between one another are a very subtle buildup to all-out chaos within our society and moral responsibilities. Everyone is running basic principles such as: Who wants to be proven right? Who wants to defeat the one that defies their own worldview? The fundamentalists and their ideologies that corrupt moral standards with selfish intentions, by twisting the language to victimize themselves just to gain more self-benefits. How it has become a basic narrative about a competition by being part of a circle and leading it for self-serving purposes. Beliefs go in circular motions between the absolute faith in chaos or justice but only through “one’s” own eyes.
That “one” would there go on and spread such messages with techniques that I have just described. Shaming and over exaggerating a worldview to create tension, division, and provocation for the sake of chaos. Why not intensify and add gasoline to the fire and just call it a fun game at the end of the day? Nothing means anything but anything means everything now these days. We all are equal yet no one believes that. We judge based on personalities, skin color, gender, backgrounds, context and cultures no matter the situation or the context. We decide for others and then we desire the worst for others. We lust upon these ideas. We run off and feel safe ignoring the fire that we have created.
We all begin and end thinking about other’s lives from a position of ignorance. The concept of our beliefs is absolutely empty in the end. Nothing but pictures come to mind as simple metaphors while pushing away true moral standards and facts. People are gaining a state of mind in which they end up thinking about the way everything is without any empirical evidence to prove that something is the case with factual certainty. There is this mental representation of our attitudes that orient towards the likelihood of something being true on a certain fundamental idea but false in our ways of expressing it. It is the death of a moment, of an idea, and of many believes as we either move on further away from self-habits or even worsen them. Practical but dangerous, for example, the concept of death has a use for the living, while death itself has no use for anything. All we can say about death is that it is either real or it is not real.
Will we just be terminated or will we end up in another life for more chances and endless forgiveness? The concept of our beliefs is absolutely empty in the end. Nothing but pictures come to mind as simple metaphors. Practical but dangerous, for example, the concept of death has a use for the living, while death itself has no use for anything. All we can say about death is that it is either real or it is not real. Will we just be terminated or will we end up in another life for more chances and endless forgiveness? Between the way we treat life and the way, we treat death.
We are scared nonetheless because death means something to us and we need purpose before we enter nothing. Death is everywhere, and it does not have to be the death of a life.Both might think their beliefs are non-flawed and meant to bring absolute moral justice and behavior to the world (or their own countries). But every group of people is flawed no matter who it is because what all these groups overlookEveryone is flawed but no one is.
