Everybody has what I'm going to call their own "perception of reality". And if you could choose a quality to "improve" your perception of reality, I'm guessing a lot of people would choose ACCURACY or something similar.
Personally, after giving it some thought, I'd choose for my own perception of reality to have more ELASTICTY. I arrived at this conclusion due to several factors:
- there is NO such thing as a singular accurate reality. Those that believe otherwise are deluding themselves
- Reality is continually unfolding. The "unreal" could happen at any second in the furure
- Judging by the sheer paranois of my PDoc* (at a recent appointment) at the prospect of me ever hitting another full-blown psychosis my personal choice should be governed by limiting the possibility of my mind ever snapping again. The antidote then is a more elastic mind that can accomodate more scenarios without freaking me out and tipping into paranois.
- With the explosions in technological possibilities, now is a more important time than ever to allow for more flexible perceptions of what is realisitically possible and what is not. As one of my my gurus Philip K Dick said "we are going to have to get used to dealing with entities that can be siad to exist and not-exist at the same time."
