No man is an island. Everyone is influenced by the same tide of the unconscious;
this is true, but it is something i wish were not true.
So you would forego reality for a fantasy?
That's not very logical or rational of you... if you want to enjoy existing, you need to start by realizing that you're a tiny part of the big picture, not an isolated vacuum in your own bubble in the universe.
what matters are those who are capable of influencing the currents.
i respect that you see it that way, but i disagree.
You disagree, but why? Everyone's either influencing or being influenced.
Not influencing others because of a perceived hypocrisy doesn't make you into a saint, and "refusing" to be influenced doesn't make you one either. So what is to be gained from being a sitting rock? Nothing.
It's entirely possible to influence others without them consciously following you. Ever hear of the subconscious and the unconscious? Ever start tapping on a desk or on the floor, and hear others begin to do the same following you? Or do you catch yourself following others in this way?
And people make mistakes. It's better to make some small mistakes, count your losses, learn, and try again, than to do nothing whatsoever. It's bad to be cowardly. But yeah, don't get people to follow you if you're incompetent -- This is where you take the time to become competent.
i disagree, i think right and wrong are decided based on what logic is (they should be derived from logic), so logic must determine right and wrong.
Logic and fact alone do not determine right and wrong.
You think, or you know?
So what about the biblical sense of right and wrong? Is there ever a good time to kill a person, even though it's against one of God's commandments? Or are there times when you must do it?
You must mean logical right and wrong, in the sense of inherent truth. Truth is beyond notions of right and wrong, which need context to make them as such. Right and wrong don't exist in reality, right?
