It always amazes how two people can look at the same situation so very differently… I know this makes life even more interesting but sometimes, it just amazes me… and then I wonder, do we have conscious and subconscious perspectives that actually show the true us that we are really scared of revealing.
The other night, a friend and I shared a room on a trip away. This wasn’t the first time and potentially not the last. As always, there were giggles, chats, conversations in the darkness- just like a slumber party should be. This time, there was a twist, it went on way beyond our sleep. My friend started talking in “its” sleep. I have had friends talk (Tigger, remember the Amazon?) in their sleeps, mumble in their sleeps, and so on but this was different- it went on for almost 45 minutes and it covered some very serious topics. It was as if there was a part of my friend wanting to reach out, it was being as candid as possible, as honest as could be and laying itself bare- naked to the core. Things were said, things that were rude, things that shocked me, things that made me realise how similar the two of us are yet again.
The things it does in real life and the things it said that night just do not match. The things it thinks in real life and the things it said that night do not match. The weird thing is much of what was said that night are things I think- and admit to openly. So the subconscious and the conscious do not match, they don’t merge and there is a gap there… is this part of the reason why sometimes someone’s perspectives surprise you? Is this the reason why someone does something that one would not normally consider a move they would expect of them? Is this the reason why schizophrenia arose?
And so I bid you adieu with yet another theory mulling away in my head (always knew I had a scientific head!).
Ciao ciao world.
