- The Golden Measure of Perspective. Fiction and reality. The distinguished divided look between human beings and being inhuman, being imaginary and being real. Subjective and objective.
Human beings can be seen subjectively and objectively; being seen subjectively reveals the emotional human elements of what they are and when seen objectively they can make the person, place or thing an objective goal such as a product/result of their work. Humans are interesting in that they actually don’t have to make sense of what they are and where they are going. This is true in that, their meaning of life doesn’t have to mean anything at all. It is all just assumed that people have a place and time to get somewhere. The expression of life as a body in this world is just a vessel for experience. Ideally we want to feel happy, fulfilled and find great enjoyment in life.
We talk about being humans and humane all the time but what is it to be the opposite, objectively defining us and as a result making us inhumane? The idea of being inhumane means that we are selfishly goal oriented and we want to pursue dreams. Some times this drives us in a way to fulfill us with profound thoughts and life because life sometimes works into your world subjectively whether you acknowledge it or not. There is no pure experience subjectively and objectively based on the golden means model of balance. One cannot exist without the other even when identified as separate existing entities.
Human beings can be imaginary and a figment of your imagination. The ones that you think about in your head and speak to are separate from who they are in real life. They may have names and different identities but “You are you, I am me”. When something is real, they can affect a person the moment they wake up and realize their reality. A amputation of a leg or arm is a very real reality. People with mental illness have a very real reality also. Life is very real for a victim of mental illness only through the environment, circumstances and conditions they are put through. There is also a stigma that lessens their legitimacy and this hurts their future.
Life must be embraced but a distinct separation of what is real and what is not is very important and must be established. What is imaginary in the real world and what is conjured by the mind. These are the boundaries and lines of the fictional world. Things cannot be without these known boundaries and reality is at stake if divisions of such worlds are not distinguished.
The golden measure of all things should be accounted for in all systems. Life is not without taking into consideration moderation of things such as fiction and legends in a human life. There must be some imperial system and a grand foundation of what we build our worlds around and it should always include ourselves for, by, from, to the people. It is important that life be made with a balance of imaginary and the real. Paradoxes may exist and you may end up a hypocrite of what you sought to be in the end but life isn’t without surprises. Life is what you make out of it, so enjoy life – seek simple kindness, love and compassion.
