Reality vs. Perception: One of Many Applications of Rashomon.

Hmmmmmmm . . . . . . .

I don't usually look like Monica Lewinsky. aka: the Zoinks ©!

How about a great cup
of STFU to start your
process of waking up?

I joined neworleans by accident. In a mass LJ serial-adder move to incorporate as many high-traffic communities as I possibly could with loose connection to nflfans, this one somehow ended up on my user list instead of the American football community. I read this earlier in my morning, and I internally waxed, wow, that person, first in line of comment, walked into a field of mines and lost.

The concept of "won" or "lost" is under great internal debate, since such comments only serve well in argument, which was what the person clearly tried to do by this comment:

As usaul they are a bunch of cyy babies begging for a hand out, rather than a hand up.

Note the necessity, whenever providing "the smack," to use spell-check as the last resort for English deficiency.

I don't fault any of the combatants. What we face as a society of young adults grows, into a task of perceived impossibility, similar to a Titanic which already takes water.

Yet, at any depth of perception, there exists a skew to which the internal juxtaposes with the externals and somewhere, somehow, in the approximation of all points considered, there is empirical.

I've never touched the book, but the movie, which I viewed some time during my college years, literally changed my life. I had some understanding of the concept prior to watching Kurosawa's film, but the film helped in part to solidify my concept of the existence of reality separate from perception.

One point of view within the driving concept.
