    Have you ever thought that you are the product of everything you have ever read and there for you write what you know or you read what you want to into the written words you read? I would think that there were times that it is important to question the references and the topics covered  in education yet I am asking the readers, since it is a writing forum and there is need for my asking.

      Reading is just one part of many on who we are. Ideas is one thing and experiencing it,  is knowing.

    It has more to do with all the living I've done, ans I suspect the same is true for most writers,

    To some extent, yes, writers are indeed a product of their preferred reading list, aka their environment, as they draw upon specific or general elements of the works they have read, or were influenced by. This coincides with their internal ideology and approach to literature. We all have inspirations, handicaps and fallback's. And, there is a certain brilliance in that we should not undermined or dumb-down.

      Believe nothing that you hear, half of what you see, everything you feel.

        I like the faces of the damned in the relationship that it all is of the same source, be glad nature created machines to save nature otherwise you would not be here. We could take it away with a switch.

          The most powerful natural machine mankind has been for 200,000 years has been the brain.

          The internet has been about the best invention tool the last half century. If your talking about the elitists (I know their secrecy society) who controls the media and who control the masses minds. If they switch us all off our truth communication, their will be a revolution that changes it all back. For abuse has always been the largest game changer in human history.

            no matter, the energy that bred their lies was the tree deaths in the killing fields of no death and life, just constant chemistry. Muses (the joke) told me in her lie, it never mattered to me save the trees. They are the projections of all the education they gave beings to learn about the attachments to meaning that we associate with. Hope they used my brain for spirit science and it harmed humanity for they had reached into death to see the truth of cursing gods.

              You think more kindness and less Gods would help?

      1. I am more first hand on what I eat than what I read.
      When someone is writing, unless it's their experience. Other translation would be second handed or third handed down or often Media a pack of lies mixed in with truth.

        Then you know of the illusion of projected needs and choices. You choose to see what you learn. I was damned for my beliefs, look what you are now? No wait you cannot see because they damned the internet as a sin and it was made of nature and a way to save nature. Be you damnation then or live in the void, where you belonged for they damned creation.

          There is a lot of damning creationship with artist.
          It seem most people only want us to be entertainers and not think so deeply.
