For the love of Irrelevance

0 0

Our subconscious minds contain a vast library of information. Our dreams draw upon this vault of information and make manifest stories with no apparent logic and no lessons worth learning. Dreams are most often accompanied by strong emotions, overwhelming in their power and scope. People tend to attach significance to things they can’t rightly understand and see meaning where none exists. Dreams often produce emotions that linger well into our conscious state, affecting our behavior in strange ways and causing strained relations with some that we encounter. These strong emotions spring up from a part of the mind we have no control over, and we lack understanding of why this occurs. Our conscious minds seek to make sense of the nonsensical ascribing meaning to fairy tales that are our dreams, dreams not only of the subconscious but the dreams we often have in our waking state.
Love, or what we refer to as love, materializes as if out of thin air. It’s not there one moment, and suddenly it appears wreaking havoc in our lives and even in the lives of those around us. The subconscious, the arbiter of strong unexplained emotions, produces the feeling we call love; unlike our conscious mind, it seems to lack the will for self-preservation. So often, when people say that two selves are fighting a constant battle with each other in each other, they aren’t far from the truth. We are, in fact, our own worst enemies, and many of us don’t even know it. I m not sure that even armed with that knowledge, we’d be up to the task of taking control completely of our lives and our choices.
We greet each day, imagining we have free will and control of the course of action we choose to take. Do we? I propose that free will is an illusion that most of our activities are influenced by the subconscious, and we aren’t even aware that it is happening. Why would anyone choose to bind themselves to another to essentially be that person’s slave at their own expense of their own free will? The answer is that no one would if free will was indeed something more than an illusion. Free will is another lie we tell ourselves to create the illusion of control where there is none.
When we fall in love, our conscious mind develops rationalizations that seek to explain in a logical sense why we feel the way we feel. As a product of our subconscious, love, like our dreams, is devoid of rational thought and defies any logical explanation. Yet, our conscious mind creates narratives for why we feel this way, crafting a story to create an illusion of choice. Suppose you examine the reasons why you feel any strong emotions, whether it be love or hate. In that case, you will find the rationalizations you developed to be self-deceptions and uncover no logical reasons for why you feel what you feel. The irrational defies objective explanation, and thus we are left to formulate subjective interpretations of our realities wholly unique to us.
Each of us surveys the world before us and sees an entirely different construct, influenced by emotions deep within us we can’t even begin to explain. The unexplainable throughout human history has been explained through the supernatural. We have tried to explain the ethereal with the ethereal. How can you argue with an explanation you can’t even begin to quantify? Mystery explained by mystery is no explanation. We, humans, love to kick the can down the road, putting the responsibility of life’s mysteries on powers beyond our control, powers unanswerable to anyone but themselves. We are the architects of our success and our destruction. The responsibility is ours and ours alone.
Love is deception, and we are deceiving ourselves. One-sided relationships proliferate because one party is always caught in the grips of the insanity that this so-called love produces, and the other remains rational. Marriages fail, and partners cheat because they can, and one is always left holding the bag. One is always willing to forgive, and one is always ready to lie and cheat because one knows one can. Love doesn’t conquer all; it conquers those that allow themselves under its sway. It destroys reason and common sense. We have little understanding of the subconscious, but it controls our lives in ways beyond our abilities to censure. If we expect to advance as a species to grow morally, then we must understand this aspect of ourselves so that we might wrest some control of our lives away from that which we have so little control.
