When reading the Myth of the Better some text fragments resonated: “There’s always someone who thinks the exact opposite of what you think.” and “What you think is better or worse is always changing.” The fact that there is always someone who thinks the exact opposite of what you think might be explained using Keylontic Science, related to the ancient Freedom Teachings. For example reading the explanation for the keyword perception it says “every organism will have a variation of perception” which we (not you and me but all the others ofcourse) know is very true.
So it is perception which gives us context of what is better or worse and perception is in fact nothing more than an illusion. This means that what others think is “better” is their perception of better, not ours. In fact there exists no “better” (or “worse”), therefore the Myth of Better. Add to that the following: if what you think is better or worse is always changing, why would you then put so much effort in chasing the better? This leads me to question if “Better” is necessary as a placeholder to motivate people? After all, we tend to motivate ourselves by creating illusionary “better” goals. Or could we also motivate ourselves by focusing more on the quality of the journey than on the reaching of the goal? After all, we have all come on this earth to have experience, so why not focus on quality of experience instead of quality of goals? If there were no experience, there would be no learning and everything would become fully predictable. So now you see that perception is really what’s in the eye of the beholder. Happy beholder hunting!
