If you cannot back up your opinion by naming an expert, many will not even consider what you say

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    Unfortunately, even when you back up your opinion by naming an expert, many will STILL not even consider what you say. It used to bother me, it doesn’t anymore.

    I think it’s until people have personal experience of something out of the ordinary, then they MIGHT be open to hearing new points of view with or without the stamp of the expert opinion.

    People fear authority, and they won’t bother to cultivate their own authority over themselves either.

      As you say, unless you have had a direct experience of something, you cannot possibly connect to it.

      Humans hate or fear authority, yet at the same time wouldn´t dream to live without it.

      Who could they otherwise blame for their shortcomings…?

        I sincerely question this statement. May I ask you Julien, what empirical evidence you have to back your wordings up?
        Because I suspect there is none… 😉
        I would never take your word for it. That would be believing. You want me to become a believer? Or a mere conciderer?
        Well, I may concider it…
        Do you believe me?

  2. I don’t require an expert to back up my opinion!
