I have heard different theories about obtaining too much knowledge, and how once we reach that limit, the unthinkable happens...
The reason it is unthinkable is because we don't know what will happen. is there even a limit to how much we can hold in out minds? Albert Einstein thought so. He refused to learn his home address, and many other thing because he thought there was only a small amount of things our brains can hold.
I have also heard that once ones mind reaches a set limit of information it tries to separate these thoughts from the main thought process or as we look at them now, alternate personalities. There are some people that are diagnoses with having alternate personalities and are given medications to suppress these "voices" and help the host think with less distractions. I know of a few people that hear voices or act out as if they have a different person inside of them. People that can sit down and converse with themselves and come up with an answer. I know of people that can control these "voices" and communicate with them as if they were standing right in front of them. I know of people that can be basic people with basic thoughts and basic thought processes, and then the next day, they can be someone completely different. these "voices" as we call them are, by my point of view, rather basic in nature. The human mind adapts to its surroundings, as does the host it controls, the body. now if the mind adapts to its surrounding and then we think of this adaptation as a problem, we try and think of it as burden, as a curse, or as an illness. As for me, i see it as a necessity. There have been people that have gotten lost in the wilderness and survived, they told the news crews that they were listening to the "thoughts" in their minds and were able to live through... Now when we find ways to get rid of these thoughts, the only thing we are doing is killing our thoughts and the ability to think.
The way i see it, these are common grounds for the human mind to adapt upon. thoughts are the voices we hear inside our minds, the answer that calls back after asking a question. And yet we see this as an imaginary person with all the answers.
Don't let these voices go unheard, don't let these thought be unthinkable, and let your imagination run wild.
Now for the voices and thoughts that are "bad" or the ones we see as an evil self trying to get out, they are nothing more than thoughts, ones that you yourself have thought of. Every thought we have, every idea, is not lost, it is just set to the side and lost among the rest of the thoughts flying through our mind. When we get older and we can easily tell right from wrong and these thoughts come back, we quickly cast them aside, or when new thoughts arise, we do the same. The more one thinks about something, the more it grows. When we think of something for a while and then cast it aside. it is still there, and every time that subject comes up, so will that thought. Even if you don't like the thought, even if you hate it, it will still be there. We see this thought as something evil and you cant just say there is something evil in your head, you would be called crazy. Humans have become dependent on drugs and medications to solve there problems, and will find these voices as an illness that can be curd with drugs. There has been counts where those who are suppose to take meds for voices don't. When questioned about it, they usually answer with something along the lines of a school test, or anything that they needed to use deep thought on. Bottom of the line is, when you take meds like this, it reduces your ability of thought. Thus the reason i don't take any type of drugs or anything that messes with my mind. only time i will ever take a pain killer or anything that will affect my mind in any way is if it hurts so bad that i can't even breath
I want to know what everyone thinks about this, and to answer the question that might be going through your head right now, yes i do have conversations with my self, they are not public conversations and i do not speak them. I think to my self, and reply to my self. I have no need for medications of any sort, and i will never take them. I would rather die before subjecting to such pathetic ways.
The mind is the only thing we have that is ours to control, control it well, and don't let others think for you. It's your mind, not theirs. The only true freedom is the freedom of free thought, for even speech is costly in these times.
