Is anyone real anymore?
Throwing out a Saturday morning topic.....


Why is it that it seems everyone these days is always someone else? It seems that there is an underlying motive or personality that always rears in the times when doors are finally being opened.

Are the days of the handshake deal really gone? If not, where are these people that mean what they say and say what they mean?

Trust, to humanities detriment, has become a multifaceted term that at one time meant something. Something that was attached to a length of time. These days, it's 'trust while convenient'. Don't hand out something whole, unless you are ready to get it back in jagged pieces, tied to mendacious reasoning.

"Let's make a deal", "I'll pay you back", "I mean what I say"


Why is this getting so bad?

Everyone is somebody else. Our fractured egos don't know how to remain present.

Maybe so, but does not the ego focus on one unique area of time when dealing with another singly?

I don't know. We all play different roles depending on who we're interacting with. Maybe you should look at your own behavior when you're encountering an unreal person. Perhaps you could force the other person to play a different role?

Yes. But not everyone. My first thought is to say when people have "social contracts" they tend to fit the bill whenever they can to act like they're following these contracts. Especially when their peers can observe it as such.

The causes of these social contracts are the result of the environment they breed in I guess. Tieing in with what octopus said about you effecting them.

I lost over 75k on a handshake deal. That was the last time I trusted anyone in business dealings I should say....

But it was by the shaking of the hand, looking in the eyes and meaning what we say. I delivered and when it came time for the payday.....well you know the rest of the story...

The human race is on severe decline morally, physically, spiritually.

Thing seem to go faster toward something that will change us drastically on every level or destroy us to restart another species that will be more fit.

Just look at the dinosaurs it look like someone start playing with lifeforms and figured that the dinosaurs were not fit enough so he destroy the work and start again with another life form that evolved in humans.

And my feeling is that someone is ready to destroy the new life form seeing it is not behaving the way he like.

What would the new specie would be remain in that someone idea.

That would be the business side of what I am talking about. I had a deal like that with a 'friend'. It was only a grand, but I never saw any of it. He avoids me like the plague now. Funny that.
