Why We Always Want What We Don’t Have

We are surrounded by things that we don’t have access to. We buy things in a desperate attempt to improve our lives. Sometimes these products are things we really didn’t need. Sometimes these products are not so useful. And sometimes you just don’t want to purchase something you can’t afford. I know what it’s like to need things and want to buy them. I’ve tried the self-help and consumerism methods, but they only served to make me feel worse. I wanted to get in control so I figured I’d try the “new” approach.

The self-help and consumerism approaches all lead to frustration. I was frustrated, but more than that, I felt betrayed because these two approaches didn’t address the root cause of the frustration and also didn’t address the root cause of my feelings. I could only find relief in the pain of an unsatisfactory conclusion and the fear of being stuck in a rut forever.

This brings me to the current state of the planet. While things certainly haven’t changed, and some things have improved, we now have an extremely dysfunctional system. The current situation on this planet is one of a system that is extremely vulnerable to the actions of the elite, who do not seem to care about the system they’re manipulating. The system, which I call “The Matrix,” works in the following way: There are two sides of the “Matrix”: The real world on one side of the Matrix and the world inside the Matrix on the other side of the Matrix. The “real world” is basically the physical world. There is a great deal of misinformation, misinterpretation, misinformation, and confusion about what happens inside the Matrix, but the truth is that the Matrix is the physical world. We have physical reality, yet in our “real world” the things that actually happen are not real. They are only thoughts, opinions, concepts, and emotions. Thoughts, opinions, and concepts are created by the brain, but they are not real thoughts, opinions, or concepts. I’ll discuss this more later.

There is a great deal of false information on the interwebs about what happens inside the Matrix. You can read a very good blog post that discusses false information extensively. Most people are aware that the Internet is a major source of information, but they are unaware of the extent of the false information. I can’t tell you how many times I have come across information or information sources that I know to be incorrect or false just because I had not read them very carefully. The problem is that you may not know what you’ve been exposed to until it is too late. You might not even know you were exposed to it until you’ve seen the information in another way or it is too late to return to it.

I recently came across an interesting article on a website that discusses “The Matrix” and their beliefs about whether or not they believe the “real” world to be real or fictitious. It seems they are very well versed in the matter. The website is called “Rationality Is for Losers,” as they put it. Their beliefs are very similar to mine; they believe it is unlikely their lives will get any better. I guess these types of people don’t understand how the “real” world works; most people understand how the real world works, but we don’t understand how the “unreal worlds” work. It would be interesting to read a discussion of the real world through the eyes of this website, which is how I’m sure they would think about it.

The main purpose of the article is to describe some “myths” they use to try and explain the “real world:”

“Myth 1: The Matrix is completely imaginary. Fact: The Matrix is not real. Myth 2: The Matrix is completely free or infinite. Fact: The Matrix can be used as long as a controller is in place; at best, the Matrix is finite.”

The most interesting part of this blog is the following:

“Myth 3: The Matrix contains reality and creates truth.
