Reality Feedback Loops
« on: March 16, 2007, 03:24:02 pm »
These exist as a pair of "cycles."  The BELIEF CREATES EXPERIENCE (Lo5) cycle, and the EXPERIENCE CREATES BELIEF (BIP) cycle.  These I guess you can imagine as a pair of gears spinning against each other, each feeding off the momentum of the other, creating an infinite loop.  That is, Belief creates Experience, which then creates Belief.  And so on.

This is not something that exists everywhere, obviously.  People experience all kinds of things all the time that they don't even have opinions about, much less beliefs.  That's the raw energy for the process, new unquantified experiences.  So, the Feedback Loop is something that we have sets of.  We have the "Job" loop, the "Friday Night Out" loop, etc.

In order to 'break' the loop, or force it to cope with something new, we have a few alternatives:

1. Experience something you can never believe.
2. Believe something that's incompatible with experience.
3. Put yourself in a situation where beliefs and experience can't get along, but stay there long enough so that you can't just write it off as a 'fluke.'

Somebody else run with this :P
