I was talking to my mom about the Power Balance medallion Daniel gave me (no, another Daniel)
he said it was an "Alien Technology"
she said she didn't want to try it then: Aliens terrified her
I assume there is life on other planets
but have never interacted with them...
(I do think about beings from other planes...)
i also don't hold Fear against things I know nothing about
more curiosity and wonder...
but it lead me to think about Belief
and I guess my mom believes in any story she's ever heard: it's out there
so many people are always "disproving" or dismissing other people's stories
pruning the edges of their realities to maintain focus
it's an intelligent decision
(if it's a choice... more likely a Nature)
but I really like thinking about
Believing All The Stories
I believe all stories that have ever been believed in
I don't worship nor fear them
but there they are
floating around reality
a reality made of stories...
