Well we all are human beings and not a single one of us are perfect and flawless. The only thing we can rely on is what we have managed to store in our brains. Whatever we have in there needs to be trusted as the instincts that they give to us. There is an amazing amount of stuff stored in there and there is nothing else that we know of. Some of the stuff give us stronger signals than other. They tend to dominate and the ones that control our feelings seem to be the strongest. Some of us let these feelings come out and we show them as they are. Others have better control of them and the strenght to keep them back.
In SL the thing that shines through our avatars is the stuff that we have in our heads. Doesnt matter how and what we do try to hide, then finally that stuff shines through and we show our selves. Its probably more difficult to not show yourself in RL than in SL. That might be one of the tricky parts of the second Life.
There are strong feelings that shine though:
- Anger is one and that one is hard to control, but we learn everyday we live. Some have more of it than others, depening of our experiences.
- Sorrow is a very strong feeling also. As anger it can hide and with some fuel it takes over and dominates.
- Love. Well thats a Nice and strong one also. Sometimes it is followed by sorrow or even anger. Some are Lucky and stay in the zone :-)
There are a lot of feelings and we all are colored by our past. Hopefully we all can get better and better control of our brains and enjoy the life we live more and more. Sorry to say the process takes time..so try to enjoy the ride...
