Before I start though, I have always wondered, would people enjoy reading about this? The thing about people is that, at least on here, they read about all the topics in the news to learn new things, and when it comes to life lessons they might think that they already know this, and that they don't need a lecture about it. This is how many people reason when they are confronted with the option of reading a blog that has some deeper meaning in it, one that tries to perhaps install a certain insight into you. Or one that tries to make you think about something that you might already know, but that you never really thought about. I like reading blogs like this because when I read a wise saying or some life lesson I feel like I can apply it in my own life and use the knowledge to my advantage. But people like reading more about news, which is why I write about news sometimes. I enjoy writing about life much more though.
"A contradiction can not exist in reality. Not in part, nor in whole."
That is the lesson that Terry Goodkind tries to teach in his 9nth book in the sword of truth series, called Chainfire.
This may seem like common sense and not a life lesson at all at first glance, but when you look more into it you realize that even though it is common sense, we often overlook this fact for various reasons. Before you point to any optical illusions etc. to prove that a contradiction can exist, remember that it is not in reality then. Contradictions can exist in words and pictures, for example, the following sentance creates a contradiction.
"This sentinse contains three erors."
The sentance contains two spelling errors, but the fact that the sentance says it contains three errors is in itself an error, and therefore the sentance contains three errors. But then, when it does contain three errors, the fact that it says it contains three errors is no longer an error, and therefore it now only has two errors, which creates a contradiction.
In reality though it is different and there can be no contradictions whatsoever. You can only be in any one place at any one time and in one state, e.g. you are either dead or alive, you can't be both. When people lie to you we often overlook this fact and almost believe in a contradiction. We also tend to believe contradictions to help ourselves. When you are married and you cheat, you cannot both be faithful and cheat, you are either faithful or a cheater. It might have been a mistake that you would never again repeat, but that wont change the facts. Not a very good example but the idea is clear enough I hope.
