Looking for meanings in words, images and sounds
I think you can certainly get to the point where you believe it is!
That’s scary, isn’t it!
Not that I know of, but it can seem so. What brought this on? (and a delightful bit of Bowie 🙂 )
Some very sad moments for my country.
Ah- political 😦
Yes, it does. That’s what the whole propaganda machinery is all about.
I can imagine, Paula…
As for the thought of the day…….yes , I think that reapeted lies may influence people to percieve them as absolute truth…!
Hmmmnnnn wishful thinking maybe?!
Not from my side, by no means.

Oops no sorry, I meant people who do that…
I have used that line many times in reference to a situation where someone was told something not true about someone, but told over and over until the “lie became their truth” It is very real and very sad when it occurs
It’s frustrating. Recently I listened to an interview with a very smart and learned man (he is a priest, but a highly educated one in many fields); he claims that anyone of us tells at least 50 lies during the day. In most cases they are benevolent lies according to him, or lies known as “white” made up to impress others or to excuse oneself from commitments one would rather skip and so on. I hope that here on blog the ration is lower and that people don’t show up to lie.
A lie can become truth to the perpetrator, but not in reality…..
According to a learned man whose interview I listened to recently each and every one of lies at least 50 times a day 😦
I am sure you have nothing to be ashamed about. I just hope that people don’t come here (not talking of you, but in general) to sweet-talk me into returning them sweet comments.
That seems to be many politicians and some of the media’s mindset — say it enough times and they’ll believe it. But in my book, a lie is a lie and only the truth holds up.
In Seinfeld, George Costanza said it best: It’s not a lie, if you believe it.
Yes, I agree with Costanza.
PS What brought this thought on?
This is not the first time that I had this thought. Things are really hard here right now.
Worldwide, Politicians always know how to stuff things up.
The person telling the lie certainly starts to believe it. It is almost a rewite of events as they happened.
True. Thank you, Colline.
It becomes reality…but we all know realities differ.
True again. Thanks, Robert.
It becomes reality because the truth gets so far away from people that they lose sight of reality.
Those who lie believe in it after a while. Or need to.
And to make matters more complex, some people’s perceptions are so distorted from reality that a lie is just what you think but not what they see.
I immediately thought of politicians. 😦
They create our reality by means of lies.
Absolutely they do. A real tragedy. 😦
Sad for hard times Paula, and longing here too for truth from power.
Interesting play of words, Meg. Truth is power by definition and if it is combined with some real palpable power it should straighten the world.
Il arrive hélas qu’on se mente à soi-même… L’expérience aide à voir plus clair ! 🙂
Tu as raison ma chere. Bisous
May want to believe it is real, but it is not… A lie is a lie…
It depends how good someone is at autosuggestion, I would say.
I thought that too, though this issue can be a moral and ethical too. It is cool to see how people approach my quote.
interessante questo post
Ne sono contenta. Ma che cosa e interessante? Imagine o le parole?
entrambe le cose. si assemblano bene e fanno riflettere
Sai che poi ascoltare anche la musica?
si … ma non lo faccio subito. preferisco il silenzio per pensare. a volte ripasso e ascolto per vedere se le note mi danno altre sensazioni
Sei una persona interessante. 🙂
tutti, un pò, lo siamo
Non tutti por tropo.
