Combining 2 thoughts


(1) The basic human situation called "Cartesian dualism" in which what is outside of a person gets represented or reflected inside that person.  Here we call that which is represented inside the person, their "mind" ... what is outside of a person, the "world".


This basic situation is perhaps best illustrated by one of its conciever's,  René Descartes  see Wikipedia Mind-Body-problem.

Well of course there it is not a binary situation: either change the world, or change your mind.  We sense truth when what we see in the world is accurately reflected in our minds.  One way to get that alignment is to change the world  ... Is "the pot on the stove" ? .... er, well yes because "i just placed it there".  That may seem a trivial example, but this same kind of activity hairs up to the highest level of human endeavor.   A true alignment of mind to world (or world to mind) is best achieved by active deeds.   Alternatively when our sense do not match our conceptions (representations),  changing our conceptions can be very effective in achieving a true mind/world alignment.

Yet i do not deny the LOA effect ... how i think and feel will effect what i perceive and represent from the world.  Then too there are many of us, each somewhat separated from each other and from the rest of the world by this basic situation creating these beautiful dynamic changes which we can laughingly refer to as "our lives".
