Most of our psycho-cognitive issues come indisputably from the interface through which we react, we think, we program, we decode and we psychologically and psychosocially interact with people; this is fact.
Not necessarily physical people, the tangibility in the relationship in society.. but also and especially in regard of the very abstraction of people and the whole container of layers and patterns the perception of people develops and projects within the psyche..
Unquestionably the most used ”tool” the many use to interface themselves with the others is the behavioural attitude to compare..
Comparison indeed creates boxes which almost always generate institutions in thinking, behaving, accepting or rejecting..
For example; within a gathering of people who met for the first time, the common attitude is to ask one to another “what do you do?”. As long as the individual respond with “I’m an architect”, “I’m unemployed”, “I’m a healer”, “I’m a student” and so on.. so long the preservation and the exchange of boxes does not bring into being elements of friction or disturbance.. while the entire inter cognitive/psychological behaviour, which is the interface, functions through the fuel of comparison…
If a subject answers “I’m a thinker, I am a human being in the act of living and observing my own life”.. then elements of nervousness and distress most likely permeate the interface .. even rising silent, latent or manifested opinions and deductions which interpret such answer like something impertinent, or even arrogant and asocial.. while instead it’s the most logical answer..
It seems that the act of thinking and existing outside of comparison manifests factors of discomfort among people.. ’cause the interface used outside of comparison does not respond nor apply pre-packaged boxes.. The observation of this attitude brings into being the obvious and clear vision of the difficulties that take place in the minds who do not inquire in their “be in, play in and with boxes” when it comes to deal with an interface which is outside of those boxes..
As well it is so self-evident to detect how the quick attitude and even urge to compartmentalize the (perceived like so) “anomalous interface” into a specific category and comparison .. rises so rapidly in the minds of the subjects who are interacting with such an “anomaly”..
It’s definitely clear that comparison is our major drug.. Boxes make us feel safe..
But few interrogate themselves by inquiring in the following question which is: “are we safe at all along this daily compartimentalization of boxes?” Have we ever been safe, psychologically safe, in this kind of modality of living through pre-packaged interfaces?
