False Memories

Memories can be falsified. As time goes on, your memories will fade and you'll remember things in a deviated & distorted way, probably even different from how they actually happened, or the most dangerous one, remember events that did not take place at all. To stay protected from false memories, write down your predictions, thoughts and feelings the very moment the events are taking place, instead of simply trusting one's memories, because for a normal human mind, memories can be very deceptive.

Skepticism - we know very little with any certainty

The central belief of Skepticism is that there is little we can know with absolute certainty. There will always be a second opinion or a different perspective.

The Greek Pyrrho of Elis, and the Roman Sextus Empiricus thought recognizing Skepticism is the best thing philosophy can give us.

Falling in love

To us, being loved in a relationship is perhaps the highest ideal. It gives our lives meaning and purpose. Being loved validates our sense of self-esteem and soothes our fears of loneliness.

Our brains are also wired to fall in love. Dopamine provides a natural high and ecstatic feeling that can be as addictive as cocaine.

The Zen View Of Morals

Evil cannot be destroyed, any more than good can, because they are polar opposites of the same thing. Destruction and creation, chaos and order; opposite aspects of reality, in tension with one another, are necessary to keep the whole going: the unity of opposites.

Zen makes no judgment about good or bad besides saying both are necessary to make the universe dynamic. Zen has no particular moral code and The Noble Truths are not moral teachings.
