Everything we Hear is Opinion Not Fact

Everything we Hear is Opinion Not Fact.

 

 

"Everything we hear is an opinion, not fact. Everything we see is a perspective not the truth."

~ Marcus Aurelius

 

We live in a world where we are constantly being told what to think, thanks largely to mass media. Ironically many people would like to think of themselves as 'independent thinkers,' but just how independent can a person be if they are so influenced by the opinions of others? Like millions of people around the world, I have been watching the US elections unfold with great interest. The quote above gives great insight as to why elections are fraught with contention.

 

The quote sends a very clear message that what we see and hear are often not fact but a perspective of what we believe to be true. For example, I’m sure you have witnessed two opposing views on the subject of religion, politics, science etc, both of which claim to be the truth. Of course this creates tension because we have all been told that there is only one truth. Now, take that one truth and add to it multiple perspectives, hmmm... can you see the problem?

 

When we seek out the truth, we look for facts because facts are dependable and give us certainty. But what we tend to forget is that it's our perspective that shapes the way see and hear everything.
The way you view the world is dependent on your mindset, attitude and objectivity, all of which has been influenced by a perspective you have adopted, good or bad. Your truth may not the next person’s truth, why? Because each individual carries their own perspective based on their unique experiences, and yes you can argue until you are blue in the face that your truth is based on fact … but whose facts are you referring to?

 

I am fascinated with how the human mind works, we have such potential to create amazing things yet we get so caught up in trying to prove that our way is the only way, the only perspective worth seeing or listening to. Are we really the independent thinkers we say we are when we refuse to acknowledge that other perspectives exist? Your opinion is valid but it's not the only one. Your beliefs are relevant and important but it too is not the only one - and that's a fact.

 

Perhaps 'independent thinking' is more about awareness. Being aware of why we think the way we think and understanding that the truth is something we need to arrive at for ourselves, not because someone told us it is the truth. And so I leave you, with something to think about.
