What would you do if you saw that a person was saying nice things to you, but thinking ill of you at the same time? That would make a conversation even more difficult to follow then it already is. ;)


I make that assumption based on observation. To quote Dr. House, "Everybody lies."

In my case, this is more like an obsession than an interest. "Life as an observer" started at around 6 for me as well, and I still study humans as if it were my full time job - although it isn't that and never has been. They are fascinating, complex, and still endlessly proving "experts" wrong :)

Oh god no!! I don't want to know what they think. My brain is scary enough!!

Yeah. I suppose I should qualify what I wrote. I'd like to be able to read people's minds so I could find out what their way of thinking is like. But I wouldn't like to know what people thought of me. I probably wouldn't read the minds of my parents, or people who would be thinking about me a lot, or read someone's mind while having a conversation with them.

I am very fascinated by prehistoric people like homo naledi who may have lived millions of years ago or more recent. They haven't been able to date the fossils yet.

I read the article...So...we're engineered and this is just one of the rejects until they got it right? (Please note tongue in cheek)

Please show respect for the ancestors. (also tongue in cheek)
I wouldn't assume it will ever be gotten right and I am sure they were probably just as 'right' as we are, or more so.
They weren't the ones destroying the planet.

I'm also very fascinated by people. I like walking around my part of town and seeing all the people and how their different characters shine through. I like the human variety that I see around my area. I also like to watch documentaries on historical figures as well.
