According to the Internet searched data on the concept of the word believe, it’s proto-root stems from the Greek word, ga-laubjan, meaning, “to hold dear; or to hold with love;” in other words, to hold as truth in your figurative heart even though that which is irrational, or not possibly true, can still be upheld as truth in a person’s figurative understanding: in this way, it then capacitates a certain human mental disposition that allows someone to uphold, and live in accordance to something that’s irrational in a seemingly rational actuation (e.g., praying to idols, yet not being socially judged as a schizophrenic: or a clinical schizophrenic behavior that’s socially acceptable as a sane belief, i.e., to believe and publicly proclaim about a certain statue that cries tears of blood, and yet accepted by the peers as a true miracle). So it seems that the concept of ‘believe/belief’ is actually a figurative and a metaphorical criteria that’s solely applicable as a learned mental propensity; that is, of course, solely to the mental actuation of The-Self (the-Ego/the “I“). Many people, most of course, ‘believe’ (figuratively feel) that such a concept is either biologically inborn, or a distinct capacity of all minds; or both even: However, if that theory were to be so, then my mental awareness would have too detected such a concept to exist in mine mind, and or in mine soul (animating physical body), in which, it isn’t: This is something that is utterly devoid in mine mind; also, in every biological intricate parts of my soul. It is then in mine objective instinctual observation and scrutiny that such a concept is after all a sole impression of the figurative heart; in other words, it’s just an “emotion.” This kind of mental emotional concept simply enables an individual to figure things out with the figurative heart on matters that cannot be rationed with reason and logic. Nevertheless, the word believe has become so globally intertwined with reason that when people try to figure things out, they don’t realize that they’re using their figurative heart to sort of “estimate” (or theorize) things out with more feeling than with logic itself. And this is where confusion manifests in most conversations (Notice that the word “figurative” is a derivation of the word “figure”).
At first, my being looked up this word in many different dictionary websites, thesauruses and references, and even all kinds of etymologies; and IT kept trying to reason as to why is it that IT itself couldn’t understandably apply that word? And then, all of a sudden, when my rational faculty of my mind tried to automatically disambiguate the word believe, my being then realized that that word in of itself could not be transcribed for any use in any of my dispositions: Eventually then, it was automatically sort of flushed out of my mind; from and by the-Mind itself. The concept of ‘believe/belief’ is a word that requires an understanding of gradual upbringing: it’s like some kind of a phenomenal expression that can only be grasped from infancy – to – adolescent—isolated first without ambiguity before the person is then thrust out into the ambiguous world(s). Hence, the word believe is nothing more but a figurative feeling, a phenomenon of the figurative heart (emotions): So when someone is believing in something, or has a belief in something that’s in contrast to reason, logic and discretion, that person is then figuratively feeling (figuring out) the criteria out in question. Hence, to figure out things is to figuratively feel out things ( figuring things out = figuratively feeling things out ).
Just because it is globally acceptable that to figure things out is the same as to think things out doesn’t make it true. When someone has intellectually thought things out rationally but still uses the phrase that he/she figured it out, that’s just an automaton utterance that he/she has learned it to be so—this is a person that automatically speaks in accordance to the norm of the global social coagulum; but when push comes to shove, the concept of believe/belief finally separates from reason and logic when a criteria at hand is being debated, or argued about, is as sharp as a two edged sword that cuts to the very marrow with ease (a sword here is symbolically mentioned to emphasize that an unwanted truth is very psychologically painful to hear). For those who entirely live in accordance to a figurative life (a believed life), they are mostly apt to experience disappointing and disheartening outcomes, as oppose to those who live in accordance to a rationed life (a factual life). Frankly, the concept of believe/belief is also intertwined with the concept of trust, and neither are really as one in the same: When someone logically trusts, that someone trusts with facts; but when someone believes, that someone believes with figurative feelings in the absence of unwanted facts: Hence, when someone integrates trust with believe/belief, that’s where the confusion comes in, and possibly become blinding, even with facts, to believe in someone that’s factually not trusting at all. You either logically reason things out with your intellectual mind, or you figure things out with your figurative heart. You really can’t do both at once or you can be confused; and before you know it, you might even come to a point in whereas you won’t be able to determine the differences between your right and left hands. This is at the mental point where a lot of people can relate to a common inner battle between the rational mind and the figurative heart. And it is by this common inner experience that it is evident that no one can’t really consolidate both into one whole usage. You can try, but the outcome is at your own risks. Some many individuals don’t like to accept this truth, so they’ll disguise the debated matter, of both unequal parts, into one common wording, and that word is, “chance:” Hence, the common popular phrase on taking up chances. If the risks work out, they’ll say, “It was destiny:” but if the risks doesn’t work out, then they’ll say, “Everything happens for a reason.” But most people do not really want to accept that many of their own errors occurred at their own faults, because of integrating two aspects that cannot and will not be aggregated. This is where the idea of “chance” comes into play: a concept that allows many individuals to try and consolidate two opposing opposites, and thus enabling them to throw the dices, and possibly even play the fool on purpose; all for the sake of, “believing.”
The concept word of believe is definitely an actuation of The-Self (the-Ego/the “I”), and not for the no-self like my being is. In addition, there is also a big difference between the concepts of believe and experience; they both really are not one in the same. For example, when a person declares that he/she believes in a disembodiment existence after death, that doesn’t mean that that very person has experienced such a state. Many who testifies such beliefs are really based upon what other few have testified what they’ve imagined to have had as an out of body experiences; and some of those few even lied just to get some attention. First of all, a disembodied person cannot exist; that itself is utterly impossible: it’s exactly the same as saying that it’s possible for an ancient mummy to walk among us even though it is utterly without a brain to conduct the mummy’s body to animate. The fact is that every single thing that is made, is made of some sort of energy itself; and for those energies to continuously exist, without it being dissipating, must be contained; in other words, embodied. If an energized embodiment is not whole, whether an energy is either envisioned or invisible by our very own eyes, that energy that it itself is made of will disperse outwardly in all directions; it’s just the same as like our biological energy that’s embodied as an animating force. If our biological energy (our literal soul; not the metaphorical one) were not embodied, what then would happen to us? If our bodies were not whole with skin, how would our existences continue without that one piece of our whole embodiments? Factually, and logically, everything is made of some sort of energy; and therefore, everything then must be embodied (contained/encompassed): Hence, in all reality, to then be disembodied is to then be dispersed into nonexistent. However, if you “believe” in the illogical concept that people do exist in disembodiment states after their deaths, that then would be an illogical criteria that can solely be “believed” figuratively; not reasoned factually.
It is therefore objectively determined that the concept of the word believe is a mental complexion that’s solely learned from external origins, just the same like all emotions are; that they’re not at all biologically inborn. Since my mind is devoid of all emotions (the-Unconscious, not according to Freud), my being is then incapable of either believing or, not believing—IT just doesn’t know it altogether—never have, and never will. So the concepts of the figurative heart (e.g., Believe, belief, faith, love, hate, anger, envy, jealousy, sadness, happiness, desires, wants, lusts, greed, revenge, interests, devotion, worship, anxiety, satisfaction, depression, passion, obsession, grudges, infatuations, ambitions, etc.), are absolutely and utterly devoid in my mind; these are mental concepts that my being does not possesses at all, not even in the least; and therefore, not at all mentally experienced inwardly from my end. If it were up to my being, IT itself would’ve never known that such a thing exist; however, because IT itself has witnessed that others do experience and know about the figurative heart, my being then has no other determination but to acknowledge that such a thing do exist, however, solely for others, and not for my being.
