- A story you are telling yourself, whether or not it is true. Another way to say memory. Belief says, "this is the way it is" or "this is what happened" and in so doing says "all other possible interpretations are false." That makes belief analogue interpretation. Two-pole thought. A black and white picture of reality. A way of programming one’s self. A trick you can manage to play on yourself. Potential misperception. A thought formed around that which in truth you cannot see or know. If you could see into the dark piece of reality, you could know what is there and not have to hold beliefs about it. Is what you believe to be true actually true? Is what you remember what actually happened? Have your beliefs ever let you down? Who chooses your beliefs? Does anyone else have the power to do that?
