Only someone like me can see idealism as the reality. Though it contradicts itself the reality is that my idealism of how the world should be encompasses my world.
Idealism is the concept of what could be; the glimmer of hope beyond the horizon. It’s the world as it could be but is not. Many people consider Star Trek the world that could be if only certain things were real but are not. That is the best way I can explain idealism.
Idealism maybe the source of my endless possibility belief system. Sure what I believe maybe very idealistic but it’s those beliefs, those ideals that make me who I am. The endless possibilities are my ideas of what is and what isn’t yet.
When I asked others about what they think idealism is they said the exact meaning of the word is. Idealism is simply what could be but is not si what they said. But the way some people talked about it…as if idealism was a real thing. That made me think that idealism can be reality if we believe our ideals to be the reality as it is.
This time I’ll discuss idealism alongside realism. As I have probably reiterated over and over again in this post idealism isn’t reality but then again it is. Realism is a system of beliefs that can contradict each other. Idealism is the beliefs that aren’t real as of yet or may never be. But if beliefs can contradict each other in realism than I believe that my belief of idealism is reality as it is though it may not be necessarily the way we might want to believe it is. Confused? So am I. But the point is I believe in a ideal reality. The reality can be an ideal if I believe it to be. Most people once they meet me don’t believe I’m real, as if a kind soul like me could not exist. It hurts when they say that but the fact is I believe in my true self so that false reality is who I am. I am the ideal reality, if that makes any sense.
