Is it possible to be original

2 years, 2 months ago

With all the humans that are or ever have been alive that are or were thinking thoughts all the time do you think its possible that you are really thinking a thought that nobody has ever thought? I do.

thinking of the same symbol of the english language? maybe. having it mean something relatively 100% accurate person to person? negative. if life is a hallucination then the symbols within the hallucination are hallucinatory and the real meaning is where the energy is located within the maze. people learn lessons at their own pace, some learn in completely different orders, maybe backwards. every thought we think of is heavily influenced by what lessons you have learned, and what lessons need to be learned.

The way I see it, originality isn’t about thinking new thoughts, but the same thoughts being expressed in a different from the universally accepted way. Drinking through your nose and sneezing from your ears.

Even though a thought may not be original, the sum of every thought we experience creates an unique individual.

With new situations come new thoughts, we have things now that never existed before, as has nearly every era, and thoughts evolve in that sense. Even if it is just a slight tweek, a reimagining or reverse engineering, there is an originality to it. I think every thought we have is original, even when we are studying and understanding the thoughts of others, we have our unique fingerprint to it.@onewithyomoma,

I Believe that been original is expressing your thoughts the way you wish. There can be people with the same thoughts than you but i dont believe that is posible that both express them in the same way. just my humble opinion

Every thought is as a snowflake. They are all original.

Lame still exists though.

You are original. There is no one who has ever existed, or who will exist who thinks like you, looks exactly like you, and speaks as you do. You are the only you.

Also, look around you. Look out the window. Maybe you see a bird. Sure there are hundreds of its kind in existence, but that little bird is the only one exactly like it in all of what you see and all of what you will ever see. That bird is the original.

@onewithyomoma, The subject manner of a thought may not be original, but every thought in itself is original. You cannot think the same way anybody else. All of your experiences are original, and you draw on all of them with every waking moment and this would make every thought you have original.

@onewithyomoma, I think so. I once had a creative writing teacher who told us on the first day of class that there are two ways to look at the realm of ideas: one, that there are infinite ideas; or two, that there are really only a handful of ideas to choose from, but that we as individuals tweak those stock scenarios and create all-new stories from those. I’ve also heard that originality is really just the sum of an individual’s influences, honed by first copying and then tweaking. Bob Dylan’s first album, for instance, was supposedly mostly cover songs.

I guess you could say that everyone’s different in their own way, but I would consider only a few people to be original.

It’s like a piece of music. Everyone may think of one particular note. Note after note may build up an original piece.
