Mistakes aren’t too interesting. How can something so common be fascinating?
Except when you see a pattern in the mistakes.
A random blunder might earn a chuckle. But when folk across the world make the same error in the same way, it’s sign of something deeper.
Maybe even a fundamental truth of the human condition.
All that research into cognitive biases shows we humans tend to be optimistic, superstitious, bad at probability and easily swayed by irrelevant details. We fail simple logic exercises in predictable ways.
All because of how our brains like to process information.
So when many people write “spoopy” on a sign or cake instead of spooky…
Or “creppy” when they mean “creepy”…
What does that mean?
Why spoopy and not skooky?
I’m sure there’s a deep, mystical answer to that.
But the general answer is sometimes you set an intention and something goes wrong in the brain. Maybe you’re just tired right now and struggle to keep your thoughts in order. Or maybe you listen so closely you forget to go into the flow.
No matter how it happens, it happens on a deeper level of your thinking.
Parts of your mind that are normally outside conscious awareness.
I say “normally”, because there are ways inside. After all, just because something is unconscious that doesn’t mean it’s outside your ability to influence.
The more you train your mind, the more inner influence and insight you gain.
It’s Halloween in a week or so, and we’re already seeing the social media comedians strut their stuff.
“Who needs Halloween when the world is this scary lol!”
This joke is wrong on two counts.
The world is beautiful – it just happens to have some scary things in it. That subtle distinction might save your sanity.
And this is the perfect time to explore your fear. There’s research showing that fans of horror movies have handled things better than other people. Why? Because when you practice darkness, you get better at dealing with it. Dark stories allow you to feel fear, horror and shock in a controlled context. That’s why the folk stories from medieval times, when you’d be married and murdered by your 20s, were full of violence, death and unhappy endings.
The Pollyannas who say you should only think bright thoughts cultivate the worst darkness.
If you’re feeling anxious, afraid or that the days disappear too fast with nothing to show for them, then it’s time to face and embrace what’s inside you.
