Lately I've been thinking about how I should narrate the intro to my first video showing that chemtrail evidence is a lie and how to present the data so that it is not rejected by people's confirmation bias (since those are the people I'm trying to help)… It occurred to me that it is impossible to change another person's thinking. I know this well from commenting on YouTube videos to explain how science explains persistent contrails (without attacking anyone) and then getting attacked as a "paid shill". By attacking something they believe in with science (something they think is being covered up by the government) I send them right into fight mode. My goal was to engage their logical mind and deliver facts that will give them a new awareness, but by merely expressing a views/facts that attack their belief, I engage their emotions (anger) and pull them right out of their logical mind, thereby being the guy responsible for triggering their confirmation bias. My observation is something that we all know because we know it is true about ourselves. That regardless of the subject matter, no one on earth can change our opinion about something we believe or have an understanding of by expressing their opinion to us. The only way we will change/revise/improve our current understanding or improve or correct our level of awareness is by taking in new data _on our own_ without someone shoving it down our throat. This is why all these years of commenting science to these people has never helped them. I've come to the conclusion (that is reconfirmed regularly because I am too stupid to stop commenting on YouTube to explain the science of contrails) that every single word I have ever typed to them has been a TOTAL waste of time. I've come to the conclusion that the only way to get through their confirmation bias to deliver the facts that explain the science of contrails (and that "Chemtrail planes inside" videos are showing ballast tanks) is to make a video that provides them information that can expand their awareness without triggering them by making them feel attacked... so I think I will start my narration with "This video is not meant to change anyone's belief. The purpose of this video is to present factual data and evidence. How you choose to process this new data or incorporate it into your mind is up to you." And then when they call me a "government/shill/troll" it will be a chance to develop the self-control to NOT reply to someone who is wrong as a result of their faulty awareness. I was extremely impressed with Astro's Whitebeard's confessional-like post and identified with it... which is what prompted this post. I've always thought that it is extremely important to be totally polite to these people, but lately, as a result of getting some YouTube comment reply alerts from comments I made 2 years ago I have realized that even though I don't do direct character attacks, that 2 years ago, in response to their character attacks on me I did take on a very rude tone as I described their confirmation bias and persecutory paranoid delusion to them... this primal backlash of my own apparently coming from some sort of shock about them personally attacking me for the crime of spending the time to help them by typing out how science explains persistent contrails. When I went back through these 2 year-old comments I thought, "Why did I get so upset at these people who don't know any better? When I posted that was I _really_ making these comments to help these people or was I doing it in order to boost my self-esteem by being "the expert"? I came to the realization that my first posts were/are genuinely to help people, but in many cases I "lost it" a bit as soon as the line was crossed where people started attacking my character and I became superior and condescending (violating my own code of ethics!) as I told them about their confirmation bias and persecutory paranoid delusion... not to "be the expert" (as I wondered) but as some kind of defense to the ad-homs (which is boundary failure). With my video (which is going to have to be more than one video now because it is currently 2.5 hours long!), I'm hoping to somehow tip-toe around this mine-field of egos and deliver some truth to them that can expand their awareness. What they choose to do with this new info is none of my business! All I can do is upload a video that fights the lies of the "Inside chemtrail planes" videos by delivering the evidence that proves that those videos are lies. The true test will be whether or not I have the self control to not respond to the character attacking comments! I think I'll respond to everything with this: "I see that you are having a strong reaction to the content of my video. I guarantee that everything presented in the video is fact-checked, verifiable and proven by science. Did I make a mistake in one of the pieces of data I presented? If so, please let me know, thanks!" Ultimately, I think the mistake that I have made repeatedly is responding to irrational emotional people AS THOUGH they are rational people who will "see the light" when enough science about relative humidity and ice crystals and "cirrus clouds not dissipating" is explained to them. Not so!
