I call it my "self-government", and it consists of me and me alone, but it's a very well-defined government that consists of "laws", "cases" (which act sort of like federal laws and can control multiple laws), and "interpretations" (like the Supreme Court and determine if something is unconstitutional or not). I have a Constitution which I'll copy/paste below, which has been in effect since 2010, but I've run the "government" since 2008. Nobody else knows about this, but I have a feeling it's not something anyone else has. I'm not religious, but I follow my self-government's laws and advice very closely. To clarify, I don't feel as if somebody else is making this government, I know it's all my doing (although sometimes I surprise myself when challenging a law or case I've passed, and I actually make a decision that I don't agree with, but I enforce on myself nonetheless because it is in the Constitution). I don't apply these laws or standards to anyone else, and I'm pretty sure there's actually a case somewhere that states this. It feels sometimes as if I am my own country, and it's sort of for my own amusement, but it's also something I follow. Anyway, sorry for rambling. Here's my Constitution:

Ami, positively incredible and I'm wondering if you participate a in anything more remunerative than a remote Internet forum. So tell us; age, sex, nationality, ed., family, work, ambitions etc
I won't go into too much detail, but I'm a high school student in Oklahoma. I'm hoping for a master's degree in Computer Engineering. I have a website and a profile on this (separate) and other websites, but if I told you the username, it'd give away the rest of my identity. Honestly though, do you think I have some sort of mental illness?
I don't. That's not even up there with obcessive/compulsive disorder. It's just a different way of thinking, in my opinion.
By the way, I am not so orderly.
You have a very healthy sort of mental illness keep on that line of crzayness...
It can be an illness and healthy at the same time?
Certain "abnormality's" "mutations" might first be interpreted as illnesses by the default dominant group, they are healthy when they succeed given their usefulness...I like to believe we all have more or less a similar dialectic in our own minds going on although most of us are not aware of it and certainly not while so young. Who knows maybe this is a sign of the internet generation giving its first fruits...
i have a government in my head too
unfortunately it's an extremely repressive regime, run by somebody sort of like if hitler and idi amin had a child
my first reaction to ur question is to say of course u r then crazy, using ur head to b is crazy enough so declarin being ruled by head amendments is the point that should force u to incarceration since u cant b allowed to declare anything
it is clear what u mean fake nonreligious preachings, meanin their pervert heads ways to reach discrimination of atheists as worse religion
it is too clear how u function too stupid too low too nothing but ****
misters and misses atheists fashion for now, the point of right is to and for and of objective truth existence which exist then by definition already and clearly as obviously not smthg to guess otherwise it wont b a right of obvious for and of and to
a contrario the point is whoever dare to say smthg, so clearly refrainin the first rule to b, the thing any is so never to say
at the end the point is to point the present that would never ever respect anything as it is forever existin only to enjoy the opportunity to step on values and make fun of rights
once that point is totally clear so objective expect the worse as the worse will finally b
You're very organized. Are you nuts? Helfino. I would say, though,that amendments and voting and such pretty much beg the question of multiple individuals. Do you feel you have multiple internal identities? I don't really mean Sybil-like multiple personalities. More like (and a lot of us have this, BTW), a face and a persona for work, one for sports (your game face), one for dating, etc.
Honestly though, do you think I have some sort of mental illness?
Not at all. I harbor a similar set of rules though not nearly as elegant
First, I let my Better Half make all the decisions, which is just fine with her because after all that's the purpose of the gynecomorphous set
Otherwise I emphasize the numbers 1 and 3, especially the latter. In our first 15 years for instance, I made it a point at every opportunity to put something away; but when she finally objected that I leave a mess, I switched from one such putaway to three at a time
In my system other important numbers are 6, 9, 18, 27, and 81
(Now, 6 is questionable since it entails the number 2. However it's useful when 3 isn't enough and 9 is too many)
At first my system might seem silly but Ami I imagine some would say the same thing about yours. In my defense, avoiding decisions I haven't experienced a full-blown headache in 60 years
well, prepare urself then to ur end
u r provin that past is forever truly the past, while i prove that the future is what bring up present rights by burrying down the past forever
Self governance is not a new concept. So you are not crazy, you just have too much time on your hands, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
With my apologies but I could no longer resist
if u govern urself moron how would u deal with others or recognize any glimse of existence which is exclusively the reality of else concept
self is u moron not smthg to rule by inventin its constitution rights
Ab, it's seldom clear whom you're addressing so be sure to use the "Reply" link each time
Our faculty of reason enables us to organize our collective thoughts without hesitation. Without self governance, even animals can not survive. Get your facts straight. Critical thinking goes hand in hand with self governance. Lack of critical thinking by general populations and their legislators leads to outrageous ‘con’ behaviors
no that is the lie u consciously or unconsciously mean to abuse endlessly
all and any is for a reason that is why the evil one life got the winner prize since past existence is the present killin all
with ur reasons and its reasonnings u r making that evilest could b perfections very much alive, it is anyway truth ways to mean priorities and what come first really ahead by bringing out the worse always there as the only present clear absolute living existence
truth is the only right and fact
in objective abstract terms, truth is simply the value of what is constant alone so what is clearly seen to b considered subjectively as else
what is constant so objectively perceived as an object freedom has the value of existin really so wherever u r it is the present value that clarify and support objects realities and life
but also what is constant is the value of constant value, so infinite present value in superior means of consatnt needs to constancy values for any and everything
if noone was focusin on inventin himself he would b forced to behave as being real then everything would b perfect bc there is no doubt that present exist clearly n absolutely from ever to always while future is the plus a bit beyond it but the present is an absolute actual active source of objective values
what prove what i say being correct, is the true justification of self control, which also prove how u r a liar meaning to abuse what u know by killin its truth
true justification of self control is resistence to evil possessions and forces, as the only way to mean willin to escape powerful abuse on urself rights while sittin upon
true justification of self control is individuality for true existence, so the opposite of self being
self control in truth is about the true self that has no matter form while is relative to truth freedom meaning ur future freedom rights to b present free individual active energy too as the source of free rights supports and realisations
u reverse everything bc u clearly mean to abuse what u know about existence positive constant reasons for eternal lies and crimes instead of constant right healthy wealthy realities
look, when u know smthg how does it become ur perspective alone and not that thing alone recognized existing???
how u become more by knowin smthg existence??? howw howwwwww
if smthg exist so u aknowledge it how dont u become less by being forced to accept then its fact right of existence too
how when u aknowledge smthg existence u become absolutely right in jumpin on it to possess it
u r provin how u belong to the forever past existence which is the biggest monster ever now alive
enjoy ur eternity im sure he got a lot of good surprises for ur tastes by possessin u fully forever
just to make myself more clear bc i could look like meaning to lie about everything too
for me it is a fact that u cant go anywhere else for sure, but me is also the subject that know how only truth matter so never myself nor my true self even if it could become absolutely right
so for me i post ur ends in the means that only truth is, so even if i die or u or worse to u it doesnt change the fact that only exist and each there must keep repeatin it, u must b slaves to truth i mean truly possessed not ur fun with ur liars gods and ur life through the evilest true existing past one life
truly possessed is that u cant say a word unless it has a connection with truth u do not exist only truth exist capishi\\///
