Deconstructionism: to disect a text until all the contradictions and underlying meanings are uncovered.

Self-Deconstructionism: Deconstructionism: to disect one's own beliefs until all the contradictions and underlying meanings are uncovered.

This is the first belief I have decided upon in my quest for truth.

I believe this belief is essential to all those who wish to rid themselves of dogma an bias.

Which really isn't as bad as it's hyped up to be.

Banned for multiaccounting.

I've decided to put off my self-deconstruction until college. Ridding one's self of contradictions isn't that high of a priority at the moment.
in the blink of an eye you finally see the light

what contradictions and underlying meanings?
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

"Pride says, you need not pass that way; Fear says, you dare not look."

Most people who try this never manage well, because they lie to themselves about who they are to themselves endlessly, and never get an accurate view of who they are because the truth isn't pretty.

The best way to accurately do a self survey is to recount your behavior, particularly behavior where you are not at your best, and analyze what was really going on inside of you. Odds are fear is involved in bad behavior, and often ego inflation in other behavior that is less honest.

However, once you start doing this, and you become more comfortable with your individual defects it gets easier and easier, and you can become more and more honest about who you are.

Who am I? The kid who can't read up on ancapism because I'm too busy doing algebra homework, according to Sieben. I am cursed with being able to debate myself without being shackled by self-bias. I am cursed to take all statements about myself as true and put them in the ring. I rip myself apart every day finding contradiction after contradiction. So, I start over.

Believe me, I've gone down these roads before, and this is why I wanted to "start over".

A great thing about self-deconstructionism is that I have completely destroyed my sense of self *insane face*

Now, I am no longer "Rocky the socialist atheist blah blah" I am "Agnostic on everything".

Maybe I should change my account name...Nah.

When one digs into the unknown in search of answers, I would think that things would be clearer to you. But as I go into the unknown I just become more insane.

Dabbling with insanity, as long as you are honest, can lead you to be more sane in the long run.

Just don't start sacrificing babies and stuff. You can extract more mana out of them once they have hit toddler age.

Sanity is an illusion. It manifests out of taking a conclusion instead of thinking further.

As Freedo says: "A conclusion is something that happens when you stop thinking"

Are you using "Deconstructionism" in a post-modernist sense or is this your personal definition/some other philosophical group?

Deconstructionism usually applies to texts, but in this version it applies to one's personal philosophy (the text of the soul?)
