All the internet forums are filled with members who don't have any idea who I AM. They will argue until they're dead and that will be it for them.

It's a really bad habit to get into, assuming that anyone who thinks differently from you is crazy, or nuts, or whatever. Because those labels are just the result of you excising yourselves from having to try and understand their point of view, and of perhaps discovering that it's you who is not seeing reality clearly.

Protecting yourself from acknowledging error by ignoring any possibility of discovering it is a guaranteed methodology for keeping you "stuck in stupid" mode. And the only way put is to do just the opposite: you need to seek our your own error, instead of denying it in every disagreement by labeling the other person "crazy".

You should be grateful when you run into someone who sees things very differently from you, because they offer you a vision of the world that you don't currently have. But to understand this, you have to recognize that your view of the world is very limited, and very biased by your ego, as all human vision is. And that you NEED the views of others to broaden that narrow biased view of yours. As we all do.
