Have you ever seen In Treatment? At a certain point (right before announcing that he has lost all faith in his profession and is going to quit), Paul Weston says:
"Maybe any serious communication between two people is useless. Even when they're outright lying, people only hear what they really want to hear or what they're capable of hearing, which often holds very little resemblance with what is actually said... [So] I can't tell what is real."
I've found this to be probably the most important and persistent problem within the human condition. Not injustice, not violence, not the failure of any meaningful category but the problem of them computing at all; the problem of communication; the problem of language, as an alleged bridge between one and the others, between one and the world (don't even get me started against perception, empirism and such). It is precisely because communication and language are central to me, that I have taken them as subjects of study (rather than taking them for granted) and so can't disregard neither their inner problems, nor the conclusions about our experience that apparently more accurate models of their structure seem to entail (key word: structuralism... and its limits).
>Would the "true" you become only a winner of mind games and not much else?
If you followed me in the least, you'd see the most we can ever achieve is awareness and control over the games that our mind plays to us, for it's all we'll ever get to know (as humans; therefore, optimistically enough, I'm now a transhumanist).
