Reply To: Subjective truth
Really good question. Thanks for joining in. I would be interested to hear from Paul.
Here is my understanding and experience at the moment. The examples 'spiders are harmful' and 'spiders are dangerous' seem to both be causal beliefs. These are both synonyms for unsafe. If someone concludes 'I am afraid' becomes a descriptive belief that has been triggered by the causal belief.
To me, it seems what Paul has been suggesting is that reactions, responses and personal emotional experiences are often a good indicator for something forming a descriptive belief. If one then asks themselves why do I or did I feel this way? This can lead to the causal belief which if cleared in turn clears the descriptive belief.
Thanks again for asking this question. I am looking forward to Paul's response.
