    9 Possible Signs of Mis (or Dis) Information

    What is misinformation?

    Misinformation is information that’s been distorted in the communication process. Think of a child’s game of “Telephone.” If the first child in a chain whispers the message “Green golf shirt” to their neighbor, but the last child is told “Gandalf is hurt,” then misinformation has occurred.

    Sometimes misinfo happens because of literal mishearing and sometimes it happens because the message becomes overlaid with outside information like personal beliefs, but the principle is the same. Usually, misinfo doesn’t have a negative intent behind it.

    What is disinformation?

    Disinformation is either intentional distortion or telling lies. The intent behind disinfo is negative. By negative I don’t mean demonically evil; I mean that the intent is to limit access to accurate information.

    **

    Both misinfo and disinfo are present in the spiritual community. The truth is out there, too—as well as within—but whether you’re searching for it online or in your inner being, you will likely meet with lies at some point. Lies can be uncovered by common sense and intuition, like by noticing fakeness in a presenter’s voice or body language. Sometimes, however, detecting bad information takes a process of reasoning.

    So this short article will focus upon recognizing signs of misinfo, or disinfo, that you’re likely to encounter. It will hopefully help you build your discernment. Take what works for you and leave the rest.

    The signs were chosen, in part, according to these assumptions:

    (1) logic is a helpful tool for evaluating spiritual information;

    (2) information from a high spiritual level is free from: (a) condemnation, (b) favoritism;

    (3) genuine messengers of spiritual information are clear and concise, although the ideas they present may be complex or metaphoric;

    (4) genuine messengers advocate going within, testing the information, deconstructing it, and re-synthesizing it. Spiritual information isn’t copyrighted, and its genuine messengers aren’t profit-motivated.

    Good point Micer!!!

    As Prabhupada said any theory is nothing if it is not applicable. Then it is pure speculation.
    So we need to concentrate on applicable, tested and practical benefits for humanity. Theory is nothing, empty powerless words.

    There are so many words, empty words, no power at all, no meaning at all, meaningless or 'so called' stuff, like so called scientist, so called teachers, so called wifes or so called husbands or so called milk :).
    I love the power of each word in Vedas hymns, undeniable power is there and each word and meaning expands to wow... Vedas are self evident and this is the key why Vedas are most attractive to many and to me personally.


    "The self-evident Vedic literatures are the highest evidence of all, but if these literatures are interpreted, their self-evident nature is lost."

    What happens with humans instead of returning benefits to humanity as soon as they are successful in some spiritual realization, they instead of going further, they turn back in the loop into material world, to self, to money, to self gratification or sense gratification to be clear. This is most common loop. they missed the point
    the point of high, highest realization and help to humanity, help to each soul.

    I remember Floyd had a general discussion about do we have to pay a guru and he said that most precious things in life are free. I think the discussion forgotten :)...

    remember Buddha cut off all theories as people were going crazy, talking and doing nonsense. He used one of three - impersonal aspect of Krishna to shut the mind off.

    Personalities were lost, relationship-love lost, but oh well. It means Personal relationship with god was not encouraged. ....... Crying or Very sad

    also authority and result would confirm the evidence, especially for the seekers of truth.

    actually correct placement of faith (on the buddhi platform) should should get us to some realization.

    (buddhi yoga).

    we are fed with endlessly changing theories and assumptions and so called science and have a faith in them.... drunken
