That my perceptions can be WILDLY incorrect. I knew that sort of generally, but I'd gotten used to being very perceptive and getting lots of "yeah that's what's going on" feedback, and then I talked with several people I was close to years ago and realized that back then I had never asked if my perceptions were true, and it turns out I went long periods of time on absolutely wrong perceptions. I think I mostly have the habit of asking if I am correct in what I think is going on now, but Topaz helped me see that a clue to being wrong is when I interpret something the same way every time. That was pretty shocking and cool to realize, because if I think "this behavior always means this thing" then I never think to double-check with the person to see if that is what their behavior actually means. So I found a new red flag for bad communication.
Also, learning that I am unskilled at unprompted openness in real-time. That was new knowledge and gave me a whole new thing to practice. I have a goal of sharing some unprompted meaningful thought (with a person who is not my lover) in real time every day.
Alfred gave me these prompts: describe a dystopian vision of the future & You are God Empress of Earth. What do you do?
