No, little reptile, it means no such thing. All it means I think is that you've reserved your mind for other things. You perceive things differently.
At the same time, if the Judeo-Christian god does exist in the mind of others, it also doesn't make them all of those things which you mentioned above. I think that if our beliefs serve us and others in a 'real' (and that is important) and good way, those beliefs can be looked at as healthy and acceptable. After all, who are we to judge? And of course, that then begs the question - what is real?
~ Carlos Ruiz Zafon
“One of the pitfalls of childhood is that one doesn't have to understand something to feel it. By the time the mind is able to comprehend what has happened, the wounds of the heart are already too deep.”
“But in good time you'll see that sometimes what matters isn't what one gives but what one gives up.”
A room without books ..is like a body without a soul.”
“I couldn't help thinking that if I, by pure chance, had found a whole universe in a single unknown book, buried in that endless necropolis, tens of thousands more would remain unexplored, forgotten forever. I felt myself surrounded by millions of abandoned pages, by worlds and souls without an owner sinking in an ocean of darkness, while the world that throbbed outside the library seemed to be losing its memory, day after day, unknowingly, feeling all the wiser the more it forgot.”
