What To Do

What to do in a world that eventually proves you to be wrong?
History is the story of science unfolding with relics of art and data of information beholding the idea of what used to be.  There are many ways to study humanity and life itself, each with a scientific catalog to store the body of vocabulary terms to name each observation made by a demigod on the timeline of mankind. Upon each layer we peel away, we find a more convincing theory to prey our beliefs on. Tears fill our eyes in the wake of cognitive dissonance as if it was an onion we were peeling back. The truth is, it’s a mask you eventually unveil.

We all quake when faced with the true essence of life, death. Historically, death was a commonplace. People were faced with difficulties beyond finding toilet paper.  Most simply didn’t make it to adulthood.  Centuries would pass as lifestyles and ways of life would remain constant. What we knew was simplicity. We knew survival.  We were fit. Now, we are tredding in a bowl of jello with self destruction being our main course for Life.

Since the industrial age, we have built a relationship with technology that has made us completely dependent on a broken system.  From our homes that are unsustainable to our inefficient communities to our useless jobs that typically do little to nothing to progress and protect our species. We as a species arguably work harder, at the very least longer, than ever before as we spend less and less time doing what we enjoy with who we love and care for.  Time keeps on slipping into the future of the dark matter that really ends up not mattering at all.

We are slaves to an idea few understand. We are engaged to thoughts that few respect.  We are in love with actions that erode our brain matter.  We are killing ourselves softly with the cameras rolling in the live feed. We are neither living as monsters, nor dying as heros.  We are effortlessly turning grey in a world that is losing its saturation and contrast with the lines blurring in and out of consciousness until we become enlightened enough to not be fake woke. We are humans of the 21st century and we are sorry for being so wrong about everything. 

What to do in a world that eventually proves you to be wrong? My solution is transforming an interest into an artform.  Do whatever you find interesting and become better at it each day.  For starters, practice the art of focus.  It seems that focusing is a muscle that we have lost touch with. Once you have developed the skill of focus, diversify your time with things that make you happy, things that make you feel confident, things that are complicated, and things that are pleasing.  Don’t let the comfort of gravity pull you to submission of breathing rigor mortis. Focus on building your internal structures of health and neurological development in order to break the bonds that keep you happily ignorant of the poisons we dose up on daily. Observe your set point for self satisfaction sky rocket as you build a better world starting with yourself. When we reach a point of creating societies whereby everyone attempts to follow these basic principles, we will become proud to have the DNA sequences we were born with.
