Ranting

There's a huge amount of thoughts flying around my head right now. I wish I had the skill and maturity to slice them up and blog them into efficient little chunks for you all to devour.

But I don't. Get over it.

The big one for me right now is social conditioning. I mean, this to me is just so huge. This is basically the structure of how the machine works isn't it? This is where the power is. How we train and drill the next generation into an autonomous cog that fits into a machine that very few have control of.

But they don't question the machine, because they're in it. They're a cog. I'm a cog, and sorry dear reader, so are you.

It comes down from the top. It comes from TV adverts, magazine adverts, radio adverts, internet fucking pop ups and the like. It comes from Angelina Jolie selling you a perfume, or David Beckham selling you pants. I mean, we are constantly bombarded, told what to buy, told how to be, told what's sexy, told how to feel. We don't make the choices anymore. There is a socially accepted ideal and we all scramble to get there.

The key problems with this ideal being:

A. Not getting there.
B. Getting there.

We fight all our lives for more, more, more, but for the very few that reach the top of the mountain wallow in sight of an empty cliff face. There is no gold at the end of the rainbow.

I'm sorry.

So what is there, I hear you cry. Well, look at it. We have an endless expanse of space with a scatter of matter here and there. All known life is on this same tiny clump of rock called Earth. We're all overgrown naked chimps and think ourselves important, and we each believe our moral ideals are better than the other.

We have a head full of automatic thoughts that we have seemingly very little control over. Some have dark, evil thoughts, and become dark, evil people. Some have happy, positive thoughts and vogue.

We all want more, and secretly, we all want Kim Kardashian. No, really, shut up. You do, I know you do.

We all think we are important. We aren't important. Get over yourself. Nobody knows who you are. You're going to die, and nobody will remember you.

Life is living itself people. Stop breaking it up, taking your little piece and trying to make it better than anyone elses little piece. Life is working for itself. Let it happen. You're fucking up the flow man.
