To adapt and thrive in today’s world, one has to resist the urge to be human as much as possible. Not letting nature take its course doesn’t help either.
Getting an education
After 12 years of elementary and high school, we’re urged to further our education for at least another 4 years without any promise of a grand reward. I think it should be considered a form of torture.
Living for 80 years
Life is short? 80 years sounds pretty long and painful. I don’t think we were ever meant to be alive to the point where we look like a hunched over prune who cannot see, hear or walk.
Working full time
You can’t just be alive for 80 years you have to work 40 hours a week for all the years you’re not in school or shitting your pants as a baby or as a senior.
It’s like a sleep deprivation tactic comparable to blasting death metal to torture prisoners during interrogation. Humans were meant to wake up when the hell they want to wake up or at least by the sound of birds and not meep meep meep meep. The same thought goes on in everyone’s head when the alarm goes off in the morning. “How can I escape this? I can’t. Life sucks.”
It’s so hard to die
Nothing is trying to eat us. If we hurt ourselves we have hospitals. If we’re close to dying they give us pills to keep us alive. Can’t breath? Don’t worry, we’ll just hook you up to this machine for the rest of your life that will pump and suck the life out of you.
Thinking is not the new black
Life is so crazy that the best solution that we’ve found is to stop thinking. They call it meditating and it’s all the rage. We idolize guys that shave their heads and live with a bunch of other dudes who don’t believe in meat, sex, alcohol and pretty much everything else that has kept us alive for all these years.
I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to fully adapt to this thing we call life. I don’t think I’m tough enough.
