Revolution will not come with a giant wave of anarchic resistance toppling the established order in Shakespearean glory.
Revolution will come when you, the reader, listens to the voice in your head that is telling you to be different than the other 7 billion people blindly goosestepping around on good old, tired Mother Earth. There is no virtue in perfect unity. Nature, meaning life, allows for mutation for this very reason. Nature knows that the best way to fight the epic force of entropy is through difference, distinction, uniqueness, mutation. Nature is a motherfucking badass. The entire universe conspires to destroy nature, and 3.6 billion years nature has been giving a big middle fucking finger to entropy as it builds bigger and grander spectacles of achievement.
When you decide to conform, you are giving away that epic gift. You are saying that nature and its variability are outmoded and tired and no longer of any use. That’s fine. That’s your right. Just remember that you have ten times more non-human cells in your meat-bag that you carry around than human cells. And those non-human microbes could give a shit about conformity. They are ready to evolve and mutate at any moment. They trust the 3.6 billion year project to survive. That’s the team they’re betting on.
I live as a natural being in our society. I don’t wash my hands that often. Everything is basically already sterilized to hell because of modern sanitation and disposability anyway. I don’t always bathe on a perfect schedule. Don’t care. I look good and smell good when it matters. I shovel tons of probiotics in yogurt and supplements into my digestive tract to support the troops. I sleep when I feel like it. I also allow my brain to, you know, think. Kind of what it’s designed for? The brain doesn’t consume 20% of your calories to just absorb directives from the instruction screen. It needs to be able to think freely. I don’t watch TV on purpose because it’s bad for my health. I love movies and on-demand, but commercials are toxic and the “entertainment” on TV is unhealthy.
It’s really not that hard to just be human once you scrape away all of the social engineering, but that’s the hard part. You can’t just get rid of the messaging in your brain without changing your environment. I had to leave my environment (I was basically banished, so it was not really a choice) to let me be me. Right now there are hundreds of forces with hooks in you expecting you to react a certain way or reflexively do a certain action. I have them too. I’m not perfect. But I’m on a mission to get rid of that crap and see what’s underneath the hood.
And I’ve been blown away. Absolutely, laughing my ass off, blown away with what a human is capable of. There is real magic in your bones. It’s fun.
My revolution is in full swing.
