In change we find our relevance
In the past I thought that people never change. They stay the jerks they once became. I changed my mind about that. People get even more dumb.
To generalise is to be an idiot. That’s what William Blake said. Within that phrase, the whole idea of knowledge and wisdom is wrapped. It may seem harsh, but it fits so well to our communities nowadays. Obviously, I am no exception. Superficiality we might call it. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to know the story of the life of my next waitress. Nonetheless, I also don’t want to know about the current weather, time nor any other smalltalk crap.
People learn through generalisation. They learn languages by building rules of syntax and semantics. Complex programs are constructed by abstraction. Big companies own a management to manage their management. Despite that, true knowledge is when we know what’s going on inside the box. And this is where we get ignorant, lazy and scared. It’s where the problem starts. You take something as granted. You don’t want to stress yourself with little children knitting your clothes. You don’t mind to dismiss 101 employees to keep your job.
On the other hand, we despise too much sugar in our coffee mugs. We yell about too much light green on our prints. Yeah, what the fun! We lost our priorities in wrong perspectives long ago. But who am I, daring to write text nobody reads.
Now I’m going to eat the fourth and evil doughnut!
