Create Meaning

It doesn’t take any great leap of the intellect to realize that, aside from technology, the human species has remained unchanged in mindlessness for thousands of years—name your vice or deadly sin.

Given this understanding, it is important to ask yourself the hard questions now. What have you done today to offset the debilitating effects of rote? Have you done anything at all to question mindless ambition, fruitless acquisitions, and even procreation? Does the world really need more people who are steeped in ignorance and superstition?

Don’t let others dictate the significance of your life; snap out of being asleep; if you want depth, you must dig deep—this is also the path to creating meaning in life and original art.
