If the Universe is in any way intelligent, do you think it cares what tiny organisms on a infinitesimal speck of rock in a nondescript corner of the itself think, or feel, or busy themselves with, or do to each other? Do you think the Universe cares about the sexuality of these ridiculous, little things? Do you think it cares about our liberalism or conservatism? Our guns? Our deaths? Do you think we are the center of this Universe? Do you think we are at all a significant point in its space and its time? Do you think the Universe bothers itself with you at all? How bizarre.
Each of us is so remarkably small. Each of us is so remarkably unspecial. Each of us is so remarkably insignificant. But even the lightest of our egos can’t handle this. We found it unacceptable. We must NOT be small. We MUST be special. We MUST be significant. So we create big myths into which we can insinuate ourselves, and as part of a greater whole become great ourselves. We created the spirit and spirituality, and even as the true nature of the Universe is revealed, we lash out against it. We create lies against it. We need the myths to feel important and meaningful, and the truth only serves to strip us of that.
Our first great revolution was humanity’s revolt against Nature. Against it’s primitive brutality. So we created civilizations. And cultures. And legions of definitions and labels and socially fixed ideas. All of which are utterly and disgustingly arbitrary. We created religions. We created politics. We created moralities. We created an entire social plane of existence on top of Nature, going beyond merely escaping its brutality, but orchestrating boundaries for for every possible thing.
Our second great revolution will rip this shit away, clearing a space for a new humanity. Humanity’s revolt against every thought and every thing that limits us unnaturally. All unnecessary definitions and labels and rules. Perhaps this will require a return to Nature, as primal as it is, to start fresh building a plane atop of Nature that is purely pragmatic rather than recklessly and restrictively romantic. A culture that empowers us, rather than weighing us down with senseless rules and limitations and whimsical mythologies, and shows each of us our boundless human potential.
