The weakness of human beings is sometimes too much for me to stand. Some days I simply do not believe I can make it another day amongst the masses. On days like those I imagine being shot off towards the great unknowns of space – leaving humanity behind forever. But I don’t have a rocket and I don’t know any Astronauts, so instead I write things like this:
I am constantly amazed by human beings. They are, at the same time, the most intelligent and stupid creatures on this planet. Not even 1% of them possesses an ounce of foresight. Their ability to reason, their logic, easily slain by their emotions. We will never evolve, this is as good as it will ever get. We may have detribalized centuries ago but all that did was turn us into bigger groups of the same hateful, fearful, vengeful, self-serving, short-sighted, ignorant cunts we were in the first place. The only difference now is we have more people who agree with us; more people to help justify our ridiculous actions, assumptions, and ideologies. Only ever after we’ve made our rash decisions do we look back and see how harmful they were – and we never learn. Regardless of how many examples we have to show us that hindsight is 20/20 and foresight is zero, we continue to act just the same. We are an illogical, irrational, overly emotional species that does much more harm than good. When will our minds evolve out of the Bronze Age? When will the psychological revolution finally come? Will it ever come, or is this the best we’ll ever be? An infighting species that eventually kills itself off.
So what can you expect from this blog?
You can expect observations. Observations like the one above, though hopefully not as negative. I spend every hour of every day observing and/or analyzing the actions of the people who share the surface of this whirling rock of space dust with me. I need to get those observations out of my head and onto, a sort of, paper. So, here I blog.
I don’t care if you agree or disagree – I don’t even care if you read; I don’t allow comments what’s written here. This is a journal, or diary, in every sense of the term. I am writing for relief and not your entertainment or reaction. In a world populated by a species with an increasing need to be validated by its cohorts, we have forgotten how to reflect for the purposes of self-growth. We are, all of us, stupid and detached. Ignorant of what existence truly is.
I am a philosopher. I am a student and a thinker. I am an admirer of everything that is understood, a dreamer of everything that is not, and a champion of bridging the gap between those things. My name is Tanner Campbell and I’m very glad to make your acquaintance.
