I speak. The meme of the day responds…
Tell me, is it a dialogue if that of which I talk to is an echo? I think not. I think we too often defer to the most readily graspable string of associations for the concepts that we cannot easily tie together ourselves. Sadly, it seems that when given the choice between making ourselves and mistaking ourselves — we'd more often rather defer our thoughts than think them.
But can you blame us? Why ravage through an endless array of hypotheticals, or logical inquisitions, when a quick search on google, or bing, can retrieve the answers to any questions or ponderings that may be lost on us. And why learn to speak in your words, when the alternative is more socially acceptable.
I say, to learn to think, because to not do so is to neglect your capacity for intellectual deviance, and to neglect your capacity for intellectual deviance is to exist in limbo — forever bounded by your limbic responses, and completely removed from the adventure of deciding. And learn to speak, because, why not? — when the alternative is so unoriginal.
If what you seek is a definitive path towards creativity, or self actualization, or even a point for which you can begin your quest — here, is not where you will find it.
So what lies below is not a map to originality, but a postmordem on its points of usual divergence.
