Turn off the television.
Cease watching the news.
Close the magazine, put aside the newspaper, and stop visiting all those mainstream websites.
Are you bored yet? Are you getting edgy?
Good--that's the beginning.
Now keep the flat-screen off and hold the news at bay. Throw out the magazines and newspapers and delete all your bookmarks that have anything to do
with popular pundits' opinion on what you should think, feel, say, do, believe.
Unplug from the cultural interface. Unchain yourself from its monolithic constructs.
Cease being homogenized.
Start being human.
I love hanging around little kids--because their thoughts roam free and their imaginations reach far, and they've yet been fully assimilated into the
Borg-like construct we call society. They invent novel games and hold unconventional interests and have quirky conversations that typically have
nothing to do with sports or weather or reality tv.
In short, they remember what it means to be human, to be inventive, to be real.
They have minds that roam free and far and untethered in all directions.
And from them we can learn a lot.
Because that amazing state only becomes possible if you have a brain that isn't filled with all the nonsense that passes for newsworthy information
in this decaying civilization. It only becomes a potentiality once the cognitive powers of your intellect cease obsessing over the vapid nonsense
promulgated as the bread and circuses of this strange society.
Your mind is a computer processor--and only when it's not running at 100% on news and sports and weather and television can it find idle time towards
exploring unconventional lines of thought.
Only when it rests easy can it devote the necessary time and energy towards pondering things profound.
Only when it relaxes can your imagination regrow.
So give your brain a breather.
Detach from the cultural construct. Unchain your mind from the bondage of propaganda.
At first breaking that addiction will seem hard. Like a heroin addict you'll pine for your next fix of "entertainment."
But eventually that obsession will fade. Then you'll remember how to entertain yourself.
You'll start dreaming big dreams and exploring the limits of thought.
You'll start asking yourself the big questions like "who am I?" and "why did I incarnate here?" and "what's the meaning of my life?"
And without constant distractions from television and the internet, you'll actually have time to go seeking answers.
Over long spans spent in that self-imposed deprivation tank, your brain will empty itself of all the nonsense over which you once obsessed.
Then you'll have an opportunity towards finding out what truly matters in life.
You'll remember what it's like to play, to explore, to have fun.
You'll become a kid again--you'll laugh, you'll smile, you'll sing, you'll dance--and you'll finally be free.
All that becomes possible once you turn off the television and stop inundating yourself in this cultural deluge.
All that becomes inevitable once you unchain your mind and let your imagination roam.
