Perhaps. It's an anger I felt, which, I acknowledge, is better received when shared with friends than on a forum board.
I regret that that effect was created, but I do hope you recognize it is an anger not at prince the person
but on the sorts of ideas that
compel people to do things that are bad long-term for their health, or for that matter, anytime we act in ways that don't pay attention to the
system-like-properties of what were talking about.
It's just so radical. One decision, perhaps made sometime during the beginning of an illness. What compelled him to keep giving performances? When
people are sick, the typical inclination is to want to sit down and sleep. Find a place to rest and shut your eyes. In fact, this is a genetically
in the psychological functioning of any organism, but we humans are unique. We can exist in opposition
to what is actually good
for our health. Whereas reflexive thought and feeling generally does what the body dictates (sit and rest) an inspired man like Prince, who's
cultivated a deep love for his music as well as a deep care for his fans, had a belief (which he stated in past interviews) that the power of music
was transcendental. He believed it, it seems - and quite arguably given his relationship with many intellectuals - this idea quite literally.
But its a myth!!! We are actually and in fact biomolecular systems
that needs food and water to survive, healthy and stable relations to feel
secure and have meaning, sleep to feel restored and rest when our body is being attacked by invisible parasitic organisms: music will not change the
fact that a virus is currently propagating itself in your organism. On the contrary, your brain is an organ that sucks 25% of your body's metabolic
energy: energy that NEEDS TO BE DEDICATED TO YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEMS (glandular) ATTACK on the virus.
Aye! The result is radically final. Prince, out of a habit, perhaps, took his beliefs way beyond what a typical 57 year old human body can handle. He
died for a reason understandable to any scientist, doctor, or laymen interested in science.
It's because I appreciated him so much that I'm angry.
