When I realised that Made in Chelsea, and The Only Way Is Essex, had become popular, I also realised that this is the time when it all starts to go to
hell. The media, wether by accident and coincidence, or by some toxic agenda, have contributed to the decline of the self in recent years, in a way
which has absorbed a huge percentage of the population. Previously well adjusted people, are all of a sudden walking out of tanning salons in the
middle of bloody december, and complaining that they are cold despite being incorrectly dressed, and making nonsensical pronouncements (fellow on the
bus the other day, I kid you not, actually used the word Reem in a sentence... case rested).
Idiocy is the new sexy, the new black, the essential accessory for every event. Its fashionable for the wind to make pan pipe noises when passing
across a persons ears, due to the lack of grey matter between them. In a similar fashion, in some circles it is cool to be someone you are not.
Thankfully, I find myself beyond such considerations, because if I was really concerned about my outward image, I would bathe in hydrofloric acid and
reduce myself to goop to improve matters in that regard. However, as it happens, I am not. One may either take what is there, or walk away. Expecting
me to change to suit the times however, is somewhat akin to waiting for a mountain to shrink so that one might stand atop its peak.
The reason I am so against all this fakery and foolishness, is that I believe that a person has a right to find out for themselves, who they are
inside, and once they have discovered thier innards, and sifted through thier guts looking for answers, maybe, just maybe then they will be correctly
prepared to go and find out who everyone else is. If they decide however to ignore the self and go and find someone elses personality to examine, they
will eventually absorb it into thier own paradigm, because once this effort is expended, it is easier to remain in someone elses head, than learn the
architecture of ones own. It is important to know people well. It makes for firmer friendships, better trust between people, less arguments and
misunderstandings. However, more important than knowing anyone else, is knowing yourself. It is with this root that all discovery begins, and until
one knows ones self, one cannot learn anything of any import, nor apply that learning effectively.
