I say this is how many need to be, with only one extra thing, STAY GROUNDED and be EPIC that way you won't float away.
We will break free from these bonds of regulated behavior, and that's when human species really shines, when we shed out sterotypical shells and be truly ourselves.
Rock ruff and stuff with your badass self

Wanna be epic? Fine. The important thing is that you do what you want to do.
Not everyone wants to be epic...

You are thinking only of the good side of being epic. North Korea's fat little leader played at being epic, and he threatened nuclear annihilation of the world. Better to be humble and civil and informed while crushing all things epic.
threatening to nuke ppl is an act of violence. i would never condone such a thing. each has a right to live their lives peacefully. and endeavor for greater personal development. not think themselves worthless or undeserving. i dont much enjoy speaking on topics of war. all should know it is not a nice thing. for any side. but if we become smarter, more intuitive, more connected to our source. we become intelligent to the point of realizing the pointlessness of war. and of squabbles and argument. and of disagreements. each paints his own picture. and finds those they call friends who share some of the same qualities of their own picture. but hardly ever the exact same picture. to be a star, u need only think well of yourself. be proud, and free to be yourself. to be the fastest runner you need only pursue seemingly superhuman goals for your training. reach for the moon, and if you miss you can fall on a cloud. This is how the great ones throughout history have done it!

but if everyone is theoretically or potentially epic then does that make mediocrity in itself epically normal?
also, is it possible for one to be epic and humble, or does epicness require the use of a large, cumbersome ego?

Mediocrity has its importance as the soil from which greatness arises. If everyone was epic, everyone being epic would become a mediocre notion.
