Amphetamines make crazy and not care, and yet thoroughly invested in everything that's happening. Overly invested. Its always time to get shit done, amped and dancing, jamming things together, seeing what fits, but always so mean. Just a hair from anger. Everything is sharp. Razors rest on every surface including my own. Floating inside, outside, and on the surface; stimuli filters through them, spurs to make me go on. They make hate who I am and what I do, or rather what I've done. Intense violent force flows through, pulped liquid gush from which I can't help but collapse upon reflection. Angry and disinterested in anything that interrupts the blades I have become. At high speeds a slight drift toward death without caution. A bloody line scrawled and jittering askew of a goal. Barely eat for days. Barely sleep for weeks. Needing a kill and can barely stay on my feet. A few years of this in cocktail and we ran to a hole of isolation and numbness which we've maybe just now started escaping from.
Opiates are great. Nothing gets in. Nothing gets out. More than content to lay about. Nothing hurts and barely breathing, couldn't care if the whole world were seething. Weeks go by and I don't miss them. Never even heard of time. And then I'm awake again. Maybe better with a mix? you'll feel the blades a little less.
Tried DXM, but that one couldn't catch me. A cat on my chest for a minute was there for some hours. Everything I did I did again while doing something else. Everyt
It has always been like this, modern society has just accelerated and made it more apparent.
What exactly do you mean? Isn't the fact the process has accelerated and become more apparent a capitulation to the idea that it hasn't always been like this? With in the realm of work surely both the craftsman smithing tools for the farmers whom respectively plowed their fields in the middle ages were unconcerned with the possibility that their skills would be unmarketable in the near future. I doubt they even had our modern conception of markets at all. Infact the effect that the introduction of canals had on interpersonal relations of farmers in the northeast united states is well documented. Their introduction drastically changed the way people dealt with each other as production became oriented around access to canals as a way to bring produce to markets in the cities, where it had previously been enough to exchange with the locals. Before canals you could pluck an apple off your neighbor's tree with little consequence. After their introduction that act was treated as theft. But never in this shift are the relevance of the farmers skills in question.
Though perhaps you're concern is the plight of the craftsman. Most of whom over generations were pushed into a kind of low skill work in factories and labourers on said canals with market relations with the self as commodity, which strikes me as something entirely new.
Of course there were and are still skilled professions, but they seem to have shifted towards
Sorry anon, I don't really remember what I meant back then, probably.
I think I was thinking about it in terms of evolution... rather than in terms of people.
Every generation of life is made to survive the world that it's predecessors lived in, even though the world their parents lived in and the one they live in might seem the same, but it can only be different. The natural mutations of evolution just hide that change, through the normalization of death.
When the environment outpaces evolution's correctional errors, that's what we usually call a mass extinction. For humanity, this threshold has not yet been touched, because humanity doesn't just rely on genetic evolution, but also cultural evolution (which can also be passed down). Sure, people will suffer because they've never been in such a situation before, but it was also the same when people discovered agricultural, or writing. The human consciousness is made to be malleable, though it might have evolved to best suit the culture of the previous era by precoding some habits, a sudden change of culture has happened before. What will ensue is most likely what has happened before, the extinction of the previous generation and the emergence of a kind of people who can deal with this kind of rapid change. If nothing substantial changes to society in the next few centuries (we'll see). Genetics will most likely catch up in the form of a more fluid brain,
That makes a lot more sense. Mass extinction sounds pretty unpleasant even though you're talking mid to long term here. I suppose there are things we can do to help develop/maintain curiosity and more fluid brains even in the current generation. Here's hoping we have what it takes to pass through the filters.
I am sure all shall be well anon!
and why do I long for it?
careful what you wish for
Shouldn't that be 0th? 0st? Nilst?
