To exist outside of the hive mind of society; that is my goal.
Purposefully, I avoid manufactured headlines and advertisements urging me to partake in the orgy of emotion that is the current system of things, rather than to bathe in the clear, rational pools of critical thought.
But, are these my own thoughts and feelings? Or are they the fruition of seeds somehow sown into the fertile soil of my mind long ago by the purveyors of the emergent zeitgeist of our age? I don't know.
What I do know is: I am an individual, just like everyone else.

    This is brilliantly done, to pack such complex concepts into a 100 word piece that reads so effortlessly is amazing. I'm currently going through a phase of reading Albert Camus (re-reading The Outsider and reading The Fall) so these ideas seem to fit in very well at the moment.

    How disturbing it is to doubt the water drawn from what should confidently be the safest of wells.
