ok look people

let me put it to you this way

have you ever noticed how easy it is to keep doing the same thing without even realizing all the other options you have? you could just keep working the same job until you get fired or promoted then find another niche and do the same thing…and before you know it your life is over and done with

whats the point of that kind of pbumionless existence?

And for those forced into such a life?

Should they then simply kill themselves because of the verall uselessness of their existance?

But 90% or better of all the people I have ever met, aren’t even equipped with the ability to do that, much less the self awareness that is required, for them to even see the need.

IOW most people will never live that kind of life, and aren’t even aware that they aren’t, and if it was pointed out to them, they wouldn’t get it.

Face it, the vast majority of people are satisfied with being monkeys.

Perhaps, but since they are oblivious, and would remain so even if you told them, does that make them less human?

Look, I’m not really into Amway. My cousin sold it for a while, and it’s really a pyramid scheme, no matter what they tell you.

I will answer my own question, just so you know where I am coming from.

IMO the answer is yes, they are lesser humans, and should be told what ****bags they are until they cry.

This just affirms me as the superior human being, while giving me lulz at their expense.

not less human i think

maybe less beautiful in a way

while we can judge a persons actions by moral standards

the way they live their life is ultimately a question of aesthetics

so there are no final judgments

im trying hard not to be elitist here

given the phrasing of your questions it is difficult

but wait…the basis for this is just play

a skill most people learn in childhood

so…while the sophistication of how you live your life may differ

you are still a human being with the potential to live your life with flair and enthusiasm

I will respectfully disagree and say that some people simly are not equipped with the ability to live their lives as anything other than mere smart monkeys.

Those people should be told what useless twats they are at all opportunities, just for the lulz and to reafim my own superiority.

did you ever notice how much of the time we dont even know where we are? we just identify being in certain places with doing certain tasks and so dont have to think about anything else

that can be unfortunate especially when it causes us to treat other people as objects

but it also creates a huge opportunity

if you can distract someone from their automatic task

when you stop for a moment they will be confused

causing them to realize where they are and remember they are human beings

So forcing them to “live in the now” for at least a brief moment?

I suppose that is fine, except that two seconds after you leave them, they go back to being mindless monkeys again. So in the end, did you really do anything at all?

A moment of real connection with a person can make an entire day of mindless drudgery both memorable and meaningful.

Maybe, for the person, who fits that 10% of people who are actually real people, capable of living lives beyond that of the mere monkey.

But for the 90% of others, you just wasted your time.

it could be forgotten

but it might be remembered

so its better to try than not

and if a single moment can bring meaning to an entire day

why not a week? a year? a decade? a life?

Funnier to just make a mental note of what a stupid monkey they are, and ridicule them at every opportunity.

But sure, if you WANTED to be a nice guy, I guess that would work.

Who wants to be a nice guy though???

True, I don’t because in the end I think it is a waste of time trying to wake people up, who are incapable of being awakened.
