Sense

We sense stuff. We see, smell, hear, taste, and touch. Of course we are capable of more than sensing. We sense, we process, we output. Just like how a robot works. What makes a human special is the processing step. But we are gradually losing that ability. Stimuli are bypassing our brain. Stimuli become the output. The processing unit doesn’t work anymore, it short circuits the input to the output.

Reason

Determinism, causation, free will, big bang, quantum, uncertainty principle, whatever. If human beings were created by a superior being, let it be god or an alien, yet we are so ugly, contradictory, stupid and narcissistic, I can think of some reasons. The superior being, let’s call it it, was already doing its best. -> It was stupid. It deliberately made us so. -> We are an experiment to it, the earth is (maybe) the largest zoo in the universe.

Excretion

Life is excretion. A good shit experience feels nice, maybe that explains why we are always excreting. We eat food and produce excrement. We inhale fresh air and produce foul air. We take a shower and produce tons of polluted water. We fight and produce corpses. We consume Coca-Cola and produce commercials of nonsense. We put flowers in a vase and produce dead flowers. We buy new phones and produce dead phones in the drawer.

Language

We are nothing but language. But I am sick of our languages. The language we use is rudimentary. Use math as an analogy, our language only knows additions and subtractions, and while doing this basic operation it includes a lot of redundant steps with unneeded zeros. It’s slow, ambiguous, obscure, twisted, vague and toxic. I wish there is a just language, a powerful language, a simple language, a perfect language, a language that conveys messages without distortion, a language that allows people to express their feelings without hesitation, a language that connects people.
