Here’s just a list of things that I (and probably you) find so extremely miraculous that I stop believing that reality is real. *dozes off*
Bark of trees, undergone immense processing with chemicals of all sorts, tied up uniformly and decorated with a cover on top. A minimalistic thing as a book has the potential to warp itself to the grimmest concealed parts your intellectual complex network, the brain. The idea of a book is such a miraculous one. Such a subtle “thing” and it is not a “thing”. How does ink have so much of potential? It leads to revolution.
An unfulfilled desire, an unexpected loss, common nostalgia, an effort gone waste: and all that happens is squeezing out salty water from your window to the world. Tears. They’re so weird. They’re just water but the cause is so strong.
A sound produced at fixed intervals. That’s it. That is what music is. Ans yet that is not “just” what music is. It can dry up tears, rekindle motivation and make a happy person weep. Change in frequencies, that’s all.
We actually pretend to be sleeping so that we can sleep. It’s so funny. We sleep one third of the day and we don’t even remember it. everything happens in the the same head we use rest of the yet. Honestly, I am laughing right now.
5. Rules of life
To put it more clearly -“civilisation”. I wake up 5:30 to the song “Stayin’ Alive” everyday ( yes that’s my alarm tone), essentially do the same thing till 3, eat, essentially do the same thing till 9, eat, essentially do the same thing till 11, and then don’t remember anything I did from 11 to 5:30. And it seems so normal to me. But wow, it’s not normal.
Go get back to work now.
