Why the World Seems Like It’s Out to Get You

Posted: July 19th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Especially Good, Serious, Short | 4 Comments »

Want to know why the world seems like it’s out to get you?

It’s like walking on a sidewalk of an average city block.

If half the people are going your direction and half the people are walking against you, you’re much more likely to encounter the people who are going against you. The others you may never notice.

    So, if you’re saying what I think you’re saying—and clearly there is no reason to believe that you’re saying anything other than what I think you’re saying—then you’re saying this: Let’s reverse the rotation of the earth. And I totally agree. That way it can never get us, since that direction of the earth represents the half of the people who are going against us. Now we will all be among the other half, who always leave us alone. Just you try to get me after I do that, stupid world!

    Clearly you are on the right track. However, the same effect can be achieved by simply turning around. Then, and only then, will you realize the true power of togetherness.

    I like it. It reminds me of the Matrix training scene: We don’t notice anyone these days, regardless of their direction, except for those wearing red.
    I hate it sometimes when I see “We” and make judgement, but I will let my comment lay as is. Cheers.

    Cheers, Ara! Thanks so much for stopping by! And mentioning the Matrix. It’s exactly like that.
