To get started quickly, I’m sorry. I did not mean to be that sensitive yesterday. It was late. For everyone that have watched HIMYM, you know the classic saying “Nothing good ever happens after 2 A.M.” Not that this happened after 2 A.M. but I think my inner watch need some reparations after summer vacation. What I am trying to say is, I’m not a psychiatrist of any kind. I don’t know how society or people or minds work. Sure I observe much of it, but that doesn’t put me in the rights to make conclusions about it. Did I get carried away? Not the first time in that case. I read a book about different personalities a while ago, so I guess that’s the source of it. It was quite interesting reading, but I won’t do it again, I promise.
Now, let’s put on our spacesuits and pack bags with unnecessary things we won’t use, cause it’s time for some time travelling.
Why? I don’t really know. I’m staying home from school today cause my stomach hurt, so I thought of something fun to do to make time keep going. Guess it’s sort of an irony, but hey, isn’t today’s humour like 80% sarcasm anyway? Let’s laugh at things while the travelling begins. Where are we going, you might wonder? I think sometime around when humans started existing. Is it a billion years back or so? (It’s really a miracle I passed history last year.)
Okay, now I’m done playing hostess for a kids show. We’re there. And I mean, look at this. This is exactly my thought. These people weren’t skilled at all. They were uncivilised and they didn’t have any weapons. They weren’t communicating at all. They didn’t have anything beyond their physical strength.
And look how good they were doing. Sure a lot of them died. And they didn’t have comfortable beds or ice cream to make it. But this was the way they lived for the absolute majority of human existence. Simple. Like animals. Is that so weird, really? We are animals. At that point, we belonged in the woods and in the system with them. We weren’t playing gods. We weren’t destroying the planet. We didn’t torture anyone. We didn’t search information. We didn’t look for reasons for everything. And then, (yeah, now I’m mixing different sort of cultures) Eve took a bite of an apple. The apple were holding in wisdom, God had said. She weren’t supposed to eat it, he explained very clearly. But yet she did.
And she noticed, “Holy mother of god, we’re naked!” Like that wasn’t the state of every single animal in that Eden. I mean, the other animals still don’t reflect over the fact that they don’t have any clothes. Because they didn’t eat an apple that was either wisdom, or poisonous. Maybe it didn’t make Eve become a smart human who suddenly understood things, who wanted explanations on why the sea is blue instead of just drinking out of it, why the sun was shining instead of just get that it was and appreciate it. Maybe it made Eve mad. Because then when they had both eaten the apple, God threw them out of the Eden and they fell down on the ground on Earth. And they started to use weapons. They talked to each other. They evolved in technology faster and faster, from an arrow to a gun, from talking to phoning, from walking to driving a car. They discovered why the sun was shining and why the sea was blue. They understood all the wonders of the nature. They started proceeding chemistry, and maths, and society. They made medicine and airplanes and they chopped down the forests and started to use animals as their crafts.
We are all crazy down here.
The phrase is from Alice in Wonderland, and just the title speaks for itself.
Bye for today.
