Decadence

The initial description and act of creation is far more pure/entertaining then what a person comes up with after hours of planning and being influenced by outside factors. Surely the true artists and brilliant thinkers of our time and in history had differences in their ways of creating. For instance you listen to an interview with William Burroughs and the man seems fairly dull if not stupid in the sense that he appears to be on a one track mindset as far as story telling and the facts of life go. I think this level of apathy toward society and your friends and your own self when showered in habitual hardcore drug abuse one either falls into one pole or the other. Meaning you take the boringness that the person must obviously feel because of the great lengths they go to feel alive, and in this they lose touch with standard human emotion. Or you could be one of the psychonaughts which take the experimentation of drug use and what not and may repeat unhealthy process's over and over again but usually this is purely for growth/openness/experience which one can only truely gain through drug use. The problem which people get stuck on with drug use is obviously the level of selfishness/apathy which people usually interpret/see in their friends. But the people whom drug use has changed and altered their lives in the sense that they gained a level of thinking and love with the power of thought that the majority of the time that person later goes on to preach/attempt to create a way of life which a person finds palpable without having to delve into silly extremes. A person who has gained insight and the overall depth which the human brain can process (especially whilst on drugs, this tends to become repetitive again and again but the people who use this things as ways that they have corrected and morphed their conscious for the better) is always recognized. The largest point that I can say (but obviously not prove) that the great scientists whom not only thought outside the box but essentially created a means of living/invention in a way which not only was never constructed before but never even conceived of. Most extremely wealthy people aren't that intelligent. In fact they compensate with agreeing and committing themselves to ideals and the business of doing business because of the fact that they lack this ability to gain a level of individuality. At least a lifestyle, to them would solidify and be the easier route to the American dream. Most extremely genius people whom harbor this almost prophet-like and means of discussing pretty much any idea/action down to a basic science pretty much was born with that ability. Of course this, one would call it talent but really it's just a different level of thinking that one gains over time through personal experience/mistakes but 9 times out of 10 the humanitarian whom lives a life absent of all materials outside of the essentials and those that of course inhibit thinking, have that mentality because of the upbringing. What really fascinates me about this though is that it usually comes of two extremes which would be a household in which love and care is prolific but poverty and the fact that all this hardwork is going to the future, which of course isn't certain. That or the parents treat and see in their child a level of critical thinking which they see as a trampoline of discussing books/movies/morals on a level of almost adult maturity. Then comes into play the friends and other factors that morph and play against what your told ( which is never good, the earlier a child is allowed to make decisions may they result in good/bad consequences) allows this individual to grow out of ideas that have been around, at least aesthetically and pretty much not until later when the youth/kid can embark and participate more in the natural curiousity one has with their own thought process and the means of thinking the people, especially whom they are awe inspired of because of that insane level of depth and critical thinking that plays so quickly and if it's genuine level of theology and a true commitment toward living a lifestyle built on you as a person. Emerson and other philosophies pretty much encaptured the beauty of free thinking and intelligence and good intentions that naturally one has. Corruption and the absence of empathy has been more and more attractive in solidifying respect/money/power. But a man living off in the wild has more power and wields more weight as far as understanding the flow and what we all hope and interpret randomness as the karma and inevitable justice the true and actual human beings have in our society, This has always been respected but recently the ability to build connections and the people whom you know and the way that they view you, is what matters. The idea that the scientists have the ability to take a problem proven mathmatically which of course is based on experience, but the individual who can concoct a level of thinking which isn't based on IQ at all but instead by the simple art of interpreting/knowing your place/and colliding the views of people far above your thought process and far below. Simple social critiques are seemingly made by these brilliant theoriests but at these people are doing, as Gladwell essentially is to some degree, is taking the science/math/ideas/human nature and applying it to pretty much the mass majority. If you can take the information gained from an array of studies and interpret and boil them down to what necessarily isn't always the truth but if a neutral and average person was placed in all these right situations, he could appear and seemingly be a genius of the human character. Most truely interesting to me and also a lot more easier to agree with as well as support and share the information from that source, is the people who maintain the commitment of speech and expression of ideas to the people that they meet to the things that they interpret as flaws in their thinking. I think just as much can be learned about the mentality and way of doing seemingly linear tasks to someone who because of the lack of not being able to concentrate on the future outcome of such action, that they no longer truelly trust themselves but in this aspect are they more intelligent and dilligent in gaining as much as they can about life and people as a whole? Most businessmen/entrapaneurs (to a degree obviously)/writers/athletes and whatnot who have seen and to them have gained the fruit of their labor which to people whom use wealth as a means of happiness obviously is gained from the money they have gained strictly by themselves. Most people whom have been for years putting out if not similiar ideas/goods where they have forgotten the level of accomplishment that never grows old in the creation of an abstract idea which was denounced and called ludicrous by someone whom may be ignorant in that aspect but strictly by their, which I never understood in human beings as a whole, the assumptions and level of conniving most people have on a level which is ingrained in their subconscious. I think one of the most prominent and good examples of this idea is that the majority of the time the person who up until a point where they realized that publically this was frowned upon but strictly because of the social stigma that people would attribute with the bullying and attempted abuse of people who are seen as threats/weird/unknown. These people as they grow older tend to, again of course not always, change their forms of abuse to things alot less apparent. The level of narcissism or simple brutality all stemming from self hate or sheer anger at the world tends to never really go away. What occurs usually is that these people find means of doing heinous acts, if not even more violent and permanent acts of hate throughs means of legality. Just because something is a law does not mean it is the morally correct thing to do and vice versa. These people whom for essentially the majority of their lives have found that the most pleasure and real thrill of getting away with a pretty obvious crime of sadisticness stems almost more from the fact that they are conniving the seemingly decent into the decadent and depraved. Most true evil and empty of all imagination are the ones whom market their job in life as a leader of ideas/morals of people whom see the big picture and see that no matter what one does in his/her lifetime the general concencious of art and creativity will continue in basically the same categories of people. Anyway, the bland humanoids whom ride the wave of ideas/thoughts put forth by others are the ones who become the ones who try and dictate who force others to live by the so called laws taken into account. The perfect concoction of individualism and inspiration is a small margin. Alot of the breakthrough idea's and technologies that we have today are here because of the persistence and learning which the final creator took from past attempts and saw the way that they were trying to do it and even if he knew the way he would attempt to change/edit this idea that it may be completely incorrect or denounced but by that critique that one hears, if it's from people whom have no idea what they are talking about but if a highly respected peer sees your idea, who knows? That could trigger the creative juice that through out history has been the leading purveyor of inventions which have manipulated dirt and grass into space shuttles. The human mind is a bewildering and complex machine that requires a good number of factors to come into play. Even then one may live a life of carelessness and empathy with humanity but by a single traumatic event that person's entire view and personality is dissolved in a vaught of confusion and anger at the pettiness and seemingly randomness that whatever higher power which dictates the justice of the universe works. In all fairness, life isn't fair. Their probably isn't a hell. This comes from the fact that we were not only taught but shown that pain, depression and bad deeds usually result in the same coming back tenfold on you. This is the case which many have stated, obviously in hopes, that they know that they themselves will live a good life. Sure it will contain mistakes but very rarely if ever will a person of true thought and idea commit an action or state a phrase that is completely for the purpose of hurting another. This idea of pain/pleasure and the things that bring about both are the sort of grey area's in humanity. If a man loses his leg in war, but because of this graphic and completely unnecessary action which not only resulted in him being hurt but in others whose ideology is based on the same attempt at gaining a better life for the people of the armies fighting, will he finally see every human being as equal and from this raise a child who will go on and cure cancer/end violence. The true flaw of the human experiment is greed. Greed powers just about every disgusting act which people do to better their own lives. The manipution and dissolutionment which people have, especially in America, view greed as the overall push that determines an individuals level of success. But the story and way that he transformed his thoughts over time (surely drugs and the friends that he had certainly played a huge if not monumental role in this process) but the true creators of individualism are the ones who create/think/write by nature and subsequently by curiosity. I think the people whose genius gets diluted by personal pleasure or greed or what have you, or simply by being weak individuals on a level of being easily swayed/interpreting others actions as pure and coming from a place of methodicalness which the individual essentially builds and adds to, but tend to not think on a lower level or more sadistic level of thinking which people whom are good at pretty much swooning ideas/thoughts into people's brains whom aren't conscious in that sense. Basically I think people whom create and talk to express ideas which they hope others will, regardless of intelligence, offer insight on an idea that most great artists see but can't pinpoint in affable terminology. I've been watching Malcolm Gladwell interviews for the past three hours so sorry for the rant.


MOO---sick
