Society is organized insanity. Myth is the milk of civilization. It keeps the poor sedated and the rich justified. It keeps the lottery system and the insurance companies fat. Security is a myth. There is only one ending to every story...Death.
"Let death find us as we are building up our matchstick protests against its waves."
Alain de Botton
"Of all the world's wonders, which is the most wonderful? That no man, though he sees others dying all around him, believes that he himself will die." -- Yudhishtara answers Dharma, from "The Mahabharata"
"What would the average man do with a full consciousness of absurdity? He has fashioned his character for the precise purpose of putting it between himself and the facts of life; it is his special tour-de-force that allows him to ignore incongruities, to nourish himself on impossibilities, to thrive on blindness. He accomplishes thereby a peculiarly human victory: the ability to be smug about terror."
