Xero's other waste of space

the tried and true

Millions every year. A predetermined path that is chosen, by the individual and those encumbering their surroundings. Views projected onto people from childhood and expected of them in adulthood. And all in order to weed out the favorable. Now let me get this straight here, survival of the fittest has to be logical right? Alright, then why are those following paths made by others in order to check and see if they are worthy the ones that supposedly succeed better? Is it because the same people expecting it have also followed this same route and by doing so have created a structured belief system out of it? No it couldn’t be, could it?

You’ve got it, the government is a belief system. Society as well. For we’re not born social we’re simply capable of it, what we learn is to survive better but in my opinion the way most humans learn to survive is kind of pathetic. Working jobs to make money to support their offspring and then eventually dying, and people say the point of life is to be happy but that’s such a useless thing to say.

As I’m sure I’ve written many times before no ones life is simply a bliss of happiness, no in fact most peoples lives are pretty mediocre most of the time, sad some of the time, and happy even less of that time. So the point of life is to be happy? Well most people aren’t using most of their time being happy so that’s kind of pointless. Why make the point of life one of the least truly achievable things there is? What is the point anyway? You see we’re here by pure chance and it’s a gamble when it comes to predicting whats going to happen.

So back to the original subject, a predetermined path. You follow along and you’re supposed to get more money then those who don’t and then what? The chances of me being one of the lucky upper class in this country anytime soon doesn’t seem to be in my favor, so am I going to just be average all my life, or below it? And those who do have all the cash, whats with them, what side of evolution are they on? Sometimes it seems they’re worse off then the poor. And why? Because they only seem to care about themselves, and that means less gene line penetration in the end, if you know what I mean. Seems like relationships are a complete joke to most of the rich. Ah they’re a joke to begin with who am I kidding.

Yeah so having kids is pointless and I can give you so many reasons as to why but that’s another topic for another day. So since I don’t see any point to all of this, what path will I be taking? How many times when I see a fork in the road will I decide to bend the fork and take neither? Because both are predetermined, even if one is less traveled. And how many times will I just decide to just turn around?

How hard will life be for me? How have my actions hurt my place in society? Does it matter? Is there a point? What would trying to join back up with one of the predetermined paths do other then increase my place in society? How would it benefit my knowledge, my mental state, and plain and simple, what I want, my own equilibrium, my own so called happiness?

There are many things I do not know and what I do know is that right now my life is seemingly falling apart, however I somehow have not yet lost it, in fact I seem to be improving. Is this a new step or yet another illusion?
