You need other people
More than you need to be ‘right’.
Dystopias are usually created
By those trying to build utopias.
You must knock people off of the pedestals
That others put them on.
Ultimately, it is good for them.
When someone says you don’t have ‘taste’
What they are really saying is that you don’t have their taste
And you can ignore them.
Getting older sucks
(…at least based on my experience)
But it is also a privilege,
Because many people die before they get the chance to grow old.
I want to get along with everybody,
Not everybody wants to get along with me.
Your ability to keep learning (and adapting accordingly)
Provides some assurance (…or perhaps the only assurance?)
That your future will be better than your past.
Many of our future technological problems
Begin as philosophical problems.
Put another way;
You can begin to solve a philosophical problem now
In order (…perhaps) not to have a technological problem later.
This is will be increasingly important as technology grows more powerful.
