Probably due to the wide range people are exposed to and discover, meeting new people often means learning new things. I met two new people and both opened a door to another world. Another arena of possibilities in listening to music, the concept of digging for the backstory of a song or band to discover the meaning within the lyrics and music, and in practicing guitar. There was alot of considerations I didn’t consider at all when playing guitar on a song. Like timing the left and right hands, knowing when to let go and prepare your left or right hand for the next note. Or playing with loud and soft with a musical phrase to make it sound better.
The inconsistency with how humans are raised never ceases to interest me when someone sees or understands something I don’t. The same inconsistency makes me rage inside as to how shopaholics, addicts to products, addicts to experience, addicts to travel, addicts to work, addicts to play, exist. Because the inconsistency in upbringing allows such things as groups of people not seeing eye to eye and leaving it in distaste instead of both extending and reaching out with their words to come to understanding. The inconsistency seems at first glance to favor inequality because of the way different ways humans can operate, think, say, and do everything. But in spite of our differences we are physically the same design, of the same leaf, requiring the same food water and shelter, having to put up with a human body’s tantrums and physical experiences and ups and downs and putting up with the daily logistics of bringing our body from here to there, having to use the same language to communicate, and having to put up with unknown people and unknown environments.
You never know when you will meet someone and they introduce you to something completely new that’s a system meaning it has specific rules and conditions ending with the product or thing you see as it is. But the same human limitation of having to live as this human body unites our interests, overlaps many concerns, worries, troubles, enjoyments, but instead of honouring what overlaps and what we share, we highlight the differences in intelligence, street smarts, IQ, EQ, soft skills, hard skills, and we value this difference through money. Vast inequality through valuing very few jobs in the grand scheme of things alot of money, and the rest of the jobs on the bread line or slightly better. There isn’t a job for every person too, so what happens to the people without a job and no access to apply for a job and no education to be similar enough to get the job, and no family resources to live on with or without a job, no home to be the same like everyone else to get the job?
We cry out for visions of beauty on the TV, around us, in everything, but no one ekes a word for the ugliness the current money system imposes. How can you tell me people systematically tossed aside and labeled poor and lazy while there are countries and cities without an economy giving jobs to people with a wage they can live on is beautiful? But I as my generation is screwed up addicted to beauty paying tons of money to be ‘beautiful’ while the real beauty of everyone getting to live is unknown and a foreign idea to my generation. I’d say everyone from very young 7 to 40 are stuck on the idea of being beautiful with no glance at what beauty would imply in a society. The best my people can do is riot about personal losses in profit. But standing for those that aren’t given a voice or shoes to stand on is seen as weakness in the sick work education and beauty culture we all have responsibility for. Misleading each other to give to charity in spite of the poor results, avoiding discussion for a one shot one off solution to rid the world of poverty forever more, getting angry when told about poverty, irritated, pointing fingers at me for bringing it up. A SOLUTION? No, impossible, you’re trying to cheat and deceive me and my money and I won’t listen.
Meanwhile the solution is under everyone’s life and living, but with no coordination and no trust in anyone coordinating to get everyone to understand a message, a political economic one, peaceful one, by that statement you’re part of the problem and disease that’s humanity. It really shouldn’t matter that I or anyone old won’t benefit from this change, because like on the news talking about two trapped in an elevator or one killed by close partner, we’re putting human lives on the line every moment we don’t regularly do something to get everyone to understand. Understand, then coordinate to a political change a peaceful change to stop waging war on the weak and poor.
