Lying in the Gregarium




There is no obligation to interact with others.
It can help.
It will also make things harder.
Another choice you must make for yourself.

The vanity of love or the inhumanity of indifference?
Little wonder we've become masters of obfuscation.

Without the tyranny of desire
we would subside into egalitarian nonbeing.
The question is, would this be a good thing or not?

I would fight so hard to remain myself
if I knew what I was fighting for.

The only cure for curiosity is truth.
No fiction will suffice.
Not even happiness.

The answer is in the last place I will look.
