Forget the Particulars
Seeing the forest through the trees in an age of specialization, manipulation and rampant image posturing.
Forget the particulars. Zoom out. Be okay with uncertainty. Forget the advices and admonishment of experts, officials and authoritarians.
Forget the particulars. Eschew alignment. Reject the sophistry of intentional obfuscators. Stand for your principles and values, not some symbol of your identity.
Forget the particulars. Ask not what you can know, but what can reliably even be known, and not just inferred from assumption and bias.
Forget the particulars. Do not seek a satisfying abstraction that explains what does not need explained.
Forget the particulars. Stop seeking the source of your experiences outside of yourself. Ask yourself if your experiences might not be an affect, but also a simultaneous cause.
Forget the particulars. Hope comes from rejecting norms, not obeying them. You are too alive to conform to cynicism about your own existence.
Forget the particulars. Zoom out. Embrace non-certainty. Accept death. Find the reason to have lived, rather than the reason to live.
