Life at № 42 by E.M. Coutinho
Curiosity, hope and the constant impulse to compare ourselves- all part of the human evolutionary strategy. Doesn’t that mean we can whittle everything down into those terms? What follows is that most of what we experience (I mean all) is simply substitutory strategy. Our clothes, car, house, books, friends & sex partners are all zeros and ones for the ultimate end: survival/propagation/success of our subgroup.
We put most of our effort and energy into experiencing and analyzing what happens on the surface- which gives it undue importance.
How different does the world begin to look when we try to get to the core of things?
