Faulty Logic: About the Pursuit of Being Special and Thoughts About Sanity

Normal is the state of being…well, normal, the usual, uninteresting, unseen, and unnoticed.

Why would anyone want to be normal?

Anything not normal, is that special or abnormal? Is there supposed to be a difference?  If there is,  then is “special” a pleasing form of an abnormality?

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  I think that was from Einstein.

If people all pursue to be special, statistically speaking, eventually everyone will be normal to an extent.  A new norm will set after everyone else becomes “special.”

Assuming there is a new normal, then those seeking to be different won’t be special.  The process goes on repeat cycle.  Then the same thing happens again.

If this is the case, then it is true that the only sane people are the ones inside the mental asylum.

  1. The dividing line between sanity and insanity is only… a hairline… 🙂 (hmmm I guess that explains my existence)

    What we “get used to” becomes normal in the long run…

    What we “don’t usually encounter” is treated “abnormal”…

    Its like:

    If I were born with six fingers, and all through my life I have discovered how to make the sixth finger compliment the other five “normal” fingers….. for me its “normal”…

    But because the norm is a human being should have five fingers on each hand, my hand with six fingers will be seen by most as “abnormal”..

    My question is… Is it?

    Hi Brian!! Be safe!
