'Boredom' Chapter

Boredom

Boredom is the assumption that everything is what we assume it to be. You control by assuming. You endorse what you may have mistaken for genuine perceptions when all they are is habitual thoughts. Hell is repetition. Hell is boredom. We are meant to be receptive creatures, connected to events around us. We need stimulation for our bodies and minds to maintain healthy tone, otherwise we atrophy. The first symptom of this decay is boredom.

We are bored when we think we are unimportant, our choices unimportant. What has caused the mind to do this is veneration of the golden calf, the bull market, the dead alpha. Want to cease being bored? Don’t change your world. Change your questions.
