'Self Development' Chapter
We have the potential to uncover self-awareness on a scale that makes even our brightest minds look shallow and petty. Is this not desirable? Humans insist that they have better ideas than nature does, but your brain is not your brain, it’s natures brain, and your judgements and rational thought are not evidence of your evolution, they are a virus, memetic corruption.
To me, self-development is developing a self. Actually specializing your inner mind to broaden the entire consciousness of our planet. When we seek to “work” we are seeking to sleep. We are avoiding awareness. We want the comfort of the worker bee.
