The simple fact is that people are different ~ in talent, abilities, personal characteristics, and finally appearance. In short, we're definitely not the same. All the social aspirations and other arrangements that are based on ideology of equality, are finally dying out. However, the fact that we're not the same, doesn't mean that we aren't equal. And also those who're most aware of inequalities, the easiest believe in equality. Enough of the moral and political sermon, I wanted to say something else. I admit, really big idiots are people who believe that they're something more just because they have more of something, but these aren't the worst and don't disturb me the most. Especially lately, the individuals who bug me most, are those who thing there's something more due to being more "spiritual". Even the term is making me cringe, but lately the word "spirituality" is like a plague spreading to all classes of our apparently increasingly desperate society. The most common infectious carriers are bourgeois pseudo intellectuals, who see this perfectly imbecile concept as spirituality and spirituality seems insanely modern and even "fancy". In an aphorism, which was created a few years ago, I wondered why the most refined people are rarely ever refined. It's a similar paradox here. People who actually have, pardon the expression, spiritual quality, you'll never hear talking about spiritual dimensions, as it appears to be quite self-evident to them. Like a good opera singer will never be discussing about having a musical ear, or as a truly gracious woman will not think about beauty. When a farmer smells the quality of their last years manure, it has more to do with spirituality, than what the vast majority of spiritual inclined nutters do. Not to mention the strong correlation case about the word spirit. If the above continue, most people will soon be so spiritual that it will start an avalanche of problems in all areas of their "dedicated" lives. First, they will need to begin changing automatic doors in shopping malls as sensors probably won't be detecting these spiritualists anymore. Can you imagine a dry, bald spiritualist, waiting and waiting for someone normal to come along for the door to finally open? The problem will only be a big transition, which will make the basis of logical stages and semi-/quasi-vegetarianism through fruitarianism it'll come to this, that they'll only eat spiritually, therefore waiting in front of the door becomes obsolete. There is no need. Furthermore, I would be cautious in buying shares of mobile operators, as the majority of the population will be using the good old telepathy, in which texts and similar inventions become completely useless junk. I'll say this much, it's not all grim. I also see some plus sides, for example in the field of sexually transmitted diseases. Sex is rare amongst spiritual nutters, and even then only spiritual. Of course if there's no 9-year old boys around... oh, no, wait, those would be the indulgences of zee priests... Anyhooooo.. For the tl;dr crowd... In short, even if you aren't sure, it's time to get equipped with the necessary equipment for spiritual life. Some really stupid books, an extravagant stone/chrystal/amulet/etc. and few most strange exercises every morning will suffice that you won't be announced as a complete neanderthal. And may the force be with you!
