Insanity… “The act of doing something repeatedly, expecting a different result”

18 July 2006


I have a lot of work to do, yet I cannot concentrate nor get into the swing of things. And so I write my second entry out of boredom, or should that be frustration.

Why is work mostly repetitive. Surely machines can do that. Don’t get me wrong, my job is a good job but it’s just not who I think I am.

I’d like to think of myself as someone more creative, and my employment just seems to sap that out of me. But the money’s good. Ah commercialism and avarice!

Why does my head tell me that that is the way things have to be, when I could quite happily live far away in a cottage by the sea, painting miniatures and writing thoughts and philosophies and listening to music of fancy?

Humans are wasted on work. We are called to a higher art, but society is not geared up to allow us to answer that call. When will come the time for robots to manage the workload, to free humans to pursue art, invention, philosophy and reason? Why do we pursue money so much? To live? To eat? To have shelter from the cold? Are these things unavailable to humanity without money or a form of bartering?

For money does indeed make the world go around. But that is a discussion for another time. I think I will categorise my posts.
