Something is so wrong with our society.

As ridiculous as it is, it does make sense. A human is a single ‘node’, that when connected with other humans, forms a network that enables a transformed sense of self, to each node.

Communities make up ‘macro-humans’ that share a collective perception of things, informed and validated by the implicitly or explicitly communicated perception of their peers.

What I’m getting at is that a Mac or a human is still adolescent. It’s growing up, but it’s his teenage years. It’s obsessed with money, alcohol, and has a naive concern for the ego.

Eventually, we will realize the absurdity and popularizing alcohol while demonizing psychedelics, but we need to learn first. Just as we individually learn lessons, the macro-human does too, just much much slower.
