Sanity is:
Discovering how to fit yourself into reality.
As opposed to demanding reality fit itself into you.

Be unusual.
Be sane.
The benefits far outweigh the discomfort.

Hmmm. Those characters bear a striking resemblance to the local populace, hereabouts.
Yes. Insane is the word that most readily springs to mind.

I like your definition, crow. Most of the human activities that I witness are insane. In my experience, people are generally too self-absorbed, disconnected, scared, brainwashed, etc. to step away from themselves and realize or change their ridiculous behaviors.

edit: To most people, habit, comfort, and normalcy are sacred, and everything else is terrifying and foreign. Sometimes it is important to break habits just for the sake of breaking them. Then, from the outside, judge whether the behavior is insane or not.

Sounds like usual solipsism and narcissism of modern progress.

It's very odd that people call this 'progress'.
I've never understood the term 'progressive', either.
We start out new and open, then by degrees, regress towards the old and closed-up.
Every civilization regresses towards its own death, while referring to this activity as 'progress'.

The perception of reality, when morality is perception of human's rules.

What happened to the Taoism Crow? Does the master not sit at rest, while all other things are in motion, for she is within the Tao?

Try to conform and you will become a non-comformance. If you want to become straight, let yourself be crooked. If you want to be realistic. Let yourself become unrealistic.

Taoism is a fine tool, from which to further develop.
Not an end in itself, but a stable launchpad, aiming at the stars.

I suppose I am alone enjoying my time down here. :)

The stars are here, too.
No distance is involved, neither up nor down.

What I meant is that I don't have goals, I'm here for the richness of experience. Not to be confused with hedonism.

That is what people mean when they talk about stars right?

I've given up imagining I have any idea WTF people are talking about when they talk about anything.


NHA

Ahaha, from the makers of Dekotora, who else?



Honestly, the dehumanizing aspect makes it kinda hot.

...or you can bend the arc of reality in your direction.
