23andme is hiding my extraterrestrial heritage why

the true secret to success is just getting too old and tired and disinterested in sabotaging yourself

I think it’s profound how we live long enough to see our sincere beliefs and hard work become ridiculous and obsolete as we mature but also sucks tbh lol

The evil eye ancient cultures tried to ward off is probably just our simulation’s tracking algo

I guess my point from the last post is, (excluding absolute necessity/opportunity), it’s probably better to work jobs that give you skills to be independent living somewhere cheap vs in a rat race where nothing is ever paid off and the consequences of that life is ecological disaster consumption

📄 Lori Emerson, “Did We Dream Enough?” THE THING BBS as an Experiment in Social-Cyber Sculpture, 2020
