The herd isn’t going anywhere, it’s just going. This whole thing is just play, or a play, as in a dramatic production. The only meaning of life and the universe is dramatic spectacle for the amusement of the sole beholder as it manifests in us, through us, and as us.
The truth is that there’s nothing for humanity to evolve into. We are completely dialed in. We have all the drama there is to have. We operate at full-spectrum emotion, which means we have achieved peak drama. Speed and heading don’t matter on a shoreless sea, there’s only motion for the sake of motion. Drama for the sake of drama.
