hari present in society law
hari present in society law: ‘we have created a society where huge numbers of our fellow citizens can’t bear to be present in their lives and have to medicate themselves to get through the day‘ Johann Hari
version of it in lost connections .. thinking i got the exact quote from some video interview
adding page after watching John Nash doc:
35 min – rational thought .. he wrote.. imposes a limit on a person’s relation to the cosmos
he later called his remission periods.. interludes of enforced rationality..
to some extent..sanity is a form of conformity
people are always selling the idea that people with mental illness are suffering.. but it’s really.. not so simple.. i think mental illness or madness can be an escape also..
and after watching break free adidas ad
alike – film

A society of lonely people, taught to think life is about money, left to scream at each other through screens, will have a depression and anxiety crisis. If they are then told their pain is just due to a chemical malfunction in their skulls, that crisis cannot be comprehended.

Depression, anxiety & addiction are not the problem. They are symptoms of the underlying problem – a culture where many people are disconnected (through no fault of their own) from the things that make life worth living.
from Paul J Rosch page:
Dr. Alexander Berglas’ work, Cancer; Its Nature, Cause and Cure (1957). Throughout this book runs the theme that cancer is a disease from which primitive peoples are relatively or wholly free, and that we are “threatened with death from cancer because of our inability to adapt to present day living conditions.

70k died of drug O/D’s in 2017. Combined w/this week’s Economist article showing the US’ suicide rate continues to rise even as the global average falls, it suggests something is very out of order in the US. https://t.co/mxvSoGAup9 (http://twitter.com/LukeGromen/status/1068138654932107265?s=17)

The core of addiction is not wanting to be present in your life, because your life is too painful a place to be. This is why imposing more pain or punishment on a person with an addiction problem actually makes their addiction worse.

I love smoking. It will probably kill me. But if I tried to quit, it would almost certainly kill you. You ever see a Godzilla movie? Like that except crossed with Chernobyl and also with opposable thumbs and fingers to enter launch codes. Be very grateful for Big Tobacco.

@dreamysleeper: The weird things I do myself, to motivate me into the weird gyrations society pressures me to do Why can’t I just fucking gyrate? I need a solution
@dreamysleeper: Why can’t I be like all the people I know, content w/ maintaining the same personality FOREVER? I can do it for a while; but then learn enough that I’m essentially born a new person who wants an adventurous life “No, you childish ephemeral personality: live & die bored”
@dreamysleeper: I’m going to be a weirdo who literally puts on a mask to do my work. Get into the right mindset. Good thing I work from home People compliment my professionalism, but a huge amount of madness goes into maintaining it

Realized something about life
One must cultivate madness within to harmonize w/ a mad society. Quite doable — unless you have antibodies against madness. Then you constantly feel sick — your body fights the disease you introduce into yourself (http://twitter.com/dreamysleeper/status/1142754952634404866?s=17)
