“How do we resolve the inherent tension between wanting to fully realize our potential, realize our selves as individuals as we stand with dignity and resist the tug of conformity. How do we avoid succumbing to a zombified trance state of blindly following others in a herd as sheep, as hampsters in a hamster wheel?”
– Jason Silva
Nonconformity is the most wonderful form of self expression there is. It shows that your power to be an individual is detached from usual, habitual daily life and simple convenience. You are unusual, unique, and free to live a creative, adventurous life. Be the mad ones, be weird, but most importantly be yourselves.
