In life we can not let our guard down, but we can not live in a state of permanent alert. The equilibrium state doesn’t come standard, it is an effort that the individual himself must perform. I say this because normally we do not do it, I mean we often react in unconscious and disproportionate way to the challenges posed by the coexistence, a very important aspect of existence, since we live in urban centers: our behavior only takes center stage in front of our kind we do not mind in the least that a partridge or a wild boar watch us making a mistake or being a jerk, probably because we believe that we will not be judged.
I think it has to be the own architecture of the mental process which determines this fact, apparently the logic and feelings belong to different areas of the brain , so it is difficult to rationalize emotions, treat them with cold impartiality, separating them from ourselves, as when we make a calculation or we do a rutinary chore. The problem is that emotions can hardly be ignored and although they are there for something, often they get in the way: it would be more useful to contain them that to let them to drag us, but we normally realize this just later.
I’m not a fan of logic, I think the subconscious is hiding us something, we can intuit it. But I do not think that passion, fear, hatred or greed are good charioteers, especially because history and especially in this country, is full of tragic examples. What I mean is that the method of categorization or catalogation which we use regularly with others is disgusting, it stinks to prejudice, moreover almost always they are not even ours, but that we have imported them from media or any other source, such as family or friends; the fact is that most of the time, we do not judge, we prejudge. Prejudices are beings related with appearances, fortunately most of us know how tasty is the blue cheese, for instance, it shows we always have to deepen, not left alone with the aspect. But evidently if we think a little, the first impression never is enough, and you can only judge the tree by its fruits, as they say, we can speculate on the outcome through the appearance of its flowers for example, but we have no certainty until its condition becomes manifest. “To implement” is the basis of what we call “learning”, something we tend to forget.
It would have been particularly useful that we would have taken into account such considerations when choosing our political representatives, has been sad to see how has triumphed “it is better a known evil than an unknown good”, an example of stupid pun, elevated to the category of sacred gospel by the art of repetition and thus widely supported, for reasons perfectly unknown to me. Make no mistake, it is called fear and madness, panic maybe, because we have chosen to continue consuming a proven toxic product, rather than tasting a different one that no one has tried: we did not want to learn anything new because profit organizations have striven in to show that the deceptive color of the pistils and the sinister fragrance of the flowers of the unknown nefarious tree, resemble of those of a fossil, an extinct specimen, absolutely lethal course, which we only know by references in encyclopedias of paleobotanist.
