You are what you eat, read, see and consume. Everything that you have taken all along could determine your life. If there was no “social poison”, you would grow up naturally and beautifully. To be biological, you will have the whole new cells in your body every 7 years. Lets see the cycle of human life.
0 – 7 Year: The Egocentric Emperor
Everyone were born with no ability to help themselves. That is why the baby of human is the weakest creature compared to other animals. Thus, they need help from their parents serving food, clothes and shelters for them. They will be helped in everything. Just cry out loud and get service. With ignorance, they misunderstood all exist only for them. Ego starts to grow this stage.
7 – 14 Year: The First Adventurer
Then the egocentric children turn to be interested in their surrounding more than themselves. They just come out of their centre, seek adventure and ask so many questions that parents get so tired to answer them all. They are as if philosopher who interfere in everything. They even analyse things by cracking them out to see the inside even their own same-gender friends. That is when eternal friendship comes since the sex issue hasn’t visited to them yet.
14 – 21 Year: The Casanova Theatre
Teenagers in this stage have the pure heart. They become interested in the opposite gender but the sex issue hasn’t visited to them yet. How they are interested in each other will be different from the previous stage. They aren’t interested in each other as they are but labeled them with the sex concepts. Romantic moment and flirting comes to prepare for the real world. Love becomes the biggest issue for them.
21 – 28 Years: Wanna-be the Stressful Dreamer
Then, they turn to be crazy on becoming success like Bill Gate and Warren Buffet. Always claim that the education failed to teach us success by referring successful people without being graduated from school. Blabbering the ambition, passion, inspiration and desire. Keep setting goals and taking actions for financial independence with no end. Dream about living with the luxurious house and the prime minister position. Stressful competition is the everything to them.
28 – 35: Citizen in the Line
Passing so many adventure, they would like to be stable, feel convenience and relax. They finally understand that not everything that they can really achieve. They just want some place that they can live peacefully without being disturbed. Insurance and saving money become the issue. They start to follow the traditional path society gives to them.
35 – 42: The Successful and Stubborn
Continuing the stable lifestyle, finally they achieve their desire so far. Now, they have to do everything to defend it. Ridiculous, I just think of the dwarfs in “The Hobbit” finally return their home castle and defend it. That is the conflict of the society. They become so mainstream that they are against any changes that come from ambitious people blaming them as the old-fashioned head.
All have happened within the university of life. The egocentric madness is the point of chaos among people in this university. One is thirsty for change. Another is thirsty to be against change. However, all do for themselves. They allow themselves to be identified to their own ideologies. To transcend these dysfunctional minds, we should learn death in the university of death.
To be continued.
