Rascals are always sociable, and the chief sign that a man has any nobility in his character is the little pleasure he takes in others company. Arthur Schopenhauer

Le irony

Do you not realise that there’s ecstasy to be found in subjecting yourself to the tireless onslaughts of information overload that characterise our postmodern existence? We find ourselves in the middle of a paradigm shift, so naturally there are vestiges of modernism in your outlook on life, but they’re something you ought to work on eliminating. There’s positively no point in clinging to old, decrepit, decayed ideas that are of absolutely no use in postmodernity.

Embrace the fact that reality is disappearing and that your attempts to hold onto it and engage in the same ways of living as people before our time did, are ultimately futile. The best chance you have is to live in accordance with the times. From a modernist standpoint, of course the prospect of postmodernity is very black but the fact of the matter is that there’s no reason to be troubled or upset by this changing of the guard. Systems change, they get replaced, they transform themselves.

Your attempts to hold onto old values and modes of being is nothing more than trying to use a cup to collect water that has evaporated. What you’re trying to grab no longer has the form it once had and the implements that were suited for the old form are completely useless for the form that it has taken.
