Some things I’ve been thinking myself

The Burning Man festival has always seemed to me to be the ultimate celebration of self-centered behavior, chock full of personal revelations that don’t lead to anything. Feelings of being closer to god leading to… nothing! No change, just a return to the grind. God no longer omnipotent but, instead, omnimpotent. I don’t get this faux hippie bullshit, revelations not leading you to new heights of understanding of the interconnectivity of all things, just a really far-out way to be into yourself and whatever dramatic, amazing thing you’re experiencing… for yourself.
