To Be or Not to Be
When I took a course on English Lit in college, our professor belittled this famous passage from Shakespeare as being trivial and meaningless. I now marvel at his ignorance – in this case, Shakespeare was right.
This is the human race’s biggest problem – one we continually have to deal with – and one we will never solve. But we think we have come up with a Final Solution for it: to destroy ourselves (or actually, our selves) – which we see as nothing but a problem. We have abandoned reality for Super Reality. We have become insane, but on such a large scale it has become invisible.
We have decided Not to Be.
