Existentialism & the 'average' mind

Reply Fri 28 Jul, 2017 04:25 am
How can the 'average' person's mind and level of consciousness identify with the existential attitude, mind, and questions posed to problems 'we' see?
They'd look at you like you're crazy, or say something dismissive, invalidate it w/ some simple-minded remark, making you feel insane, rather than them. What's that saying about, oh, it's no measure of sanity being well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society? (Krishnamurti?)

The "average mind" is wise. Live like the animal you are and be aware of thinking to much on problems that cannot be solved. Unfortunately I am not wise at all, never was, can't help you much on that regard...

Your use of punctuation is decidedly below average. At least you were right about the dismissive remarks. Then again, if you go around talking about how superior your mind is to everyone around you, what do you expect?

I am quite happy with my average mind.

On this showing, I expect they are looking at you like you're a dick.
