I hate that by sharing this video it seems like I’m intelligence-signaling. I’m not. I honestly feel less intelligent by the day (this is partly the side effect of working alongside brilliant people). But there’s truth here. I am a person who spends most of his life in self-observation, wrapped up with self-honesty. It’s a lonely place at times.
I’m sharing this to communicate a simple message. A simple message best said by, of course, Kurt Vonnegut:
“I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.”
You aren’t alone. If you ever need community, even momentarily, I’m here.
