The Human Race
The human race is actually quite strange. We do so many things on a day-to-day basis without actually questioning it. For example, imagine visiting Earth for the first time to find strange beings just slapping their hands together simultaneously.
“Wow, thanks guys. I feel really honoured that I was able to make you basically hit yourself a couple times for me.” Do you get why that’s pretty weird? If you haven’t realised already, I’m talking about clapping. Did someone just decide that that was a great way of showing others that you like something and everyone else was like “Sure, why not?” It sure does seem like it; especially as the entire population seems to mutually know what it is.
But that’s not all.
What’s make me question everything even more is sleeping. You’re either wondering how sleeping could possibly be abnormal or you know exactly where I’m going with this. We literally lay down at a certain time, on a specific assigned man-made item, wearing “special” clothes (that are actually normal clothes but we have decided to give it a new name) and then, we close our eyes, pretending to be asleep, until we actually succumb into darkness. Yes, I know that’s very melodramatic but you can’t deny that it’s at least partially true. Also, who even decided that sleeping was a night-time task?
Look – I get that there are probably scientific explanations behind everything. This research has practically become guidelines to the daily lives of us humans. It has corrupted every mother that refuses to let their “precious little cinnamon roll” of a teen to step outside and be rebellious. Which in their case always seems to be not wearing a coat. “Wait dear – where are you going without a coat? Have you heard the news, scientists have found that a dangerous virus is spreading in Africa. Don’t want you to be affected.” Mum, in case you haven’t realised yet, it’s the middle of the summer right now. Also, that’s in Africa!
Don’t get me wrong, it is fascinating but, every once in a while, we all have the right to question the world. That’s what got us to where we are now, isn’t it?
