Whenever I'm in the city I always look around with a critical eye, trying to understand the reality we live in. I was in Oxford Street yesterday & it was honestly surreal, everyone was super image concious, absorbed in themselves & this false idea of "individuality" by still conforming to some sort of cultural norm.
It made me think of a lecture that I watched by the great "Terence Mckenna" which is called "Culture is your operating system" which is also an observation that I had made before hand.
This is a short film about human culture in England, in a day.
"I think we should all aspire to make this upgrade.
It's very important that you have all the bells and whistles on your operating system, otherwise some bodies going to get a leg up on you. Well, what's wrong with the operating system we have consumer capitalism 5.0 or whatever it is... well... its dumb, its retro, its very non competitive, its messy, it waste the environment, it waste human resources, its inefficient, it runs on stereotypes, it runs on a low sampling rate which is what creates stereotypes"
