Stuffing

September 18, 2017

That’s all I want, that’s all you need in life, is a little place for your stuff, ya know? // That’s all your house is, a place to keep your stuff. If you didn’t have so much stuff, you wouldn’t need a house.

You could just walk around all the time.

A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it.

– George Carlin

We’ve been indoctrinated into believing we can “own” stuff, or posses “stuff”.

What follows suit then, is the notion that other entities can “take” our stuff.

Or that, our stuff, doesn’t measure up to other people’s stuff, causing an illusionary need to get “better” stuff.

Worse yet, acquiring more stuff, under the deadly deeply imbedded meme “he who dies with the most toys (stuff) “wins”.

Wrong, he who dies with the most toys, dies, regardless how much stuff acquired.

Time for a new meme.

Whoever dies with no hate in their heart or animosity towards fellow space travelers, leaves a legacy of kindness and charity in their absence, wins.

Oh shit, that won’t work, can’t fit that on a t-shirt. Nevermind.

Stranger still, equating that giving and receiving material stuff expresses love.

An emotion on the metaphorical level of DaVinci’s hand of man to God, can’t even get close enough to express in words, let alone in stuff.

Somehow transferring that feeling into the purchased collection of particles shiny, large or one that makes noise, expresses love.

Most vile of all, using the military to threaten, intimidate, and kill sovereign citizens to secure resources “stuff” of varying countries because the corporments have the means and greed to take their “stuff”.
