I fully agree. When I watch people who ask me and I answer what I’m doing now. They want to know what kind of work I do and if it is on a socially high niveau. And, in addition, they’d like to know how much money I make per year.

So even these questions are dead. They show exactly the condensed decadence of our being.

When my answer – “I do nothing, but I got plenty of spare time, I don’t need a lot of money any more. I’m quite happy and satisfied with this.Much more than ever before” – comes to those people, they don’t know how to deal with it. It is so extremely out of their sight. It doesn’t fit in our society at all.

So, in summary, I’m not yet completely off this dead being, but the time periods when I’m alive are steadily increasing :-)
