30 Days of Boredom-Day Fourteen An Experiment in Writing Fiction By AJ Mars “To remain in a life of Ignorance and Deception is to be Ordinary
and Sociable. If we are to move beyond our past society and its inequalities and inefficiencies, then individuals will have to find the courage to remain independent in their thinking, yet retain the ability to communicate with those who have made clear their own intentions to hold self-worth, tenuously based on a sense of personal mastery, above Ultimate Truth.” “Those that dare to defy complacency of thought must be wise in their defiance and careful in their criticisms. Consider a plant that is overfertilized, resulting in a swift death from overabundane of the same chemical compounds that if given slowly and steadily would have promoted fast and sturdy growth. Thus I would advise you to conduct yourself moderately, choosing wisely where and when to fertilize. Some minds may be able and eager to accept your words, and others will see large motions of good-will as a movement against them, poisonous food. With these be gentle, and let the idea slowly help such people grow, till they eventually reach a state of openness that they may accept ever more intense degrees of deviation from their former complacency. The same amount of fertilization that could kill a small
seedling will barely sustain a mighty tree, and thus it shall be with acceptance; fostering an everincreasing dislike for ignorance while maintaining a gentle heart and measuring words wisely will see us continuously prosper in our quest for Truth. Thank you for having me, may you be blessed in your endeavors, goodnight.” As the room burst into applause those in the front row might have noticed the humble Doctor shaking slightly, with happiness and nervousness,while he walked off the stage. The host thanked Dr. Kahn for speaking, announced that the first course would be served shortly and told everyone to please enjoy themselves tonight.
