A serious music insight from Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity” reminds me of how I coped with the subway for so long. I bought a headset and listened to music.

Smoking is bad for health. Everybody knows it, it’s responsible for 90% of lung cancers. Of course, they forgot to tell you about the drug called crystal meth that helped shape the world post-1945.

There’s something indecent with a message that is hammered on a daily basis as if justice had you in your sight from dusk until dawn. Everybody knows that if it was that simple, things would be easy.

That’s why I’m going to talk about the subway. The subway is bad for your health. It’s the #1 suicide method for the population. True, you can read a book. Only if you have to tolerate 45 minutes of commute.

All The Small Things Are Big, Trust Me

They say the Mediterranean diet is very good for the heart. It doesn’t mean it’s optimal though. I guess it depends on your objective then.

There’s a French song telling the story of a piano player who stands up while playing. The fan mentions that it might be a detail but to her, it means a lot.

A pertinent analysis of love was that the price was not cheap. Go figure why, after all it might just be hypnosis. You’re intrigued and you start investigating.

Scarred for life! Make sure to negotiate a compensation. I used to go to strippers club and even pay for love.

Some financial experts talked once about “unwhoring” the workplace. This means that when things get ugly, you should remain by their side. Otherwise, you will be a whore. And things get ugly every 2 or 3 years.

Half of Humanity Are Sinners and Crazy

Now it’s a strange thing to say. I’m a man so my opinion is biased but it’s clear that we have to decide who is responsible here. Men or women?

One thing I’m sure of is that men and women are not that different. When you meet a good lover, it changes everything. It seems that, in all Abrahamic religions, a good lover was celebrated for 2000 years.

It seems also a good lover is the most frequent cure for all kind of troubles and pressure.

I must say I do agree with that. The last time I met someone, it seemed like all her problems disappeared. And suddenly, I had lots of issues to deal with.

I tried to find someone new but I decided to concentrate on my independence. I always did. I ended up in mental health institution for a month because the doctors were happy to take from me 24,000 euros.

Longest Journey Begins With A Simple Step

Sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin. I guess we all know the solution because when we want to fight, we usually know where to hit. And the solution is not to dwell on the blue note.

What about the purple note? You know that note : 300 days of sun a year. Even in Paris and Seattle. For example, what about that reward: “betrayed desire and a piece of the game”?

I got a piece of WW2 and its aftermaths. I must say I’m a bit funky. The moral bankruptcy and blurred lines between love and hate have made this nightmare come true.

Nevermore won’t work because people will be enticed to do it again then. This is typical witchcraft and I experience it on a daily basis. Until you play your death away.

New Religions Without Wars and Finance

Maybe it’s time I reveal everything I know about religion. Religion means making people bond. But they all have a special message like Christianity.

I know Judaism deals with treachery and treason and we all know the message of Christianity: the next and forgiving. I think Islam is about music and intrigue.

That’s all for Abrahamic religions. Now Buddhism is interesting because he says that pleasure and pain are unavoidable and that you should try to make sense.

Manichaeism maybe is worth the read. I think it’s about knowing right from wrong and being moderate about certain things (like cigarettes, alcohol etc…).

I think the best is Zoroastrianism, a wonderful story teller. You wonder each day what will happen in the next episode. Of course, Hinduism might also grant us big rewards because we will be above the law.

And last but not least, we have the Maya message. They tell us that it’s just a matter of monitoring intense efforts like starting a philosophy blog. Because you have something to transmit.

Listen To The Sound, Much More Pertinent

Sight is a sense that takes a lot of effort for the brain to process. Sound is much more informative and it is a key to our balance. In the subway, the sounds are always the same.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have to stop for 30 minutes. There was an incident at station “Digestion” and a traveler is between life and death.

Virtual insanity is an easy scapegoat. I guess it’s in the way we use it. Sometimes, I start yelling at Facebook without really knowing why. But I know how.

When I was a child I had a fever. Now I got that feeling once again and you know what I’m talking about. I worked 5 long years for a lover and that job cost me 15 years of my life (at least).

Some said we got 10 years to lose if we catch them. Who were these men of lust, greed and glory? Behind the mask, the wound was obvious: identity?

What we’re living in?
Lemme tell ya…

Yeah, it’s a wonder man can eat at all
When things are big that should be small
Who can tell what magic spells we’ll be doing for us
And I’m giving all my love to this world
Only to be told
I can’t see
I can’t breathe
No more will we be

And nothing’s gonna change the way we live
‘Cause we can always take, but never give
And, now that things are changing for the worse, see:
Whoa, it’s a crazy world we’re living in!
And I just can’t see that half of us immersed in sin
Is all we have to give these

Futures made of virtual insanity, now
Always seem to be governed by this love we have
For useless, twisting, all that new technology
Oh, now there is no sound, for we all live underground

And I’m thinking what a mess we’re in
Hard to know where to begin
If I could slip the sickly ties that earthly man has made
And now every mother can choose the color
Of her child
That’s not Nature’s way

Well, that’s what they said, yesterday
There’s nothing left to do, but pray
I think it’s time to find a new religion
Whoa, it’s so insane!
To synthesize another strain
There’s something in these futures
That we have to be told

Futures made of virtual insanity, now
Always seem to be governed by this love we have
For useless, twisting, all that new technology
Oh, now there is no sound, for we all live underground
Oh!

Now there is no sound
If we all live underground
And now it’s virtual insanity
Forget your virtual reality
Oh, there’s nothing so bad
Nothing so bad, happy man
Oh, yeah
I know, yeah
(Take it to the dance floor)

I know I can’t know of
Of this virtual insanity we’re living in
Has got to change
Yeah
Things
Will never be the same
And I can’t go on
Where we’re living in
Oh
Oh, virtual insanity

Oh, this world
Has got to change
‘Cause I just
I just can’t keep going on in this virtual
Virtual insanity
That we’re living in
That we’re living in
And that virtual insanity is what we have
Yeah

Futures made of virtual insanity, now
Always seem to be governed by this love we have
For useless, twisting, all that new technology
Oh, now there is no sound, for we all live underground
Oh!Futures made of (now) virtual insanity
Now we all, we seem to be governed by a love
For these useless, twisting, all that new technology
And now there is no sound, for we all live underground
Yes, we do!
Oh!

(living in)
Now, this life that we live in
(virtual insanity)
It’s oh so wrong
Out of the window
(living in)
You know that there is nothing worse than
(virtual insanity)
(living in)
A man-made man
(virtual insanity)
Still there’s nothing worse than
(living in)
A foolish man
(virtual insanity)
Hey!

Virtual insanity is what we’re living in
Yeah
Well… It’s alright, now

I've been listening to music for more than 20 years, trying to get a message in each of the 5000 songs I listened to. I'm interested in all topics (sports, art, science, philosophy, health, travel). I connect the dots with contemporary music. This blog will be the result of more than 20 years of work on humanity (ripples in the curvature of spacetime).
