    Smile Your Own Voice

    The medium is the message. And the medium here is the normal voice.

    The normal voice is found in every mouth. It is promiscuous. It is infectious. And let's face it - it's dirty.

    The normal voice is for those who have not yet discovered their own voice. So they must speak like everyone else. The normal voice is voice you are having when you are not having your own voice.

    But worse, the normal voice is threatened by those who have discovered their own voice. So those who don't speak in the normal voice are met by personal insults. And even worse, they are met by group bullying.

    It doesn't matter so much what you say, it is how you say it. And the whole world, it seems, speaks in the same way - the normal voice. And the voice police are always watching to make sure you don't discover your own voice.

    And what they won't tell you is that each word brings its own satisfaction spoken in your own voice.

    What if you're the first person who made the normal voice? It was your voice, and everybody followed? (Pictures everybody speaking like Victor all of a sudden.)

    Interesting. But wouldn't the normal voice be an average depiction of all voices reshaped and edited into the most accepted standard, so that all individuals would be able to feel a common ground. A home among all others. Perhaps the peace inside versus the peace on the outside. What would be better?

    That sounds pretty good, Oaky. I mean, as I think about it, there is no such thing as a "normal" voice per se... it's simply a dialogue of common ground where a myriad number of voices can understand and be understood.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Ah, you see, you betray yourself every time you open your mouth.

    You speak in logic, you speak in reason, but everything you say is in the normal voice.

    I can smell the normal voice on your breath and taste it on your tongue.
