    Normality is a social weapon, sometimes I wield it. If you start to fear it, just remember that its power is your belief in it. Don't feel like you need to be normal, just feel like you need to be effective enough to achieve your dreams. It's the difference between living for others and living for yourself. If you fight normality, as if it has substance, you're still letting others dictate your life.

    Normal (and sets of standards, customs, etc.) can be considered a baseline. It ought to be recognized because it's a large part of the way the world works, but it doesn't necessarily need to be followed.

    Building up traditions is fine and saves us some thinkin' power that we can use elsewhere--imagine if we had to reexamine everything every moment of the day--but we should also figure out better ways to do things, to live our lives, to enhance our daily routines, to navigate the world, and so on.

    I'd say--learn 'the rules,' then create better ones.

    If we establish a new, better 'normal' by pushing the envelope and subverting the current normal, then we've done some damn fine service.

    Sometimes, yeah.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I've never been 'normal', and frankly, I find it totally repulsive.

    Well, what is normal to me is probably not normal for someone else which means they have their own normal which might in fact scare me but no my normal does not scare me at all in fact i would be lost without the hardy raft of my normal ocean bellowing waves beneath my feet.
