I think one of the reasons I feel so alone in this world is that I am surrounded by closed minds. I am unable to talk openly with my closest acquaintances because they have minds that are programmed in Read Only Memory.
There’s nothing worse than getting that “look” when you say something that is out of the ordinary. That look that you get when they just can’t comprehend anything different than what they are programmed for. Like you’ve blown their mind. Once you get that look, you have to stop because if you continue then they will surely burst into flame or shut down due to overload.
As a result, I have to keep all my amazing thoughts and desires secret. That really sucks because bottling up awesomeness can cause a psychological embolism. One day soon I surely hope to find someone who is alive inside before I become dead inside.
So where do you find real, live, open-minded people? Where are they? Are they hiding from the zombies like I am? Do they put on the same common-man facade so the zombies will let them be? Fans of The Walking Dead will know the trick of covering yourself with zombie guts and blood so that you will smell like one of them and be able to walk among them to get to safety. It’s like that. I’m tired of being covered in zombie guts
I wonder if we can come up with some kind of secret sign or symbol. Something like a Freemason’s ring that can indicate to others than you are one of them.
A ring could be good. It needs to be a symbol that can be worn on a shirt. Maybe on a flag. We need something.
I just did a Google image search on “open mind symbol” and this one caught my eye. The web page it is on mentions open mind but there’s not much there. I like it.
It is kind of reminiscent of The Deathly Hallows. That could be a good thing. What do you think? It’s kind of basic and could possibly be stylized a bit. Any open-minded artists out there? It doesn’t necessarily HAVE to be this image. Something like it.
I also ran across the silhouette of a man with a hinged cranium but that’s too spot-on. It needs to be more mysterious and not immediately obvious to the zombies.
Let’s start a new thing! This can be real. We don’t have to hide. We just need a way to find each other.
I did an image search and it looks like this symbol is for Alchemy. Transmutation, Turning something from Negative to Positive. Healing. The Philosopher’s Stone. That still might be a good representation of an open mind. I like it even more now.
