Abstract/Description

This is my life philosophy. I believe that the practice of philosophy has mostly become too consumed by a pedantic nature. Arguing over things that don't matter and striving to distance ourselves from nature. From all the books I have read and the whole two decades I have spent on this planet have informed me that this petty lifestyle is not the way to live. People are not meant to live like most do. Born, conform, school, conform, college or job, conform, work until you die or are handicapped, conform and at the end regret all the things you didn't do because you were too busy wasting your time with trivial pursuits. Fame, power, and wealth are not equivalent to life. My presentation is meant to shake you from this nightmare and wake you up, before you realize your dead.
