are all different and need to be subgrouped
with the people we relate to. why are subgroups
a bad thing?
our brain chemistry makes us each unique and to
say that we are the same and our minds need the
same inputs is ignoring basic human nature.
people’s understanding and comprehension is different.
This movie answered so many questions that I have been thinking about for so long:
1) Marketing seems useless and somewhat evil
2) Hollow financial system
3) Technology should be able to solve all
How are we supposed to let go of the existence
