We normalise the optimal. We breathe, but do not hold our breath; we eat, but we eat healthy; we sleep enough; we move, but we do not move further; we look to both sides, but we do not look around. We live knowing that this is how everything is supposed to be; every vibration makes us feel that something is not right, the stronger it is, the more it shifts our balance. We are quietly holding our inner balance in tune with the stream, not moving. We neutralise these vibrations with our convictions, as if they hold no meaning.

Suddenly we find ourselves in an alternate space, convinced that we have not moved. We adjust with every step, quietly normalising new details and correcting our optimal reality, not noticing that we have moved forward. The journey is sensible, yet intangible. The real world is lost, we are left with the vibrations that echo subtly from the constructions of our self-made world.

And then we feel. We feel feelings that we restrain in our normalised state. We love, we hate, we panic, we grieve, we enjoy. Completely, acceptingly, faithfully. Sincerely. Finding new means of support, grasping everything, yet not holding on to anything. The accumulated energy is spent on finding and sensing. We cry, we scream, we run, we play, we fight.

Close your eyes. Sit, breathe, purify and remember. Normalise your nascent optimal state.

“A sensory overload, which paradoxically results in sensory deprivation: a state, in which all crucial social competences - may it be sympathy or telepathy or empathy - are disabled and deteriorate, or worse, are extinguished. The result is the infamous triple A syndrome. Amnesia, apraxia, aphasia: the inability to remember, to operate, to speak."
