The Solo Theorem

You know, I meant to write this way earlier, but I got really busy, with tests and assignments.  Thankfully, the assignments were individual assignments.  Scholars continually crap about synergy raising productivity and theories like 1+1=3.  Well, it is not true in the environment of school (unless somehow you can fulfill following conditions).  There are several reasons why, starting with the fact that it takes time for two people to gel.  Secondly, different intellect levels.  Thirdly, different attitude towards the assignment.

Back to the main story.  There was a dark period in my life, when I felt desperate to get that sense of belonging.  I became someone of no opinion; simply going along with the vast majority.  It was really sad.  That is not how it should be.  Everyone should have their own objectives and goals in life, therefore, resulting in having their own agenda.  If it should fall in alignment with others along the way, great.  Liken this to buses.  Sometimes, two buses may be traveling on totally different routes, sometimes similar routes, sometimes, routes that diverge after a certain distance.  But you won't find two bus services going by the exact same route (what would be the point), and that is how it should be as well.  No two humans are exactly the same.  You need to get on with your own route.

What I am driving at, is well, stop giving a damn about people who don't matter.  The Solo Theorem, doesn't dictate you to be heartless.  It simply expects you to channel your emotions and feelings in a logically and sound way.  The bottom line:  Care about people that should and do matter to you. 

You see, it is always more enjoyable to operate alone.  Batman fought crime alone.  Sure, he had his butler, but his butler didn't literally fight side by side with him.  Yeah, there was Robin, but once he grew up, he left, didn't he?  Superman and Spidermen flew (swung) solo as well.  X-Men was a coalition but its members came and went, with no long-term obligations.  Ever wonder why vampire films (with werewolves getting owned) are popular?  Well, quite simply, it oozes sexiness the way vampires are aloof and move alone. 

What I am saying is, there is nothing wrong to be alone.  Social stigma has it that if you're alone, you're probably friendless and a loser.  That is just stupid and not being far-sighted.  Remember, only you can be with yourself forever. 

Yet bear in mind while I started off this article claiming people care about others too much nowadays (which really, account for I would estimate at least 90% of the problems that occurs), I have to reinforce that I did not say not to care for anyone else.  There are people whom I would give up things for; and you should have them too.  Just remember that you need to spread your love wisely.

Shoot, score, smile.
