“When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world, try not to bash into the walls too much, try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. But that’s a very limited life. Life can be much boarded, once you discover one simple fact, and that is, everything around that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you.
And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. The minute that you understand that you can poke life and if you push in, something will pop out the other side, that you can change it, that you can mold it, that’s maybe the most important thing, is to shake off this erroneous notion, that life is there and you’re just going to live in it.
Versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark on it… however you learn that, once you learn it, you’ll want to change life and make it better because it’s messed up in a lot of ways. Once you learn that you’ll never be the same again.”
