Defying the Babylon Matrix – Card #433 – Zap Oracle

Summon your will to defy the Babylon Matrix. The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. -- G.B. Shaw, Man and Superman, 1903 Be a mutant, be unreasonable. But being unreasonable is not a license to act out every caprice. Many confuse the pre-conventional with the post-conventional. For example, many think they are being rebels by being promiscuous, intoxicated, irresponsible. But this is pre-conventional, it is even more primitive than the conventional and it certainly doesn't transcend the conventional. Infantile unreasonableness is not to be confused with mutant unreasonableness. Deviate from the program, but by being more life-affirming and more evolved than what the matrix expects you to be.
