What is “Normal”?

What is “normal”? Have you ever stopped to think how your own prejudices define how you see the world at large, and how you define others. Just because someone does something differently to you, doesn’t make them ‘abnormal’ or ‘weird’. They aren’t ‘lesser’ than you because they don’t meet your standards.
The ego, of course, likes to think so!
In the video below, renowned physician and best-selling author Gabor Maté shares his knowledge and wisdom on this important yet immensely complex issue. He astutely points out that the concept of “normal” is actually just a myth or an artificial mental construct, while revealing how mental distress and pathology are mainly a consequence of our modern day materialistic, consumption-driven, soul-sucking culture.

An interesting question I would rather not have explained nor entertain in real live time with actual sticks and mud. However I will just add, what?

Worse then that is looking into a vacuum and thinking you know nothing

Usually if some one says you are not normal they want to sell you something that will make you normal, or take something from you that will make you normal.

Nope.
I let the actions I see others make in my life to determine if they have any value in my life or they are undesirables who should be given a wide birth. I put my two older brothers in that category and there is a long list of how they put themselves there rather than I invented shit.

If you can watch an hour of TV you can eat dog poop.

You can buy normal theropy that might help you however with reintroduction to reality, relocation to Nova Scotia will do it oganically within one year or your money back, I am unable to link you our broucher at this time

How long do the normal live and why would or should we consider them in the serious conduct of this planet. Why not keep direct there hahahah progress through the process

God always has the best definition. Not a sermon just love the wording and how true it is in this day and age. I would like to call Judge Goldstone to the stand to very it is still the norm for one group.

Joh:12:42:
Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him;
but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him,
lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

One thing can be certain, it will be a lie, big or little it will contain that element. The truth is based on facts and facts stack themselves up so when one part is looked at it leads to another fact. Lies, on the other hand, tend to want to be repeated just once and no follow-ups as there is no script.

The Rothschild Money Tree runs no mater who the politicians are. NATO is arming up to save the French speaking part of Belgium. The French are famous, or rather infamous, for surrendering and no sabotage after. Why ruin 'your city' when you own both combatants. Waterloo would be a prize-fighter throwing a fight just so their partner could take advantage of the shock move. The Rothschild Banks gained control of the English Stock Market (they probably started it too and it would have been manipulated just like the US was after 1913 and the creation of the FED. Not so odd America had disasters happen every 7 years, like clockwork. The Bank Of England also fell that same day in case you wonder how big the prize really was. It wasn't that long ago and the 7 year pattern might have been put in use back then. Financial hardships are their trademark so that is where you look for tracks/fingerprints. If somebody knew there was 1 Jewish person in a survey taken around 1900 then the rest of their data should be considered to be accurate during it's forensic examination. Digital footprints can be searched in milliseconds. If it was the Warsaw Memos then we would be looking at decades just to digitize it so it could be searched properly. This is a few headlines per day over a few years.

Why make it a lie? Take then to the nearest Rez and tell them we will do the same to them if they piss us off. Wow, I like that plan which add a lot a scary shit to the mix.

So the lesson would have been there is a new normal every decade or so. In reality how long does a trend 'normally last? Clock is ticking on this one.

Normal= is retarded, you are unique and there's nothing normal about you really you're the one on the one for the first time and there will never be another, have some fun while you're here, pay your taxes obey the law where convienient and eat better food, hug the sun every day , use drugs if you feel like it helps, that's why we have them, I suppose, hang in there your're not insane

You don't all have the same phone numbers do you? Forget normal just be nice. It's easy, have a beer, enjoy the summer, it may be short and or strange this year.

Fighting will set you free, but you have to be nice about it, there's no sence in breaking arms when you can render them helpless with humour, duck and repeat untill they smile, strangle only as a last resort or when theynear the beer unauthorized

Last month, I was short at the Tim Horton's Drive-Thru and the cashier gave me my coffee anyways. I returned later with the correct amount and a Lotto 6/49 ticket for her.

That's my kinda normal. A good deed inspiring another good deed.

I was at a Wedding where the MC announced that there was a Porshe in the parking lot with it's lights on. Every guy in the room, including me stood up and grabbed their keys as if to go outside. It was very funny. The whole room burst into laughter.

Normal is what a society decides is normal for itself. It is the mores, morals and ethics of a society. Which means normal can only be defined in the present because what's normal continually evolves. That is also why it's such a silly emotional mistake to judge historical events with a 21st century mind set.
