Fellow miscreants, take heart: the internet is the perfect haven for our kind.
The sheer diversity of souls who have access to a portal on the world is phenomenal. And a small but influential proportion of them are going to be deviants, weirdos, renegades.
miscreant (mis-kri-uhnt) Origin: Old French: "disbelieving" (Oxford Dictionary of Current English)
My kind of people. We don't just think outside the box; for us, the box doesn't exist, it's a collective hallucination, a phantasm--you wave your hand and it passes through what turns out to be a clever projection.
Consensual reality? Don't make me laugh. Take a good look at the Philip K. Dick quote in the header box (above). That says it all.
Miscreants, by nature, are loners but it's still a comfort to know there are others out there--stubborn, cynical, irate, hysterical with laughter--who share our determination to see the universe with the doors of perception wide open.
We seek each other without looking and find one another thanks to the subtlest signs.
Nodding to a brother/sister on the street, in a busy mall, recognizing them by a certain light in their eyes.
