    we must be exceptional but on some completely meaningless bullshit trajectory (I mean if we were trying to be so in career that would be mainstream, and well it's not exceptional to just try to be a good person, no it must be something very far detached from anything that anyone else cares about) or we are basic.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I find the whole idea that some people are basic ridiculous.

    I am thinking basic means ordinary. It's not the usual but I relish being ordinary these days.

    A bit basic, is it?

    One might say basic-ness is subjective. But could it be that through our mutual cultural lens we could deem certain types of people as basic?
    This is a question I asking. Though I would not say I have an answer.

    I dispute this. A half-human and half Vulcan living and working on the Starship Enterprise is far from basic.

    Excellent insight. I agree with this assertion.
