Life is an illusion. We’re living in a simulation. We dwell among infinite universes. We know everything. We know nothing.
There’s a constant battle for our minds. Millions of developers plugging code into machines to draw our attention away from our breath and our presence deep into a matrix of consumption and judgment. Thousands of PR firms hard at work to spin lies into alternative facts to drive us mad. Billions of pills pumping out of labs promising us moments of bliss and escape from the cage they’ve locked us in.
Listening to Midnight Climax‘s anxiously addictive industrial techno of the new Psychic Death EP has my mind going everywhere and nowhere at once. This feels like music that’s meant to awaken something in me. The ancient peace of mind that lives in my DNA, the part of me that can’t be triggered by colors and flavors and shame and guilt.
How is it we live in a world where we invite malicious manipulation into our homes every day, knowing that their end goal is for us to hate ourselves so much that we cut our bodies, paint our faces, eat shit, castrate our souls, anesthetize our minds, and destroy our home planet? For someone else’s profit. Absolute fucking insanity.
