Everyday someone tries to fill your head with it. It is one of the many Cancerous habits that plague most of the worlds collective mind. When you watch the morning news, there will be reports coming in from around the world about it. About babies being born in to it (one of the saddest parts in my opinion). There is advertisements for it.
It is the world of the VIP.
The name it self helps it's cause. Very important people.
What makes these people important.
Preception. The general population "precieves" them as important so they are.
We class them, categories the roles they play on the canvas that is our minds.
Paris, Bruce, Tom & Katie, and of course Regis.
They seem so real. The more real they feel the more they seem important. Regis is being patched up. To many he is an inspiration. He calls into his show that is currently being hosted by and battery of his peers. Other important people who stand behind Regis in his time of need.
What about Kyle? Or Nick?
What about "Old man" Jackson? They had heart problems. The were patched. They did not have a group of peers to carry on their legacy so public opinion did not wane.
They did not have satelight conference calls with work having millions of people come together and well wish. They are important to. In the end when they become plant food they amount to about the same count of energy.
So why do we perceive these people as important. Is the lights? Is it the makeup? I don't think so.
It is completely because we were told they are important.
We were told from an early age. Birth in fact.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Astronaut? Rock Star? Doctor? Sure but it wasn't just a doctor. It was "The doctor".
From your first taste of the humility of being an human and therefore and animal. You need to rise. You need somewhere to go. Where is there to go? If you are talking about being, nowhere. You are already there.
If you talk about ego. There is something you can do. You can have more people identify your ego. The more people who identify with your ego, role. The more the role is solidified.
That role becomes the person and the person is the role. More people everyday consider even unimportant tramps important.
It is not wrong to be entertained by entertainer's entertainment. It is not wrong to View a famous artist's work with reverence.
It is only wrong to be interested because that person has been learned to be important.
Important is perceived. There is nothing more important to me than my family. But that is because they are real real to me, and truly mine.
Next? Role models.
