What kind of attitude do you want to take towards the world?

If you want to put the world down, you say, “Oh, well, fundamentally it is just a lot of geology, it is a stupidity, and it so happens that a kind of freak came up which we call consciousness.” This is an attitude you can take if you want to prove to people that you are a tough thinker, that you are realistic, that you face facts and do not indulge in wishful thinking. This is just a matter of role playing, and you must be aware of it. There are fashions in the intellectual world.
