Normal

Sometimes here in the cube we are faced with new experiences, new cultures, different things. There are two ways we can respond to this.

The first way is that we see the otherness and we label it as ‘abnormal’. We are normal, therefore, people who do things differently are abnormal. Abnormality needs to be corrected. Abnormality needs to be made normal.

The second way to deal with it is to look at our own practices, look at the things we do and consider that perhaps, we are just as abnormal as everyone else. Perhaps, our ways are strange and odd. And perhaps, the way to deal with abnormality is to accept it. To accept that different people have different ways of dealing with things and that difference is not always bad.
