Description
A madman is one who believes himself to be normal. I recognize that I am not normal and in the past, this made me feel as if it was me that is the madman. But G.K. Chesterton begs to differ in his book Orthodoxy. A Man Without a Human Head is a journey where I begin to open up my imagination. It is my recognition that we are relying far too much on our logic. We, as a society, see ourselves as normal, but really, we are strange, we are mad, and we are fucked up. People are putting on human heads and it has become completely normal. "A man who thinks himself as a chicken," Chesterton wrote, "is to himself as ordinary as a chicken. A man who thinks he is a bit of glass is to himself as dull as a bit of glass. It is the homogeneity of his mind which makes him dull, and which makes him mad." This is a form of self-realization and discovery.
