Sometimes I feel we as humans, live in an extremely dramatic way. For instance, in the animal kingdom, it is either of the three: Love, Kill or Ignore. But we, overflowing in our tons and millions of emotions continue living as though enacting a Shakespearean play on stage. The play of an extremely long duration. Our entire lifetime!
Hardcore tragedies, romantic, out-of-the-ordinary love stories, bone-chilling thrillers, etc. are bound to grab our attention and eyeballs. People notice what is extraordinary. They notice what is weird. They notice what is NOT normal. For a moderate play? A play without any exciting scenarios or a near-attractive storyline? Well, even in the presence of fine artists and actors, the play is good for nothing. It becomes redundant. It loses its charm, its magic. It loses the very base upon which it holds itself upright.
The audience would not even bother to wait till the end of the act. They waste not a minute on the common man, the common stories, the stories that they see everywhere around anyway. Without even paying for it. They do not consider it important enough to be noticed. But should they even? Is it even worth to sacrifice ourselves to mediocrity? I think not.
