Getting loose with lines

β€œSuccess is dangerous. One begins to copy oneself, and to copy oneself is more dangerous than to copy others. It leads to sterility.”

Picasso

Verily, I had reached sterility. A bolt of lightning through my core was required to wake me up from the mundane, from the superficiality of modernity. This project began a new era for me. A new way of thinking. A freer sensibility, unshackled from the self inflicted invisible restraints.

Being roughly 98% Chimp, we humans are genetically closer to Chimps than the Chimp is to the Gorilla. Primates represent Sapien's base level, so I began here.


obliviouschimp mission
We chimps went from squabbling in the dirt, to sending rockets into space because a small few pushed the limits of our potential. A small few rejected arrogance, and delusion from misinformation. A small few embraced ignorance as their baseline, with the aim of becoming a little less dumb, not more smarterer. For the next small few who dream among the stars, this oblivious chimp creates for you.
Without getting too serious of course!
