Departure from the Mean

I am now seeing a social trend unfolding around me. If Renaissance made individuals important, people are now acting less like other people around them. I predict that we will see more identities and concepts that we don’t yet have words for emerge, until there are too much for the average person to hold all the concepts in their head. Population will be more diverse (diverge from each other). Grammar will matter less. Instead of “what people do and achieve”, “what people are” will be the meaning of life for more people.

For lack of a better phrase, I’ll call this “(Great) Departure from the Mean”. Let history tell the rest.
