It's been said that indifference is worse than hatred. I tend to agree.
But indifference can be approached another way. Indifference can be used to describe the zen-like state of egolessness. Egolessness - is that even a word?
We, as humans, tend to care too much or not at all. This is such polarizing behavior that it is possibly damaging to us. If we were to try to change and become more (positively) indifferent, would it be a good thing? Or would we be going against our true nature?
It's hard to say. We can't divorce ourselves from our culture. To pretend that we are actually individuals is perpetuating a myth.
