The Orville: When Cancel Culture Has Gone Too Far
We are all aware of and maybe even joined in on cancel culture. Everyday people post about consumer items, businesses, their hobbies, and their own personal thoughts and feelings on the internet. We are bombarded with social ideas and mannerisms that blatantly say whether they are good or bad. No one needs to really think about anything anymore because social media and other media sources pretty much does that for you. Do you want to know how to bake a cake? Google it. Do you want to know what style of clothing you should wear? Again, Google it. It's all right there for you. You don't have to think at all. As of 2021, what happens if someone posts or even created a product that does not express the exact social ideas and mannerisms that the internet has labeled for us as acceptable? We the people go out and get rid of it with any means possible. We might write nasty comments to whoever the perpetrator is. We might call the perpetrator's place of business to get them fired. Basically we cancel them. It doesn't even matter when the unacceptable behavior happened. It could of happened 50 years ago and they still get canceled. This is all normal to us now. As a collective whole, we don't want to see anything that may be deemed bad. We want to make all bad things disappear. This all sounds great. Who wouldn't want to get rid of all the horrible people and companies out there? At the same time is there such a thing as going too far with cancel culture? The science fiction series the Orville's seventh episode Majority Rule depicts a 21st century Earth like society where cancel culture and social justice completely dominates their way of life. You thought losing your job and being socially ostracized from society was bad. What if you lived in a world where the punishment for being canceled was a full on lobotomy.

Lucky Number 13
Ever since I was little, 13 has been my favorite number. Whenever I had to choose a number for something, I would always choose 13. It was my personal go to number. For some reason I would always gravitate to the number 13 even before I learned about it being known as an unlucky number. I never understood why people see the number 13 and even Friday the 13th as something to fear. It wasn’t until after college that I looked more into numerology. A lot of the meaning behind numbers and simple vortex math really interested me. It actually made me regret not taking more math classes. Even though I did enjoy math as a kid, I never saw a need for me to learn further than high school calculus. Through basic numerology, I learned that 13 really isn’t a number to fear and avoid. Thirteen is actually a good number.
Musical Vibrations as Medicine
In today’s society, we are all familiar with the mainstream modern medicine used today. When we’re sick we take drugs produced by pharmaceutical companies. In more drastic cases we need a surgeon to cut through our skin and fix us from the inside. We do these things because we have been taught that these are the best ways to fix a person who is unwell. What if I told you that sound and vibrations at the right frequency could also be used to help heal the body? It sounds absolutely crazy right? This idea wasn’t so crazy to great minds like Pythagoras and Nikola Tesla.
