I don’t care what anyone says, this was fucking funny
There is nothing dehumanizing about being quantified. The aversion to being reduced to "numbers and statistics." is purely the result of old assumptions about what it is to be a person. Just because you can be analyzed and out into numbers doesn't mean your experiences and perspective is less valid. Just because you are the sum of your parts doesn't somehow make that sum less grand. Determinism isn't nearly as bad as you think it is. It's not fatalism, it's just perspective.
