Through 'confrontational' simulations, we understand James A. Garfield's realization that ‘the truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.”
A “stylish specimen” expands their spiritual outlook to embrace aesthetics and appearances. Realising that divinity also lives in the material world. All after confronting ‘types’ of people that was pissing them off.
The physical world aggravated me. Muscles, fashion, engines. Botox, implants, plastic. Less so what others possessed and more so that if I got stuck in that vortex, I'd lose my spiritual self. The problem was I could not avoid the physical realm. My spirit suffered the longer I resisted. And if I am honest, my somewhat sloppy aesthetic mirrored confusion within. It was time for a change. I threw out my old clothes. I shaved my head. I turn my showers cold. Returning to the body as if coming home. Physical appearances, a path to enlightenment. I'm in Japan now. A long while after my wake-up call. My body is firm and fierce. My face is clean and crisp. Getting garments tailored by the best craftsmen in the world. A stylish specimen is who I was born to be. Lean and light. Dripped and dashing. Spiritually at home in a material world.
