The Beauty of Being Bizarre

In the learning section of Canva Editing Software, there's a Para written "Weirdos can do great things. They create disruptive companies, build new technologies, start movements and encourage people to think differently. If weirdos didn't exist to challenge the status quo, all of the amazing advancements of our generation would not exist."

This technically is correct because just being Bizarre with your actions and mindset doesn't mean you are a danger to society (Well of course until and unless you don't harm anyone).

The unexpected benefits of turning bizarre

Despite being the greatest and most influential mind in human history, Isaac Newton, by all accounts, was a bit of a headcase,1 as well as a total dick. Newton was famously petty and vindictive. He would go through manic episodes where he would work furiously for days at a time without eating or sleeping. Afterwards, he would fall into deep depressions, refuse to see or speak to anyone, and often contemplated suicide. During these darkest episodes, Newton would often have hallucinations and speak to imaginary people. Kind of like a four-year-old.

Nikola Tesla churned out over 200 inventions in his lifetime, including the first prototype of an electric motor, the first remote control, and helped to invent X-ray photography. He invented a more efficient form of electricity than Edison, which prompted Edison to go full-asshole and attempt to destroy Tesla’s career.

What’s lesser-known is that Tesla had an intense phobia of dirt and germs and a curious obsession with doing everything in multiples of three. He would compulsively calculate everything in his immediate environment, like how many cubic centimetres of food he was about to eat or how many meters he was going to walk to the toilet. He spent years living in hotels without ever paying his bills. He, like Newton, also reported blinding visions and hallucinations in some of his most intensely creative periods.

The Roman philosopher Seneca once said, “There is no great genius without a tincture of madness.” Mental illness may push some people to the extremes of creativity or discovery, for the majority of people, it sucks. Compared to “normal” people (as if “normal” even exists), people with mental illnesses have more chronic physical health problems, have difficulty forming and maintaining relationships, earn less money, and live shorter lives.

Beauty of craziness

Well if I go with the real meaning of who is Bizarre? The answer is simple: one who fails to understand what society and its norms are or someone who is not accepted by society.

This might be a controversial line but not getting along with society and its norms instead of living on your own terms and I guess this becomes the beauty of Being bizarre. Nikolas Tesla at one point in time was not accepted by society but now after many decades later we actually preach his doings. Is this not the beauty? Yes, it is or not I can't comment on that but still...


In conclusion, I shall say being crazy doing weird things and stuff does not always mean we should take it in a negative way there are various aspects which we should take into consideration. It might be someone who lives in your society who doesn't speak or act or doing weird stuff much but nobody knows except for him what is happening in his mind. It might be the next big thing that might revolutionize the whole world?
