When the main source of contention gets eliminated and the contention still persists without any viable notion, how much a logical person is going to engage in that loop of incongruent predicaments rotating just to prove some sort of superiority complex??
The answers may vary according to the level of consciousness one has reached. Some people move one step back to get themselves out of that abyss of illusions and put their best foot forward in something of value in real life, whereas some people stay stuck in that loop, hence mediocrity. Choose to be the former, my friend, out of mediocrity.
