deliberately irrelevant...

"Are monastics and hippies and poets relevant? 
No, we’re deliberately irrelevant.
 We live with an ingrained irrelevance 
which is proper to every human being. 
The marginal person accepts the basic irrelevance 
of the human condition, 
an irrelevance 
which is manifested above all by the fact of death."
~Thomas Merton
