Destruction for Difference

Individualism is not building-up-towards or revealing-the-self, but destruction of the common, which translates as novel difference.

The seduction of new knowledge is arcane insights, which dissolves social norms for self separation. The knowledge -an alchemical agent for change- need not be new, merely distinct.

(Those who do not destroy the common are conformists, hence not individuals in this sense.)
