Hello everyone! I am not sure if this is the right section to post this, which is why I contacted a mod about me creating it here. It seems like fiction, but in a way I think it is not. Anyways here we go.
Have you ever noticed how grammer changes with time? This is important because as grammer changes, new students who study the same thing will write differently, authors have different writing styles as well, so it doesn't seem like a problem.
However; and this is one of my pet peeves that makes me sad; haven't you noticed the direct plagiarism of ideas? Lets say 10000 students need to write a paper on shakespeare, and it is still studied in college by the way. There are bound to be some similarities in idea even if the grammer is different. During school many topics are repeated and repeated over and over again, and usually they are old topics. I feel angered that with so much already written there are similar ideas. Like if someone writes about the beach and you find 10 essays/or peices of writing that have the same idea. It has been so many years that we are running out of originality; unavoidably.
My only solution would be to study things like shakespeare casually, and write essays on other popular things which have not been spoken about before. For example an essay on Britney Spears, or on youtube, or on newgrounds (please note I am not using urls and therefore not advertising) Essays about voice acting, or music in general, essays about animations and animating, about alcohol, or nicotine, although these two last ones have had some recognition.
In my opinion if you stick to the old things, you tend to lose reality in the real world, on things which should very much be studied, like money for example, or the workforce, etc etc.
Tell me your thoughts on this, and how we could save writing.

Question: Does (or can) originality actually exist? Or are we always inspired by what we perceive to be reality?
Well someone had to make shit up in the first place. At some point, there was zero human culture or knowledge. But yeah, probably like 97% (made that up) of what we think/see is very heavily influenced by the goings on around us
I'm am against turning celebrities into college course material. It's annoying enough that they're celebrities.
