Everything about Normal Series Explained
Normal is a word that seems so simple and yet is so complex, definition wise it has two fundamental meanings, its adjective meaning is to conform to a standard, its noun meaning is an expected state. For example, it is normal for a person to wear clothes when outdoors (conformity), and the normal temperature of a human is 37°C (expected state).
But everybody knows that normal has another meaning, and that meaning comes from the question: what does it mean to be “normal?” Note the quotes around the word, that’s because normal and “normal” are two very different things.
The meaning of normal is in the dictionary, the meaning of “normal” is so complex that no dictionary is big enough to contain it.

With that said, this series of posts is going to focus on everything normal, from what is normal human behaviour, to who defines what is normal, to the definition of normal, to what is the present day normal, to how to change what is normal and much more.
