One of the manifestations of depression for me is that I lose my will. And I thereby lose my ability to focus. I don’t think I’ll ever have the day-to-day consistency in my performance that something like This American Life has. If I’m not depressed and I’m on and I can focus and I can think through something hard and without interruption and without existential emptiness that comes from depression, that gives me – not mania. But I exalt. I exalt in not being depressed.

Let’s stop pretending to know why we do it ( or even most of the time how)

How do we do it?

Creating identities, communities, and building worlds. Western cartoons show cognitive processes like computers, like filing cabinets, or maybe more like halls where doors open to perfectly preserved memories. Everything in it’s place, ordered and legible and rational.

This is how I see it: Inputs of words and environment form imperfect metaphors into imbricated ideals. My world and I becamebecomebecoming who I wasamwillbe.

Concept hodgehodge snowballs pick up new layers as they tumble between our bodies carried by too many atoms to count through the sieve of our senses to our brains.Transmuted, transmute, transmuting our signage always imperfectly, but hopefully functionally. Can we count the number of steps it takes to become(,) together?

We no longer debate opinions of facts, some say, now we dispute the facts themselves. Racism is not an issue, they need to feel our ultimate truth, we are the saviors who will enlighten the world, corporations are people, social structures are rigid with inherent meaning… Perpetuation of inflexible mirages promotes stability and control but breeds unforseeable instability. So let’s remember the warning: here there be monsters. We will never know wherewhenhow they might disrupt placid waters.

I am so excited for my Sherlock teas to get here. Mostly for the gingery Moriarty blend yesyesyes. I think I may have lost my mind and now my bank account suffers for it.

Fittingly ridiculous.

Mitt and Newt should team up to fund Newt’s moon state plan at the expense of everything else.
