Consider the situation where we all are in a zeitgeist/gestalt
and limited by certain modalities of thought. What is unthinkable
may be of tremendous value, but our mental modality renders us
incapable of conceptualizing it. What is on our media feed and
our friend feeds regulates what we think thoughts can be, can
work themselves. This, perhaps, is why people on the fringes of
society, undersocialized, act strange: they think things we are
incapable of by our socialization.

I randomly subscribe to people if I think we might have something
in common, or they seem to be interesting. Don't worry, I won't
involve you in dramas if you read my journal. Please feel free to
friend me as well! I always love talking with people. The things
that get sparked when people are talking can be so wonderful.

;; Quotes to meditate on.
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men"
--- Luke 2:14

"Thus the layers of abstraction become boundaries of competence."
--- M.Laphroaig, Phrack 68

"We need to teach our kids that it’s not just the winner of the
Super Bowl who deserves to be celebrated, but the winner of the
science fair; that success is not a function of fame or PR, but
of hard work and discipline."
---Barack Obama, SoTU 2011
