You talk about randomness, Chinese philosophy and life events, but it is intrinsic in the brain wiring to look for congruence, patterns; a forced alertness is futile. Stupid too.

Futile but inevitable in our attempts.

Forced alertness is merely an annoyance to get me through the day. It's the randomness of congruence and patterness that drive me insane. People think I'm smart, but I think I'm just clever enough to hide how stupid I really am.

Sometimes I wonder if I was born into the wrong generation, but then I think it's just an excuse, for not doing better with my time in the present.

-P back to forced alertness for a job prospect

Patterns. We try to structure chaos. What Gods do. Or at least our brains try. Alertness is natural and necessary for surviving. Artifical alertness is comical or like child's play.

Rain?

Hello austere. Hope all is well with you. Have you been very busy? How are the new specs?

austere said...

proxima- WHOA! well. same boat. but then all one can possibly do is a cognizance of the patterns, work at the awareness. I am an 18th century person, which century are you?

mago- given the too much weight of noise, and chaos. why would you say forced alertness is comical? interesting position.

nein, no rain as yet. humidity is pretty intense, and the waiting is a good teacher. will you pls read the temple piece on new roughpad?

heyhey abbagirl! the specs are good and so am I. I think of you everytime I go to the supermarket and pick up ready to go food, "people, cook!" :)

austere said...

the artist! Thank you for dropping by. Yes, futile, inevitable and like an oxen tied to the plough, repetitive. or like sisyphus but I do not know enough greek classics to be able to comment.
saw your purpleworms blog, will return to read.

While I'll always be considered a barbarian by some, I would have to say the Renaissance of Europe (14th - 17th century). Maybe William Shakespeare would have based a "Midsummer Night's Dream" on my influence. :)
