Andy: What's with this world anyway?
I dreamt that my pillow was sucking ideas out of my head! But it obviously didn't get this one. Yesterday I closed my eyes and a tornado of pixels swirled around inside the eyelids. Supposedly these things don't go away. Oh, and I've found out what I want to do with harmony and time, and I can't wait to get it down on paper, or sound recording, or in pictures, or something.

So what's with this world anyway. There are so many ideas waiting to be pondered upon, and many of them are right in front of our faces [metaphysical] but we never see them.

Kind of like you can never know how many ideas you've forgotten [because you've forgotten them] you can never know how many ideas you've yet to ponder. There could be infinite, especially if you keep forgetting them and rediscovering them.

Kind of like rediscovering joy in the world, but not quite. Kind of like becoming a child again with heightened awareness and curiosity, though not exactly. Kind of like reorganizing your brain... putting colors where sounds should be, sounds where memories are, creativity poured over the whole damn thing, and a cherry of originality on top.

I am not a relativist, nor an absolutist... I'm just kind of me, searching for truth in life whatever that is. Kind of like merging all knowledge into a single kernal of understanding, but not like Eastern philosophy.

Try to debate the very foundation of logic. Try to think of everything as infinitely many things, as two big things physical and metaphysical, as one giant thing, and as nothing. All at the same time.

Mood: Try to remember the last thing you forgot.

if it's forgotten, then when you remember it, wouldn't it be like figuring it out for the first time? you mentioned above that one could forget and rediscover things infinitely. that's a lot of forgetting..and remembering.

can i eat (figuratively, of course) that cherry of originality? :P

i have lots of ideas, but i never do anything with them. then someone else just comes up with it. maybe we're all pulling from the same pool of ideas, and when we don't do anything with one specific idea, it falls back in, and someone else picks it out....

That might be true - they say that people statistically score higher on the NYTimes crossword the day after, and they say it's because the answers are "already out there." But I think that idea's bunk. If we had telecommunicative powers... the world would be a different place than it is now. No you can't eat my cherry. Of course it'd be a lot of forgetting and remembering, but how could you know it's going on?

i'm not saying that it's telecommunicative, i'm saying that all the ideas that are possible are just out there, and when one person discovers/finds one, if they don't do anything with it, someone else is inevitably bound to find it, and then actually do something with it.

i can't eat your cherry?!??!? *sigh* oooookkkkk...

there is nothing new under the sun. we're standing, not on the shoulders of giants, but on top of a semi-human pyramid of poop slingers. people are beginning to look more and more like apes to me. When I look into the mirror I see my brow-ridge getting larger.

that might be a medical condition that you should have checked out...
