It also reminded me that it's been a while since I've really had meaningful theoretical discourse on the philosophical elements of consciousness and reality and fun crap like that. I suppose that a lot of it is that I've been bogged down with some of the more meatlike aspects of my life (like strippers and their asses), and another part is that I've been kind of removed from the life of academia for far too long.
I miss it.
Hell, I can talk code and analysis theory all day long, but it's not really engaging, you know? I can talk about lighting theory and visual texture and filmic concepts. I can talk about electrical codes and plumbing, thermodynamics and quantum mechanics (well, okay, I can only make jokes about quantum mechanics, but you get the idea).
But I really haven't been. I've been spending a lot of time talking about meat-puppetry, and becoming so self involved I think my navel has a permanent head-shaped dent.
(Edit: Ohmigod, it actually </i>does</i>!)
I need more balance. I have been neglecting parts of myself for far too long.
Maybe I should start keeping an index:
Yeah, the spirituality side of things has long been neglected, too.
On a totally unrelated note, I've been seeing a lot of divisiveness among some of my friends. What the hell is happening up there?
