Always, no, sometimes think it’s me
But you know I know when it’s a dream
I think, er, no, I mean, er, yes
But it’s all wrong
That is I think I disagree
Of course we create our own reality but we don’t actually create our own reality.
—— Ken Wilber (paraphrased)
Is the answer in here somewhere?
I have a friend who has been working on his PHD in philosophy for as long as I’ve known him.
As far as I know, he has yet to finish.
Perhaps this is a good thing.
Perhaps this has something to do with ayahuasca.
The other day, I was talking with a woman who did get her PHD in psychology.
She asked if I thought prostate cancer might have something to do with circumcision.
I told her that my father had not been circumcised.
Later in the conversation this woman suggested that choice may not be a factor in human behavior.
I suggested she read something by Brian Greene.
Or perhaps just listen here.
Earlier today my sweetheart reminded me to never allow my love for her to become an abstraction based only on desire.
This is yet another affirmation of how good we are for each other.
I love you my darling.
This is real.
