What’s behind your eyes?

How do you know that you are behind your eyes? We see through them, and believe our brains house our consciousness, but we have no idea.

Does our consciousness envelope the entire universe, interconnected with the consciousness of others? Or is it one consciousness, many faces?

I’m sorry, but I only have questions today.

Mediocre Shit

The bane of doing one thing well is giving in to the temptation of doing many things mediocre. But why do we give in? I have some ideas:

  • Lack of solidified vision.
  • Lack of placing importance on the one thing, which can act as a launch pad for future endeavors and focuses.

That’s it.

Consider this a callout for you to hone in on the one thing and knock off all that other mediocre shit.

Forecast, duality, kill the king, embrace the philosopher.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, I cannot write freely at my IRL business without a negative impact. It seems people do not want to think, they want to do what feels good in the moment, they want to be lied to, to attach themselves to a fad for a time.

This breaks my heart, as I see the value in detaching from myself to see how I’m lying to myself, and how I’m being lied to. This ties in with fitness and training very well: science and reality go together, it’s us that needs to align with reality. Wasn’t in Feynman that said we must not fool ourselves, and we are the easiest ones to fool?

Either way, I will not abandon but search further. There is a connection somewhere that explains what’s going on. I come back to Taleb’s thoughts on “King first, philosopher second.” Mike will be the king, ThinkySpaceMan will be the philosopher. I cannot keep myself from it.

We will see how this duality plays out.

Forecast: It goes well.

Sandbox

Over the past year or so I’ve come to realize that I need to write in my own domain that doesn’t have a specific agenda. It needs to be a sandbox where there are no rules, and I am free to build, be sloppy, get dirty, and conduct micro experiments.

I tried having my own blog on my business website, but my business solves a problem for others and is not a platform for me to ‘get dirty’.

Here, I am free to abandon the delete button and go out on a limb. It’s safe, because it’s not high up.

A successful business is not an incubator for growth. Keep them separate. Unfortunately I had to learn this the hard way.
