It's what some might call a breakdown, but i prefer to call it ENLIGHTENMENT. Basically when your brain has reached capacity levels and is working on insufficent sleep and poor nutrition. The levels of SS are off the chart. Due to the inability to process information i will leave you with this: Socrates said, "the unexamined human life is not worth living." In response to that question i ask this: Wouldn't we be better off if we couldn't examine our lives so much? Ignorance is bliss.

I've decided to get a hippo for a pet. It has always been considered hot to have exotic pets. A hippo I imagine is at the top of the list. What if i were to get a mini hippo that wouldn't grow to be very big? Put him in the backyard with a pool and some hippo stuff. Then i thought... i might need some friends for him. Other hippos would be too much of a liability for a suburban neighborhood, what i need are compatible birds and monkeys. So now i just have to find a place where i can get a hippo or maybe i should lease one first...? i'll check into that and let you know what info comes up.

As a continuation of yesterday’s post I am posed to tackle understanding. One of the most rewarding experiences is meeting someone with whom we immediately feel comfortable. We can tell that there is a connection. Alternatively, there is the frustration of knowing someone for years and never quite reaching an understanding with them. Somehow in the intricacies of our minds with all the oddity and unique ways of bringing information together we are able to understand other people. Different parts of our minds match with certain people and they make complete sense when they talk or share an idea. We all have a million different parts in our brain that only match up with other people that have those same parts and the more parts that match the more understanding we can achieve with that person. These are the times when we can see eye to eye on some things and we are able to transfer that understanding to other situations where our brains don’t match so well. This is how people come to compromise and make decisions as a group. Sometimes we don’t have any common ground to work from, we don’t understand each other from the bottom up. Nothing matches in our heads. The result can be fatal. Diplomacy is many brains somewhat matching, the failure of that process usually puts in a situation where violence is the only common language. War.

It's not really a condition but more of a submission. You wonder why your brain doesn't work "right". Maybe you are fortunate enough to know that there is no such thing as a correct mode of functioning for the human brain. Each one analyzes and synthesizes in a completely unique way. Which brings us to the next obstacle... understanding. If we all have a specific and unique way of thinking how do we ever reach an understanding of one another... and even more difficult how do we come to make decisions together or compromise?
