There are two commonly employed initial approaches:
“I want to feel better,” or,
”I want to understand,”
but it eventually comes down to this:
“I want to understand why I don’t feel better.”
The beings on Planet X have the X faculty – which is the greatest thing that ever happened to them. It is also the most frustrating; and the most annoying; and the most confusing. Yet without it, they would have never realized when they were frustrated, annoyed and confused.
Temperament and mind; hormones and neurons; horses and saddles; herds and individual yards; passions and purpose, and passion with no visible target. You either hear clear through the collective-reality-din, or else the cacophony of mass mooing will keep you, forever, distracted and distraught.
“Forever is a long time!”
“Not as long as mind, though.”
A man can outlive everything except his mental concept of an end. Immature thinking persists in believing that it came from somewhere, and thus must be going someplace. Slides and merry-go-rounds to pacify children. (Up, down – round-and-round.)
