how we fool ourselves

11 have you heard of 1

‘You can’t achieve anything deeply satisfying without a drawn-out process leading up to it – and yet process demands a goal.’*

‘Impressions are always incomplete and require a dash of subjectivity to make them whole.’**

‘It’s difficult to tell the difference between what is impossible and what is possible (but requires a big reach).’^

I’m coming closer to the start point of a new future I’ve been moving towards for some time now – this story has been growing and developing for a while, though

From the perspective of the universe, my story is only me fooling myself.  It’s what consciousness requires, some creative subjectivity added to the numb objectivity we find ourselves wrapped up in.

Human consciousness is an interesting phenomenon, mind.  It makes for some amazing lives and some incredible stories.

And we all get an opportunity to join in.
