On Being Patient #6: A Philosopher's Progress: (dis)Organization
June 13, 2009 [listen]
This is the first time I can recall my head crawling inside
my psyche. In my opinion, I am slowly and surely progressing
by accentuating the toll common experiences take on my intellect,
motor skills, and cognitive/behavioral instincts.
Tracking these experiences, for me, have become an intellectual
evaluation. To take pause is to contemplate--especially
when the topic is blank: distracted by an abstraction
in zooming detail; memory remade from a ready-made in reality,
totally based on experiences, actual (and speculated).
When monitoring my motor skills, bodily ditzies ranging
from external clumsiness to internal double-intakes, have
become a feat on fatigue: involuntary pings and pangs, timing
and placing the mechanics and mechanisms in a set psychology.
Getting a grip, bursting out--I reflect upon my psychology
both cognitive and behavioral: a loggerhead's tolerance;
the focus and comprehension of mythology, the demystification
of fact and fiction, the saging of a saga as a means of
I test my limits, noting reaction (time) and (method of)
response. Are these limits my normalized domain? What has
diminished; what has been enhanced?
I take pause detailing these abstract limitations, compose
a theory, and apply the theory to my psyche.
