Thursday, August 20 of 2020, 30 minutes past midnight. I often joke about forgetting the reasons or motivations for my creativity, but my current inability to compose long, coherente passages is a reflection of a personal pathology I need to address now. It's an invisible affliction caused by poor focus on me and the meditations [...]
Belief and acceptance are different attitudes. Some humans say that "they don't believe in the Theory of Evolution" because they feel their personal beliefs are of consequence to the Theory - they aren't.
