mind expanding nonsense

My Last Drawings

I never really finished filling up the pages on this one.  That’s because when I started blogging again, I totally stopped drawing.  It’s hard to do both.  Drawing is a non-verbal right side of the brain activity, while blogging (writing stuff) is a very verbal left side of the brain activity that requires paying attention.  Unlike politics, both sides of my brain are good and come in handy.  I do, however prefer the right side (brain only), for my internal dialogue resides on the left side of my brain.  Sometimes I try to get into a conversation with my internal dialogue, but he usually hogs the conversation.  When he isn’t, we’re often having arguments about shit that’s happened in the past or sharing scenarios of doom in the future.

 

The two sides of ones brain are not separated by some kind of impenetrable wall like the one we’re gonna have between us and Mexico (which they are gonna pay for).  There’s a lot of seepage (like our present chain-link fence) between the two.  That’s why I find it best to live in the present moment.  Unfortunately, my present moment typically consists of daydreaming about stuff I’d like to do in the future or re-living incidents in the past.  Mindfulness allows one to hear their inner dialogue, but not listen to it.  Mindlessness sucks ya into the dialogue, with the false hope that a sound logical argument could change its mind.

  1. May I quote your last line? Brilliant observation.

  2. There is an actual case of a split brain patient who, when responding with one half was a believer in god, but when responding with the other was an atheist. The question was raised: which part goes to heaven?

    True story. i’ll find the video if you like.
