It's cold and rainy here today, and better for neuros like me. Saturday it was 92° and I hid out with the blinds closed all day, until I decided to open the windows at around 5:30 -- too early.
I've always wondered about the black/white mentality, and wondered if it has been influenced at all by the way travel has developed. That is, if you use a road, or tracks, you have a definite left side and a right side -- as opposed to riding or walking, which is usually just going wherever looks easiest or nicest. I think if you ride/walk you have a more unified view of the world. I'm not very good at relating my thoughts. But anyway, I think many people nowadays don't realise they have this split vision of the world because they've always traveled by road, sidewalk, tracks -- anything that seeks to make order out of the human need to get somewhere. And roads are so huge, long, and straight they can divide the world from horizon to horizon.
