Oh it does. Emergent systems abound and underlying systems that seem patternless are operating on a different logic that isn’t always at first apparent.
Thank you yes. My intuition I’ve found is strong and I trust it well. It feeds into my reasoning but I don’t let my reasoning overwhelm me; it’s easy to get lost in the Platonic Realm and never get out. Think how many people reason their way to madness, suicide or questionable decision-making?
INFP in those personality test things. I _really_ enjoy going through old writings. Old can be 2 years ago if I don’t remember writing it. Some things feel as if someone else wrote it.
But the patterns are always there. Sometimes I break apart a pattern I think I find, and there’s another pattern underneath it. Haven’t hit bottom – don’t expect to – but I’m enjoying the process tremendously.
I’m uber introspective, always questioning the questioner about his questions, but I don’t usually judge myself bad or good. Rather my focus is on how-can-I-apply-this-for-now.
Reasoning for me has to feed into proacive decision making in the present moment, whether it’s “do I make a pot of coffee now or later?” or “what words can I write right now that will best convey to who I’m writing to the meaning behind what I want to convey?”
So, moment-to-moment. I try to bring everything into it that I can. Going through my own personal history and tying things together has brought me greater certainty in areas I was unsure about – a firmer pile of sand to stand on.
Whether anything I discover turns out to be universal, I don’t know. I can only speak subjectively and _hope_ some things are received-as-intended by me.
ugh, sorry to hear about that. I know what I’d need to do to be publishable and market; I’ve done marketing for others on other projects, including a business I run for my brother here so we can hang on to this silly mortgage – but doing it for myself was always tough.
I can teach, I can do for others, but to do for myself? Never easy for me.
Business dealings are hard. I simply don’t like ‘em. I don’t care for dealing with lawyers or in situations that would require them. I’m sorry you ran into issues and having people with the power to pull strings NOT in your favor has to be heart-wrenching as to the state of humanity as a whole.. or at least bitterly disappointing. Or… perhaps expected and leading to anger. In any case, my heart emoticon goes out to you for having to go through that.
