I tend to stay in the ambiguous zone visually, which is not a pleasant place to be in. A bit skeptical of what I see far too much of the time. It’s really a waste of cognitive resources as I have to consciously ignore ambiguity and “choose”. Waste of an extra moment or two far too much in the day. Might be ADHD related, I don’t know. There’s a Bayesian-based theory about ADHD having something to with the error rate in the current moment is SO overwhelming that it overwhelms whatever influence the PRIORS might have, making the kind of incremental Bayesian learning very difficult, forcing them to rely on other means that are a little more conscious and less efficient.

[The following came out first before I remembered that this was my ADHD and that it’s socially inappropriate yet am still compelled to share. You can ignore] [I wrote the following FIRST before remembering that a trait of ADHD is sharing ANECDOTES that seem to hijack conversations but whose intention is showing “I understand and this is why”. I’m usually not aware I do this. This time I noticed it before pressing ‘send’ yet I can’t seem to delete it as the compulsion to share is very important] Speaker of the Dead. As a boy, I enjoyed Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. I struggled through the next book and the one that’d followed I didn’t bother with at all. But I liked Ender’s Game. I did not find out about Orson Scott Card’s awful political views until later on and was disappointed. But I’d rather know. Long prior to that revelation, Ender’s Game was the catalyst for a few ongoing themes of interest of mine, one of which was this notion of the “Speaker of the Dead”. And I loved and still love the notion of an honest assessment. This line: “Sometimes lies were more dependable than the truth.” — Ender Wiggin (Ender’s Game) rings true repeatedly in many different situations. There are times that I prefer the lies. But I am generally aware of when I am choosing and preferring the lies and I will say so and take what comes from that when it happens. But I
