Look to your left and off to the distance through whatever object seem to be in your way to the ends of the Universe until it curves around and you’re going through the back of your head, through the other eye for one more trip around the Universe. Then look back here and write a few words. Takes about 2 seconds. Awesome trip.

1=believe 0=wonder -1=disbelieve When I woke up this morning, my dream ended with Rebecca Patricia Roybal seeing my post about that from the other day and commenting. In the comment was something like, “yes, but according to ‘0 is inertia and means you gave up trying’ by Vishvakarma Markendaya, by not leaning towards belief or disbelief during the process of truth discovery, not only have you given up trying, but you are actively hindering those on the search path by not providing any partial confirmation or partial challenge, leading to a cascade effect of apathy. Instead, an activist stance of some kind, subject to change of belief when encountering relevant and irrelevant evidence in an active truth pursuit, you continually defeat “apathy by inertia” for even if you disbelieve when you should believe or disbelieve when you should believe, at least you are a changeable part of the global neural network of people discussing critical issues. Disbelief is belief of belief and belief is disbelief of disbelief!” I replied “woah!”, clicked Like, woke up, made a cup of coffee. Not long after I wrote this message which I’m concluding now.

The body is a system of systems. It is a system of systems that “gravitates ” towards homeostasis. Like other physical systems, the parts of each systems in the body are at a state of potential and kinetic energies That is, they are storing and utilizing work. Sometimes like a compressed spring, other times like a spring that’s been let go and moves. You eat food that you measured in many ways but one way it’s measured as calories. Calories are a measure of heat generating potential. A cupcake has a lot of heat generating potential. So does fatty things. Meat-like things have 1/2 as much work potential as sugar or fat, but they perform rebuilding work in the body through chemical reactions. Water breaks protein down into amino acids which reconstruct muscle, nerves and much more. But they just sit there as food until you eat them. You eat. Your digestive system digests. Sugar is used almost immediately. Fat is like a storage battery for work potential but it’s activated by your body’s backup systems for energy production. Two parallel systems to turn potential energy into kinetic Energy. Work creates heat. Temperature rises. Your brain is a kind of fat. Hot fat is liquidy. Colder fat is more gel like, more solid. When your brain is hot, potential turns into kinetic energy very quickly because the medium the nerves are suspended in is liquidy and loose. Less gets in the way of the work. But work makes temperature rise more. If you allow a hot brain to stay hot without cooling it down, it can get hotter and hotter and hotter. Faster thinking and amazing lateral connections can become Disorganized thinking if allowed to continue for too long. All of the systems that are turning potential energy into kinetic energy – creating heat and work break constantly. This is not a disaster. This is normal. Parts of the systems continually break and reconstructed as the day goes on. But like rolling a ball down the hill, pushing it back up, rolling it back down again, over and over, The systems that do the repairs in the body reach a point that even they have used up their potential energy and need to be repaired themselves. Because the body is a system of systems that attempts to stay at equilibrium – too many depleted repair systems convert the body out of balance. They’re not doing work anymore. They’re not generating heat. Other systems in the body might be generating heat but they aren’t. Repair systems repair the repair systems and you sleep. Close enough for me. G’nite.
