dreaming (while asleep)
it's very zen, apparently. i just zone out.. all the psych gurus say it's supposed to be awesome but it makes me less productive, I believe.
also, I think a lot about how rapidly the world is changing now and how it would have been more serene not knowing all that we collectively know now and just to be able to kind of exist and wonder about existence without all this information that is crammed down our throats at present. I like to think about how we've created this reality for ourselves but how easily everything could have been totally different. Trying not to be shit-scared about how all our systems seem so fallible and how things seem to be shooting off the rails. I'm an idealist, for sure, and always have been... but I'm also a realist and sometimes I just feel kind of paralyzed with uncertainty about the future and I feel like that uncertainty is worse for my generation than generations past.. I try not to get bummed out about this stuff but it sure does enter my stream of consciousness fairly often.
