Mental Gourmet

Man, I’ve been too involved in everyday life stuff lately. I want to go back to thinking about bigger things. I gotta be honest, I’m not really a fan of daily human activities. I hate the hygiene-stuff for instance, whereas I know some people absolutely love bathing, “getting ready”, and dressing in nice clothes. And I never even liked eating until I met my friend — she introduced me to the concept of food as a hobby. I’ve always found my fun in the quiet moments with thoughts drifting through my head — or by watching shows and playing video-games.

But if I wasn’t in human form, and had infinite knowledge, there’d be nothing to consider since I’d already know the answers. Not to mention, there’d be no path to travel since I wouldn’t be an embodied being. Having a human existence provides me with unlimited limitations — there’s obstacles to overcome, information to learn, information to forget and relearn again. I mean, as a thinker, being a human is as good as it gets. I can rediscover the same ideas as soon as I forget them!

Of course that sounds weird, but it’s the same way with eating. It’s always a new and exciting feast despite the fact that we already ate a similar selection a few days before. We eat the same types of foods over and over and over, and similarly we think the same thoughts over and over and over. If you’re a connoisseur of food, you’re going to seek out selections that delight your palate. Similarly, if you’re a connoisseur of thought, you best seek out ideas that delight your mind.

If you’re a gourmet, you’re not going to accept whatever crap is placed in front of you — no, you’re going to find the best of the best. So if you’re a thinker, you can’t accept just any random thought that flows through your thought-stream — gross! You have to refine your thoughts until they provide the satisfaction you so desire. And like with food, it’s good to take breaks from similar thoughts until they seem new again. So with that in mind, I guess it’s good that I was involved in everyday life stuff for a bit.
