Ever feel like your brain is going on overload?
By that I do not mean your garden-variety, generic onslaught of information we are mercilessly assaulted with from every direction on a daily basis. Your brain instinctively prioritizes and sorts through the random distractions as you go about your usual business, without any real “conscious” effort from you. Not the pop culture slag deposited in your mind as you watch most TV shows and the drone-like mentality you experience as you receive the daily dose of news from the usual sources. No, I am not talking about the rotten shoal that has become what we call “entertainment” today (yes, I do realize this is a blatant generalization), which infuses a constant stream of serious idiocy into culture- any culture, that is.
What I am talking about is the unrelenting excess of your own thoughts. The mental supermassive black hole into which a convoluted jumble of randomness writhes wildly in the grip of reason. The more you try to extricate an ore of logic from the mess, the more it becomes intractably entangled and further coils onto itself, smothering any sliver of sanity.
So, does that ever happen to you?
P.S. No, I am not going crazy, if that’s what you’re wondering right now. Well, maybe a few screws have come a little loose lately, but nothing a shot of espresso can’t fix.
