Abstraction

As a first, one's sense of self, or ego, is a mental projection of one's interpretation of one's past or history, primarily. To simplify, we aren't bothered with factors like prejudices & the like. As any other human faculty, the ego has its good and bad. Refining again - evaluating ego as bad on the whole - , it is easy enough to deduce that minus the memory of the past & its glorified interpretations, there is no ego. And hence spontaneity, or no accrued sense of self over time, is essentially egoless.

Second, is the matter of extrapolation. Or time series analysis, if you're that kind of a person. Invariably, they are a projection of the outputs, or mostly just one output, of a process. It is unfair, & perhaps wrong, to expect one time investments to yield constant output over the years. The right thing to do is, of course, to take a step back & look also at the environment in general & the inputs directly governing the process. And if you find that these have changed or dwindled, then you bring in reinforcements.

In summary, all I am saying is, irrespective of how matters stand as of now, start saying it with flowers again, the past notwithstanding.

Simplifying further, renew!

Disclaimer*: I did not think of all of this. So I am not to be blamed, fully. Understand?

Anon buddy:

You got my drift, to put it another away.

I agree that some of my posts have been rather cryptic. This, sometimes, is intentional because this is a public website & I do not wish all & sundry to read too much into the content. Further, as a certain Einstein of first name Albert puts it:

"Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler."

Keep dropping in.

S!

Sure bud. It's great to read your blog. Speaking of Albert Einstein, I hope he made this statement, thinking about it for the 100'th time.

"I think and think for months and years. Ninety-nine times the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right."

- Albert Einstein
