The effect of absurdism

Absurdism allows the mind to consume unexplainable things. The kinds of things that we seek to experience can be found in a "sweet spot" between possessing recognizable patterns and inconsistency.

This desire is rooted from the evolutionary need where we need to find knowledge and learn things about the world.

RELATED IDEAS

As unreal as it may seem, humans' intelligence is related to their birth. The growth in intelligence is very often associated to a an increase in brain size. The increase in brain size was only possible because there was also an increase in women's pelvis: the bigger the baby's brain, the bigger the mother's pelvis should be. Therefore, the women's role in the growth of humans' intelligence is often underestimated.

Poetry begins with reading the words of the poems

Poetry has a reputation for needing special training to appreciate it. In the classroom, poems were often taught as if they were riddles. We were taught that poetry is inherently "difficult" and that it makes meaning by hiding meaning.

Real progress begins when we get literal with the words in the poem. Pick a word that you find interesting in the poem, and start to investigate that word.

The passage of time is subjective

Time is the product of physics, but how we perceive the passage of time is the product of the mind.

Your perception of time is subjective and malleable - it changes in response to input and context. It can be distorted by drugs, disease, sleep deprivation, or other altered states of consciousness.
