This is certainly a much needed kick in the arse for me.
I'll have some thinking on it.

I often feel like the Cramulus Guru autopilot is responding...
Well, that was an asshole thing to say.

And sometimes you talk to someone, and you can recognize that they're not really there. You're talking to their autopilot.

it feels like you are talking about the sense that seems to hit hardest when you're on a long trip and you suddenly realize that you are driving. i think it's just a matter of attention. you can either focus your attention on the real and tangible, or you can focus on your thoughts or imagination. i think it is only deliberately that a meditative state of "no mind" can be achieved and there's some sort of irony in maintaining that state. (how do you maintain a state of "no mind" without thinking about it?)
then again, maybe not all minds work the same way.
Cram, I believe you are about to become a father. If I remembered right about that, congratulations! and: I predict your perspective on mindfulness is about to undergo a major shift as you will be focusing your attention on providing for and protecting your toddler from themselves. there will be times when you are completely aware of *their* world and unaware of your own.

There was a moment where you decided to move dirt, to change streams.
This is an important moment!
What was seeing, right then?
What is it, inside of us, that sees things from a higher perspective? and can sense these wild impulses that occupy us for years at a time?

But what to do about these assholes? They have no soul. They dislike their own odor. They have never had fun in their entire lives, and they're not about to start now. In a proper world, they'd all be put in cargo containers where nothing will agitate them. And then maybe dump them in the ocean off Greenland somewhere.
They are the new scum, which is like the old scum except maybe they color their hair and wear "Keep <insert name of city> Weird" shirts. As if they knew weird. Their weird is pink hair and dismal, low-grade BDSM, and maybe walking around Second Saturday gawking at the street artists. But when you or I let our faces slip and show them actual weird, they all crowd to the other side of the bus and call the cops to shoot us stone dead for our own good.

A serious musical analysis of Clowncore.
Clowncore found here for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hT7x1NvGf5k
My summary is "Sufficiently advanced music is indistinguishable from antimusic, except more consistently funny"

I find booze and PEEDEE effective.
Not at the same time though. That's like Drinking and Driving. You might get lucky most of the time, but one day, you'll end up in a stranger's living room, car parked on their dog, while you're ranting about the Eschaton.
