getting to the point where we'd be willing to run up and hug old acquaintances we don't even get along with anymore. i miss just casual, uncalculated socialization, as much as any such thing ever existed in our life

stand down
you spite all the ways that my failings panned out
like a violent wave
hit the railing, man down
spit on the graves
with an open hand out

the story
the story's not over
at my window
there a sparrow
the past is broken
the future is here

whose side are you on
what side is this anyway
put down your sword and crown
come lay with me on the ground

it would be nice to be able to pool knowledge with the alternate universe versions of ourself that didn't just completely fuck up their time in higher ed

sometimes we fantasize about being posted to some remote arctic or desert or mountain research station and just living in the Science Zone and nowhere else for a little bit

okay shuffle, that's cool, but we do have more than math rock and dnb in our library

working to catch up on reviewing and applying instance blocks. bluhhhhhhh

...still don't understand why they scrunched the vocal tracks onto side A of the vinyl and shunted all of the instrumentals and bridge tracks and everything else onto sides B-D, though :/

revised explanation of aggregate median structure 

2, mask: contextually mediated aspects of identity, including some degree of empathic mirroring. can change situationally on a scale of hours or days, or suddenly in response to extreme situations. masks have underlying complexes of acute physical, emotional, & spiritual imperatives, which are mapped onto the closest representative identity: limni₂, aster₂, ramshackle₂, rue₂, etc.. mask at time of writing is ramshackle₂, who is associated with mystic exploration, gruff engagement, playful subversion, and hedonism.

revised explanation of aggregate median structure 

1, substrate: base personality. changes cyclically over a scale of weeks to years. a shift in substrate means a changing of articulable desires and immediately accessible memories. we've identified at least four aggregations of characteristics that have been given names: limni₁, ramshackle₁, kaleidoscope₁, and obsidian₁. current substrate at time of writing is obsidian₁, who is rationally-minded, driven, & fundamentally inhuman. water of fire. associated with jormungandr and the season of winter.

revised explanation of aggregate median structure 

0, metaphor: foundational/base model for the subjective experience of the world. very slow to change. deeply influences the way reality is perceived. at time of writing, our metaphor is "prism, mirror, lens₀", taken from Dhalgren's thematic refrain and optical metaphor for consciousness &c. Aspects of consciousness are seen as a shifting set of interrelated components variably and reactively refracting, reflecting, or distorting the expression of some deeper Self or Selves.

revised explanation of aggregate median structure 

in regards to the dominant aggregate median aspect of our system, we use a tiered identity model to describe the composite that makes up our current self at any given moment. some names repeat for historical reasons, which should not be taken to imply equivalence across levels. the scope of a given name is indicated by a numerical subscript suffix.
