A couplathree things coming together.

There are a few things swirling around in my head and I don't know if I have the time or the...what's a good word...context? To put them all together....

So here's a new thought instead, sparked by my difficulty. I have these dispirate thoughts:

  • The concept of being more effective in a smaller framework-limited time, space and concept breeds results.
  • The most powerful emotion on Earth? Love? Fear? Joy? Indegestion?
  • What am I writing about? Is it useful? Is it inspirational? Does it matter? Don't worry if it's not good enough, for anyone else to hear...just sing, sing a song.

All good topics which I should explore but not related in a linear way. And this is linear - writing - beginning, middle, end.

But that's not how people think is it? We think on multiple levels on multiple topics in multiple ways. And that's just our internal life. Our experience of life is a multidimensional storm of experiences and information and senses and chemical reactions and memories and associations and random flashes of electrical energy and weird quantum effects and automatic responses, emotions, farts and itches.

A brochure is more like it. Or a web page. With hyperlinks and text, pictures and video and all these various voices and inputs the Web is more like our experience than an essay.

So I wonder if there is an artform that can express this mulitmedia experience. It seems like Rememberance of Things Past approximates it as well as anything actually.

Ah well.
