new to me.



  1. I have been thinking the past few days about subjectivity, the idea that we "carry" ours around 24/7 and so no matter where we are, where we go, we bring any tarnish or flaw with us. Subjectivity can be framed in all sorts of ways, as Freud did, for example, or as Buddha did... the shark in this video is as inescapable as any unwanted, unwelcome, avoided part of life, whether internal or external.

  2. Further, this video depicts to me the abyss that exists between subjectivities. Especially with mental illness, the difference between two people's experience of the same events can be profound. Mental illness separates and isolates; it is an extreme rendering of the usual gaps that exist among humans in understanding each other.
