Pffft. I do not take the drugs.

In the past few days, I have discovered that four cups of tea a day brings vast insights at 3AM about the nature of chaos theory, pacifism, tolerance and respect for all opinions as being merely different sides of the same coin, all within the framework of chaos. When we see the coin rather than its aspects, we can raise ourselves above the petty needs of opinions and its cycle. We can achieve the larger picture. As all balance thrives on smaller, incessant struggles, it is the sum of these struggles that will form the nature of all things. Rather, it is the sum of the struggles that make a thing that leads to balance. It is rather why I don't argue with utopians -- the view of perfection as a solid state is but a view of a frozen instant in time. It is the same reason I don't argue with anarchists, again, although it is a view of flux, it is flux without consideration for infinite resolutions. In either path, the consideration for infinite repercussions means the arguments cannot ever be resolved so long one party remains in a single view even if the other side adapts. This is the view from different sides of the coin. The lesson is to transcend.

More specifically, the lesson runs thus: if there is an opportunity for debate, do not look first at what and how a point can be won, but how the other side considers your view. In that way, the weakness of both views becomes apparent, and the larger picture can be perceived. It is through this that we see all opinions, all life -- all things -- are fleeting. Views, which like all other things are destined to expire, will always rotate on their own axes.

It is functionally calming.

I attribute thinking about chaos theory in my overtly caffienated moments to having to code far too many loops. Loops are like chaos theory, especially when they stick a finger up your nostril at run time and tell you they won't end for nothing. In the larger picture, the loops do not matter. But getting paid for the project does!

And thus, thus, we see what happens when I have access to tea.

What kind of tea?
Mar. 30th, 2006 05:53 am (UTC)
The average black tea in teabags one buys in 100 bag boxes. :)

And in what size cup?

Mar. 30th, 2006 05:53 am (UTC)
The average 1 cup size as seen on measuring cups. :)

Egads. Four cups wouldn't even wake up my bladder.

And I take it with the calming cold tablets of calllllm. Four cups were enough to have me jumping off the walls.

The cold tab now, would likely have me jittery. :D

Cold tabs were combination paracetamol and zyrtec. Both make people jittery, but I'm immune. Now, gimme asthma relief pills, on the other hand...

In fact, I had to take tea to stop me from going so calm I'd fall asleep. ;)

Mmmmm, medication!

S'like looking through my old medicine cabinet. "Sleepy, sleepy, jittery, sleepy, zombie, phazy, sleepy, braindead, just dead..."

There is, you know, a good reason why I've never needed drugs or alcohol... Usually, what I manufacture in my head is good enough.
