katesilvergirl: oh geez, matt
katesilvergirl: i know how you feel
katesilvergirl: what would it be like for you to go crazy
katesilvergirl: what form would it take?
Pedalboy007: i would jump in and out of consciousness... i would do things and do not know why or remember them when i regained consciousness. I would stare at my own actions like a tourist in a foriegn country. I would stare, eyes unfocused, making people uncomfortable when they think i am looking at them. I would have anxiety attacks. I would still be a creative being, but my creations would no longer make any sense to anyone but me, and then they would only make sense to me as I was creating them, never after.
Pedalboy007: i would take everything to its logical extreme
Pedalboy007: i think the last part is the worst

-----

I already take things to their logical extreme occasionally. Funny how sometimes I feel guilty about it. Doing this shows the absurdity of commonly accepted things. I do it mostly out of a fascination for Dada. Trying to "create paradigm shifts" and all that. But that only works when other people understand what you are doing, which is seldom, and if they are already aware enough to understand your actions, they aren't the ones that need to learn it anyway.

Books you need to read, world:
Breakfast of Champions, Kurt Vonnegut.
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Robert M. Pirsig.
Welcome to the Monkey House, Kurt Vonnegut.

Matt should have already read the Stranger in high school if he'd been paying any attention in english. I do like that book though. I mean come on, remember the paradoy "I killed someone, whatever, I do what want."
