So has been my experience. In fact my life has appeared to be an escalating series of problems to deal with in my life and to help others solve in their lives. And it can't ever be a problem or combination of problems of ordinary proportions but always in the form of a blivet. Don't panic when the first 10 pounds hits you.
yeah, I had one of those a few years back...still in the process of regaining my composure
maybe this is superstition, but I have this idea that if I get out in front of the curve and make an effort to be corporately useful (at least during this period of relative stability and surplus resources), the HS won' t feel compelled to stick a cattle prod up my butt again to ensure the passing time is not wasted (or more accurately, stand aside when shiatsu is about to hit the fan).
If we embrace this model of little "us" being disposable avatars in a video game, and real "us" being players of the game at the controls, I wonder if the real "us" (FWAU/HS) just gets bored and thinks.."lets go down this dangerous looking alleyway to see what happens"
If we take this a step further, and "accept on faith" (for those PMR bound) that little "us" is a temporary illusion, we cannot die, and PMR is playground, fearlessness starts to make sense as a basic MO in order to exploit the experience.
This brings to mind that teenage girl who wants to (or is?) sailing solo around the planet - does she not capture this MBT value in its purest form.
Like spending a day at Disneyworld and being afraid to take some of the rides, how stupid would that be.
