winter withered, warm
Just realized this is all way off topic.
The craziest thing is that I don't seem nearly this crazy in person. Thats perhaps the biggest hurdle, digitally, when it comes to communicating this stuff. For all I know, I come across as a totally dysfunctional lunatic whose psychic prescriptions are to be avoided like the plague. Granted I still have a ways to go, but mind you these are dispatches from certain depths of metastable psychosis.
and @beiser I've only a thin understanding of clinical psychosis, for what that qualification entails, and I try to distance my usage conceptually by disclaimers such as "artificial" or "metastable", but I do think it is possible to drive yourself into psychic states that would qualify, clinically, as psychopathological.
All part of the larger framework-of-departure. What power does a clinical diagnosis have? Just how substantial are the assertions made by such and such expert? What are the forces compelling you to conform psychically? etc. A lot of overlap with my understanding of magic, as a sort of navigation and manipulation of psychic energy, the manner in which one's reality impresses upon them.
Biden's pick to be director of national intelligence, Avril Haines, was also a principal and consultant at WestExec. Haines reported $180,000 in “consulting fees” from Palantir, a data-mining company that has had government contracts with agencies like U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The Silicon Valley-based company was founded by Peter Thiel, a prominent pro-Trump conservative in the tech world.
