Too Much

Once you realize that humans are basically hopelessly delusional, you may feel a sense of relief, but you still have to figure out how to make a life for yourself in those conditions.

First you need to crank up the squelch to filter out most of the paradoxes. If you listen to everything and really try to consider it, your head will spin constantly.

On top of this pile the real issues in politics, environment, and social organization.

Seems like the two options are to babble constantly or to shut up completely.

Hence some long silences. No thought lasts long enough for me to articulate it. Sometimes new information derails a conclusion that was starting to form. Or lack of information makes any attempt to express a conclusion too vague.
