    Part of the reason I can come up with something to say so quickly is because my mind is everywhere at once.
    But the act of making a post is still in the now though, ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh? Right?

    Yeah, but I'm thinking of 12 other things as I'm doing it.

    Also, it's official. Kelric and I now share a brain.

    It's like lacking the ability to focus on the thing that is right there in front of you. I don't know how many times I've sat down to study, with a strong desire to stay on task and get my work completed in an hour, then an hour goes by and I just realized I spent the whole time in fantasy land even though I tried my hardest to aviod it.

    My wife loves it when I get tired, because then my Ti can no longer hold my Ne in check. Then I just start spouting out random silliness as I think of it. Also whenever I get a song stuck in my head I'm not just thinking of the song. I'm either changing the words or creating my own music video (or both).

    For me it's like living in two worlds at once. My body does stuff in one world, while my mind thinks about things in the other (or sometimes my mind jumps from one world to the other and back). For example the other day a bunch of us actuaries were in a meeting discussing how to give thorough answers to test questions. All of these were technical insurance questions. Meanwhile my mind is thinking "What if a person had Tourette's syndrome, but it only affected them while they write?" Then I imagined myself answering the test questions while I had Tourette's of the hand, interspersing technical jargon with uncontrollable swearing. I tried my hardest not to sit there laughing to myself, because we were on conference call with about 30-40 people. After the meeting several people were commenting how boring the meeting was, while I was thinking how much I enjoyed myself.

    I'm the exact opposite, I get so focused on the thing I'm doing everything else around me seems to disappear. Pisses other people right off when they want to talk to me.

    I haven't heard your mumbo jumbo in a while- I miss it very much.
    In regards to your thought bubbles during your meeting, "That's gold Jerry that's gold!" I love your mind!

    For my birthday maybe you could miss out a couple days of sleep and just walk me through your mind for a few hours.

    If I'm thinking or dreaming, I'm doing it in the present moment. It's an active process. It's not like I'm a time traveler. Are you failing to be in the present whenever you're thinking? Or whenever you're thinking of something that doesn't directly relate to your immediate physical surroundings?

    Is being in the here and now like finding a state of flow? I do that a lot, but I probably spend more time thinking about possibilities. (But I can experience a flow-like state whether I'm thinking or doing. It can happen internally and externally.) If I'm writing, are we saying that I am being present because I'm typing, or that I'm in the future because I'm thinking of what to type?

    The only time I think "not being in the here and now" would be a bad thing is when the person either needlessly obsesses over the past or thinks a lot about the future but never does anything at all. (Dreaming or thinking of the past or future builds ideas and beliefs in your brain, so you are actually kind of accomplishing something.)
    "When a resolute young fellow steps up the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find that it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
