    To me, this type of encounter is the antithesis of intensity - just superficial flutterings that are as annoying as a housefly buzzing around me while I am trying to do something. The intensity I seek is in my own actions and interactions, and is related to the focus and concentration (concentratedness?) of the experience. It involves my being able to engage my whole self in the experience, whatever that may be.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    i like intensity. but i don't know why i'm attracted to intensity.
    i wonder if it's because i'm impatient so i like high dosages
    at once. or perhaps because i'm always 'somewhere else'
    and i think i need a higher dosage to tether me in the present
    moment? or maybe because i'm always winging it, and the
    more i have to wing it with is better? or maybe a combination
    of some sort.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.
