    Now is the only moment there ever is.

    After reading some posts here, I want to clarify what I see as a mistake a lot of people make when discussing SP traits. Just because a person lives their life in an unstructured way is in no way connected to instability or craziness or any such thing.

    I see that a lot. Most SPs are very grounded in who they are. The expression of this may look strange or random from outsider perspectives. This is where, I think, the correlation of SPs and craziness comes into play.

    Personally, the YOLO fad is just that. A bunch of people who are stuck in their ruts and want to break out and need a mantra.

    What is this nebulous moment you speak of?... they are still trying to prove mathematically that time flows anyway. So if all that ever happened and ever will happen is "the moment", then only a few people are excused.

    great point! I think it's a fad for a reason, too... Just like things moving too fast for us, it's probably a somewhat philosophical interpretation on some people's part- actually, society forces us out of the moment a lot, with all the crap that goes on around us, the world getting smaller, we're forced to have all these huge concerns and it's confusing to know what you want to do, so people are pulling this "yolo!!" thing and just maybe blocking all that out and doing the complete opposite. (Could be a lot of other things too, but I think it's caused by a general society-is-confusing thing.)

    As far as SP's go, if you are naturally in the moment person, the opposite could be true, getting in touch with yourself and your desires due to kind of wanting to be natural and happy every day... Minimalists, people who spend a lot of time in nature... I would think that "truly" living in the moment may cause the opposite behavior of the crazy stuff in a lot of ways.. Of course, yes, then again, could flourish in a lot of the fast racing information coming at us and get caught up in it and go crazy... Lot's of interpretations here. The yolo thing got me on a rant. I hate the yolo thing. Get the thought police on that crap.

    I'm 35 and relatively healthy, drug free, no bullet holes. Not even heartburn. That has to count for something. What more does anyone want?

    Just when you think you've conquered real problems in life, there's this whole other level of people wagging their fingers at complete bullshit.

    Most of the best moments of my life have been during moments of flow, when I was unaware of time passing, or even where I was. In other words: living right here, right now.
    I recommend it.
