    Default Self Expression

    I come here for self expression.

    Self expression is our great strength, recognising the dangers in narcissism and group bullying.

    Self expression thrives best on personal integrity and common decency.

    But is self-expression just a way to stroke our own egos? Like, when I write a heartfelt blog post, aren't I just crafting my own reality and persona by interpreting my experiences dualistically? I'm writing a story in which I'm the main character who is separate from all others and yet affected by everything.

    Self-expression is then merely the production of your very own Truman Show for an audience.

    When you find the self, let me know.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.

    Lark and Mole are but one entity with a face on front and back.

    I imagine Lark, Mole, and Jaguar as a behemoth, triple-headed Hydra, with each entity in a perpetual state of war with one another to determine who shall assume dominance over the physical form.
