Day 10 of the rewrites. This one was a recap. I don’t know what for. Now that I have rewritten everything it turns out I did not say much anyway. I’m doing this to get it over with at this point.
I made a lot of disjoint thoughts. I noticed that by default the use of media leaves artifacts. Nothing done through something else seems ephemeral. So I started ranting about the supposed lack of ephemerality. Then in the same post I refuted myself with an analogy about mosquitoes, whose media I guess is the skin?
Then I had to justify writing. I tried to elevate writing done by humans against those by machine algorithms. This by the way contradicts complaining about the supposed lack of ephemerality. Then the concept of self got introduced and comprehensibility went downhill fast.
Soon there were mentions of the ship of Theseus and narrative tools in anime. There were hints of time travel and the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics. Who knows if that even is what I was going after? Only ten days that started with a complaint about not being able to keep oneself drinking coffee.
Tomorrow I will start writing a do over with all the same concept. Let’s hope I’ll be able to say what I’m thinking with more clarity, unless something else comes up.
Enough for today.
The only reason I will keep saying stuff before the “Things Noticed” section is so I could always end with this. “This is too long, I’ll continue tomorrow unless something else comes up. Enough for today.“
