    It's very heavy but fascinating. Vampy recommended Embassytown by China Miéville and that was terrific (philosophical sci fi). I'm reading all of his books now that I can find. Hmmm my tastes lean towards anything by Octavia Butler or Ursula K. Le Guin. Try those for page riveting and intelligent sci fi. For anti-dry, ie. light, witty and fun try anything by Tom Robbins, he has kinda a Vonnegut-esque style of writing.

    For classically contemporary excellent reads: Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez or The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera.

    Superficially flow sounds like something water does but it's attention focused at just the right frequency to achieve an objective, it's swimming. Floating seems zen, giving up attachment to outcomes, expectations and objectives at least in the moment, it's freedom from worry, worry based on meeting predefined expectations/goals. For a J type it's very difficult at first to let go of the sense of control and then...it feels like the ultimate freedom, no agenda leaves an ability to react in the moment and teaches one to trust in those reactions. This idea has entirely altered (for better) the way I interact with the world. I flow better with it, but I don't think in the way flow is defined neurologically.
    Perdido: just started, so far it's well written like all his work.

    I think the difference is mainly a more positive mental state. Floating somehow makes things line up in life (or at least it feels that way for me). No need to hold on tightly to projected outcomes. Less tension, a lighter approach seems to lead to more patience and more joy. The fact that you spend much of your time philosophizing and introspecting is in no way surprising.

    This idea of moving like water has been on my mind lately quite a bit, a philosophy I've adopted recently. It reminds me of a Hunter S Thomas's response he expounds on Shakespeare's "whether 'tis nobler..."

    “To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles…”

     
    And indeed, that IS the question: whether to float with the tide, or to swim for a goal. It is a choice we must all make consciously or unconsciously at one time in our lives. So few people understand this! Think of any decision you’ve ever made which had a bearing on your future: I may be wrong, but I don’t see how it could have been anything but a choice however indirect — between the two things I’ve mentioned: the floating or the swimming.

    What is more malleable is always superior over that which is immovable. This is the principle of controlling things by going along with them, of mastery through adaptation.

    from the book, what do you think of it? Are you going to follow the mental path he lays out?
