Tying together the world’s attention triggers

Walking with our steady cam, our eyes scan the world. See enough, we write it down.

The more we get down, the more connections we can make — the more disparate items we can intermix the better.

Should we not lace anything, we wait. We given the brain a night’s rest so it can untangle shaggy shapes into coherent bodies of thought.

All of a sudden the ideas come without asking for them, all by turning off.

Reality is a catalog of attention triggers. It is our job to draw analogies across divergent subjects.
