Missing Left Sock Beast [userpic]

Things that keep showing up since I attended the Museum of Jurassic Technology (including items or concepts in the MJT but nothing "spoilery"):

1. Cat's Cradles
2. Systems of logical argument
3. Madelines and Proust
4. The How of Memory
5. Eating mice

I'm pretty sure there was something else, too, but my brain is under the influence of ambien and I can't remember. The Proust and Madelines thing gave me a profound moment of confusion becuase when I re-encountered some information from MJT in "Proust was a Neuroscientist" (A book I recommend), I suddenly understood the point of the exhibit at the MJT. And don't get me wrong, I love those moments. It isn't so much that I wave at them as they go by, but rather I can tell, somehow, that I'm thinking differently because of that trigger.

And that's why everyone can go to the Museum of Jurassic Technology. So you all can try to figure out how any or all of it is related. Because I still don't think I understand. And I'm still pretty sure I want to go back.

Also, the Cat's cradle thing was getting freaky there for a while.

Comments

I love the MJT and I am absolutely certain I don't understand. I've been there twice now, and both experiences were quite surreal for reasons outside the museum itself; that seemed to reinforce the museum.

I'm thinking I might make ashenseraph go with me the next time I'm in the area.

I absolutely, positively, did not understand why there was a window looking onto a cup of tea and some cookies, and the exhibit title was missing.

You know you could smell the tea and cookies at little... um... smellports below the window, right?

No, I didn't. Damn. Yet another reason to go back. :)
