Dentures

"Our minds can be wonderful, but at the same time they can be our very worst enemy. They give us so much trouble. Sometimes I wish the mind were like a set of dentures, which we could take out and leave on our bedside table overnight. At least we would get a break from its tiring and tiresome escapades." --Sögyal Rinpoche

Hahaha!

Just take out the amygdala in particular and put it in a glass next to the bed. Rinse that shit out.

P.S. Loving Hyperobjects. It's dope.
Would you agree that the Early Modern ships--the ones that distribute slaves and syphilis--also inaugurate the Anthropocene? Race as a hyperoject?

And now that I've read Hyperobjects: FOR SURE HOG CAFOs AND THE LIQUID MANURE PRODUCED BY THEM COMPRISE A HYPEROBJECT.
Viscous, everywhere, in the food we eat, in the widescale destruction. Sorry for all caps, but I used to wonder this... and now I know.
