Isolate Self & Deep Boredom
Another thing from Craig Mod, this time from his Roden newsletter #66.
When I set off on my long walks [...] I feel [...] like I’m tapping into [...] the fullest-of-most-fully-realized versions of my “isolate self.” (“Isolate” because the older I get the more I recognize the many self variants — like the family-self — which feel like they exist on parallel tracks, operate a bit differently.)
This reminds me of Byung Chul-Han’s ideas about deep boredom.
If sleep represents the high point of mental relaxation, deep boredom is the peak of mental relaxation.
