One thought on “Rafting

  1. I like the way you find analogies to human interactions. It’s these associations that turn abstract ideas into those that are exemplified and typified in the concrete and also make them easier to call to mind. Sometimes you can get a realization about some idea and code it into an analogy; this help others to understand the idea. I like reading though experiments about physics, quantum mechanics, and astronomy. I get flashes of insight that I find quite exciting, if not long lasting–if I’m not careful to write down my ideas, they disappear and the moment is lost.
