I am become Oddity, explicator of the human condition

I am the Boy’s project for psychology. He is writing a case study of me and my ways, basing the need for such a study on the fact that I am self retraining (his words; I usually refer to it as “self programming”).

I am interested and afraid (as discussed with to read what he has to say on the subject.

  1. His school has a class in non-human psychology?

    I like Krisna’s version better. I wonder if that’s the only line anybody knows from the Bhagavad-Gita. I found another nice one when I re-read it last month, but I can’t remember it. 🙂

    1. Actually, I got it from Oppenheimer. But I’d rather be associated with Krisna.

      Now, that god knew how to party.

    2. And, in fact, I pointed out to him that self programming made me, essentially, not human. I also told him that I hoped that he would attain that trait some day.

      1. First known case study of posthuman society?

        I think I self-program too … I mean, I’m not sure what you mean when you use those words, but I know what I would mean if I used those words…

        Okay, time for lunch.

        1. Self-program: Determine new behavior sets that are desireable, determine what is needed (both internally and externally) to acheive that behavior set, and then apply self-control and will to action to achieve the set.

          Or, to put it more succinctly, “Figure out what to do to get better, then do it.”

          And yes, I have seen signs that you do this.

          1. Yeah, this is very definitely something I do. Is it something most humans *don’t* do? That seems very counter-productive!

          2. *grin* I’ve always thought so. But think about it; don’t most mundanes seem to run around, making the same mistakes over and over, and being miserable through their own actions?

            I really don’t think they can correct their own programming.

    1. I’ll tell him. But I don’t feel much like boiling, watched or not. I shall, however, go find some other kitchenware to accuse of being black.
