i've started this blog to keep track of things i've figured out that seem useful to remember

do most people have too many thoughts to have time to write them all down? in my mind "having too many good thoughts" is the province of the self-deluded. of course the only way that you can trust your own judgment of the quality of your thoughts is to convince yourself that you're NOT one of the self-deluded. but that would be pointless because you'd never have access to whether or not you were being "rational" about that - whatever "rational" could possibly mean. so given the knowledge that you, too, might be one of the self-deluded... and this is where i pause and remember that my discoveries and thoughts are useful to myself, and are therefore worth preserving.
