I wish I could talk about “any” subject as well as this guy. I can type my thoughts better than I can speak and I’m extremely artistic. Everyone has their gifts. Don’t look down on yourself.

This is how ghosts must have been invented when people didn't know what hallucinations were

“Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Heres Tom with the Weather.”
The great late Bill Hicks.

The human brain continues to amaze me. I got hit by a car a few months ago, resulting in a traumatic brain injury. Ever since, I've been vividly dreaming about certain childhood memories I had forgotten, mostly unpleasant ones. This never happened before the accident, so it seems something was triggered in my brains. I have no evidence or knowledge to support this though, it's just my experience, but I do wonder if others experienced something similar.
