If I think of life as a structure-less X
in our universe. I can think of X as "a striving for structure." Within
the Human enterprise, and I don't mean the business of business is
business, I mean all the way back to the bubbling stew, I can think of X
as having become overly confined by structure. Tension X, I'll call it.
Or for the sake or brevity TX. Luckily, or unluckily for us we
have a playground within, which is loosely referred to as imagination.
And in this place we can do all sorts of things without every actually
having to give these things structure.
One sadness in my own life is a dislike of the word
'imagination.' It all probably goes back to Disney and
a half baked Rabbit cartoon whose character had clearly
been over indulged as a baby Rabbit, or had access to
massive quantities of medical marihuana, or more likely a
Rabbit aunt in the pharmaceutical industry. I see his little
deranged face and sickly sweetness and floppy ears every
time I see the word imagination and my toes curl. So I am
going to think of 'imagination' as Tension X and maybe it
will serve me better.
