“The human mind has a primitive ego defense mechanism that negates all realities that produce too much stress for the brain to handle. It’s called denial.”

NACA via. Well this reminds me of our old friend Large Hadron Collider. I was pretty fascinated by it many years ago.

It was believed that alt-J’s Matilda is referring to the penultimate scene in Luc Besson’s Léon where it describes the holy demise of Leon and the sickeningly corrupt drugged-up Detective Stansfield.

This is for Matilda’

“How far have you walked for men who’ve never held your feet in their laps?
How often have you bartered with bone, only to sell yourself short?
Why do you find the unavailable so alluring?
Where did it begin? what went wrong? And who made you feel so worthless?
If they wanted you, wouldn’t they have chosen you?
All this time, you were begging for love silently, thinking they couldn’t hear you, but they smelt it on you, you must have known that they could taste the desperate on your skin?
And what about the others that would do anything for you, why did you make them love you until you could not stand it?
How are you both of these women, both flighty and needful?
Where did you learn this, to want what does not want you?
Where did you learn this, to leave those that want to stay?”

“If you imagine less, less will be what you undoubtedly deserve. Do what you love, and don’t stop until you get what you love. Work as hard as you can, imagine immensities, don’t compromise, and don’t waste time. Start now. Not 20 years from now, not two weeks from now. Now.”
— Wisdom from Debbie Millman. Have courage.

Before we can be recognized
it must be recognized we must.
The shallower the wound the
more toward value it turns us:
L, steadfast: “This is why I’m
hot.” This is why each cheap
liquor emails another. (This
is why the chicken slept with
the road.) How to explain what
made us famous? (How to at
once be & be through other
sides?) I have been calling back
America with your apartment
wrapped around it: heart grown,
absent, stupid, stop it: we are bad
books about our favorite topics.
I am my dumbest dollar & I am
what is left when it learns.
