A few weeks ago, someone wrote these comments: As I read this I thought to myself, I’m not experiencing the world this way. And wondered if perhaps it’s because I walk in nature so much. The second sentence grabbed my imagination. I felt there was something in that statement worth pondering. I decided to hold that statement in my mind and heart while on my walks. After a few days, a thought percolated into my awareness, “Life is a strange loop”. I kept getting this phrase during the night. On 16 February, I realized it was related to the statement that I had decided to hold in mind and heart while I walked. "Yet, at the same time, is is everywhere if we find a way to tap into it against all odds against us on this planet." I have two books on my shelves with the phrase “strange loop” in the titles. One by Joseph Chilton Pearce, a favorite author, titled, “Strange Loops and Gestures of Creation”. Another by Douglas Hofstadter, an interesting thinker, “I Am A Strange Loop”. The first book seems the more relevant to the statement pondered. I’ve started rereading both these books. I wish I had time to deep dive on them. That’ll have to wait until I’m finished with the Appalachian Trail thru-hike. There's a quote in Joseph Chilton Pearce's book that leaped out at me. "We are a billion heads and one heart."
