Am I allowed to think about breathing?

Posted by: Ahmed [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 8, 2006 6:48 PM

Don't you find thinking about breathing makes the actual act of breathing a lot harder to do?
Better let Ze handle that one too. . . .

i once had this problem... you know... thinking. i'd gotten into it by accident... my senior year of college i started hanging out with the wrong crowd, a crass bunch of anthropology students and feminist theorists who wore shirts that said "neoliberalism sucks" and "WWMD: what would mohanty do." i tried it - thinking - once, "to be cool"... next thing i knew i was doing it surreptitiously at football games, in the car - once or twice i even caught myself thinking in class! i'd gotten pretty good at hiding it - from my friends, my family, even myself - but it was self-destructive behavior, and deep down i hoped that someone would recognize my problem before it was to late...

it almost was.

i'm told it was pretty shocking to watch - apparently i started babbling about the intersections between science as situated knowledge and bourdieu's concept of power - but my body's fight-or-flight response managed to shut me down almost immediately and i went into a coma. it took months of intense therapy - watching "real world," reading "Cosmo," surfing ze's site - before i was back to a semblance of myself again.

now i'm a graduate student, and almost fully recovered - but i've never forgotten how easy it was to get in too deep. the warning signs were there - so please, if you see your friends thinking, do the right thing: stand 'em on their head over a keg, and when they're good and ready, turn up right-side-up to watch some ze.
it's the least you can do.

Incidentally DenaliWoman, I was thinking along the same lines when I came to post.

Thank heavens for grad. school; it has almost cured me of thinking.

ASHA is my overlord. ASHA is good. ASHA is right. BRAIIIINNNNNSSSSSSS.....
