More importantly I love standing desks, dark, almost-bitter chocolate, and long baths with paper books.

Our human brains are so limited. My sense of the world is often overlaid by specters of all the things we humans are physically incapable of experiencing. Everything we understand is the equivalent of a mole trying to imagine the experience of a bee in flight: the movement of those translucent wings, the ultraviolet markings of something called a flower, the hive-centered desires. Okay, let’s be honest. Our ability to take in the entire universe is far more limited than any surreal mole-dream of a bee’s life. There is something magical in that limitation. There will always be mysteries we can't solve and experiences we will never fully grasp—a sort of Escher staircase of understanding...
