“If the human brain were so simple that we could understand it, we would be so simple that we couldn’t.” – Emerson Pugh
No one can be permanently hypnotised.
I read the ‘Bulletproof Diet’ a few months ago and something strange happened.
Veggies,butter, red meat=Yay!]
That pretty much sums the whole book up.
But ‘Bulletproof diet’ was an infomercial in book form. It was the author’s sales catalogue masquerading as a diet and lifestyle book.
The book was hypnotic and was effective in changing my mind.
After reading it I immediately upped my coffee intake. So much so that I started having many of the caffeine overdose symptoms, worst of all was the persistent eye twitching.
I also started intermittent fasting, which I enjoy for the convenience and flexibility it gives me.
But despite all the problems caffeine was causing, I was too blind to see it. Call me gullible or extremely susceptible, but the book has effectively blinded me against coming up with solutions to my symptoms.
Then something else happened.
The coffee maker broke down.
Suddenly : no coffee, no choice.
And as forcefully and abruptly as I had begun my coffee habit, it stopped.
With great power comes a hyper inflated ego.
-My previous boss, my ex-spiritual teacher, the public official with enough power to make your life miserable, the politician who misused public funds, Kings of colonial empires, dicktators(deliberately misspelled), the popstar adored by millions of prepubescents, my next ex- boss…not in any particular order
Until I learnt to read, I always thought the nursery rhyme went ‘Omelette Donald had a farm, eeieeio!’
This is also gave me a strange hankering for eggs and egg preparations even though eggs were something forbidden in our ‘vegetarian diet only’ home, which has never left me to this day.
