So I was watching this documentary on Daniel Tammet, a math savant. He has great ability with numbers and a special synesthetic relationship with them, identifying them by shape, color, texture and feeling. He performs calculations without actually calculating. The way he describes it is that he sees a landscape which evolves, and these landscapes are linked to numbers which he can extract the answer from. Pretty interesting. The documentary also shows kids trained for years in the use of an abacus, who are able to perform calculations using an imaginary one, extremely fast.

…I can’t help but picture La Roux’s “In for the kill” in a literal sense, Dexter-ish style, but really full of gore, severed body parts, chopped pieces of meat, rivers of blood, sparkly knives, and Diablo’s The Butcher screaming AHHHH, FRESH MEAT! It brings me to a state of innermost rage not many things are capable of.

Lately my only expectation is for a sunny day. I like to go outside and lay on the grass and have the warmness ease the cutting wind. I stay there for a long while thinking about nothing. It’s pretty quiet here. I enjoy that very much. The land is wide and I sit right in the middle. The walls keep me from seeing the outside, the trees keep me from seeing most of the walls.
