The Impracticable and The Paranormal and Nice Clothes.
Of Washing Machines and The Internet Age
As a tool creating species and a user of tools, practicality is a biological constraint of circumstance in one respect and in another, when either emerging or being immersed in the paranormal, the biological urge that is one of the trick bags of the mind, the superimposition of projecting our purposes onto the strange is such a strong imprint, that has me and perhaps yourself entangled up to our knees.
The imaginary puppetry of the personality cannot resist grabbing onto the tree to pull down a harvest of bananas as a sort of food for the game of engaging one realm onto another. Making shirts out of belief or even seeking belief as a biological imperative. Nice shirt, nice clothes while dodging uncertainty. Oh, you got that nice clean blouse dirty or getting a tear in your pants while dodging slings and arrows. The paranormal as a testing facility for the impractical, versus the scripts we prefer. I like chocolate and hate asparagus. The boss calls you in. "Who made that decision?" Er, no one, it's just there or here or a preference, not really a conscious choice as it were.. the trickster masked as choice in a garden of delights that also frames the unpalatable perhaps at times as impractical, non-usable, a waste of time...non productive in the lens of utility, purposeful behaviors and the like..toward "what nice clothes we have on"..you have good taste, or the binary of it's shabby sheen, or to think to oneself, that man or woman has no taste.
Behind all this is a mystery as they say wrapped in a enigma, and our poses before it's mirror that seemingly wash away, and scrub clean those nasty grass stains. The binary of believer and the skeptic as a motor, a dynamo that produces a heat engine of the uncertain. We hang onto our hats it's a bumpy ride. Others fall off, some become evangelicals of the practical imposed on the impractical, domesticating uncertainty.
Call this a fashion statement.
