I swear, he's not "on" anything...
Josh 201604 KWP
From Erica: Max is lying on the floor and just said, "It feels SO WEIRD to have... CONTROL over yourself. Like... to move your body. To be able to move your body how you please just by... thinking."

... suuuuure he's not.

What a nut.

"Thinking meat! You're asking me to believe in thinking meat!"

"I can control my body as I please just by THINKING!"

Maybe they only go through a meat phase?

I remember having euphoric thoughts like this at his age, but never put them so eloquently. I also at that time was naive enough to think that if I just kept at it, I could eventually use that same element of control to manipulate objects outside of my body. I didn't know what a Jedi was. I'm sure he does. And I'm sure he has a much firmer grasp on how fictional that is than I did when first saw the films.

Not fictional, just implausible and impractical. But, there is no spoon!

Anyway, I can cause things outside of my body to move without touching them.

"Hey, can you get that for me?"

Indeed. One of the most important things I've ever realized (and forgotten, and remembered again...) is that the difference between living in a soulless mechanistic world and an amazing world full of magic is mostly (entirely?) a matter of perspective, and the two perspectives can even coexist, albeit a little uneasily.

Or in the immortal words of ICP, "Fucking magnets, how do they work?"

Max should just listen to ICP.

this made me laugh soooooooo hard. Max is so funny!
