Since we’ve been away all day, this’ll be brief. 🙂
If the passions of humanity are a tree, the trunk is the passion they all should share: Morality, Reason, the Scriptures, and such; each branch has branchlets from it, but has a central trunk of its own: which the appropriate passion an individual person’s life, which all their other passions feed out of for them, as all of humanity’s individual passions feed out of the great trunk.
The central passion of my individual life is: the Strange.
From a conversation:
I gradually came to the full realisation that everything I was ever personally interested in came from a certain aspect of it: the Strangeness of it. Once I looked at my life and finally fully realised this and began exploring it, I have had an unquestionable vision of what my life will and is meant to be. 🧭
