Psychology student in the wilderness.
That’s great. Psychology in the wilderness. Like hail stones in the desert.

Plants come alive.
Only for the leaves to get burnt.
That is an illusion, I believe.
Perhaps, and perhaps we’re all an illusion.
Now, are dreams an illusion or are they for real?
Yeah, I guess. Not abstract as things like love.
Well, I think dreams always have some kind of basis in reality, and are probably as real as stories and such.
Maybe, but then love is very concrete in a way, in that it goes along with chemical changes, and even neural alterations at times.
The basis for dreams is hope, I guess. And does love go along with chemical changes and neural alterations? That’s an interesting correlation.
It does, like oxytocin is the love hormone – you get bursts of it when you hug people, or watch cute cat videos or comedy, and when you’re in love. And yeah neural changes, well it’s only just being looked into really, but I think expanding love for yourself and others probably does have a neural effect. Most things do really. Our brains are a lot more plastic than was once thought.
Now, that is psychology, isn’t it? And I hope brains being a lot more plastic isn’t a bad thing.
Yeah, it sounds a lot worse than it is – it just means better able to grow new neurons and develop new connections between neurons. More flexible. I think maybe the word comes from plasticine rather than plastic.
Never knew that it was so complex.
Oh, and sorry, I realised, I’ve totally bombarded your About page.
Hah yeah, it’s okay 🙂
Alright, it was nice talking to you. See you around, or something.
Figuratively speaking, that is.
See you around 🙂
Yeah, true. All that we see or seem. Is but a dream within a dream.
