I was going to blog some thoughts, but this will perhaps be more useful. I've always had a fairly active inner mind in the sense of communicating with myself. I've got an active inner world. I don't know if I like it that way or not. It's never been any other way...it does get tired and slow down at times. Lately, I get into an intense sort of purge mode. At those times I wish there were some way to record the stream of consciousness because the ideas seem good and come from somewhere I can't access on demand. I don't think any tape or writing system would work because it would be too slow and also would distract my mind from the process. I can do other things simultaneously, but not mind intensive things. I don't think it is racing thoughts. I'm not sure exactly how to better describe it. I know this sort of thing can be triggered by anxiety, my trying to solve the riddle of myself, and so on. That does seem to be a component, but perhaps there is more too it. It feels my mind is just using this tool to try to access something I can't quite get a handle on.
