Maintain continuity in life
Last modified on September 27, 2022

We need some ways of maintaining continuity in our life, keeping re-upping on the same, powerful threads. Life shouldn’t dissolve into a sea of fragmented, 30-second Youtube clips…rather, we should keep coming back to the same threads, seeing how they evolve over time.

To be transformed by a book, readers must do more than absorb information: they must bathe in the book’s ideas, relate those ideas to experiences in their lives over weeks and months, try on the book’s mental models like a new hat.

I feel like…it takes time to integrate insights. To stitch them into our webs of meaning.

This can mean:

I think another crucial source of continuity in life is being part of a good community. Essentially, I’d want to find community/communities that take “that one engrossing conversation that kept you up till 3am,” and serialize it. Be living and breahting in an ideaspace that is enriching.
