First of all thank you for everyone who has subscribed. I thrive on knowing that there are people interested in what i write about.
As you may know i recently began an improvised online novel called Starlight Rust. I’ve had a lot of people talk to me about this and so i decided to create it’s own website. You can now read and follow the Starlight Rust novel specifically and officially here. If you haven’t yet read it, try the first chapter and tell me what you think.
The site will be clean and only post new chapters of the novel, so follow it and see how deep the rabbit hole goes. In addition, my site name has now been changed to ratanphamber.com. Sounds more official i think.
Things are happening. Thank you awesomes.
I stand with wind between my hair,
And death creeping beneath me;
A life’s grip on a death’s tool,
With the blade amongst decree.
The shadow beneath me, now behind,
And palms on each of my side;
A flash or two but no time for past,
Just one plea before that end of tide.
I’m back after a life’s hiccup, and it made me wonder about our mind and how it at times functions in almost a mechanical way (hence my blogs slogan). I read something interesting about the mind and how it shuffles through memories. When we are faced with problems and situations it’s possible that our mind subconsciously shuffles through memories within seconds to find something relevant for the current situation.
For example you’re in falling wreckage and you’re pinned. Your mind shuffles through memories and brings one of a film you watched about a dog. You wonder why this thought that arrived and then you realise you could get a nearby dog you just saw a few seconds ago to bring you something to pry yourself out to safety. Thus saving your life.
This could be the famous shuffling of memory in our mind that we call “that moment my life flashed before my eyes”. And that life being your mind looking for something relevant to the situation.
In this thought a little poem popped up in my head, as i was recently in an accident and thought of something similar. I might post it after this actually.
