When the body works in perfect harmony (side by side on my piano keyboard, but I digress), homeostasis is maintained. Allostasis is the new term, but the textbooks are still using the old one of homeostasis, but that is a digression, as well.

When our lives are in balance, we have our own sort of homeostasis. However, we tend to think of that as being stuck in a rut rather than being a good thing of being aligned and in balance.

Somedays, though, things go fairly well and the compound is a stable one.

Quantum Grumblings



Somewhere in a quantum reality more aligned with my wishes, there exists a me with a him. And that him is doing the things this me wishes this he were. Now chances are that that me is not happy with that him and wishing that him were this him. If you follow me.

How’s Shrodinger come into play? Well, I don’t know what state my him is in until I observe him, right? Theoretically it’s possible that my him is in fact now engaged in the very behavior I desire. It’s also likely that he’s not. Hell, maybe he’s not even in the box. That too is possible.
