(6) Homage to Odysseus, Adonis, Sigmund, Carl, and other Celestial Stars







Here I pay homage not only to the mythical heroes in whose tracks I have deludedly aspired to follow; I pay homage not only to the likes of Odysseus, Adonis, and Narcissus, but also to real stars, past and present, of modern pscyhology, whose wisdom has gone far beyond earthly concerns like vestibular dysfunction. Homage to Sigmund. Homage to Carl Gustav. Homage to Jundo Jim.

Ray Evans used to talk about "understanding the human condition." The further I go along that path, the more I love and wonder at human beings.

Never mind about devas. Human beings, in all their states of vestibular dysfunction, are interesting enough.

You said it, Will. Writing about vestibular re-education without giving it to people as a sensory experience is a sorry substitute for the real thing, even with nice pictures.
