I have what Eastern philosophers might call Monkey Mind but unlike most of them i do not regard it as negative.
I cannot seem to stick to one idea or even subject. Not only do i jump from science to science but also from science to art. I take a book, start reading then suddenly i get an urge to take artistic photographs or learn to draw or to play a music instrument! I might be reading book by Freud and then suddenly decide to read Carl Jung. My mind is complete chaos of perspectives and i love it!. My room is filled with books that are only 10 to 100 pages in but never finished. There are like 15 unfinished books laying next to my bed.
I walk by a tree outside and the amount of perspectives i can take to look at it fascinates me. I can look at it biologically, evolutionary, functionally, philosophically ( the tree does not care about meaning of life or its quality of life for example), artistically(colors and stuff), poetically, theologically and infinity others(if you include subcategories). I might for example think of how to paint it or which time of the day would be the best to take photo of it, i might judge its value in money, its use value to create something like a chair or paper. I might think about how old it is. Infinity of perspectives counting those that are not yet discovered.
I love life! I am filled with desire for knowledge and enthusiasm! although on the down side it seems like my curiosity far outweighs any other desire i have(like sex) which relatively speaking is not bad. I seem to have entered a new way of being in the world. A new consciousness full of creative force and curiosity.
It is very hard for me to pick a career as i am generally interested in about everything but on the other side i passionately hate manual labor. Doing it just makes me go out of my skin(that is the jobs i am limited to take for now as a student).
Anyone else feels similar way?
