I question the following

The recommendation of 8 hours of sleep

Doing stuff in the daytime and going to bed at night

The regimen of 3 square meals a day

Conventional interior design, such as coffee tables belonging in the living room

The binary in all its incarnations

Standard breakfast items, eg. bagels, bacon, cereal, pancakes — it’s all fat, grease and sugar

Getting married and having kids

The workweek

Dairy

Looking before you leap

Avoiding conversation with strangers

Physical & mental state

I feel extraordinarily relaxed. My heart is calm.

I resumed exercising 2 weeks ago. I sweat while running. Now my legs can rest.

I feel put, like a plant on a bookshelf — inert but alive and thriving.

I eat clean and efficient. Nothing extraneous. I’ve removed noodles, bread and rice from my diet.

I shop for lofty food — leafy greens and avocados, beans, garlic and onion, fruit, nuts and raisins, pesto for lettuce wraps.

I improvise a recipe of shredded carrot and black beans, tzatziki sauce, cucumber and red onion. Chopped romaine, feta and chickpeas.
