Psychology and philosophy, part two

So I pick up this book by this foreign sounding Philosopher Slavoj Zizek. And I pick this book up and a page through it a little bit, maybe something in the table of contents caught my eye, but I felt like this was Philosophy. in the sense that I understood Philosophy. So I bought it.

And I took it home and I started to read it. Honestly, I couldn’t make heads or tails from what he was talking about. I would make my way through about 15 or 20 pages, and then I close the book and I would think about what I just read, and it made no sense at all. Or maybe I just made a tiny bit of sense pieces of it, but, there is huge context, I was seriously wondering what the rest of the sentences meant. 😜

So I put the book down for a couple of months.

I don’t know what I did during that time. Maybe I was just learning how to produce music and was coming apart a lot of musical things I did from my past from friends of mine and just learning how to produce music and just tripping out on this past of mine that I guess I just kind of forgot about.

So a few months goes by and there’s this book sitting on the table on the shelf there. And so I pick it up again and I try to start in a different chapter. Still, it’s just not making sense. It’s just I can’t wrap my head around what he’s talking about. So I put it back on the shelf.

I think I did this for the better part of the year, trying to read a little bit of it, seeing that made no sense to me whatsoever, putting it back on the shelf to sit while I did other stuff.

And then came the time that I picked up the book and I decided to start from the beginning. And then this stuff just melted in my mind like butter. The copy that I own of that book is now filled with comments in the margin’s underlining, highlighting,*’s, all sorts of markings. All of a sudden I knew exactly what he was talking about. I zipped through that book probably in about a week or so and I digested it like it was the most tasty meal I’ve ever eaten except the one that Kierkegaard gave me in all of his works.

OK, that’s enough for part two.
