Some Late Friday Fives

From thefridayfive

1. What song would you sing to your newborn child? (OR if you already had a child, which song did you sing to him/her?)

Jonathan Coulton's Re: Your Brains, Leonard Cohen's Famous Blue Raincoat and Chelsea Hotel no 2., It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Fishmen...

You know, it's best that I got fixed, really.

2. How do you think animals think? (i.e. in animal language, human language, etc.)

This question is built on a mountain of weird assumptions.

3. As a child, did you have a dream to make a difference in the world? Can you describe your dream?


4. Do you believe in God/a Higher Being?

Yes, but not in the way most people mean it. (Thou art god)
Also, no, not really.

5. Do you believe in aliens?

Yes, but not in the way most people mean it. (Thou art god)
Also, no, not really.

From the altfriday5:

1. Do you often have songs stuck in your head? Does it bother you? What sort of songs get stuck for you?

Almost always. I have a soundtrack that plays almost constantly. I prefer to have music playing unless I'm doing something else to introduce variety to my mental soundtrack.

2. Do you converse with yourself in your head? How distinct are the pieces (from "I'm alone in there" to "there are several distinct people who inhabit our body")?

All the time. Sometimes the component parts of my personality are extremely distinct.

3. How easy it is for you to do math in your head?

I have to draw it first - I "write" on my mental canvas to do math.

4. How easy is it for you to visualize things in your head?

My mind's eye is as continuous and constant as my soundtrack. I have a continuous head's up display that I always imagine to be somewhere in the region of my forehead that's always got imagery of some kind on it.

5. Anything else we should know about that's going on in your head?

There are probably a few things. That doesn't mean I'm going to tell you what they are. It might help you steal my robot bee!
