Does my personality evolve? It doesn’t seem continuous, but discrete personalities moment to moment, and that they are different moment to moment, with goal of adapting to world? (Or is that not the only or even primary goal of personality?)
I have to keep in mind I can’t force new vision, none of that. So I let go of trying to force myself, and when I got to fence, I listened. Heard the bird again. Then thought of how I walked through the rain going by sound, eyes closed. So I closed my eyes, walked from corral fence toward the barn—and I never got out of the corral—disorienting when reopened my eyes.
