The books I read this week are very different from each other. Emotional and thought-provoking. But they have one thing in common - evaluation.

aperfectmjk I'm off work tmrw... doctor's orders. I somehow managed to pop a rib out of place below my clavicle. I'm going to take advantage and do some reading and maybe some binge watching. 2mo

This is fairly aside from the main point of this book, but her comments about free will actually really helped. I hate the idea of not having free will, and most understandings of human behaviour show that we don't: a conscious decision to move is preceded by an unconscious set of signals that start the movement -- but, she points out, we are not separate from our biological processes, but constructed by them.

shanaqui So it's not that "I" have preferences and a moral code and so on which is separate from the biology -- they are constructed by that biology, there is no point of separation, no two halves to the equation (the conscious and the unconscious). It's all the same me. And this is what I really believe anyway! Cartesian dualism is bananas. But no one before ever phrased it in a way that made things click for me. 3mo

A friend from work (at Beeminder) recommends this highly, so I'm finally getting stuck in. So far it's very readable, though not wholly surprising to me, but I've only just started.

My heart after reading this book! 😭💜 Calvin in moving into a new house for “a while.” He doesn‘t know how to express the emotions that he is feeling so he acts out. He thinks Maggie will send him away. But she just loves him through it and helps him deal with his emotions and shows him that he is loved and he will continue to live with her for “a while!” #bbrc
