Hi Brian...thanks again for a stimulating blog post. Since Coryat has a pants size of 30 I cannot trust what he says due to undernourishment and probably low blood sugar. That was a sorry attempt at humor. However, some of the philosophical points he brings to the table are grist for the overweight thinking mind, indeed. We, as entities endowed with the capacity for perception, cognition and sensation, experience said sense-perceptions and process them differently. If this were not the case, it would be a jejune existence of banality and the evolutionary impulse would be stifled. So, viewpoint is everything...not the thing viewed. If somehow we could elevate our viewpoint above the flux and cacophony of the physical world, perhaps negative bias and inordinate criticism would diminish. But...don't hold your breath!

Music journalist, Jeopardy contestant, comedian. Probably bollocks with ninety five percent confidence then.
