Tonight I realised I've been thinking about my life too much to the detriment of actually living it. Socrates had it that an unexamined life was not worth living, but does this mean we should do nothing but examine our lives? Knowing things is regarded with such esteem sometimes by thinkers that you can forget that there are things you should just experience unthinkingly, letting them wash over you. That is life on the nerve end and it's time to return to it.
