Waking up to wild wideawakeness, like creativity, is radical discontinuity in a default pattern of thinking.
If it’s confusing to family and friends that’s no fault of the awakened, for whom it might be totally disorienting, especially in the early aftermath.
Disorientation might leave one dazed. Yet there’s no confusion present. There’s awareness that both these states have occurred unwilled, and that’s a marvel.
Radical: radius, radiate, revolve, spiral . . .
Consciousness shudders to a halt
takes a 180 degree turn
re-turns to ITself
IT knows IT
