You——but only if this page I wrote about You is true.
Wednesday, at hell-if-I-know pm
OK, back at it. Yet before I pick up where I left off in Issue No. 194, I need to tell you something.
Here's the deal. I'm jumping around a lot, and quite frankly, I have no idea what the hell the podcast version of The Daily Scott Scheper will turn into.
How I'm able to do it lately (without going crazy) is by writing out early versions of the work that I've written out by hand. What you have been hearing from me lately, well, up until the last few episodes, have centered around my work in my latest fascination——being my undertaking to encapsulate the system for reading and writing and creating genius-level work. The system I'm talking about is called Zettelkasten, as you may be aware. I prefer the term Second Mind (or "2mnd" as an abbreviation).
2mnd has never been written about in a straightforward manner; but perhaps more importantly, it's never been written about in an accurate manner (besides Luhmann himself).
What you've been reading (or hearing) are snippets. Fragments. They're like the Greek fragments of Biblical text that turn up in random ass caves every now and then. Like the one recently which surfaced Matthew 21:34.
If you picked that up, you'd find this:
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
The hell? Fruits and husbandmen. Hell I'd think I was reading Lil Nas X lyrics; not The Holy Fricken Bible.
So keep this in mind.
If you want to hang around and catch gems and wisdom that I drop on a daily basis, then you're welcome to hang out friend.
Otherwise, you'll need to wait for the fully formed and fully published work.
What I'd recommend, however, is that you stick around. Unlike other podcasts, this one isn't daily info-tainment, which sells stuff shamelessly. It's not a boring ass one that interviews whoever's people trying to hype their latest ball-sack of a book (you know, the one's that regurgitate biographies).
Nay, you'll hear actual, real, live, valuable info.
So stick around.
To stay crispy, my friend.
