You are vibrating. You are oscillating between sincere and fake physical engagement, or if you like, through sincere representation. You have in mind the book of Portuguese neuroscientist Antonio Damasio (Looking for Spinoza – Joy, Sorrow, and the Feeling Brain) in which he quotes Spinoza and his Conatus/Ethics, Part III: “Each thing, as far as it can by its own power, strives to persevere in its being” and “the striving by which each thing strives to persevere in its being is nothing but the actual essence of the thing.” Having said that, it’s not the outside that matters. It is you. The matter is you. Welcome!
