I read one recently too... 'we become our memories.' I think they both refer to the universal law that "you are what you think." So if you don't like what your memories have turned you into, perhaps your imagination can turn it around by seeing beyond the memories, to the greater truth and higher potential we all instinctively know we have.

That Bill Hicks skit was about how the evening news only reports bad drug trips like "Today a young man on acid jumped to his death because he thought he could flly." You never hear the reporter say " Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration , that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively , there is no death , life is only a dream , and we are the imagination of ourselves . Here's Tom with the weather ."
Besides psychedelic drugs what has inspired you all to have realizations like that young man on the news ?
For me , Neil DeGrasse Tyson talking about the source of ourselves as stardust . Listening to John Coltrane Quartet with Thelonius Monk Live . Staring at a Jackson Pollack painting in a museum , up close and farther back. The web of life as described by people like Dawkins and Steven J Gould.
