I told the soldier about my idea/memory last night and he listened intently. “What do you make of that?” I asked.
He told me an intensely violent story, explaining this is what it conjured up for him and I said, “Hmm.”
“No need. I understand why you’d think that but I was thinking along a different track. I am not sure how this happened but if I could figure it out I may really be on to something. What if I could come up with stuff like this all the time due my unusual experience? It is my experience which means it is my legacy and what if I could tap it like this? LOOK OUT. I might find ways to draw lines all over the place, do you see what I mean?”
“P, I think that I am like a terrestrial planet. I’m dense. And I think you are more like a jovian planet. They’re bigger. The jovian planets are the outer planets and they big, less dense and they are less put together.”
“Yeah, I am rhino,” he explained. “I am one. Dense Son-of-a-bitch. You’re not dense, P. You’re out there. You are a bigger thinker than I am. You are more creative and you’re just not compact like I am.”
I let it go at that. I realize my scheme is harebrained however I bet something comes of it.
Are you primarily Terrestrial or Jovian?
