the conspiratorial homunculus. or a peek inside my brain.

no. my brain has not become a burning candle. but as i sat and stared the candle wick i wondered if combustion, transubstantion and transmogrification were all synonymous ( obviously ignoring the christian doctrine and merely considering the narrow definition of transubstantiation as "Conversion of one substance into another." ).

 

and what i was most interested at that particular moment was not the answer to the question per se, but rather why my brain enjoys playing these little games with me - knowing full well that with no power and internet access and no proper dictionary that i'll sit and mull over the question endlessly. even likely dreaming about it.

 

sometimes i suspect there's a conspiratorial homunculus in my head that simply enjoys confounding the "real" me with mundane questions that are unarguably pointless.
