We’ve Got The Whole Wide World (In Our Heads),
We’ve Got The Whole World (In Our Heads),
We’ve Got The Whole World In Our Heads.
This homage to an old hymn gets weird rapidly after verse one, so let’s end it there.
Question: Is the whole world in our heads?
Answer: Depends on what you mean by “in our head”.
Let me explain, using this Highly Scientific Diagram of how we experience the world:
Not only is everyone doing it, they’re talking about it a lot too:
“Just breathe”… “Focus on your breath”… “Breathe your way out of a panic attack”… “Our most powerful weapon against anxiety is our breath”…”BREATHE YOU FOOL, BREATHE, QUICK, THEY’RE COMING, WE HAVEN’T GOT MUCH TIME”
I’ve heard all of these so often lately.
Each time, it seems almost insulting to be told that “breathing” is the solution to my problems.
I mean, I breathe literally all the time. I do it in my sleep. What more do these breath-obsessed zealots want?!
