I enjoyed WRATE’s Big Day Out. It was such a joy to have some time to reflect on what matters in teaching.
Oh, Wellington, the beautiful land of literature talks that are easy to get to. (I feel weird drawing Toby while Toby is drawing but I guess there’s something pleasantly meta about it.) My spelling is abysmal. I want paper to have a spell check.
I read an article on extended cognition and have been delighting in the idea that we could get our consciousness on things or that objects could be thinking but we may not recognise it as thinking. It’s not a new idea and as long as I don’t dwell on the objects in my life as enslaved sentient creatures but instead just objects with their own possible inner world, that’s kind of cool.
Also, I was so tired last night when I made this that I called it ‘extended consciousness’. I’m going to leave the mistake as a quirk of my comics having a life of their own as lame and sentimental and crazy as that is.
