Lazy Brains

Intellectual sloth feels so comfortable.  No decisions of consequence have to be made.  Bullet-point life, followed like a punch-list, is so much easier than logical responsibility.

Substituting complacency for fulfillment, a mind can be kept comfortably numb.  Keep curiosity to a minimum.  Celebrate the smallest event on the punch-list that can be considered even remotely close to an achievement.  

Curiosity persistently throbs in your brain, though.  Dreams play solutions to questions you won't work out in the day. It's under your skin.

The difference between being alive and just going through life lies in satisfying curiosity.  There's a satisfying click in your mind when you know.  There you go.
