Polar Bear, Expressed

I am a great one for cooking up theories, which tend to sit, untested, in my mind. Sit, however, isn’t exactly the right verb. An idea that doesn’t come out bounces from wall to wall in my brain. It ricochets from point to point to conclusion again and again. If you imagine a theory thrashing around like this for a long time, the verb you get might be closer to fester.

Remember the polar bear who used to swim compulsively back and forth in his pool? Something like that.

This blog is in part an experiment in letting these theories out. Perhaps this will open some space for more new ideas to come in.
