This nightmare is a mystical empiricist. Does that make sense? Illogically, in a contradictory manner, probably.
Let me clarify...
I learn best through experience; sometimes firsthand, sometimes vicarious. If it cannot somehow be qualified and quantified, I have a hard time comprehending it. I had to research the different chemicals and what parts of the brain are working when one "feels" love to understand that concept. But I believe in the things that go bump in the night. I have lucky charms and superstitions. When something gets lost, I blame the dwarves that live in my house and follow me around.
This is one of my totems. It always has to stay on top of the headboard because it stands guard while I sleep...At least until I become a vampire and no longer need sleep...;P
