Dave, you are talking to yourself again…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s wrinkled old black and white snapshot is the one of me being punched on the forehead by Jackson Pollock outside a New York bar in 1952.

I just heard on the radio that apparently the more intelligent you are the more likely you are to talk to yourself… How very reassuring.
I have a theory about why we should do this.
‘Have you Dave?’
Yes, I have Dave. You see, us bright people have somehow realised, albeit subconsciously, a fundamental thing about space, and time, and the universe.
‘Have we?’
Oh yes, we have twigged that this thing that we inhabit, which we cheerfully call ‘reality’, is really not quite what it seems.
No, we Earthlings are all just characters in an enormously complicated soap opera.
‘A soap opera? No that can’t be right…’
Yes it is. It’s one created by super beings; they sit (if they actually do sit) around, up in their super environment, watching our every move and hanging on our every word – especially when we are alone… Our soliloquies…
‘Our soliloquies? Really?…’
Yes Dave. Oh, and how they must chuckle and guffaw, if that’s what super beings do, at our pathetic and silly daily antics.
‘Hm, I don’t like the sound of that Dave.’
No, it is a bit unsettling isn’t it? But it’s great when you learn to live with it – you can feel they are watching and you can ham it up big time.
‘Ham it up?’
Yes, why not?
So, the next time you find you are chatting to yourself, don’t worry, you must make the most of it; you are just a jester for a distant highly intelligent audience.
‘Just a jester?’
Yes, think of those super beings enjoying your life – you could be quite famous and popular in another realm.
Yes Dave, realm…
