The eyes of the species could see where we were going but the blind and deaf brainstem remained firmly in control with its veto power over the adrenal glands, heart, lungs and cortex tissue in general.

Before we do anything, we always build some kind of tracks. This can apply to just about anything. War, for instance. Say you want to start dropping some bombs on your competitor or maybe shoot up some enemies of the state with your cool missiles from a battleship chilling in the gulf. Hey go for it, no biggie, let the boys have their fun. And hey, lets get some good footage, send a decent cinematograher over there and give me some art!

Lets get back on track. If you are going to bomb anyone for a sustained amount of time, then there will have to be some money changing hands, each bomb costs millions, so, before an invasion can happen, the banks will tip $INC²'s hand and before you knew it we were in Iran.

Our appetites ride on the tracks of our previous behavior. Momentum and inertia keep us on track. Our intestinal flora is a garden which digests 90% of the food we consume. Our flora become the tracks of our appetite. So much of our behavior can be relegated to the realm of the unconscious. What can be more primal than eating? The trick is to build new tracks. This is how we get over the hump, it is by building new tracks. It is the first 2 or 3 weeks that are the toughest but once the new tracks are layed and spiked, then the train of our being has a new direction, a new horizon, a new dream.
