Ask him out of a lunar eclipse just a minute ago. So great all of that is applicable, and it's interesting to live on this planet long enough to sort of figure out how things work and how it feels in your body. What body feels like in this human realm and to make peace with your mother, your father yourself and understand the proclivities of you know, why you do what you do. Are you still seeker? Are you still finding new things out about yourself? I'm like, oh, yes. All the time. And like, I I my favorite thing in the world is learning like a loving and learning are my two bread and butter. Like, I I think my life will be I will be ready to die the dam like camp. I've learned it all like, I have nothing else to learn. And I hope that never happens. I really every single day is like this process of knowledge and like having the ability to experience things and see things in. Do things that inform my knowledge, and like, my spiritual self and like that it's so like, I think it's a sensual to to our essence as people I never related to people who who have no desire to learn beyond themselves or their own ego. Like that this completely foreign to me because if I had it my way, I just be a floating brain, you know, just like feeling seeing floating brain. But as as chores out does not the deal. So like as as a compromise in a way, I've really found a love for fashion and for like artistic fashion and makeup because I have to compromise an express myself in some way since I can't get what I want.

And I felt like I was d- Katie myself by spitting it also I'd never need use calculus. I have a phone. Like, my kid eventually took the GD and I- legally audited, some some Columbia classes that they didn't know I was attending, you know. And I I just I'm always been really thirsty for knowledge.
