Daniela on our forecast and the last time we connected was some wouldn't thousand and eighteen sedan super excited to have you on our show. How's it going? Wow. Wonderful. As I said, if things are going any better I'd have to be twins. Almost feel a little bit guilty during the shut down during this corona craziness Farrah's it's been just it's amazing unplanned unexpected opportunity to to really pause to really stop to dig in and it's resulted in a lot of creative juices flowing and guy been busier than ever. And meanwhile, so many people in the world are really suffering and really struggling and so my heart goes out to people So you know what we we do, what we can we make the best of every situation and sometimes something that we think is something really negative turns out to be a blessing, the gift, and this that that's what's happening for us loosen our corner of the world's around this whole crazy shutdown thing. Absolutely I think it's been hard time for a lot of people around the world especially in terms of divisiveness, your people, both sides, and there's a lot of. Anxiety stress as well. But I think your services and your support are even more needed right now as you very. Profoundly, teach people how to breathe correctly and properly and well. So I think it's a very opportune moment validity to. For this interview I was hoping to start from very beginning. Maybe tell us where did you grow up and what was life as a kid for? Well, you know I was the kid who in the school yard was organizing all the breath holding competitions. You know I can remember we we play with hyperventilating and then like squeezy. Almost pass out and you know just. Playing with the plane with the graph I since I was raised in new Bedford Massachusetts Which is where Moby Dick you know there's a whaling capital of the world. Catholic school who? factory Industry Town Garment Factory Textile Mills the cushion it river was right next to. US some very old American Indian tradition in that part of the world. And So the energy is really beautiful in the forest and long the ocean there. but yeah I. turned onto the breath as a little Catholic boy in kindergarten hearing about how God breathed into the nostrils of man the breath of life and man became a living soul and I don't know it just hearing that as a little Feiger kid. I Dunno lit something in me and And just been a missionary for the breath ever since and every job I've ever had and. has kept taking me back to the breath in one way or another until it's the only thing I've really done now for the last forty years is is been a missionary for the breath. So and it's you know forty fifty years ago I felt like a voice crying out in the desert. Breathing what's that breathing a? and. So now it's great that the science is caught up and can now we have understanding on my some of the ancient yoga practices and guys practices and why they work and and what's what's involved in them and So I love that science and spirit meet and the breath is is exactly a perfect place or science and spirituality could meet.
The Birth Of The Greenback
"Stacey next. Jacob Feldstein. Planet money author of money the true story of amid up during a new book. Say I. brought props for us to do the indicator. I say. That's been months. It's been. That guy's been honking hall eight months. I have props came over so I could give you these troughs. Okay. Go ahead and look at them. All right. Okay. So, this is like a really high quality xerox of an old piece of money. THREE DOLLAR BILL RE dollar bill that's really a real thing. There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah.

So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure. This story in like a whole bunch of other like believable stories like this are in your new book money. The true story of a made up thing. This episode of the indicator was produced by Nick.

Moby Dick Chapter Eight
"Welcome back to another episode of Church history. Last week we were talking about the pulpit that Latin Word Putnam, and that object that appears in so many churches. Well, we also find the pulpit, appearing in of all places that great American novel by Herman, Melville none other than moby. Dick Moby Dick has one hundred and thirty five chapters. They have fascinating names like the shark massacre and interesting names, two of the chapters in particular come early in the book that have great names chapter nine is entitled the sermon. Sermon, Chapter Eight is entitled The pulpit so this is Melville's description of a pulpit of a fabled new. England church, it's sort of a conglomerate picture that Melville is putting together. And of course they are about to go out to sea questing after the great white whale, and before they go, all the sailors will show up that. Sunday in church to hear that sermon before they're sent off to see, and they might not come back again well. This is chapter eight on the pulpit. Let's read Melville's description. He tells us how he's sitting there. In the Pew of the Church and Father Maple comes in, and then he starts walking towards the pulpit. Melville says like most old fashioned pulpits. It was a very lofty one and since. Our stairs to such a height would by its long angle with the floor seriously constrict the already small area of the chapel, the architect it seemed had acted upon the hint of Father Maple, and finish the pulpit without a stairs, substituting a perpendicular that is straight up and down side ladder like those used in mounting ship from a boat at sea. The wife of a whaling captain had provided the chapel with a handsome pair of red ropes for this latter. Halting for an instant at the foot of the ladder, and with both hands, grasping the ornamental knobs of those red ropes, Father Maple cast a look upwards, and then with a truly sailor, like, but still reverential dexterity hand over hand, mounted the steps as if ascending the main top of his vessel. Melville continues, nor was the pulpit itself without a trace of the same seat taste that had achieved the latter. It's paneled front was in the likeness of shifts, bluff bows and the holy. Bible rested on a projecting piece of scroll work fashioned after a ship's fiddle headed beak. What could be full of more meaning Melville asks. For the pulpit. Is Ever this Earth's foremost part? All the rest comes in its rear. The pulpit leads the world from thence. It is the storm of God's quick. Wrath is first descried, and the bow must bear the earliest brunt. From thence it is the god of breezes. Fair or foul is I invoked for favourable winds. Yes, yes, the world's a ship on its passage out not a voyage complete, and the pulpit is its prow. Well, that's from the pen of Melville. What a fascinating line he gives us. Did you hear it in that last paragraph I read and the pope it leads the world. Well. That's chapter eight. The pulpit from Melville's great novel. Some have called I. Know Dr Sprawl often called it the great American novel Moby Dick or The whale.

Bathsheba Demuth: Environmental Historian
"This episode of is on Conservation I spoke with author and environmental historian Bethsheba. Demuth Demuth is an assistant professor at Brown University who specializes in the intersection between humans. Ecosystems ideas in history the work that I do as an environmental historian is broadly focused on the North American and Russian Arctic and particularly the relationships between people and animals and people in Ecosystems. More broadly over the past two hundred years or so. We talked over. Skype demuth was in fairbanks as the professor was performing research for her new book. Her first book is titled Floating Coast and Environmental History of the Bering Straits. Npr called it. A quote deeply studied deeply felt book that lays out a devastating complex history of change notes. What faces us now and dares us to imagine better in quote as we proceed and get into this interview. I will note that I spoke with Professor Demuth while she was at the university library so it can be a little loud in the background at times. It's a busy place. I can promise you however that this will be one of the most compelling and interesting accounts of the history of whaling that you had ever you look so cold yes. It's a little chilly up here. What's the what's the weather like right? Now it's actually a pretty Balmy day today. It's about twenty degrees. It was about fifty degrees colder here last week. You've you've draw the line pretty much anything around ten. Just can't do it for me of all the things that makes this whole conversation. That much more interesting demuth was actually drawn to the Arctic in her young adult life and even lived in the Yukon for two years. And yes doing all the things that you're imagining right now tracking bears hunting. Caribou FISHING SALMON. And yes even. Husky Mushin Dog sledding and no. I'm not making that up. She's that for real your your first journeys out there. If I understand right was your running dog sled yes so when I was eighteen I decided to take a gap year as we. Now call them although they weren't really called then And went to a little community north of the Arctic Circle in the Yukon territory to be a dog handler which is basically an apprentice to somebody who has a dog team and I knew nothing about sled dogs. When I moved up there I was eighteen so I thought I knew something about things but I really didn't. And that was my first introduction to the Arctic. Okay and how long you said you do that for two years. Yes do you. Do you still remember how to do it? I mean I. It's kind of like riding a bicycle except in this particular case. You're working with dogs so you can remember how to do the physical pieces of it but you also need to have a relationship with animals. You're working with so. I'm sure that if I had a team and I spent a lot of time with them would would all come back because I would be making that relationship with dogs but I'd like a bicycle. You can't just grab one and go right right. Yeah that makes sense You don't have to get to know your bike. I right I probably ended up working appear because my dad read me too much Jack London when I was a kid. So there's definitely a literary connection in there now. I could do a really poor job of basically giving it a synopsis of the Book. Or I'm sure it would be much more articulate coming from you Tell us a little bit more about the Soviet whaling And more specifically what you found so fascinating a about that topic. Yes the book that I published. Just this past fall called floating coast looks at basically the the past two hundred years or so along the Bering Strait both the Russian Arctic and in the US Arctic. It's a it's a two country history but because it's an environmental history in some ways it's a history of no country because it's looking at processes an an animals that don't really matched onto nation state borders and the the the project is kind book ended no Pun intended by could have two episodes of large scale whaling the first one being in the nineteenth century for market whalers capitalist wailers most of them coming from New England in fact some of them from where I now live in Providence. Who were coming up to kill bowhead. Whales for oil for lamp oil mostly and then the book closes with a couple of chapters about Soviet whaling in the twentieth century. Which in many ways is just the socialist analog to the to the capitalist wailing in that it is Quite excessive it kills whales far outside their capacity to to reproduce. And keep keep up with the demand and those kind of frames of the book in some ways. Show the things that I found really interesting about this part of the world as a historian. Who's interested in the ways that people's ideas influence the environments? They live in and vice versa. Which is that. It's a it's a place that has a very similar ecology on both sides of the Bering Strait. If you drop down on the peninsula or the seward Peninsula Chukchi Peninsulas in Russia and the seward Peninsula's in Alaska. He can't really tell one from the other right. And let's you know the place extremely well. Because the the flora and the fauna in geology are really comparable but of course in the twentieth century. It gets split by these two big economic ideologies that imagine each other in opposition. Which is you know. Capitalism and socialism. So it's kind of a natural experiment to see how these two ways of managing environments in some sense that the Soviet Union the United States brought with them interact with Arctic species and in the case of Wales they do it very similarly which is more or less trying to kill everywhere they possibly can ya. It's like it's kind of shocking especially when you talk about like as a concern of how many whales are being impacted or what that's doing to the ecosystem comes up that the answer kind of always came back to will. Don't worry. Technology will save us from. That will deliver a positive outcome. Okay can you elaborate on that? Yes this was one of the really interesting commonalities I found between two groups of whalers who were operating hundred years apart from each other or more and in two extremely different cultural and economic contexts is at the end of nineteenth century moby. Dick STYLE TALL SHIP. Whalers call me. Ishmael an ordinary seaman before the mast on the good ship check. What found out a man on Christmas Day of the year? Eighteen forty four on a thousand days. Voight very aware that when they entered a new population of Wales and a piece of the ocean that they hadn't been hunting in before that they would they called. Wailing it out or fishing it out that they would kill off an enormous number of the animals that were that were available locally and that they were doing this and getting further and further from home. So they're aware and using the word extinction by the end of the nineteenth century but at the same time as they're talking about extinction they're basically saying well if we put in place some technological Improvements if our ships get faster. If we're more able to navigate around the sea ice will be able to still catch these whales and there was this kind of belief that because Wales were really intelligent. And all of the whalers nudists and talk about this in detail that there were more whales. They were just shy or had gotten smart and were hiding in new places. So there's actually a couple of lines in Moby Dick Melville talks about you know the whales are just hiding behind the Arctic Sea ice and then after the Second World War the Soviet Union sort of follows the same pattern in that they have very sophisticated marine biology by that point in many ways the the research that so the marine biologist or doing is ahead of what's happening in the United States particularly when it comes to studying ways that whales are social animals and able to communicate vocally with each other They're they're way ahead of what's happening in English. Speaking Countries but at the same time as an aware that that the populations of wheels are dropping but at the same time. They're convinced that as long as they just kind of keep putting more technology online. They're going to be able to keep killing

"moby dick" Discussed on Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen
"Imagine trying to adapt moby Dick for the movies just turning its adventure story into a decent screenplay would be hard enough. let alone all the philosophical acids and social commentary and Digression on the Zoology of Wales but in the early nineteen fifties ray Bradbury who at the time was a young writer not yet the world famous master of fantasy and science fiction was asked to adapt moby Dick for the movies.

"moby dick" Discussed on CarCast
"But one of them was nine thirty five and it was Moby Dick. And it was unclear if there was more than one Moby, Dick or to Moby Dick. That's the nine thirty five put the really long tail on it. Yeah. Now, we saw it at festival speed at Goodwood or we saw a clone, right? Because we were taking pictures of the wheels, and yeah, I don't know. I, I don't know if it was a clone or not. I've got a feel like me. I don't know. But I was like, I so I should of this guy was selling. I, I said, how much is? Moby Dick, and he was like two million dollars. And I said that sounds cheap for Moby Dick 'cause that's probably one of the most legendary nine thirty five ever made. And then he went. Yeah. Well, the lady owns it the widow who owns it actually looked into it. And now she went six million dollars. And I was like okay that sounds about right. Yeah. But where did two million from it came from his mouth. Right. But her brain said, six million bucks, and then I was like, okay and then at some point he said, I'll just get yes. Sheet of paper with all the prices for the cars, and I'll just Email it to Nate, and you can look at it and I was like, I was in New York and like date sent to me, and I was trying to look at it, and I got down to Moby Dick, and I was like he had a pencil. They like scratched out or whatever, and I was like, is that's a four million dollars. I couldn't really tell. Yeah, I don't know. I feel like if you'd like to sell a car for four or six million dollars, you should probably just get your word processor out type in a few things. I like the old school. Handwritten part? But when you're right in the number and sometimes it gets a little confusing and then it made me wonder cereal. Do it for you. Yeah. Then it made me wonder I don't know what that cars worth like, I, maybe apparently, they don't know either between two and six. Right. So so they're saying did you on your travels? Did you get any Indy? Five hundred updates. Did you see the qualifying for Indy five hundred? No, I was running around swamped everywhere. I was passionate. You're telling me, yes, I'm passionate qualified on the pole and his I think it's a four lap average he did to twenty nine point nine nine two. And if you think about like the top three or four, they're all within like a tenth or two of each other, and the whole field of thirty cars qualified. I don't think it was three seconds apart between all of it's gonna be exciting..
"moby dick" Discussed on Chapo Trap House
"Compete with the capitalist west to industrialize a much. More compressed timeframe, and there's really only way one way that happens, and that is with a lot of death. Also, I think who actually beat the Nazis a good one to throw in. Yeah. Yeah. The Soviet Union defeat to Third Reich in World War Two, and they lost a lot of people twenty million people doing it. I think it's fair to concede that like, you know, no state project ever invented has ever been worthy of of the people or whatever, but some are better than others. Some have a more virtuous record than others. And I don't think capitalism comes out on top of that. Yeah. Those like the the easiest one is like again because they're able to identify like Stalin and Mao and their regimes and all the people they killed whereas like capitalism because it's bigger and more diffuse gets away without any, you know, official like death counter body count. But like, yeah. Just look into like what the British empire. Did you know? Not even even the same contemporaneous or were too. There's a Fenglin Bengal over three million people. And when they and largely is a result of British policies that that that, you know, under the argument that well, we have to re re distribute things towards the war effort that was the argument anyway, killed three million people when somebody told Churchill about he goes, well, if it's so bad how come Gandhi isn't dead. And the other thing is like the Cold War. That was led by America against communism in the latter. Half of the twentieth century involved as we've discussed many times on this show explicit genocides and the explicit collaboration with literal former Nazis to do it and carry it out. So again, like it's just the easiest answer is. Yes, even if you take that all his as true and written about Stalin, and how evil he was you're getting you're being a little too confident about the people arguing against it on their side. And how benevolent and you know, freedom loving it's been to the human history. But at the same time don't be weird, and however tank, you are when you're having conversations with people who have spent their whole, I, you know, understanding the world as this very specific narrative. Just dial down the tankeea by like ten degrees. And don't be weird. This is a sort of a we get a lot. Of these questions sort of like condensing a lot of them together. This one is just straight up a book recommendations outside our book, of course, paperback out in October. What are y'all reading lately and people are asking for literature, specifically just finished Moby, Dick, which is a mazing. Really? Yeah. It's a good book. It's such a good God. It's also one of those things that I thought it wasn't actually a good book. And I thought it was just like, you know, about men on the sea and. Whatever it is everything it's about America. It's an I thought it was going to be you know, gay, but it's like gay. So I was delighted by it's just like homo erotic, and to some in the whole thing is really good. It's a book that really contains everything. And as you said it really is about America like the the peak quad the ship is kind of condensed like version of America in the world. The thing is the pitfall that people get with Moby. Dick is like the first hundred pages or so is whatever one thinks about right? And it's like, call me Ishmael mazing opening chapters where you know, the he he meets quake, and they this hotel room together. And then there came married. He clutched me in his bridegroom clasp at like, if someone had told me how homo erotic this book was I would have read it so much longer than they signed up with the ship.

"moby dick" Discussed on Writers Who Don't Write
"I noticed that most of your books have to do with like some kind of historical fiction with like a little bit of entry thrown in there, and I just I know that you have like must have anyway, conflict fascination with writers of a couple hundred years back. How did that come to be? I think it's all tied up in that in that same kind of narrative that that I've been talking about, which is that distance that removes that I felt from what it meant to be a writer. And the way I in the my Mary way I interacted with with writers was was reading, and I think my general beating experience was reading the classics. The first book that got me really excited about reading I was I was an early reader, I read, but I think it wasn't until Moby Dick. In high school that I, that I felt serious about reading or that I really wanted to spend my time reading in thinking about what I was reading. So it was really to make myself even more removed from from writers as people. The writers that I most most interacted with were dead writers. Where writers that were writing about people in places that were from a very long time ago, like Caleb Carr and Umberto eco kind of taking that that scholar scholarly material turning into stories. So I think for me, I as I was starting to write, it must have made a lot of sense somewhere in my brain as I was trying to figure out what it meant to write what it meant to be a writer. So kind of look at those writers I had read, look at those writers that I had studied from a scholarly point of view, at least as much as we can call kind of undergraduate scholarship scholarly. It felt like it to me at the time, at least. And kind of try to figure out who they were as people and put them in situations that forced them to kind of present themselves as people not just as as writers because that's one of the disconnects. You feel traveling from from being a scholar of whatever level to being a, a writer about the same people in places. I might know everything there is to know about. Henry Mods longfellow from writing senior thesis about his Dante club, but I wouldn't know the first thing about what he ate for breakfast or what kind of hat he wore or what kind of personality he had. I might know little bit about it, but since the nineteen. Kind of sixties seventies. The English department's started to frown on incorporating end studying exploring who writers were as people right with this kind of umbrella term of new criticism of close reading. We would kind of. Isolate ourselves to the words on the page and and and get a feel like we're cheating if we would look into China, look into the souls of the writers or or try to look into. What the writer intended something to meaning to mean or how it connected to their lives very different than the nineteenth century. In fact, speaking of Moby Dick, I remember when I was in college, I did a little presentation for my seminar class on the reviews of Moby Dick, which by the way, every writer should should read the reviews of Moby Dick that came out when Moby Dick came out. It something probably a lot of us forget whether you love Moby Dick or paid it, or you never read it this, the tower of American literature was it destroyed him..

"I would look at my hands and things that they looked like lizard hands. They looked, they looked alien. They look disgusting and scaly. And I remember saying that to the resident who was admitting me, it McLean that he said, well, are you having any auditory or visual hallucinations? And I said, well, I know it's not true, but my hands look like lizard hands. He wrote down very laboriously visual hallucinations, and I thought, should I argue with him? It's not really a hallucination. If I know it's not true. It's a metaphor. In the same way, Styron acknowledged that his hand wasn't actually paralyzed or dead. This was a metaphor for his own impotence. He was obsessed with what he had to say in his novel, but he couldn't say it deeply wanted to finish it and he drove himself to attempt to finish it.

This is a reading of Herman Melville's classic novel human madness is often times a cunning and most feline thing. When you think at fled, it may have but become transfigured into some still subtler form. Herman Melville also suffered from crippling writer's block. The white page had been his white whale. As for Styron, he felt like all the meaning had drained out of the world. Something had gone horribly wrong with his own mind in no longer belong to him. And he wanted to know why he was interested in his problem too, was very interested in it. Just like Alice, he wanted to find the cause of his own literary illness that used to drive doctors crazy. I think that he became so fascinated with what was going wrong, but it seemed appropriate. He was honoring the importance of Zuma's, so we just got really interested.
