When I was a little kid, I used to lie on edges and look at the world upside down.
I'd lie on the floor and imagine the ceiling was the floor. I liked the strangeness of it.
Thinking about things upside down seems to be a good exercise for humans. Our brains have rooms that seldom get explored. They're good rooms, bigger inside than out. When we leave these rooms, we take something with us-- perspective.
And perspective changes our world.
I forget this sometimes. I'll tell you how that works out. Not so well. So I made this little Poppet to remind me. This is the sort of thing that helps me make sense of things that don't. And it seems a really good reason to make a Poppet.
If you try some upside-down viewing, or other brain exercises, tell me about it. I really want to know.
Have some fun.
