When I take in a novel view, there seems to be a fleeting span of time in which I can evaluate the subject in a unique, valuable (if not somehow objective), frame of mind, that quickly gets polluted with consciousness.
I spend a lot of mental effort trying to make that space available.
Do you understand what I mean? Do you experience the same?
I tend to need time to puzzle through things for a bit before I can really start understanding the consequence of new ideas.
