Never underestimate the value of nonsense. Haha. I think in someways the absurd is a good starting point. At least it's better than opinion. I really love surreal humor like Monty Python and Adventure Time. I noticed my headache would go away after and I would feel more positive and energetic.
I found out why when I saw this quote by John Cleese: "[Monty Python is a critique of] closed systems of thought. ... Systems by which, whatever evidence is given to a person, he merely adapts it. ... Once ... no contrary evidence can come in, I think it is very dangerous."
After programming has been scrambled by a healthy dose of non-sequitur, you can enter into a mode of observation, meditation, or empathy.
In general, seeking consistency while accepting that some areas may remain in uncertainty seems to work for me.
