I often have difficulty sleeping at night, as my mind doesn’t like shutting off at the same time as my body. So instead of falling into a blissful slumber, I will toss and turn while my brain performs mental gymnastics. Several weeks ago, I was lying in bed thinking about the intellectual process–my intellectual process, I should say–and the idea for a Venn diagram popped into my mind. I opened my notebook, jotted down some words, and then (thankfully) fell asleep. The diagram below is an attempt to capture the agony and ecstasy that comes along with my daily pursuit of clarity and wisdom.
