“I apologize in advance — trying to get ahead during a thunderstorm leads to inadvisable choices” “If you have photo epilepsy I hope you already closed this window — didn’t read the e-mail” “Photoepilepsy is part of the biological rebellion against the digital — so are peanut — corn and soy allergies — a neurodivergent and microbiome response to industrialization — personally I suffer from chemical sensitivities” “How do you express your divergence?
