Hi, I'm Dan.

As far as I can tell... last summer I figured out I'm a cartoon of ADD and went down the rabbit hole with neuropsychology.
I intellectually got that there is no solid self and had some sort of A+P no self-experience.

My meditator friend told me it might be Stream Entry. I had never hear of that. I googled it and thought it was that because I was thinking very specifically and disconnectedly about the 3 fetters. I wasn't trying to claim high attainments, I was just encountering everything for the first time. 

I called around to see if I should get a brainscan. My little bro freaked out and got me committed. 

blah blah blah, now I made a thing. It's called The Dang Lantern Podcast. Here's the spotify link - it's elsewhere too and coming everywhere soon!

I don't doubt it! That was super intense, and I didn't figure out that you have to talk about this stuff differently, so I got surprised that I couldn't explain it. I could see getting snapped into psychosis. Not me in this case. Manic behaviour? Sure. Weirdo? Always. Psychosis? Absolutely not. I was meditating with a buddy when the cops came to my house. They were so friendly and told me I seemed fine, and that I'd be in and out. Didn't even cuff me. Had some nice email exchanges with them after. 

It was pretty silly. Basically, if you say that a family member is a danger to themselves or others, you can fill out what's called a form 1 and get a mandatory check. I try not to air my laundry about this but what he wrote on there wasn't true, and he has a history of stunts like this.

I enjoyed the first two episodes of your podcasts.  I particularly enjoyed the blue grassy song at the end of the second podcast.  Keep them coming and stay weird!  We need more people in the world like you.  Do you have any songs on other platforms?     I am so sorry the sister was eaten by the snake in the pet store.

Thank you. I have one album called "No Fun Intended" on Spotify, and another just on Bandcamp called "Not for Kids Really".

Someone mentioned MUSIC??!! emoticon Welcome welcome dear sir! Can't open spotify, as I have it not, but can open bandcamp. Funny lad you emoticon and you certainly look like Ringo Starr! 

If you stay for a while and find out how to join us in The Bar of Last Resort then you might even figure out that we love to collaborate and make songs together in our non-stop 24/7 gigging DhO Band emoticon

I liked the story. Had me laughing.

I enjoyed your story interacting with the hospital staff and the therapist.

Thanks for sharing.

Oh no, the "solid self" is definitely true emoticon

Is yours broken or something? Have you tried turning it off then on again?

If that doesn't work, maybe he needs an expert to debug it.

I'm working on it! Maybe someone can stick a paperclip in my ear to reboot?

The part about being naive reminds me of when an autistic guy calling himself Radioactive Richard decided to split one single atom at home in the kitchen because he was nerdily fascinated about the science of it. When he wrote about it openly, sharing his "how to", he got the feedback (from me and several others) that authorities probably wouldn't be okay about it. He couldn't believe it. After all, it was just one atom, and every single ingredient used in the process was acquired legally. So he called the radiation protection authority and told them and then said "that's okay, right?", whereupon he found his home totally surrended by police cars the very next moment. Ooops. 

The news articles spread all over the world informed the readers that "no fatal levels of radiations were found in the neighborhood". I bet he did it, split just one atom.

By the way, I once wrote a love song to Spock in a very similar style as your tunes but without the whole classy accompanying music thing around it.
