to sort false from true

John Holbo is working on the Dr.Seuss-inspired book On Beyond Zarathustra and I guess not only the fans of Friedrich Nietzsche will enjoy it.

"I'll go up the mountain
to sort false from true.
To sort out What's What
and to sort out Who's Who?
And which Wozamawhich
is the Best What to do."

Even as illusion gradually become my reality, the absurd yearning to sort false from true still seems to persist. IMO life should have more respect than that for the elderly.

The one thing I would like to be able to do is get a good sleep - sleep as well as I did when I was younger. Every problem with getting older follows from that imho ...

There is no doubt that sleep is important to my mental state and as I've gotten old I don't feel like I get nearly as much deep sleep at night as I did when I was younger. Incorporating a fairly vigorous daily exercise routine has helped me. I don't know how much, or even if, it slows atrophy of the brain but I do know that when you get to the point where you can no longer deny decreasing mental ability it really really sucks.
