Mentality at Troynovant:
thoughts on the mind & mental operation,
including dreaming, telepathy, & other speculative powers;
listed by Title

You may find it convenient to sideline mentally any clairvoyant insights, covert language, double meanings, dreaminess, elective affinities, psychological manipulation, seas of monsters, subliminal influence, or other speculative fancies while musing at Troynovant. As the Beatles say in Yellow Submarine,

It's all in your mind.


[On his last meeting with Friedrich Nietzsche, circa 1885-86:]

He was surrounded by an indescribable atmosphere of strangeness, by something that seemed to me completely uncanny. There was something in him which I had not known before, and much that had formerly distinguished him was missing. As if he came from a land where no one else lives.

Erwin Rohde
to Franz Overbeck, 24 January 1889

[Troy: the Greek camp, outside Achilles' tent.]


Achilles will not to the field tomorrow. ...


Why, will he not, upon our fair request,
Untent his person and share the air with us?


Things small as nothing, for request's sake only,
He makes important. Possessed he is with greatness,
And speaks not to himself but with a pride
That quarrels at self-breath. Imagined worth
Holds in his blood such swoll'n and hot discourse
That 'twixt his mental and his active parts
Kingdomed Achilles in commotion rages
And batters 'gainst himself.

William Shakespeare
Troilus and Cressida, 2.3.151, 156-165

[Griffy:] There's nothing more powerful than a soulful sample of th' Delta blues, don't you think?

[Zippy the Pinhead:] I often wish there was a Hell-Hound on my trail!
