On Navel Gazing: Channelling Jack Handy

So I was gazing at my navel yesterday and as often happens, my mind began to wander. I thought about the way my mind often wanders when navel gazing and realized that I frequently think about the act of navel gazing itself. When I do, it turns out that there are roughly four categories of thought that pop up: on the form of the navel, on the contents of the navel, on the origin of the navel, and on the meaning of the navel. I meditated for a while on how interesting it was that I was now reflecting on thinking about considering navels.

Then I thought to myself, "Well, enough of this. I need to get back to work. Lots of philosophy that needs taking care of."
