    A new book I read was The Economic Naturalist by Robert Frank. It helped me a bit when I overcame my last emotional crisis. It helped me reviewing human only as homo economicus who each time calculates for short term benefits only for oneself. It didn’t increment my detest level to humanity — I mean: how come? It only made me happy that everything I saw the last weeks were only normal phenomena. Certainly it also made the chaotic Fifth Symphony looked elegant.

    I was wrong about being back soon to Wagner or Stravinsky. In fact, I’m still listening to Nielsen’s Fifth Symphony every morning and evening. I just guess that the wrong thing in me is my tend to be sticky to a meme. Annoying thing, if only you knew what I mean: then I have never liked or loved anything. It’s just memetic stickiness, observed like an obsession, or passion, or love; yet it’s only symbols dancing within my strange loop.
    Yes, I’m in the anti-human mood. Sorry. Now, back to Carl Nielsen.
