Had a thought - possibility of ideas happening in parts of our brain disconnected from potential body-output, or at least not recorded into memory and with relatively limited influence. Could we know? What would it be to be one of those if they were a thing. But if they have limited potential influence, I think they miss out on at least some of the features, developmentally, we attribute to most forms of intelligence; little experience with causality, and that experience being necessary to train a mind. Unless there were a transfer of trainedness from our main personality. Fascinating idea. But then, if intelligence is just a pattern on states, as I've spoken of before in other writings, perhaps this is not that odd an idea.

Went to a infra-software conference this week. Hung out a bit with a former coworker from DBX. Was nice.
