Pneumatics

Describe the one who got away.

Right, well – I guess that would be the Pneumatic Diner. Not just in the sense of a business endeavor, or profession, or even as a community (not to undermine the value of any of these aspects), but more that I feel like I have lost a lot of ground in regard to my personal sense of self…

I am very happy to have a new kitchen to play in, and frankly – this new kitchen is considerably nicer – holds more future potential than the Diner had. But…my spirit is somewhat broken. Again, I am not trying to solicit anyone’s sympathy here, just trying to work through the shit for myself.

I have been a bit gloomy as of late, and just don’t know how to snap out of it…

& as far as boys go, I decided this evening, while debating with father, that I won’t settle for anyone, unless they are skilled in both dancing & camping, and it is a rare few that know both those modes of operandi, with any level of proficiency. So—whatever.

The pneumatics (“spiritual”, from Greek πνεῦμα, “spirit”) were, in gnosticism, the highest order of humans, the other two orders being psychics and hylics. The pneumatic saw himself as escaping the doom of the material world via the secret knowledge. Outsiders could only know these secrets by joining a gnostic group. To be a gnostic is to believe in three planes of existence: the pure unknown (demiurge), the material world of coitus and comfort, and the pure spiritual realm of ascension or escape.
