I created this term to describe a behavior I noticed that nobody else seems to have made reference to. I eavesdrop on conversations and I have noticed this in my own and it is really annoying. I believe that conversation should be solution oriented, you recognize the problem, solve it, and get on with it. If you can’t solve the problem and you can’t learn anything new about it you stop talking about it. You don’t bring it up again unless there is no information, things have gotten worse, or their is a possible new solution or experiment that can be performed.
But this is not how people talk, there narrative is whiny, it clings to the problem it circles around it like a turd that refuses to flush. It wallows in emotional morbidity, mourning the existence of the problem. Revolving around the problem is not the solution, and you will never arrive at the solution through that verbal and mental behavior. Srsly, it makes me want to start slapping people with a shovel.
“Excuse me young man. Do you have those delicious gluten free, vegan, fair traded, organic, non-gmo chips?”
“No mam, they didn’t come in today, I think they are having problems with distribution.”
“Are you sure? I came all the way to get those. They are in a yellow bag. They are usually right here. Would they be in the back? They are so yummy! It is so sad that they aren’t here. The other store didn’t have them either. … little yellow bag….crunch…nummers..”
*It became necessary as we were recording the philosophy of Joxua Luxor/Joxua MourningStar/Shivah Solomon to define his terms as we found that he re-appropriates, redefines and creates his own thought technology in the form of vocabulary which is consistent with natural linguistic processes common in sophisticated philosophy and necessary to convey understanding.
