as a living being I am a dynamic loop
a cascade/cycle of self-organized patterns

my vulnerability to stressors
and (over)stimulaton
is a function of the personal boundary
that I cultivate
on both the physical and the mental-emotional front

this brings me to Todd Becker and the idea of ‘stress oscillation:’
“periodic intense stressors build antifragile resilience
but chronic stress w/o rest & recovery only wears us down
by alternating bw/ extremes of
intensity & rest, feast & fast, luxury & poverty,
we become more resilient
bc/ we increase the range of responsiveness
to environmental variability”
