Larry begins discussing his life as a foster child. This episode focuses on an overtly in-it-for-the-money Eagle Rock family, and then describes his introduction to his second official foster home, where life came to make a modicum of sense - but only a modicum. The saga will continue in Part 2, Episode 12. And, of course, there’s a little further exploration of consciousness near the outset.

We are spiritual beings, but what is a spirit? Nothing ethereal, but rather, embodied - at least for now, and in the form of a human being. Beliefs, opinions, perceptions: these are all modes of conscious experience, but what about moods? They are, too. Allen Ginsberg recommends that you, “notice what you’re thinking.” MoFo did this while looking at a drainage spout at age 10, and again while out for a run back in 1998. What’s it like to regard yourself as “a spiritual being having a human experience”? For a dose of existential angst, check out Shirley Jackson’s, “The Lottery.”
