Mindset and the Abyss
This section is supposed to create a significant number of questions for you, make you question your existence, and generally cause you to doubt yourself. That is on purpose.
I got your self-esteem up a bit, but now I am about to show you the complexity that resides in the darkness.
Good news is we don't need to learn it, just know it is there.
Again, don't take notes, don't worry too much about knowing what is going on, just do what I say, think about what I want you to think about, and try not to worry about gazing into the abyss, because remember what they say about the abyss...
Gaze not into the abyss, lest you become recognized as an abyss domain expert, and they expect you keep gazing into the damn thing.— Nick Mathewson (@nickm_tor) May 4, 2017
