they sit around and talk philosophy.
More specifically, they talk about “cosmic inexistence,” or something like that, I’ve now forgotten the phrase. The backstory of this is that I just dropped off a paper with my philosophy professor, who was just sitting around a table with two other philosophy profs talking about cosmic order. I thought they were having a meeting. They weren’t. They were just talking philosophy. They invited me to join in the conversation – I promptly declined said invitation, considering that I have zero knowledge of what they discussed subject matter (as evidenced by the fact that I can’t actually remember what they were talking about. This occurred 15 minutes ago.)
but just talking about theory as part of your job? what an awesome life, right?
