Bwog Free Association

Bwog breaks down barriers of the mind.

First, there was photosynthesis.

Then, there was instinct.

Next came awareness.

And last came Mo Bamba.

Today, Bwog will dig deep into the mind and explore the psyche. We will use free association—listing terms that come to mind after reading other terms.

Free association was first used in the 15th Century BCE by Saint Augustine after the Battle of Hastings. It has been employed in such diverse scenarios as hurricane relief, venture capital, and baseball. It is not to be confused with free agency or Belarus.

We will present our results in the following format. One person will list a series of terms, and the next person will respond with his or her own series of terms.

As you read, pay attention not only to what’s on the page, but to what’s going through your mind. You may find yourself getting agitated. You might think, “What the heck am I reading?” (Homer 114). These responses are normal. They are examples what doctors like to call capadocian hystaic folliculits. You may find this interesting, but there is no need for alarm.

Anyway, here’s some free free association.
