The Butcher and the Scientist.

‘Don’t think too much,’ said the Butcher to the Scientist.

‘But that is my nature,’ said the Scientist to the Butcher.

‘It’s no ones nature. I feel your mind exploding,’ the Butcher explains as he leans forward on the rickety bar stool, edging into the Scientists space.
The Butcher continues, ‘All you do is sit and be. Let the mind stop. Talk and listen to me. It will give your brain a break.’

‘Do you ever think about forward or the future?’ asked the Scientist to the Butcher.

‘No. I just stay in the here and now. I allow the rest to happen,’ said the Butcher to the Scientist.

‘I don’t think I can do that. My mind has two thousand wheels and cogs working as machines of different thoughts.’

‘You can do that. You have to want to. I can talk your mind silly with my Butcher’s philosophy. You have to do it yourself,’ rattled the Butcher to the Scientist.

‘Ok. Then I diminish all in my brain?’ asked the Scientist to the Butcher.

The Butcher turned and spoke to the Scientist, ‘That’s it. All you need is one wheel, one cog.’
