Do you ever sit and stare into space?

I just caught myself sitting and staring into space. I was "MyLotting," but I was really just sitting and doing no typing. I checked my thoughts and realized I was having an imaginary dialogue with one of my parents from the preschool in Berkeley. We were discussing whether to go hiking with their family alone, or as a group with other families. I think I stare into space pretty often. But I don't think I'm spacing out. Earlier, I found myself wondering if I should do a MyLot post on Zeno's Paradox. What do you think about when you might appear to others to be "spacing out"?

You should do a post about Zeno...Especially the Arrow Paradox and how it relates to the Double Slit experiment (Which seems to provide laboratory proof for it) and there should be a follow-up post on whether the Ancients possessed far more knowledge than we gave them credit for or if he were simply a time-traveler---which would be the same thing because we still don't have time-travel...As far as you know... Or did Zeno have contact with Aliens?

I think Zeno's insight came from wiping his tush and get it 1/2 cleaner every time he wiped. In an instant, he realized that he couple never actually reach the "limit," and in that moment, calculus and Zeno's paradox were born.

I often do this when I wake up (it's always been this way even in my childhood) . . . that is if I don't have to rush off anywhere that morning. I could be thinking about a bunch of things. But if I'm in shock or serious anger, I might "zone out" and I know I replay the scenario over and over about what made me feel this way.
