Block 3

I have to ask - what did you all make of it? I'm completely frustrated by it and have just had a minor rant about it on the OU forum.

Ah yes, Block 3, I think you are at the legendary 'blue pill/red pill' stage of the course:

it's up to you whether you decide to go down the rabbit hole, but once you do there's no going back!

The ideas are fascinating... But it feels like I'm being fed a third, 'bullshit-flavoured' pill. The incoherence of the block structure is frustrating. I also feel as if I'm racing through the material in order to keep up, whilst missing out on key, 'big picture' elements of what we're supposed to be able to appreciate.

On the red pill, blue pill point... You've reminded me that I still need to get a copy of Alice in Wonderland.

ah no don't worry about that feeling, all will become clear. you are being affected by the after-effects of block 2 is all that is happening. Block 2 made you think, and now it's like you're still trying to do 75 miles an hour with your brain but your body is on the motorway exit slip road already... think less, just keep your eye on the road and you will be fine.

Well, I've done okay on TMA05, so perhaps I should carry on being oblivious!
