And while we’re on it, think about the double layers that lie in the meaning of the word “sick” also. Consider US teen movies, where yes, “That’s sick, man!“ can be descriptive language to mark something as refutable – but also as something otherworldly, phenomenal, unexpected, of grandeur, impressive. One could go as far as to say there lies a feeling of healthy envy in it, a desire to experience the intense emotions that mark something as not normal, as “sick”.
One might even go as far as to describe these feelings as longing – a feeling that ultimately centers us in the present, making us aware of what we wish for, whether in bed at night, on a hike, on a class trip away from home, standing at the cashier, looking back at the head of the one you long for. It’s what we desire, even if parts of it are close. But, again, what we might never forget in all of this is one thing: In longing and lovesickness lie no uncertainties. We already know what we are looking for.
