I'm one and a half weeks into my current rotation, and it seems to have had a pretty profound effect on my thought patterns.
Some thoughts I had today:
"Hmm, this reminds me of the conflict between Hegelian and Marxist dialectics."
"He's caught in a classic Batesonian double bind!"
Neither of those sentences would have meant anything to me two weeks ago. I bought a six-pack of beer on the way home.
