rabbit holes and psychological empowerment

Among the ways of "dealing with it," my own favorite is to recognize that a "experience of the arbitrary nature of every category that humanity has ever and will ever make"  frees one to become a maker and reviser of categories oneself, to be a creative individual in one's own right.  Cf Writing Descartes, Paths to story telling as life, and Cultures of ability.
