Re-imagining pH7

In me, pH7 does not seem to be a fixed value, but is dependent upon the pH of the observer.

As time dilates (e.g. on top of a mountain), my perception of pH7 changes. True pH7 reads as acidity to me when I am dilated.

As time contracts (e.g. below sea level), my perception of pH7 changes. True pH7 reads as alkalinity when I am contracted.

When my brain is slightly too acidic—speaking relatively, i.e. is slightly more acidic than my body—my body reads as alkaline, so I speed time up (serotonin). When time is too fast, and the brain is too acidic, the brain and time are “seeing eye to eye”—but both are mistaken.

When my brain is slightly too alkaline—i.e. slightly more alkaline than my body—my body reads as acidic, so I slow time down (dopamine). When time is too slow, and the brain is too alkaline, again, the brain and time are in alignment—but out of step with the larger world.

In both of these instances, I am out of step with the larger river of time—though in sync with myself. It is as if I have become an eddy.
