My inner monk was talking to my inner scientist. "Before you lose your mind, go some place where the person who finds it is likely to return it to you."
My inner scientist replied: "But you can never be sure you are sane and many never recognize when sanity has slipped away! How would you know when to seek such helpful companions?"
Replied the monk: "Exactly the problem! You can not wait."
Do not wait for good company. Go find it, preferably, in the company on hand.
