Of Two Minds

Can you be of two minds? Can you be Bruce Wayne during the day, and then become Batman at night? Can you take orders during the day, and pursue autotelism (doing things for their own sake), at night? People definitely do it. You know that one guy at work, the one with all the tattoos... he's a bartender on the weekends and a coder during the week. I also remember a biophysicist who also had a critically acclaimed indie-rock band on the side. And, oh yeah, didn't Albert Einstein produce his Annus Mirabilis papers while working as a technical examiner at the Swiss Patent Office?
