I've heard of 'navel maneuvers,' which have very little to do with the navy. . . Smile

Maybe it's akin to "meat gazing"?

Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

I've generally seen it used as a term used to describe lefties. As in, he's a dope-smoking, long-haired, maggot-infested, navel gazing, FM type. Smile

I heard it as "contemplating" one's navel, something hippies did when high.

Introspective, solipsistic, self-absorbed, onanist, ego centric -- not mentalities generally cultivated. I use the term "navel gazing" regularly these days.

I've always taken it to mean someone who is lazy and not too bright, hence he's content to sit and gaze at his own navel, rather than be productive.

I guess it’s the 2018 iteration of “contemplating his navel”.

I love new words, but there is no way I'll ever remember how that is written nor pronounced.

The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People again must learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. ~ Cicero 55 BC

Int that a term for dumber than a sack of rocks? Or is it some type of phrase some liberal women shout when a male looks at them?
