English term or phrase:jump about
The following sentence is from the novel Wittgenstein's Mistress by David Markson and the term "jump about" sounds quite confusing. How can you explain it?
"What I would seriously give almost anything for, in all truth, would be to understand how my head sometimes manages to jump about the way it does."
