I love thinking. And I love delving into the abstract realms of thought and existence. I think it all depends on the thinker, his/her surrounding
experiences and the nature of thought itself.
our surrounding experiences can influence most of what we think by subconsciously staying underneath our conscious experience, where thought is
perceived and analyzed/experienced/lived/received. The subconscious flows into the conscious, so if for example, I am living a life where I've had
physical and emotional problems as well as economic and social, I can imagine the burden of thinking flowing through that conscious awareness Based on
the subconscious composition of a traumatized/shocked existence.
But then there is also the issue of the thinker, who also decides how "it" reacts to the thoughts and emotions that flow through the experience.
There are some people who handle stressful situations better than others. Some people smile in times of adversity and have a strong will power to keep
on trucking. Others break down and can't take it. There is a mental toughness, others reach enlightenment and get it, some are indifferent, yet
others get lost in non-thought and just live in the physical world of "consensus" reality, where there's a society full of humans that go around
being actors in the big play of life on the world's stage (reference to shakespeare).
And now on to the nature of thought itself. The thinking ability we possess is interesting to say the least. It's curious surely. I wouldnt go so far
as to say human thought is the best thing to happen since apple pie, because it certainly is not. At times, human thought can be dark or malicious and
at times it can be creative or just non--existent; as is the case when you're really tuning in on good music or in the zone during a sport and
you're in the moment. It is so flexible and dynamic it truly is something to think about
it allows you, to turn on an inner flashlight into
yourself and others. The truth may not be what you're expecting. It may be different from some one else's truth. That's because our consciousness
is just as complex as this universe we are a part of, which blows my mind that as tiny organisms on a small planet we can at least think about such an
"out there" idea
Thinking is mental exercise. It can have a toll on you and make you feel drained. That's why we have to participate in physical activity as well. And
that doesn't necessarily mean exercising or going to the gym. It means synchronizing or trying to synchronize some of your inner desires and thoughts
with actions in the outer world. If you always think about meeting someone special, but you are shy and don't talk to other people and make the
effort to meet someone, you're gonna spend the rest of your life just waiting for it to happen and it won't feel fulfilling. Same goes with a bunch
of other possible thoughts. But then we have to realize there's the part of our thoughts that are pure imagination, and to get those to manifest into
consensus reality, we have to do a lot more thinking, science, and acting in physical reality. Thinking about flying with machines existed before the
actual machines. A bunch of smart people thought about how to create their idea and make it happen. It happened because of thought, and abstract
thought too (mathematics)(Physics). Then a bunch of "smart people" thought about how to throw bombs off these machines. And there you have it,
thought is a double edged sword, so don't think too loud
And always remember we aren't as smart or intelligent as we think we are.
