Hello ATS, hope you are all having a great weekend! I was thinking again, and had a thought about thoughts.
It was the movie "Avatar"
that got my wheels turning on this one. All of the extremely
detailed forestry, and the intricate details of the entire film. My thoughts were, that James
couldn't have thought up ALL of those things, those details.
So then I started diving deeper into the topic of thoughts. Now, I know us humans are known to have wild imaginations. I get that. But, it seems
to me that we are able to "imagine" something, if we've never seen it with our own
eyes, or have been told about it.
Like what about the Very First Thoughts?
How could we have ever thought about anything? Now if we were taught, or told about various items used
in life, or various items that existed, then we could begin to "imagine" or "re-create" differing variations of said items. Then, we would be able to
tell other people about these things. Then they would tell people, and so on and so on....
Take dark matter
for example, we don't really know
anything about it, or what it's possible of. So how could we ever imagine it, or have thoughts about it.
My point is, no one will ever be able to imagine something they have never seen before. We can't ever have thoughts about something we know not of.
I am looking forward to seeing how people will respond to this. I welcome some critical thought on this subject. Thanks for reading.
