A thought on Thought, Looking for connections
Thinking is what we do best. It is supposed to distinguish human beings from the rocks and vegetables and even from the other animals. That idea worries me. But I won’t go into that. What is thinking? Well, there are all sorts of wonderful definitions and I am not going to add to them. To me thinking is what happens in my brain when I play around with images and ideas in order to connect them in some way. Thinking determines “the look” of the world around me. Thinking is about building strategies and then testing them in the mind for their performance and usefulness.
