“Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.”
— Gertrude Stein, novelist and poet
We’re under the illusion that thinking is the process of putting ideas together to reach conclusions. Even those of us who are artistic fall into this trap and see the creation of good art as a conclusion of our thoughts. For Homo sapiens, thought is good when it produces a result. Thinking is a prison of misery, and most of us are locked in.
The obsession with executive function explains why few of us can communicate with animals. It also explains why few of us can express our authentic nature. We believe that we are thinking beings but we are not; we are feeling beings. It’s our pursuit of an independent identity that forces us into our thoughts and away from our feelings. The idea of our independent being-ness is a sterile construction.
