A Biased Mind
Thinking about Thinking
“We only think we’re thinking” – el Loco Gringo
Keeping in mind that we only think we’re thinking. We actually are only giving a patterned response. Consider two people in a face to face conversation. All sensory data is present. A third party will see this as a ping pong game, in which pre-considered concepts are being fielded by the algorithms. There is no thinking going on. If there is not a hit on the algorithm (the concept hasn’t been pre-considered} He will access his data bank (3 seconds for left hemisphere, 3 seconds for right), the pattern reservoir for concepts. If he gets a hit he may respond with the best match to date, or he may ponder the concept, (He starts thinking) or put it off and “sleep on it”. The point of this rambling, incoherent diatribe is that until a datum is communicated, it is not real. IE it is not relevant to “coping with the world”. The act of communication makes the concept relevant to survival and will be considered. Once it is considered a trigger point will be set on the algorithm. When I am in the room with a doctor, for instance, I recognize that there are two experts in the room. While the doctor is the expert on health, I am the expert on me. Most people accept dogma, I consider it. I know more about me than anyone else in the world, and I am the best judge of how to incorporate these new concepts into my lifestyle.
