Thinking and Not Thinking in the Context of Action Leading to Something Meaningful or Not - A Reflection

LasVegas2014

I opened the door. I stepped forward. I was nowhere. Was this obliteration? Had I ceased to exist? Where was I? Stop! If I could question where I was then I must have been somewhere. If I am where nothing exists then I do not exist. Wait. If I am where nothing exists? That makes no sense. There is no “where” in the realm of nonexistence. Wait. There is no “realm” of nonexistence. There is nothing. Wait. There is no “is” in nothingness. Wait, there is no “in” then.

Need we care to what extent people judge the twists and turns of our thinking? Need every one of our thoughts be well reasoned? Should our every idea be congruent? To what extent do we mentally constipate ourselves by impeding a thought process that might allow us to end up in some very interesting places and with some meaningful results. So what if every thought we have does not lead to a Noble prize or a prize that’s noble. Maybe, there are times when thinking for thinking’s sake is reward enough.
