People don’t like thinking. It’s painful. Like denoting page numbers, you have to get your brain’s cells to assemble in an attempt to establish some order.
There’s a reason why there are so few philosophers and so many people attending entertainments. It is easier to sit back and play, to consume in our default setting rather than tinkering with abstract trains of thought.
Humans are thinking machines
It takes courage to challenge yourself to learn without concluding. Society obsesses with absolutes, stuck safely indoors while the explorers coast outside with effortless attention.
Magnetically lured to controlling the world, you forget that uncertainty is what makes thinking successful. Experimentation begets revelations, which leads to even more possibilities.
Doing is why there’s knowing, a result of thinking lightly about what could be.
