Thought Combinations?

  1. Sep 9, 2004 #1
    Perhaps this isn't the right Forum for such topic, but it does fall under some philosophy.

    Your brain thinks not all at once but in a progressive nature where you cannot possibly consider all thoughts at once of a subject or any multiple subjects. I believe it is a combination progression, and this how thought builds. To put it into an example,

    Say you were in the middle of a discussion and something comes to your head to say. What put it there? I believe this is a combination of multiple concepts/thoughts that 'connect the dots' over the subject. It's like your brain is constantly searching for a thought. Now, this would lead to progression of a thought just like Newton or Einstein.. Putting 1 and 1 together = 2. 2 then = 1 and it repeats itself from the new perspective/thought. It's a building progression of combinations. It is simply random until put into context. That is why you cannot think everything at once.

    Read psychology 101 text. Theta consciousness concepts discuss this subject. Read a Damasio latest book. Spinoza is in the title.
