There's obviously a gut reaction to a situation and an intellectual, reasoned reaction. This is based in biology, the brain stem (survival lizard brain) provides these basic impulses to protect us from any perceived harm, real or imaginary. Going with the flow and the herd is the same, lizard brain response and requires low levels of thought and self awareness other than understanding there are others in the room following a pattern.
But who knows, maybe the guy who makes points based on fucking arranged punctuation marks has it more figured out than me. Fucking imbecile.>>344470898
Sure, I agree with you there. It is probably a semantic issue.I have some thoughts, like I would imagine others do as well, which are very abstract and "non-verbal" which may be like what I was talking about above. That being said, I believe intensely in being mindful and questioning why you believe, or even feel a certain way. Feelings create beliefs, beliefs create action. When I think about some subjects, like having an argument with someone, its almost like a rubix cube or puzzle seeing what would fit and what would not. Sometimes this highlights dumb things I "Gut" felt and "believed" but after examining them and challenging them though the "gauntlet of beliefs" action and experience like William James wrote about
