    Ok, you may think this is an odd or a difficult, I don't know what to call it, question, but it is something I think about really often. How do you people think? And what do you think about? Do you make stories about other worlds or differend kind of situations? Do you try to analyse people and find out who they really are? Do you try to figure out what other people feel? Do you thing about death? Do you try to find the meaning of life?

    I've got so many questions that I don't know what to ask about, but I hope you understand what I actually want to know.

    no one can truly understand how their mind works because it is so complex. I think logically; if there is a problem, then there is a solution, i will then apply different methods of solving it. I have created many situations in my head which i make steadily more complex as i go along so this is 'serious daydreaming '

    I can answer the second part, what do you think about, stimulus from the eyes ears etc all prompt me to think, some object may instantly remind me of a long lost relative to whom I then give some thought, I seem to be thinking all the time but it always comes back to what my eyes see and ears hear, just in writing this I find my thoughts drifting back to my grandfather for example and then on to others, just one example, I 'don't just think about them. The interesting thing I find is when I am drifting off to sleep, thoughts then become really crazy as if whatever process that control my dreams are interacting with reality.

    I can actually relate to your first example of making stories about other worlds and situations. I often build up scenarios from scratch and insert myself into them just to see how I might hypothetically react to whatever the predicament. I also try and see things from other peoples perceptions. I try and put myself in their shoes so to speak. Every time I try to just use straight logic but it never last and my emotions usually get the better of me. I try not to daydream but thats almost impossible for someone like me.

    Supercuriositine: you are of course aware that books can and have been written about each and every question you asked in that one single small paragraph!

    What I want to do is find out what is going on in YOUR mind that you ask so many big questions all at once. Many others who attend college, for example, do not have that curiosity. They are in the grade-degree business of getting a good job.

    But you seem genuinely curious. I assume it is because you are filled with a host of conflicting explanations for society, economic systems, religion, etc. and you are a bit disgusted with an aducational system than cannot do a better job of "fitting the pieces together into a whole."

    In case this is so, I will presume to go further and explain that we evolved in a way that the frontal and pariatal lobes of the brain were added to a primite brain stem. That primitive part of the brain is the instinctive proclivities we have and the lobes house the cultural conditioning which, incidentallyt functions in the form of language. The primitive part of the brain does not.

    Suppose a friend had borrowed a book which you now want back. You remind him. He says he will give it back the next day. His conscious mind is working and comes up with the words. His primitive mind however could not care less. He wants to return the book to please you but has no interest in remembering to fulfill his commitment to return it. So, later on, you have to remind him again. Ultimately, it will be in his interests to return it to stop having to make promises.

    I hope this has helped . . . .

    Well as for myself, i don't do a lot of thinking unless I'm trying to work something out. Normally I'm just singing, whistling or humming, unless of course certain women are talking to me (no names mentioned) then i just go into this vegetable state on the inside, but on the outside I'm agreeing and nodding which she mistakes for unwavering attention.
