“A person who thinks all the time has nothing to think about except thoughts. So, he loses touch with reality and lives in a world of illusions. By thoughts I mean specifically “chatter in the skull”... perpetual and compulsive repetition of words... of reckoning and calculating.

I’m not saying thinking is bad. Like everything else, it’s useful in moderation. A good servant, but a bad master - and all so called civilized peoples have increasingly become crazy and self-destructive. Through excessive thinking, they have lost touch with reality.”

    I posit that most people don't think, but instead just talk to themselves and others. I also posit that this is equally common among both developed and undeveloped nations. Humans, by nature, are mentally lazy; only a select few seem to lack (or have overcome) this trait.
