Perhaps it is impossible to think about thought itself.
Oh it appeats to the conceptual mind that it can ponder its own activity ; but that may be an illusion.
The synapses evolved to cross reference incoming data and synthesize it with previously acquired information
There is no reason to assume that they have access to their own inner workings.
Perhaps thinking about thinking is merely one more illusion.

Thinking and doing are both stimulated by situations we encounter by chance.

My response to your post was caused an encounter by chance, not choice.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

The word “chance” is loaded with the assumption of the existence of “non-chance”.
It, like all of the speculations of the conceptual mind concerning it own reality, is meaningless.

Non-chance doesn’t work either because it would mean a sure thing, and the existence of non-sure thing, and round and around we go.

Thanks, but I’ll stick with my chance, luck, good fortune, roll of the dice, rub of the green—definitely not pre-determination.

Do you believe in luck?

I only believe in myself. As for luck, good things and bad things happen to people for no particular reason.

Your belief in your self is unsubstantiated.

Under what conditions would it be more effective or less effective, do you think?

 

I’m sure that this idea has been spoken of by the great thinkers

a and not a?
