My mind has something to say about everything. I almost compulsorily comment on things that come into my attention span. If something is happening, my own thoughts about it get generated almost automatically. Whether I know the subject or not is of least consequence.
These thoughts then start a barrage of questions in my mind. Lots of them. Some questions just evaporate in thin air and some remain in my consciousness long enough to let me google-out the answers. Of course, this spreads me thin between a huge range of subjects. From physics to geology to metaphysics, theology, history, politics, professions, businesses and so and so forth. Sometimes I think I know about so many things and then again, so little about so many.
The burst of thoughts is so much that I have to speak them out or discuss and debate with someone. Its not enough for me to know that I have a thought. I realize it becomes important for me to share these thoughts with anybody and everybody and sometimes even push a thought through a debate so much as to expect another person to accept my point of view.
And almost everytime I find myself doing this, my mind goes straight to an essay I read, during my B.Sc days in Sacred Hearts College in Ernakulam, called Arguing by Robert Lynd. It almost always brings back a shot of sanity into my mind and I become a little less pushy in my sales attempt.
However, I must point out here that the thoughts have never been created to support any specific agenda. A thought has simply emerged, more like a piece of truth on the basis of the amount of information I have with me. I think this is what gives me the conviction in my own thoughts. And this pure logic of arriving at a conclusion excites me to make others see what I see.
I look forward to this Think Pad letting me express all my thoughts as they come.
