Thinking things

Creating original ideas is a bit like enjoying original sin. Hmmm? Are my thoughts sinful? What is sin? Is that a feeling or a thought? Is there anything original under the sun – or moon?

Is thinking required to activate feelings? Or do feelings need to be felt before thought can be activated?

This circular argument reminds me of Descartes.  “I think therefore I am”  I doubt; therefore I think?  This is the idea that when we doubt, we cannot doubt that we doubt or think, for doubting is just a form of thinking. All through the history of the ‘thinking man’ this is the question and perhaps this is the only thing that sets humans apart from other animals?

I’m a thinking thing then? What do you think?

So I write to seek and answer questions – of myself – of the world – of the universe?
