The Illogical us

You might have wondered and awe at how logical a creature the human beings are. What if you realize it aint so.

The next time you make a decision or come to a conclusion, think about it. In mostly likelihood you would have made the judgement right at the start and then just assimilated those facts that apparently lead to a logical conclusion to your judgement. You don't see the rest which disprove it.

Interestingly we apply our mind only after we have a thought. Once you have a thought it either creates a chain reaction in you or outside of you both potentially leading to something undesireable.

So they urge humans to train themselves to apply / put your mind before your thought. If only we could understand this well we could plausibly be better at not being led by our thoughts.

Well actually it is true that we do take the decision at the very starting and find every reason to accept it :)

well I guess the more we consciously try to 'think' the less we are able to..we should let the thoughts flow..and ride on the one we want to!!

nice blog!!

Oh yeah! We think we are smart, logical and superior, only to realize most of the times we actually are not as much as we think ourselves to be!

@rakesh: When I think about it, ever living organism pretty much lives in the same mode. Even though we can't quite call it a thought ;).
