thinking out of the box

“Do or do not… there is no try.”

Yoda, Jedi Master

“The quantum nature of thought”

We humans, we think we remember our past as a fluid rushing stream, not as a swirling gaseous mist
We humans, we think, we remember our past, not as a fluid rushing stream, but as a swirling gaseous mist
We humans, we think. We remember our past, that fluid rushing stream, that swirling gaseous mist

we humans we think
remember our fluid past
gaseous mist swirls

This really isn’t working. How can I try to forget something I could never remember? If a memory doesn’t exist did it ever happen? Or, if a thought becomes the deed, which came first? Time is not linear in the mind. There is no atomic clock ticking away the picoseconds of our life. Age is irrelevant, each step in an unbroken chain of cause and effect, five years becomes eleven becomes nineteen becomes your grandmother staring from the bathroom mirror – how did that happen? How did the past become the future and all our plans come to naught?

Why did the leaf fall to the earth?

Because it remembered to let go and fly.
