love of thinking.

philosophy. that`s what it means........love of thinking. it is what our handlers demand that we do. think, damn it! so i did.............and i discovered that i love to think. i stand and look at the world and things that most people take for granted and i see conections and networks and patterns that, to me, are right there and so obvious as to be blatant.
like the odd arrangement that we are all living on a rock ball spinning in a vacuum held in a gravity dance around a giant spherical fire.
to me that seems odd. to most it`s just the way it is, but i say, wow, look at where we are and look at all the empty nothing and absolute cold around in space, yet we are warm and safe with all that we need growing on trees and walking around to eat. everything is precisely arranged for us to live, when 100 miles straight up is certain death in space.
and cats and dogs love us and want to be close and share our space.......and horses too. and rats and other species of animal that recognise our divine nature.
when you start to realise that all that we take for granted is a miracle and that all we have to do is focus on it for a moment to be thrilled to the bone for the rest of our lives, you start to understand that thinking is fun and interesting and it is a window on the miraculous.

Like they sang in Alladin, Song: A Whole New World

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
Don't you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
Hold your breath - it gets better
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me
