There are more thoughts and opinions and facts available to us than ever before.
We have a relatively new area of our brain (frontal lobe) where we can hypothesize and think things through without actually physically committing to them. We create these abstract “play-zones” that we can then populate with avatars of ourself and play games like, “What might happen if I jumped off a cliff”, or “What my happen if I was to overcome this or that fear?”, or “What would happen if I were to live life as if it had meaning beyond just myself?”.
It’s almost like people are growing increasingly afraid to use this part of their brain, most noticeably to consider ideas and viewpoints that might lay outside of their current comfort zone.
What about you? Are you brave enough to think about things outside your current comfort zone?
Do you think that more people should? (Remembering that “thinking” and “acting” CAN be separated from each other).
