I Think Therefore I Am

In my opinion, if I didn't think so much, I wouldn't amount to anything at all. The only good thing about me is my ability to think. Anyone else feel the same way?

I know exactly what you mean. And im sure you about things so much that the things you discover is rather painful, but you wouldn't have it any other way. As far as i know we are the only beings on this planet capable of contemplating so many profound thoughts. So it seems to me, that no matter how we got here, that is roughly what we are SUPPOSED to be doing. I also believe that tru free will doesnt just happen, i think is something that needs to be exercised, like a muscle. So it makes me feel very sad to look around and see people in a waking vegitative state, watching things like Swamp People, Pawn Stars, and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. It's disgusting. Trying have an intelligent conversation with these people is like talking to the answering machine. When you try to point this out they get hostile, like your disturbing this thing that they've worked very hard to create. And then they treat you as if your the one who is "out of touch". God, sometimes I feel like im walking around in some sort of bad horror movie.

Yes, thinking is very important. But taking action is likewise as important. Esp. aaccording to the existentialist

I used to. But then, after a while, I realised that all the thinking was just sitting on top of something that was far more important. Now I just *am*, and in many ways, I'm quite content with that :)
