Why Thinking Is Overrated

I didn't come up with this
but I thought it was cool.

Imagine you have no head.

I’m serious. Imagine you have no head. Right this instant.

You can feel your arms, legs, hands, feet, stomach, chest and back. But your bodily sensations stop at the neck. There’s nothing there.

At this moment, you can feel, touch, see and hear – but you can’t think.

(Don’t worry about how you can see or hear without eyes and ears – worrying requires a head, and right now you haven’t got one. )
