Thinking: A Neglected Art

Yes I agree entirely. Thinking is a neglected art. In this overpopulated and congested busy world in which people are up to their noses in work they hardly have any time to think. Thinking is a very important and powerful process. We can imagine thought to be in the form of waves like light. When light is spread out it just provides illlumination, but when it is concentrated on to one spot with a lens it is hot enough to burn paper. It is a similiar situation with the mind. When our thoughts are spread out and thinks on a range of different things it cant do much, more than think but when our thoughts are concentrated it can hold immense power. The world around us bombards the senses with numerous stimuli making it impossible for us to concentrate on any one thing for mmore than a few minutes. People often boast of being able to do two things at the same time thinking of it as something great. The truth is true multitasking does not exist. When we try to multitask our concentration just moves between the different things we are doing and makes us slower at doing both things. The human mind was not built for multitasking. On the other hand if we give our full concentration to the task at hand we would be able to do it faste and in the end be more productive in our lives. This is the limitation that stops humanity from evolving.
