If you talk all the time, you never hear what anyone else has to say.
and therefore all you will have to talk about is your own conversation.
the same is true for people who think all the time.
that means when I use the word think, talking to yourself,
subvocal conversation, the constant chit-chat of symbols and images
and talk and words inside your skull.
now if you do that all the time you will find that you have nothing to think about except thinking
and just as you have to stop talking to hear what others have to say,
you have to stop thinking to find out what life is about.
and the moment you stop thinking,
you become into immediate contact with,
the unspeakable world.
the force of liberation will blow the world to peices.
- Alan Watts
I think if Alan saw cell phones and how it hypnotises the masses into self thought he would be astonished.
