When do I get to stop thinking?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Weisser Realty

When do I get to stop thinking?All of our gadgets are touted as getting smarter and smarter every day.

"Smart" is not just an attribute for phones any more. Everything from cars to televisions to refrigerators are taking on more of our thinking workload every day.

Since we no longer have to think so much for ourselves anymore, it is safe to assume that our brains will experience some level of atrophy and simply begin to erode away.

I kind of like the idea of not having to think so much anymore. Thinking can be the genesis of nightmares and headaches.

Shutting down the brain, on the other hand, can lead to euphoria and bliss!

And I could use a little of that right about now.

In meditation, it's not really about shutting off, but really become aware in a new way for instance. :)

Ha ha! That must be why there are so many "not-so-smart" people using "smart phones". P.S. It's not working.

I dunno, Richard.  Senile loopiness runs in my family, and I've been looking for ways to keep those gray cells dancing.  Maybe Lumosity.com will compensate for my smart phone.  I do at least still have a stupid car.

It's 10:30pm and I'm just now blogging.  Just off the phone with a buyer.  I must be nuts but am sure not turning down a serious buyer ready to make an offer on one of my listings.  I will say, "my brain is tired and I'm calling it a night."

Interesting question Richard, I think that I will continue to do the thinking, with a little help from my smart tools.

Then again, when we meet someone that doesn't engage, we are for some reason not fulfilled.

"Speak for yourself, Lenn".

O.K.  Conversation is fun.  While I do love pithy, a good conversation is about the only way to advance a relationship.

Good Morning Richard!  I think too much dependence on technology is never a good thing.
