Don't Think Too Much

The purpose of this email is to provide something deep for Friday night dinner conversation. Please print and share.

"Most people would sooner die than think; in fact, they do so." - Bertrand Russell

As you may know, I put that great Russell witticism in Chapter 3 of The Art of Amazement, along with a parallel quote from Thomas Jefferson.

Today's first question for your table is a simple one: Why do we hate thinking?

Here is a short provocative article on the nature of "nothingness" that may get you thinking....or not.

Question #2 - What is fundamentally missing from this article?

(I have tried to write a comment but keep getting a "technical error" - so if you'd like to hear my own critique, send an email.)
