You're Mostly Dead Matter

" A thought appears in your head, right? That’s obvious. 

Bang—it’s nothing you ever asked about. 

What the hell does that mean?

'A thought appears in your head.' 

What kind of ridiculous explanation is that?!?

It just doesn't help with anything. 

Where does it come from?’ 

‘Well, nowhere. It just appears in my head.’  

That’s not a very sophisticated explanation, as it turns out. 

You might think that those thoughts that you think...

Well, where do they come from? 

They’re often someone else’s thoughts—someone long dead. 

That might be part of it—just like the words you use to think are utterances of people who have been long dead. 

You’re informed by the spirit of your ancestors. 

That’s one way of looking at it.
