The human mind is constantly at work building conceptual models of what it wants to understand. Jeff Lieberman says it shouldn’t always try so hard. If the mind spent more time in contemplation, it might free itself of the need to categorize, theorize, and order the world around it.

Contemplation, Lieberman says, can release us from the self-created bubbles that separate us from life itself. Even a more thoughtful application of technology may help us to navigate a path we haven’t even thought of yet.

so distracted by the human levels of our experience, that we miss things
our brain - has become completely compulsive
i am - an empty space,
keeping us from change - the consistant flawed thought that we are separate from the world.
