Thinking it Over
I don’t mind being thought a fool, as long as I am not the one who is doing the thinking.
If I am not doing the thinking, maybe I am not doing any thinking. Maybe I am a fool. Maybe if I were doing the thinking, I wouldn’t be a fool. Or else I’m fooling myself by thinking that I’m not doing the thinking. Yet, I did say that it was OK as long as I was not the one who is doing the thinking.
Wow, this is hard. Think about it! If you don’t think you are a fool, and others do think you are a fool, maybe the “don’t think” part really is you.
I’ll have to think about this.
OK, I thought about it.
I think I’m a fool.
I changed my mind. After having thought and thought and thought and thought and thought, I think I’m thinking. So, I’m not a fool after all.
Maybe I only think I’m thinking…
