Re: INTPs and their amazing ideas
I thought of thinking... or something like that
So, this idea came to me, because I've had these thoughts before I actually thought. Basically, before I started thinking, I somehow thought about what I was thinking. (Is this just me?)
If, based on experiences, one were to have different levels of thinking- as the first level would be thinking, second would be thinking before thinking, third as in thinking before thinking before thinking, and etc., would dreams and the subconscious just be one of these levels of thinking?
One has to "think", somehow, to produce an image in one's head, after all. Thus, we must all be thinking somehow. Does this not mean that even though we sleep, our brains are awake, or at least active enough such that it can produce such levels of thinking to power our dreams?
Furthermore, would this system somehow include our unconsciousness? Could one not make such a system clear enough as to label these levels of thinking clearly so we know what levels remain in our conscious realm of reality, and what are submerged further under the layers of foggy experience in our minds?
When one ponders this idea further, our brains are generally like computers then. Say that we have folders in which folders and other "papers" belong. Then our thinking subject we are currently thinking would be in the 1st folder, as a paper, and then the ideas we have on the second level would be in the 2nd folder, etc. If this system were to exist like so, one should also have a limit of storage in these files. Would some of the "papers" in the innermost layer be deleted to clear up more space- in comparison to computers, brain memory would be somewhat like the bytes available on your computer/google account/etc.? If so, then we technically would have forgotten the contents of that "paper", and thus we would not be able to retrieve such an idea or experience back.
If our brain memory space is unlimited however, does this not mean that we theoretically have photogenic memory? In that case, those identified with photogenic memory would just be people with unorganized brains such that all the "papers" of their ideas and experiences being stored in the 1st level of thinking's folder.
