emotionally charged thoughts


(picture courtesy  Daniel merriam)

a mind is a colash

of ideas,images, impulses ,  and emotions.

the cognitive field of ideas is made from the assemblage of different ideas contributed by many people.

The only space which I can occupy in it , is my own imagination(creativity).

this imagination has my own ideas(synthesis) from thesis(others ideas)challenged by the

antithesis of logic.

These ideas are in the form of thoughts.

every second, mind is getting renewed by a process of accomodation and assimilation of new ideas, and gain new  insight and emotional state.

(if an axe of cast iron is an idea,an axe of stainless steel with a long hand  is assimilation, minor changes and a saw is a product of accommodation,major changes)

there is nothing changes so fast as mind

no clouds in the sky

no waves in the sea……….thoughts are quicker than lightening.

A normal person may get 36000 to 60000 thoughts in a day

most of them are repeated thoughts(rumination)

and 60 % of these repeated thoughts are negative thoughts

the speed of thought processing varies with the individual

the people who process thoughts quickly are more intelligent .

and they talk rapidly.

however I think speed of thought processing is linked to content of thoughts

because content of thoughts makes it emotionally charged

when we get angry we process thoughts faster

this is true with anxious thoughts too

In other words,mood  and affect are  important contributor to the speed of thought processing

a depressed person process thoughts slower than normal person

and manic faster than normal person,is a well known fact

but similer condition is applicable to normal people with normal changes in   emotional states -(affect).

the content of thoughts changes emotional state  and vice versa and that in turn changes the  speed of thoughts .
