In My Travels

Let's pretend that I am the head of the arrow of the active CyThought - the one at NOW!  I am or am moving in an extremely fast astral sea of living thoughts all vying for attention, the questions are:
  • How do I choose which ones to play with?
  • By what means? Feelings?
  • How do I stop the train?
  • How do I identify an idea when I bump into one? There is an amazing amount of shit in the mind which is not really thought; more like memory, beliefs, residue of the day inside & out - etc.
  • How do I know when I am thinking & exactly what is it that I am doing when I am doing "thinking"?
  • Once I stop the train how do I find a "new" idea or thought? I can dance with memories, things stimulated from my internal or external environment - usually at NOW or I can plan ahead and contemplate - a la meditation.
  • I concluded at one point that asking a question of what encountered is the best way to become conscious of an idea or a thought.

What if there were beings in the sea of travel who could imitate perfectly. Your inner voice and any particular personality you could come up with on your own could you lose track of who is driving?

>1- what is the lure of a memory to sidetrack a train of thought ? 2- enumerate all the things that interrupt the train 3-

Mark de LA says

** 1- a whole fantasy evolved from looking for train interruptions & considering that process in the context of instructing hell's kitchen cooks how to maintain focus ** 2- what am I not thinking about right now ? ** 3- body sensations ** 4- itches ** 5- visual inputs & VAK signals external & internal ** 6-

The wallaby of the tag cloud changes the serendipity machine from professionals to any grouping via the tag cloud:

Mark de LA says
In a way the Serendipity machine was not much different than the Denver Java User Group (DJUG) which I attended for ~ 3 years.  There was free pizza & soft drinks, raffle of new technology books, & lectures on particular Java features.  It was hosted downtown at AT$T. There was no cloud mapping for who was there just a bunch of people who mostly stayed in their own tribes.

Mark de LA says

Side-tracks : If I see & get your point of view why would I need to see it from any other , if I trust you completely? Can anyone live up to such a relationship; you or me included!

& the need to repeat the above is what?

well i don't know about "need" ... but it did come up in a train of thought sired by trains off of my wallaby in 17489.   I though it might have related to the representation of a meme network.  I mean, look at the actual pictures ... can you see the wallaby?
Maybe I should have underlined, capitalized & bolded the word REPEAT since it is already above here in this item & no extra comment provided with it.  Glad you copied it to another item.

lol ... perhaps you missed the cheese ... er, my contemplation ... represented by ""

Then too, I am not sure the diagram really means anything profound.
Hmmm... I wonder what kind of altered state I might have been in, if any when I wrote some of this stuff nor why I unprivatized it.  Tags are just funny words - in Google no more than just another search token; in a dictionary no more than something that points to something else in the walled garden of words & ideas.  At worse they are just more labels; as truthful & useful as what you find on a jar of peanut butter; depending upon what is left out & what interests are reflected by the person doing the labeling & maybe not representing what is actually in the jar.
I particularly like the words "or" & "may" when referring to contents.
