Visualizing the mind

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

I had a mini conversation with someone about the mind and he asked how I visualize thinking. I had never thought about how I visualized it and he said most people think of it as a voice in their head. A conversation if you will. It was a bunch of psychedelic stuff, but it made me wonder how I did visualize things without thinking about them. In this case what I did was I’d focus on another task intently and then go back and try to figure out what I was thinking.

I ended up with a few images. The most common was a forest, a lake, a mountain, an upside down tower and a castle, nut there is nothing in the castle. The only action I remember is pulling the water and a web coming out before dropping back in.

Not a fucking clue what this all means, if anything. My sense of reality was already unstable enough as is.
