We place such overinflated importance on originality and uniqueness that we are prime candidates for being fooled, by thought, that our creations are indeed unique and very original. We are 100 percent unable to see ourselves in the perspective of seven billion minds thinking thoughts all day long. To think that anything we come up with is new and original is astonishingly naive. To think that our particular opinion on any topic is the right one, the smart one, the educated one, is severely delusional.
Thinking is a socially accepted form of insanity.
The current book delves into this topic and scouts out issues presented by the realization that we do not think our own thoughts.

I cannot imagine this ending this ending up on the best seller list because of the required roads and philosophical blind alleys necessary to arrive at the thesis put forward. I absolutely loved it and to Steven I would just say an appreciative thank you !
