A basis for thought

Thought operates based on a framework of space – the reference ‘I’ implying the existence of others, and time, the brain’s store of past events. Both of these reinforce one another. For example memories build a picture of ‘I based on relationships with others, whilst each recollection of the past strengthens subsequent recall. This mutual reinforcement makes it very easy to become completely occupied by thought, and believe that thought is the basis of what we are.

Next: more than thought.
