I was just wondering if you could EVER stop thinking? When I try to do it I always notice myself holding my breath, maybe my brain stopped thinking for a second and turned many/every thing(s) off. You should try and stop thinking. Not that it probably helps burn many calories...
Can you think without 'sounding' your thoughts 'inside' as you think?
The same as Chinese scholars sees things 'differently' than Westerners when it comes to physics etc? (Am I sounding stupid now:)-------
I don't have a link to that Chemistry4me:)I read an article a few years ago about a Chinese discovery in physics.And their approach was unusual.And inspired to some thoughts about how your language, who could be seen as a mirror of society, might form ideas and concepts.It seems reasonable to me?
Anyone wanna guess how they thought?
Is there any of you mathematicians that 'think' in math?
How do one feel Fourier transfoms SC.Is it like getting 'hunches'?
For example if you used to train hard but then stops for a year or two, it is said that you will find it easier than to 'come back' into shape than when you once started.And I can vote for that:)
I've heard of savants who could glance at a plate with scores of similar objects,(e.g. M&Ms), and instantly be able to tell exactly how many there were.
I may be a visual thinker but I can never, ever, reckon to learn anything until I have heard someone else actually say it. Weird.

This has lead me to understand that; The spoken word is such a poor substitute for the inner thought. But with little alternative, it's the best we have when trying to understand the thoughts of others.........Ethos
Someone who uses signing would, presumably, think in signing!
I don't have a visual thought process, so I generally 'sound things out' in my head (My Mrs pictures words in her head, meaning she's far better than me at spelling and anagrams, and wipes the floor with me in scrabble).
