It seems that our great thinkers and scientists often made breakthroughs when they themselves took a break. I often go and have a bath to ponder things. I also find sitting on a balcony overlooking the sea helps a lot. What about you lot?

I retreat into my own little fantasy world in my head.

Sleeping in bed. Somehow the brain keeps working once "loaded" with a problem.

It is not wholly reliable though, otherwise that anti-gravity machine and infinite energy source would be mine :-)

Whilst locked in the toilet and sitting on the craper, I ponder the mysteries of my existence.

What's that, a knock on the door; "Say; aren't you done in there yet?" comes the desperate cry from my impatient wife!!

Is there no peace left in this world,.............?

When I lived back in the states, I used to go on a walk though the woods that backed up to our house.

Now that I live in urban Australia, I go to a little Italian bistro down the street, listen to my ipod, sip my coffee.

I wish they were 2 minutes from my house.

If I can't find a place at home I'll just get in the car and drive somewhere. I'll usually just park it and ponder therein.

I do most of my thinking while I'm trying to get to sleep or whilst I'm walking to somewhere.

Because you love and respect me? Or at the very least because you don't want to kick my head in.

Yes, if you insist.

I think that you being a foot taller than me and built like a tank gains you more than enough respect!!!

Anyway I suggested you come over here to give us the benefit of your wordly wisdom....when are you going to do that??

Tut I didnt mean to me,I meant on here generally. We have had a lack of good posters recently, hence I thought some intelligent debate would be your thing. Anyway we have messed this thread up enough!!!

Back to topic... if you can escape your head, where do you go to think PB?

It doesn't matter where I am physically, I can think anywhere, but doing so involves me retreating into my own little fantasy world in my head so that I cannot be disturbed.

It's been a long time since I needed to go somewhere specific to think.

My problem isn't thinking. My problem is not thinking. I'll let you know when I have a solution to that one.

I do my heavy contemplation in the shower and like pmb00cs my trouble is not thinking it is trying to not be thinking constantly! But if I have particular problem the shower for relaxing, crying, and deep thinking, and contemplation is the place for me.

Too much thinking keeps me from sleeping on many many occasions!
