Cogito Ergo Zoom















Cogito Ergo Zoom
(I think therefore I go fast.)

Every thought’s a thing –
A neuro-transmitted pulse.
Thinking changes things.

Dr Grey Walter
In his book ‘The Living Brain’
Showed thoughts traveling.

They could turn on lights.
Picked up by his electrodes
They’d turn on TVs,

Just by thinking power.
“There is nothing either good or bad,
But thinking makes it so.”

Said William Shakespeare.
Bad thoughts make people depressed.
Good thoughts cheer them up.

Is humanity
The planet’s way of thinking
About itself?

“A self-thinking thought”
Is what Anselm believed God was.
Hard for atheists

To unthink such a thought,
With God continuously
Thinking he’s alive.

If you think something,
Is it you thinking it, or
Someone’s else mind

Whose back-up you are? –
Their mind getting overloaded
And offloading stuff on you.

That doesn’t sound true?
What could you do if it was?
‘Hey! Give me my thoughts back!’

Freud thought telepathy
Was man’s earliest method
Of communication.

A thought seems tiny
But the Butterfly Effect,
Whereby small changes

In complex systems
Can have world-shattering effects,
Shows it packs a punch. 

In the beginning
Something smaller than nothingness
Thought, ‘I’ve had enough’

And the world began.
To Gandhi, “Our thoughts become our words,
Our words become our actions,

Our actions become our character,
Our character becomes our destiny.”
And Milton Glaser observed,

“If you perceive the universe as being
A universe of abundance, then it will be.
If you think of the universe as one of scarcity, then it will be.”

Thoughts can alter facts
Thoughts are psychedelic bombs.
Everyone has them.
