I was reading something recently that asked how do we measure the dimensions of an idea? How much does it weight? What volume or space does it take up? How many molecules are in a thought?
If an idea, is in writing, we can measure the letters, words, pages. If it is printed the number of pages. If it is electronic, how many electrons are needed to store it. If we burn the printed pages, or scramble the electrons, does the idea go away?
If the idea is in my brain, does the idea go away when my brain ceases to function.
With the struggle to measure an idea, or thought, why should one idea or thought weigh more heavily on our brain, than another idea or thought?
These are deep questions. Things to think about when I have nothing to think about.
Why do we think about deep and unanswerable questions? Sometimes these conversations with yourself lead to deeper understanding of self, or we draw parallels to other questions in our world.
So what do you think? And how do we measure that thought?
