      what if thoughts are reading us?

      what if thoughts are reading us as much as we are reading them?

      Would knowing this change your thinking and your attitude towards thoughts? Would it change your thoughts attitude towards you?


      Curious idea... Thoughts?

      Thats quite hard to take in all at once, thinking that my thought are thinking about me and then imagining it gives me a head spin

      But thats a really cool thought you had

      Of course our thoughts read us, and that's the only thing they read. All that our experiences are made up of are thoughts reading other thoughts and thoughts reading and acting upon our own sensations. We'd be lost if our thoughts could not read "us" back.

      Through what means would they be aware of us other than on the level of thought?
      157 is a prime number. The next prime is 163 and the previous prime is 151, which with 157 form a sexy prime triplet. Taking the arithmetic mean of those primes yields 157, thus it is a balanced prime.

      Thoughts are more like the bridge between the conscious and subconscious, the language of the mind. It (thought) stems from perception, and experience.

      I don't think what you've said makes sense, and I don't think it's an English barrier. Our thoughts pretty much are us. What is the 'me' that my thoughts might be reading, if not more thoughts?

      I'd have to disagree that our thoughts are us. Spend a few minutes focusing on your breath and you'll see fairly quickly that thoughts just happen, without 'you' having anything to do with it. In fact, like breath they can be consciously and unconsciously controlled (is it really control if it's unconscious?), so in the same way that I am not my breathing, I am not my thoughts...Or at least that's what I think.

      Personally I don't see any reason to think my thoughts are aware of me, but perhaps I don't respect them enough in that they can show me a lot about what is going on in my mind in certain situations if I can view them from a non-personal or non-invloved point of view, remembering they are not-self but just an indicator of my state of mind.
