Mind Maps allow you to entertain possibilities – and here is a big one!
Could Descartes famous words: “I think therefore I am” make more sense in reverse?
Maybe Yoda is closer? “Am I therefore think I”
Although a strange connection and comparison the contrast leaves me wondering what other odd combinations can encourage different thinking.
I thought of this after the “Why did Leonardo da Vinci use mirror writing?” Mind Map.
Not mirror writing this time I simply pondered the words of Descartes and looked at them in reverse.
“I think therefore I am”
To me, this speaks from ego verifying existence and sounds like it needs a giant exclamation mark at the end!
It seems a final statement; closed, almost like it is not open for discussion or contemplation?
“Am I therefore think I”
Contrast the Yoda version – and to me this speaks of consciousness being aware of the process of thinking!
Is it a subtle difference; or the same thing?
Does Yoda override Descartes?
What do you think?
