Difference Between Brooding, Worrying, and Overthinking

When we talk about thinking, it's crucial to differentiate between overthinking, brooding, and worrying. Overthinking is neither brooding (dwelling on past regrets) nor worrying (focusing on future uncertainties). All of these happen in the present, which can hold us back from future success. So, how can we escape these burdensome thought patterns? Read more to understand better...

The Brain, the Mind, and Consciousness

To answer this, we need to explore what thinking really is. But before we do that, we must understand how the brain and the mind relate. They’re closely connected, but neither of them is responsible for thinking. That job belongs to consciousness, which is like our true self according to Vedic philosophy.

Consciousness Is Our True Self

In Vedic philosophy, consciousness isn’t the same as the religious idea of a soul which is believed to go to heaven or hell. It’s our own true self, even beyond the body, brain, and mind. We even realize it when we’re in deep sleep or a coma. Recognizing our consciousness can bring peace by removing the root of fear – uncertainty. If we come from nothingness and return to it eventually, why be afraid, especially of something as profound as death? This heightened consciousness helps us face our fears and anxieties with clear thinking rather than getting stuck in brooding or worrying.

Awakening Consciousness for Clear Thinking

Sadly, many people don’t realize their true selves, which limits their ability to think clearly. They often go for easy solutions that make their problems worse instead of better.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Limits

Even though AI has made great strides, it can’t truly think. Computers are excellent at mimicking the mind but can’t have real thoughts because they lack consciousness. They don’t have distractions or fears, but they also don’t possess genuine thought.

Quantum Consciousness Theories

Some theories suggest that consciousness is a mysterious and fleeting thing, but these ideas can be complex and hard to understand. They may sound impressive, but they don’t necessarily reflect true scientific understanding.

Admiration and Misdirection

In conclusion, real thought comes from consciousness, something machines can never have. Sometimes, our amazement at what machines can do might mislead us into thinking they can truly think. But the profound act of thinking is tied to our consciousness, and machines can’t enter that realm.
