Consciousness: mindfarts & mindfulness

Mummy: Is something on your mind?

Philomena –  No. I’m just thinking about stuff. Well not really. I’m just kind of, you know, I’m just being spacey right now.

“Like just about every other aspect of the human condition, our consciousness operates on a spectrum. On one end lies conscious awareness, or mindfulness. But all the way on the other end, there’s something you could call mindlessness. And mindlessness brings many benefits that are being overlooked, like creative thinking and personal problem-solving.”
