We Think We Know What We Are

There are those who believe that  memory, cognition and consciousness itself is just neurological computing of a strictly physical nature. Surely if we are to believe this wonderless notion, our lives are doomed to become as such. There is much of what we see occurring today that can be reduced to that and in turn to be seen as a product of this kind of thinking, but as Greg Krech writes “We think we know our own life, but what we know is only an edited version, colored by our emotions and narrow vision. How close can we come to the original draft? By staring at truth, the soil is warmed, and we begin digging toward the sky.” We just need to learn to look without the conviction of our conditioned and assumed beliefs to begin to see something of us that is more than our analysis and cognitive  concepts and assertions.
