..."If you talk all the time,
you will never hear what anybody else has to say,
and therefore, all you'll have to talk about
is your own conversation.

The same is true for people who think all the time.
That means, when I use the word 'think,'
talking to yourself,
subvocal conversation,
the constant chit-chat of symbols and images and talk and words inside your skull.

Now, if you do that all the time,
you'll find that you've nothing to think about
except thinking,
and just as you have to stop talking to hear what I have to say,
you have to stop thinking to find out what life is about.

And the moment you stop thinking,
you come into immediate contact with what Korzybski called,
so delightfully, 'The Unspeakable World',"

~Alan Watts...
