A new non-development appears.

A year or so ago, thought lost its throne. I said, right here.

Now it appears thought has lost its home. Well, around here, anyway.

The habitual thinker has — stopped habitually thinking.

‘Thoughtless’ is often applied to others as a criticism.

‘You are just so b____y thoughtless, aren’t you?’ has been heard, said by one person to another.

It’s actually a complaint about not being considered — in other terms, it’s a complaint from self about not being central in another self’s actions, not getting reflected — and so is inherently a selfish complaint.

But of course none of that is about thoughtlessness at all, it’s about thoughtfulness on both sides of the complaint – maker and recipient.

‘That was so thoughtful’ is sometimes used as a compliment — meaning, ‘I got my reflection from you’ — a stroke of recognition, as sometimes said. More self-centred-ness.

Real thought-less-ness is not thinking unnecessarily.

And that is peace.

Not peace of mind, peace, no mind.

And nothing at all has been lost.
