The automatic flow of thought and emotion that runs endlessly thru consciousness helps shield a person from ever having the opportunity to ponder: “Who is it in me doing this thinking and emoting?”
To have the capacity to think, and then not use it to study the nature of mind, is to be a man with a thirst by a drink machine with only a thousand dollar bill.

A man working to GET A HEAD is in his own consciousness – a gang of one.
P.P.S. When you have turned being alive into a totally new game, getting your own head renders you, constructively – headless after all.
