The Art Of Thinking - Poem by chuck Hurley
In order to think one must start with a rational thought
Sounds simple; but it is the the most important thing humanity has got.
The first step to thinking is to form a reasonable question
One that is rarely asked but is an intelligent selection.
Information should be the objective for most questions asked
Or at a minimum generate other questions as an on going task.
Newton could have just eaten the apple and that would have been that
Rather the impetus for other questions and gravity became a scientific fact.
In our rush to reach conclusions many times the obvious can be over looked
Thinking is a human function searching for answers, rarely found inside a book.
The grandest human gift we are given is our capacity to have mental thoughts
To find enlightenment in questions may be of more value than the answers sought.
Humanities recorded history has little about the content of the female human mind
I asked a few questions and my resources confirmed; there were no answers to find.
There are no philosophers, prophets, high priests, potentates, or even significant others
It appears their role up to the nineteenth century was to be our beautiful caring Mothers.
Do not both genders have a shared and equal responsibility for all of earthly time?
With seven children my Mother used hers and I am thankful; she let me have mine.
