What Does a Thought Weigh? By Eldon Taylor
I have often struggled with ideas that can communicate the power of a single thought. Our brains have been labeled as the 3 pound universe and in many ways this is totally appropriate.
But if our brains only weigh three pounds and we have literally millions and millions of thoughts stored somewhere, what does a thought weigh? That seems like kind of a non-sense inquiry-but wait a minute.
It has been estimated that we think some 60,000 thoughts every day. In addition to our thoughts, we handle tens of thousands of bits of information as a result only of external stimuli.
Others have approximated the amount of negative information each of us process to be representative of at least 90% of the stimuli we process. Indeed, I would add that for many, the vast majority of their inner thoughts are also negative.
Now if you think of our 3 pound universe that way, then how much does all of the negativity weigh?
