Today's been a busy day for me, but it's got me thinking about philosophers and mathmeticians. I know my job doesn't compare to theirs in terms of deep analytical thinking, but I've been doing quite a bit of analyzing/negotiating/decision making today, and it's given me a headache. Not a bad one, but I just feel like my brain is the bodily equivalent of the Brent Spence Bridge - too much traffic for its construction to handle!
I know I'm not the smartest guy in the world (even if my blog is amazing), but I can't imagine how people who's lived are centered around finding the next big mathematical discovery or writing dissertaions on philosphical conundrums deal with the amount of information flowing in and out of their brains. I guess it points first of all to my own limited mental capacity (but sweet blogging skills) but in reality the amazing capabilities of the human brain to be able to deeply think and analyze things.
I'm probably preaching to the choir, but that just blew my mind thinking about it (and I'm using it for an awesome blog post). I'm proud to be mostly human (except for the superior blogging ability - that's SUPER-human ;-)).
