I’ve read that animals think in pictures. Also read that the followers of Gautama, the monks, were admired for being just like wild animals.
Lately I am cognizant of the feeling of mind, of thought. I sit and I sometimes relax into the activity of the posture, and toward the end of the sitting especially there’s a definite feel to the edge of the stretch I find myself in. Sometimes I notice there’s a feel to the edge of the thoughts I find myself in, I’m not too good at calming myself down but maybe the visual thinking is like that (and the wild kingdom)?
