Michael Webb joins Plutopians to discuss meditative inquiry, meditation practices and intelligence, experts, and much more.
It almost seems like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? To speak of thinking non-verbally. What the heck does that mean? And I would hasten to say, too, not only thinking non-verbally, but thinking without using mental images. That’s perhaps even more shocking, because some people can maybe learn to not cogitate. Maybe that inner voice quietens a bit? But they still might be thinking in terms of visuals – metaphors that they see. Even if they’re very subtle ones. But in this form of inquiry, even the mental images drop off. So it’s coming from a place of real silence, I guess you could say – silence and emptiness.
