There are two ways of thinking. The first applies reason or logic to an idea or a topic - and it rattles around, really without a purpose - but rather than admitting it is lost, it provokes an argument - it tries to be right - or it defends against criticism.
Of course you can tell it is empty by the very sound of its rattle - so it makes more sound - an argument - to cover up its emptiness.
The second way of thinking starts out inchoate but full - full of feeling. And gradually translates that feeling into words.
But the words are different. The first are bright and quick but leave you unsatisfied while the second are at first hard to understand and are easy to dismiss but somehow they hit the spot.
What is that spot?
