    Surgeons replace one of your neurons with a microchip that duplicates its input-output functions. You feel and behave exactly as before. Then they replace a second one, and a third one, and so on, until more and more of your brain becomes silicon. Since each microchip does exactly what the neuron did, your behavior and memory never change. Do you even notice the difference? Does it feel like dying? Is some other conscious entity moving in with you?

    Systems, systems, systems. Mostly biological.

    I think about the interconnectedness of systems, connections between various components (such as people or planets) within a given system, the influence of systems on organisms, and the organization of systems.

    Every once in a great while I think about sex...but generally in terms of its function within the system.

    It kind of changes with what I'm doing. It really depends on what is going on in my environment. I like to think about philosophical things, such as the universe and how people love, but it has to be in the right environment. I do think interpersonal relationships are a very common presence in my head. People are the most common source of stress for me. I spend a lot of time just trying to understand.

    Sex, too.. love thinking about sex.

    I usually think of why society is the way it is and why all the norms we consider normal are "normal". I also tend to think a lot about motivations of people.

    With these thoughts flying through my head, I can't ever just let go and be in the moment.

    That.

    My mind is constantly springboarding.

    Lots of trying to incorporate details and experiences and newly acquired info into a broader understanding of "life," though; that's always been the gist... understanding life as a comprehensive entity/system.

    Yeah, those are more specifics that often come to mind for me too.

    One of the biggest NT flaws, imo.
    It's an acquired taste too.
    Earlier in life, "being in the moment" can seem almost repulsive due to its thoughtlessness.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I'd love to just be in the moment whenever, but it just doesn't work out. I can't seem to do it unless I've just been in a life threatening situation or maybe been on some sort of drug.

    I think about loads of stuff all at once. I noticed how bad it was this last week as i had a physics exam today and a maths exam last thursday and i realised about 20 in total that part of my mind was thinking about other total random stuff. Heres a list of stuff i thought about during my exams (both at SQA AH level which is about 1rst year uni in most countries):

    This years school show
    My sister
    Conn Iggulden books - which i strongly recomend as they are great.
    Two old friend who I no longer really talk too
    The differences between my style of thinking and my friends style of thinking (hes an ISTp) and which would be better in this exam situation.
    Black Holes
    Spending a gap year property developing
    The effects of red rooster a higher energy and caffine drink
    The effects of eating the same thing for dinner and the next mornings breakfast
    University courses
    Why differentiating the formula for volume of a sphere 4/3Pi(r^3) gives 2x the formula for area of a circle 2Pi(r^2)

    Its no wonder both exams were tight for time even if not very hard.
    "I'd never die for my beliefs, I might be wrong"

    "Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!
