Thoughts versus “felts”
Johnnie Moore has a blog post about David Bohm. In part it reads.
Elsewhere in his work, Bohm sets the bar high in his definition of what constitutes thinking. He suggests that much of what passes for thought in our lives is really the repetition of conditioned responses, provoked by old feelings. He labels those as “felts” rather than thoughts. I think this more rareified idea of what thinking is relates closely to his conception of creativity.
It’s well worth a read.
