Juanita llorando, Perico caliente

In David Bohm's view:

...the general tacit assumption in thought is that it's just telling you the way things are and that it's not doing anything - that 'you' are inside there, deciding what to do with the info. But you don't decide what to do with the info. Thought runs you. Thought, however, gives false info that you are running it, that you are the one who controls thought. Whereas actually thought is the one which controls each one of us. Thought is creating divisions out of itself and then saying that they are there naturally. This is another major feature of thought: Thought doesn't know it is doing something and then it struggles against what it is doing. It doesn't want to know that it is doing it. And thought struggles against the results, trying to avoid those unpleasant results while keeping on with that way of thinking. That is what I call "sustained incoherence".

Gran verdad! Esto ya lo constate muchas veces en la vida real, o en el universo simulado de las películas - quizás todavía mas real, porque depurado. Entra Juanita a casa, contenta. Se encuentra con Perico, también contento. Los dos tuvieron un buen dia. Empiezan a hablar, y por casualidad sale el tema del salario de Perico, y de como le pagan mas a fulanito. Y entonces Juanita le dice que la culpa es de Perico en realidad, que no sabe venderse. Y Perico se calienta, y todo se va al carajo. Juanita llorando, Perico caliente. Desastre, todo mal. Porque? Como? Quien quería esto? Pura deriva conversacional! las ideas fluyen sobre la gente, modifican a la gente (que creen ser esas ideas), pero realmente no hay nadie detrás de las bambalinas. La intención, el YO es una ilusión, esta clarísimo!
