Pick a number, any number and I will tell you what you are thinking…
It can come from a missing text or a silent stare, a status update or a shift in body language. A million questions are sent flying through our synapses faster than the speed of light all to fill in the missing gaps. What does this mean? What are they thinking? Is it anything or everything to do with me? At the slightest whiff of doubt or missing information, we jump into action and set our minds to work. Racing through a million and one possibilities, we finally come to rest at the one which seems the most logical, unaware that we could be facing in totally the wrong direction.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who has ever put 2 and 2 together and come up with E=MC2 to the power of wrong. Who knew that being a mind-reader would be so exhausting?!
We are all so complex and perfectly unique that it is near impossible to see the world through anyone else’s eyes but our own.
… You were thinking of a purple penguin. See, told you I was a mind reader!
