Trouble in Hong Kong…

an outsider's perspective of hong kong

what if before you do something, you could see 50 different outcomes and scenarios as the result to your decision?

do you think intelligent people constantly suffer from the notion of over thinking a situation preventing them from actually living their lives?

i think so.

i am dying to watch this movie limitless and the fact that bradley cooper is in this movie is like rainbow sprinklers on my ice-cream!! don’t you think bradley looks like a young version of ralph fiennes( who was so damn hot in the english patient)

limitless talks about bradley cooper’s character taking this drug that unleashes the mind’s fullest potential. i often think about einstein and what he said about us using only about 10% of the mind’s actual capacity and that to me is an awful waste of brain power.

but what happens when you are too smart?

i know of intelligent people and what has continue to fascinate me about them is the layering process to their thoughts. it’s like as though they look at something and they see many layers into a situation – sometimes i do think it’s tiring and confusing.

like for example – i have this friend and she said to me – i hope that when i meet a good guy, i have the wisdom to recognize this. but life is life – you cannot live it out of mind. no one knows the outcome to anything so therefore it’s better if you actually live it out..

the mind as i realized is sometimes your biggest foe. every time, you think – this is my threshold, you would be surprise where your threshold really lie. there is no threshold.

anyways, i am dying to watch limitless. can’t wait for it be released here!!!

  1. Oh, overthinking is way true for sure. I see it almost on a daily basis at work. British educator Sir Ken Robinson said that highly educated people often have a very noticeable personality defect: “…everything takes place up their [i.e. in the head] … as if the body is just a transport system for the brain.”
