How About "Thought Occurs"

I don't like "Thoughts do". The first thing that pops in my head with that phrase is "Thoughts do what?"

Or are we all trying to avoid the obvious "Thoughts exist". I know I do not like that phrase because it has connotations of solidity as if you could stack your thoughts on the table if you wanted to. To me a thought is the essence of "a figment of your imagination" which is totally counter to "thoughts exist".

I think it is all communication. We have to decide we agree on something. How about "Reality is a set of numbers"?

I enjoy this forum very much. Sorry I haven’t written lately, I still follow your Journal very closely.

Have fun -- Dick
