Thinking is a social act

Since conversation is thinking together, it is labor, we seek ways to avoid it. Simultaneously it hints at the essence of us, so with our fear we are fascinated: we do it all our days. We are in fact drawn to it and to one another. I want to find out what is in this other, between us, and therefore within me. We know we are more than we have thus far come. Thinking is a social act. When we think, we touch the world. We touch others who think; we touch those who do not think as we do: trees and fish, turtles and turkeys. What is it about thinking that can make muscles move?
