Thinking

How much misery do we create in the world

By overthinking the wrong things

And underthinking the right ones.


As I type this, I note that the spell-check function

In the text editor

Recognizes "overthinking" as a word, but not "underthinking".

So confident are we that the problem is always thinking too much

And never not thinking enough.


I have a thinking feeling about this.


How about overfeeling and underfeeling?

It looks like those both earn a "not-a-word" flag.

So the computers are confident that no matter how much we are feeling,

It is always exactly the right amount, tautologically.


If only we were taught to logic instead.
