yesterday I was cycling home and saw for about half a second, a little kid (5), talking to himself and throwing shapes like a character from a cartoon or something. He was ‘playing’.
For the rest of my short journey, I thought about when children are born, they probably can’t tell any difference between thoughts in their head and real life things. Infact whilst they’re in the womb, they’re only reliant on thoughts… so thats all they’ve got to work with. Once born the conscious brain starts to take over and inject some perspective into the child. I thought about how kids can’t tell the difference between real life and make-believe and the struggle they go through to understand how the world should operate. How parents, struggle to deal with their kids, because they can’t understand whats going on in their own childs head. Or maybe they do, but I’m just not aware of it.
I don’t know where I’m going with this, but I thought it… so I typed it. 🙂
