Thought 224: Thinking as Skill


"[There] is not even a dim recollection of the fact that
thought requires a technique, a plan of study, a will to mastery, –
that thinking wants to be learned like dancing, 
as a type of dancing..."

– Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols


Thinking is a skill that can be honed through practice, repetition and discipline. 

The same can be said of thought communication, i.e. the sharing of one's thoughts.
