The ability to think differentiates human beings from several other life forms. Human
thoughts, ideas, beliefs, emotions, and actions, whether conscious or subconscious, are all
considerably affected by the ability to think. What is thinking? Thinking could be defined
as the inherent process of connecting an existing store of information with the incoming
sensory data and converting them into conscious and subconscious thoughts, ideas, beliefs,
emotions, and actions that determine a person. Thus, thinking encourages individuals to
wonder about the universe, define natural phenomena, practice rituals and traditions, feel
sad at the loss of a loved one, or seek warmth when it is too cold. However, unless this
innate ability is controlled, trained, and developed, it could become a vestigial factor that harms more than it benefits. In other words, the uncontrolled and untrained thinking could
be responsible for crime, unethical practices, irrational thoughts, or self-defeating emotions.
Hence, in the interest of the individual as well as the society, it would be beneficial if the
human ability to think is effectively controlled, trained, and developed.
