Thinking and visual ragpicking.

We are at our best when we think the issues through and through. But there are distractions - external as well internal. A phone call, noise, television or even a running tap - these are external factors. Untrained mind (untrained to think), depression or man in the grip of vasanaas are internal. External factors can be overcome or eliminated by mind-control but the real problem occurs when we are faced with internal factors.
We are turning less and less as thinkers and more and more as visual rag pickers. A bit from here and a bit from there. Jack of all and master of none.
Easy to say that. But what can be done?
