Quantum thought

Quantum thought. This is not how we are socially taught to think. Socially we are taught that you have to have a point of view, you have to have an answer, you have to pick a side, pick your tribe, fit in, then defend it, and be consistent. But the reality is really complicated.

If you are really smart, and you are operating on the edge of any field, or try to figure out anything new, you probably need to have quantum thought. You probably have to hold both states in your head, constantly weighting probabilities. And if you are not shifting back and forth, then either you are not doing anything cutting edge, or you are not being intellectual honest with yourself.
