Giving Things A Mind Of Their Own - Deepstash

Giving Things A Mind Of Their Own

  • We give things a mind when we can’t truly understand why something has happened.
  • Studies reveal that people report that unpredictable gadgets seemed more mindful than predictable gadgets.
  • When geometrical figures assume personal characteristics, a unified structure emerges. Unpredictable objects get a mind because a mind makes sense of action.
  • When something needs to be explained, mind reading is engaged. We give things a mind to give them meaning. Otherwise, we can’t understand.
