Symbolic thinking is what allows humans to talk about past events, as well as to hypothesize about what may happen in the future. In other words, it allows you to get out of a current situation in order to evoke another reality , be it past or future.
This type of thinking allows you to go beyond what your senses are capturing in the present moment through memories and hypotheses.
Due to the highly unpredictable and uncertain nature of certain events, our opinion about the world has turned largely subjective and detached from reality, because reality itself has become elusive and hard to grasp.
Our mental projections and division of thoughts are creating unique representations about our world which have become our own truth.
