The assumption that the Earth can stop spinning is far-fetched. But, what if something changed the Earth's rotation? Let's assume the Earth stopped spinning gradually.

Fantasizing about dramatically quitting your job by shouting at your boss and trashing the computer before exiting the building is a huge red flag that something needs to be corrected in your work life.
When work is a nightmare, it is natural to slip into daydreams of rage-quitting, but it can hinder any practical steps we need to take to rectify the situation. One needs to find the underlying cause or the issue that is making them dream about quitting furiously.
When you're stuck, you need feedback. You need information that tells you what you're doing well and where you're going wrong.
We all have areas in our lives where we'd love to see positive and meaningful change. But sometimes, we don't know how to keep moving forward. We do research and think of strategies. We try to implement a few tactics, but then we get stuck. We are unsure if we are going in the right direction.

The past mostly regrets, and the future is anxiety and worry. The only thing that is real is the present moment, and the art of mindfulness delves into the present, instead of being in dreams or illusions.

All negative emotions have their root in fear. Jealousy, anger, envy, guilt and regret are branches of fear only.
The emotion of regret, especially self-regret, can be all-consuming to our minds and destructive to our wellbeing, having the ability to destroy lives. When a person cannot forgive himself, his life is at a standstill.
Using the ability to simulate the brain gathers outside information and integrates it with what it already knows and what is associated with it.
Then it combines these signals and computes in various ways to perceive and guide the corresponding action.
