Linear thinking is the method of the limited mind, like you hear it talking in words inside your head. It is a slow operation mode, that cannot deal with a lot of information and runs flat in this way. Elevated levels of consciousness run in a loop collecting pieces and puzzle them together, but in faster speed than the linear model.
In computers we have multiprocessing to result the same, one program is split to several tasks, for running them in parallel. But the humans who invent this, are running in the limited linear mode. So it’s time to learn some more about this new available mode.
