Caught in the Net

Humans are innately social creatures, since birth and a young age, our development is centred around connections with others – first familial relationships, and then larger social networks in which we belong. We thrive off such relationships, and when they’re removed that can lead to problems of loneliness, as we touched on in last week’s blog post.

I like to think of the mind as a network, a web of thoughts, ideas and memories that interconnect and weave together to create one whirring system. It is a network of ideas constantly buzzing between one thought and the next. We can often get lost in our mind as an insignificant thought can take you down a long and winding path that leads to great things or maybe just a dead end.
