Thinking I

When you think about something or someone, the object seems to actually be present. Whether it is a past thing or a future thing, something in the room or far away, an animal, a vegetable, or a mineral, it seems to be right there. Usually it seems to be in front. Sometimes it seems to be in some other direction.

When you think about something else, the first thing disappears and the new thing appears. How does that happen?

I think I've figured this out: First I thought of a pound of hamburger. Then I thought of a dog and the hamburger disappeared. The dog must have eaten the hamburger!
