While relaxing by a stream, Lohbado contemplated the nature of thinking. He imagined one aspect of thinking is to examine objects, perhaps like a child in a kindergarten. Someone dumps a pile of toys on a rug. The child selects whatever strikes their fancy. To choose one toy doesn't mean the child doesn't like other toys. Conflict occurs when someone insists their toy is the best toy and other toys are inferior. Conflict intensifies when someone tries to shut down discussion and stifle imagination, while insisting on doing things according one's personal preferences, overriding the interests and wishes of others.
