The Shallows, cont'd. (3)

...our unconscious thought processes don't engage with a problem until we've clearly and consciously defined the problem. If we don't have a particular intellectual goal in mind...unconscious thought does not occur.

-- Nicholas Carr, The Shallows, p. 119

My brain has been playing that language in a loop for a day now.
