Do you think you ever thought a thought

Do you think you ever thought a thought
that nobody else thought before?
That even never was thought of before
in the whole history of our mankind?
Do you think you ever had an idea
nobody else had before?
Might there really be anything entering your mind
which has never ever
entered another mind before?
And what would this mean
regarding security and individuality?
I mean, if you cannot be sure of your own thoughts
– regarding the thesis that they might have been somebody else’s thoughts before –
what can you be sure of then?
Maybe it is just like the Indians once said
“We do not own the world, we just borrowed it from our children.”
Maybe it is the same with thoughts and ideas?
Maybe it is all about timing
and thoughts and ideas
have to enter different minds over and over again
until their time has come
to be put into practice
at the right time
in the right place
the right moment
with the right surrounding
and by the right person.
Do you think you ever thought a thought
that was never thought before?
