Thinking Out of the "Shell"

Does a snail think outside or inside the "shell"? It seems like not putting the brakes on its thinking, and action. Its patience is the speed that gets it moving steadily from high to low, from low to high, and at where we cross each other.


It should have plenty of time to spend on thinking during travelling, if it thinks outside the shell. Does it think the mirror image of what I have thought? 


What does it see when thinking inside the hot and stuffy shell? It should not think inside the shell. The echoes of its sound of laughter can make it deaf, when thinking of something really funny, as funny as me.

I can't imagine a snail thinking that you are funny, unless you were trying to tell it a joke. In any case, I agree that he shouldn't be thinking inside the shell.

Cher said...

did you give the snail a tip on how to think outside of the shell?

I think a snail is so busy thinking in and out the shell that it forgets to walk:):)

I enjoy watching snails but rarely see them here in the desert.

You take great pictures and ask wonderful questions.

Hi Rainfield, what a cool looking critter. I do not think they have much to think or worry about. They should be carefree snails. Awesome photos. Have a great weekend!

Beautiful photos!

I never thought about that..then a turtle must share something in common? Well if I don't do something about the one's over here I'm not going to enjoy my squash!
Wishing you a good weekend-

I don't know whether a snail thinks inside or outside the shell, but I bet its thoughts are a little bit slow either way.

Ginnymo said...

That's a nice looking snail for sure. You sure do have deep thoughts.. But it does make me wonder now what they think..LOL

It moves slow and thinks too much so much, but I don't know if it can hear itself if it doesn't have ears.

your hobby is looking at insect houses. Looking for houses in not a hobby, it is time we bought our house.
