What are thoughts? Where do they come from, and where do they go when they disappear? Are they “filed” somewhere, a bit like memories, where we can find them again, or once a thought has gone is that it?

The daily things we do
For money or for fun
Can disappear like dew
Or harden and live on.
The circumstance we cause
In time gives rise to us,
Becomes our memory.
