The city is not a concrete jungle, it’s a human zoo-Desmond Morris

Concrete Jungle

“What is nice about concrete is that it looks unfinished” Napoleon Hill

Do you agree with the quote by Desmond Morris?

He says

“Some people call the city a ‘concrete jungle’ — but jungles aren’t like that. Animals in jungles aren’t overcrowded. And overcrowding is the central problem of modern city life. If you want to look for crowded animals, you have to look in the zoo. And then it occurred to me: The city is not a concrete jungle- it’s a human zoo” Desmond Morris

Now coming to human thinkers.

Are you aware of concrete thinking and abstract thinking?

My friend, human brains are simply complicated.

Concrete thinking refers to thinking superficially. Concrete thinking is concerned with the physical, the here and now.

Abstract thinking is thinking more deeply.

If a concrete thinker sees a tree, the person just says the leaves are green.

Abstract thinkers go one step ahead and think about why the leaves are green.

“Some minds are like concrete, thoroughly mixed and permanently set” Unknown

“One may see through a wall, if there’s a hole in it” German Proverb

    I can depend. Like, I prefer the second picture to the first. The second one does look undone, and so something else can be created with it.

    I guess it is a zoo, with all the similarities of human experience repeated over and over again. With a few animals staring out and wondering.
