This graphics was inspired by reading the book WORLD WITHOUT MIND (没有思想的世界)/Méiyǒu sīxiǎng de shìjiè/

The book analyses the damaging influence of huge technology firms such as Facebook, Amazon and Google on our individual and collective mind and on society in general. My highest recommendation!

思想 /sīxiǎng/ is THINKING and I personally perceive it in the sense “THE SUM OF ONE’S THOUGHTS” or THE NETWORK OF INDIVIDUAL THOUGHTS.

You can find it for instance in the term 毛泽东思想 /Máozédōng sīxiǎng/ The Thoughts (The Thinking) of Mao Zedong.

思 /sī/ is a part of 意思 /yìsi/ MEANING, SENSE

想 /xiǎng/ is TO THINK, TO MISS (home or friend), TO WANT (to do something)
