Thinking Consciously is Most Rewarding

Thinking consciously is a three stage process leading to an act or an expression. Firstness is not so much determined as processed, first by giving whatever comes up (the sign) a term, an identity, a word, etc. and then submitting it to a second which is an index or a challenge or a colander or a filter. Reality meets OUR reality. The result of this collision yields up thought and the result of thought is the third - life as we live it. AKA an act or an expression.  Thus, whatever the first is, or was, survives and is manifested as a result of a process. The more conscious this process is, 
the more obvious and 
rewarding. Or so I surmise.
