I should say it is “somewhat problematic”!! Nevertheless, it is critical to see how whatever we are immersed in, immerses our brains, and therefore changes us. Or perhaps it is the other way around?

You are what you think, but not in a The Secret sort of way. Not even in a “name it and claim it” Osteen way. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say “You are how you think”?
