A typical psychologism. We do find answers. That’s why we keep overthinking things. The stress comes when you know how wrong things really are and you can’t change it because nobody else wants to think about it. Ignoring reality to “stop overthinking things” is how religions and marketers (redundant, I know) have managed to enslave the somnambulant masses with plenty of willing civilized participation (“It’s God’s will” “The Invisible Hand”, etc). There’s no such thing, really, as overthinking. It’s just wayyy outclassed by the profits of mediocre underthinking.
