What if thoughts take time?

We are born. We plant a tree.
We plan. Trees grow. We die.
Trees die. Plans are shelved.
We are born. Trees are born
and form woods. Underground
their brains are growing. We die.
Plans are shelved. Underground
the brains keep growing. Slowly.

What if thoughts take up space?
