Salaam, brother. I hope you're doing well. I was wondering. Why do people in the Western seem to come up with theories so easily? It's like, as an Asian person, I'm kinda envious of them. Are we just different in way of thinking and approach in life, also in character?
Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,
I cannot really say, but it it is a fact that Asians (for example the Japanese) show much less interest in open-ended and non-practical topics like philosophy. Maybe reading science fiction, classical literature and philosophical works will help you acquire the same mental patterns.
