Just to answer that question, it all depends on what ur choosing or not choosing to think about, for example when im lonely or on my own far from family i choose to think of them and i choose not to think of being alone. This doesn't answer the question is it possible to "not think" while your conscious, i think it is because when you meditate or just relax sometimes you clear your mind. I have trouble with this evolution theory that we developed consciousness as a tool for survival , which is why are we the only ones with the evolutionary skills to do this. By records we (humans) have only been on this earth a fraction of its life time other animals have been here millions of years before us and haven't developed this skill. This leads us to the next question why are we the only ones? Its not like we have the biggest brains, we dont even have the best brain to body size ratio so why do we have consciousness?
