Which statement appeals to you the most?

Plato is known to have described – “[w]ithin the human mind or soul” – Reason “as being the natural monarch which should rule over the other parts, such as spiritedness and the emotions (Source of the Quote).”

Yasutani Haku’un, “the first abbot of […] an independent lay organization of Zen practice[,]” has been quoted as having claimed the following on the same subject:

“It is probably possible to control the brain so that no thoughts arise, but that would be an inner state in which no creativity is possible.”

Knowing too well that I am oversimplifying the core matter of focus here, I still want to take the liberty of raising my title-question: Which life view have you been housing inside; that is, if you haven’t changed lanes?
