What is a conclusion?

What is a conclusion? Here is my definition:


A conclusion is a representation reached after thinking


Sometimes in life we become confused about certain things. In my experience, I will ruminate through related thoughts over and over until I reach a conclusion. This process is similar to pouring dirt into a glass of water, stirring the contents and waiting for the substance to settle. Once the substance has settled to equilibrium, I regard this as the conclusion. I always appreciate the conclusion because it feels as though my thoughts have become united into a coherent whole.
