All true. BUT, the difference biofeedback makes is this:
You’re CONSTANTLY comparing your thoughts and /or feelings with objective measurements. Not merely narratives but numbers and adjusting accordingly.
I first learned it in 3rd grade. Stutter correction. Created a little extra “space” in my mind to sort words out before speaking.
If I didn’t, they came out ALL at once, which led to a traffic jam in my mouth. Stutter.
I grew that space bigger. Biofeedback training at 11, hooked up to a computer. My feelings moved an 8-bit video game thing in 1983.
Throughout and since I’m constantly comparing my introspection with SOME form of measurement.
So, for example: THIS. Our talking. What is it for me? More biofeedback except I’m presenting to you and waiting for feedback and correcting or keeping.
That’s the solution to curing introspective illusion. I don’t get it because I’m constantly adjusting. What I think is as true as I can make it at that moment and as I’m always outputting, there’s always a mechanism in place for objectivity and correction.
The result is authenticity. I don’t worry about belief and illusion. I worry about bias – and that’s always up for correction. I’m not always easily convinced — that could be part of an illusion I hang onto , but introspection doesn’t get much of a foothold to be illusionary unless I hold it in and mull by myself. THEN it can be a problem which would lead to anxiety until outputted in some way for feedback purposes.
