ok. You’re “there” from my perspective. From your perspective, you can say “I’m here”, meaning you to me, and ‘me’ to you.
[not meaning “me – Kenneth Udut’ but ‘me – Jes Scott’]
At this moment, thoughts are going through your head. Impressions. Some words, mostly feelings, maybe a song and some images.
A lot of work is spent with the words though. Phonological loop gets new stuff inserted based upon cues from the external environment and also from whatever arises within.
We have a tiny space to manage all of this in and very little time. Seems to be about 6 seconds total or so before it fades onto the next set of thoughts.
To continue thinking about something you have to reinforce it.
In the case of music it’s easy because it seems to loop by itself. [why earworms get stuck in our heads].
Yet it happens at a lot of levels at once, all within this tiny little window of time and “mental space”.
So what do you do with all of the impressions coming at you from the outside, from the inside and the processing as it’s happening?
Navigate it. Best you can.
There’s some simple rules you can apply that can help. At least they help me. I don’t know if they’re universal.
But that’s the kind of stuff I’ve been working on.
Oh even within a lot of the sciences, there’s plenty of mythology
I want to unravel all of it honestly. I haven’t found a “system” that seems to “do it all” just yet. The Sciences are too fragmented, too numerical to accomplish everything. We use the latest technology to form our metaphors about consciousness, which is fine in helping us comprehend to some degree, but all metaphors are limiting things ultimately.
There’s a religious and mythological component within the sciences that’s there – I suppose it’s necessary for it to function, but it’s important to recognize it when it shows up.
