Seconded (after working with this concept-handle for a day). This here seems to be the exact key for (dis)solving the way my brain executes self-deception (clinging, attachment, addiction,).

(I'm noticing that in writing this, my brain is fabricating an option that has all the self-work results I envision, without any work required)

I find that [letting go of the (im)possible worlds where I'm not trapped] helps reframe/dissolve the feeling of trappedness. 

However, that kind of letting go often feels like paying a large price. E.g. in case of sensory overload it can feel like giving up on having any sense of control over reality/sensory-input whatsoever.

Does that maybe get at what you were asking?


It all does! Again, thanks for sharing.

Exciting stuff. This feels like a big puzzle piece I'd been missing. Have you written more about this, somewhere?

~vague gesturing at things I find interesting:

-How do different people (different neurotypes? different childhoods? personality types?) differ in the realities they want to share? 

-How do shared realities relate to phenomena like extraversion, charisma, autism?

-What's the significance of creating shared realities by experiencing things together?

Besides, do you use other neglected people-models that are similarly high-yield? Vague gesturing appreciated.

Problem: Abyss-staring is aversive, for some (much) more than for others. 

In my case, awareness hasn't removed that roadblock. Psychedelics have, to some degree, but I find it hard to aim them well. MDMA, maybe?

Example: Dividing the cake according to NEEDS versus CONTRIBUTION (progressive tax, capitalism/socialism,)

Back in February 2020, the vast majority of people didn't see the global event of Covid coming, even though all the signs were there. All it took was a fresh look at the evidence and some honest extrapolation.

Looking at recent AI progress, it seems very possible that we're in the "February of 2020" of AI.
