    Mike — reading your message a couple of times, and meditating on it from time to time, I can see that it makes sense what you say: the concept of unlearning is not real. There’s no unlearning, except the general tendency of the brain to rinse the neuron circuits continuously over time. Once thought passes again through a circuit, that circuit is hardened again, refreshed so to say. But there is not process of speeding up the rinsing/washing. Sleeping helps I see, to cool down the activity of hardening circuits.

    Don– I know you mentioned some techniques to shift attention. Those are helpful in keeping away from hardening unwanted circuits, I’m sure. I’m all for shifting attention, I just don’t believe in a certain technique. I have a way to put my attention on what I wish, without force, which became natural to me over time. I relax, I just understand at the moment that something else is more important and I find that important thing.
