August you seem to have learned a lot about CMT and are adding a rich, exciting component to how I have been thinking about the theory. I like what you said about
pathogenic beliefs being " a part of one's horizon of meaning, of how we
make sense of and participate in the world. These horizons, abstractly,
are neither good nor bad, they just are. We as humans collectively have
deep, foundational notions of "the good" or virtue or meaning, which we
variably strive towards as a project of our being-in-the-world." It adds a dimension of the strength and "landscape " quality of beliefs that I struggle to express, and I think one of the reasons that they are so hard and slow to change. You are most welcome to share your ideas as they develop.
