Caught in the intellectual trap of chasing one's tail has no answers that respond to "why". The "reason"? The brain cannot discern the subtle energy of the MIND realm, thus it cannot direct the ATTN aspect of Consciousness to what it does not know. So, when your ATTN (one of the two aspects of Consciousness, the other being AWAR) is fixed within the Left-Hemisphere of your brain, you cannot "see" what actually lies behind both introjection and retrojection. It's like riding inside an elevator going down, and then up, and then down, and then up...and by doing this, seek to answer the question: what's allowing the elevator to go up and down. Or, what causes one do do a particular behavior? Is it the external stimulus? If it is, then everyone subjected to that stimulus would "react" in precisely the same way, right? But people don't, and then we are left with what? The same question. The answer cannot be "known" by your brain, that's the problem. But, take heart. I'm initiating an alternative to psychology as it currently exists, and I call my new approach Esochology (eso-ka-logy). If interested, check out http://www2.whidbey.net/minder. Regards.
