I’m conscious that I’m an independent seeker of solutions and quite hard to sell to. I do in fact know my own mind and make choices for myself consciously, mainly because I worked in marketing for top brands and studied art & identities.
I also know that I have purposely changed my lifestyle so that I can notice distractions and study the art and science of how they affect our cognition.
My theory is that we don’t even notice anymore and can barely hear our own voice talking inside our heads. Our whole environment is polluted with cognitive distractions, selling something to think.
(A conscience reading from a previous post, what I’m aware of in observation)
