Learning to Walk
People just walk straight without thinking about it, but perhaps if they thought about walking "not straight" then they would start to do that. Imagination has the same application in regards to thinking, in that we don't realize that we have an unconscious tendency to walk and think straight. When we learned to walk, perhaps we first learned how to take steps, but almost immediately afterwards, we learned to walk for a specific purpose - in order to get somewhere. And when we "learned" to think, we learned to think about things, perhaps when we developed language, we first used it to understand basic thoughts, and at some point we probably remembered we were thinking.
Let me backtrack on the walking analogy. Perhaps when we were young, two things occurred - one, a tendency to take steps, and two, a tendency to want to go places. when we realized we had the capability to go places, it was because we matched it with our tendency to take steps. Then we could walk places. In thinking, we perhaps wanted to understand things (past our basic, let's say 'perceptual' impressions). We noticed that we had thoughts, and then we noticed that we could use them to understand things better.
So: if we notice we are taking steps, we notice it in the context of going somewhere, (for example, to the refrigerator, or the mall). It is perhaps natural (maybe only for some people) to imagine, after we have noticed taking steps, that the steps are actually independent of going anywhere. It is, for example, possible to step in place and not get anywhere. And then, since we have noticed the application of going somewhere with our steps, we then imagine other applications that steps could have, such as walking in a zig zag line ('the grapevine' would be a practical application of this pattern of walking), or maybe walking into things, or perhaps stepping on our own feet (the possibilities are endless.) If we were to do either of the last things mentioned - step on our own feet or walk into things, we perhaps could be categorized as having a walking disorder. Perhaps it would become a walking disorder when we forgot the basis for our new stepping pattern (it may have been unconscious, or we may have been too young to remember the imagining involved in creating it) and went to our doctor to report a problem in our walking. I think it will not be especially hard to extrapolate these premises to be used analogically to think about thinking, and the basis of mental disorder. Obviously there are a lot of other factors involved.
Emotional ideas as revelatiosn
The idea that things like a spouse suffering from their spouse’s pain introduced as a revelation, versus normalized as the obvious – (seems politically correct?) Maybe it should stay as a revelation, so that people can remember it better that way, but more importantly, can associate this concept, which they likely have emotional intuition about, with revelation, so that they associate things that they feel emotionally towards as being revelatory, and therefore look for new revelations with a similar emotional attitude as they feel towards this one of the spouse thinking of a certain thing.
The idea that people can empathize with their spouses feelings, and then if that’s inspiring them to have a revelation, the fact that they can feel these things/do feel these things will later further their revelations
I’m really into people feeling things.
