It's another way of labelling it ...instead of ''positive'' and ''negative'' thoughts, the new label is ''more attractive''....it's attractive to the story, but no one is there to be attracted to them.Attractive for who?
Is there someone being attracted to certain thoughts?
Where is this one?
As I tried to categorize the thoughts that appeared...there was a bit of confusion.1. Take a piece of paper and divide it in two parts.
- In one part you mark each thought which content points to the intake of senses,
- on the other part you make a mark for all thoughts which don't point to anything in DE, like into the so called future/daydreams/plans or past/memory.
2. Play around and notice thoughts during the day, and label them according to which category they belong to.
Although there were thoughts that didn't point to anything in DE, they were triggered by something that was seen or heard in DE. Would these thoughts be part of number 1 or 2?
There were twice as much thoughts that appeared which didn't point to anything in DE or were triggered by DE but came in a form of a memory/future, than something that was directly associated with the senses.
DE: I saw a quote on this page... a thought appeared that ''it could be used as a design mantra''.
Heard a song by Ludovico Einaudi ... a memory appeared about the time I showed that song to someone special.
Seeing the word Bauhaus in design ... a thought with lyrics of a song by the band Bauhaus appeared.
I saw my journal on the shelf...a thought appeared about the time my friend gave it to me as a gift.
Thoughts that had absolutely nothing to do with DE...
A thought about a friend appeared...next thoughts about future travels and other scenarios followed.
Lyrics of song with the word ''thought'' appeared...then a thought about this forum appeared.
A thought in a form of ''I should get a small gift for my friend'' appeared randomly.
