Re: Attention. What is it? How do you know that you have enough?

Increased information uptake from the external environment (Doors of Perception open) - no working memory.
In the moment.
Working memory - I can feel a resistance to accepting anything into working memory (knowledge) unless it can be resolved into understanding.

'Any fool can know, the point is to understand' -- Einstein.
To refuse entry of information which I can see is flawed; working memory is hopelessly overswept by the increased information access which the ADDer has access to.
There's too much information to store.


What would happen if drowning in a flood of information - have to work to stay afloat by resolving it.


So - the idea would be to retract from the working memory paradigm into reflection?

I don't work in real-time. But real time isn't real time is it ?
Just social convention - that we must operate through speech and not writing.

Why do monasteries often prevent speech and encourage writing ?

If we imagine saccades much like a camera set on 'burst mode' - then the number of images coming through in ADHD is far increased over the nonADD state.
This principle feeds back into KD's two threads on HSP.

ADDers really are HSP.
