Experts suggest ways to correct habits that keep us from resting well
Verified by Psychology Today
Interesting test but wrong conclusion. Suggesting that 'we don't really have a direct experience of what we're feeling right now, but only a memory' disregards everything we know about BEING in the moment, where we experience only what IS in that moment.
There seems to be a confusion about the meaning of 'experiencing/feeling' and 'thinking'. What we experience or feel is not necessarily the same as thinking and a memory of something may not be what was experienced.
Also, being in a state of fear affects the functioning of our brain; it can even cause our mind to go blank. When this happens there is indeed only a memory and the memory is flawed.
