I have had a stream of thought that I felt like posting.
1. I was reading the Wikisocion type descriptions and noticed this in the SEI one:
2. This reminded me of a line in the Vin Diesel movie "Strays" that I watched the other day... where the main character says that he has to buy a Snapple before going into the theatre because the movie theatre soda gives him a headache, simple as that. (I'm not saying that his character was Si ego, as I thought the character was clearly Se ego, but I thought that was a trivial example of Si.)Originally Posted by Wikisoc
3. This then led to recalling an appt with the eye doctor last year... I went to the eye doctor (because I've never been to one before) and because I sometimes see these bright light changes in my eyes... I thought something might be wrong with my eyes. The eye doctor told me that actually that particular thing has nothing to do with my eyes but more to do with migranes and blood pressure changes affecting the brain... (and that you can have a migrane without feeling like you have a headache at all, which is the case ~20% of the time with migranes). He told me that if you pay attention you can actually figure out what brings on these vision changes/migraines... that it's often simple things in one's diet, etc. He then gave me a whole spiel about his own self-study about this sort of thing and what he'd noticed about his diet etc. and various vision things. He had it very well catalogued and available off the top of his head. He seemed very good with Si.
4. If Si understands how to reach and recreate these sorts of physical states... then can I symmetrically say that Ni knows how to reach and recreate certain *mental* states to some degree? And perhaps it is this attention to such mental states that corresponds with a strong experience of the flow of time? Watching ones changing mental states change creates a perception of time.
