I would suggest that the KEY to understanding the workings of the brain is to CONTROL consciousness.
I would suggest that the reason atheism struggles with this concept of taking control of consciousness is because it believes consciousness is all there is and things just happen automatically.It believes that the thing that takes CONTROL doesn’t actually exist.
I would suggest that the individual brings oneself (BY TAKING CONTROL) into the moment and tries to stay there.The individual won’t be able to stay there,they will TOGGLE!!!!! back out of the moment automatically until the individual takes CONTROL again.So this process continues unabated.
I would suggest that the individual shouldn’t be just taking control in this way every now and again,the individual should be taking control potentially in every moment initially as an exercise to prove to oneself how little control one has over this consciousness toggling process.
As I say atheism doesn’t try to control consciousness in this way because it claims in UNAWARENESS that there is no SELF (I am) which actually exits to be able to do it.Therefore,it doesn’t do it.
The more the individual tries to control consciousness the better the individual gets at it and becomes aware of how these consciousness control interactions are also connected to the ENGAGEMENT with thought types of which there are two manual and automatic.
I would suggest that the above could be termed as OUTWARD meditation techniques.
