    I've never heard anyone say they could stop thinking. Even when interacting or feeling, there are still thoughts going on, although maybe they're less mentally-challenging ones.

    In other words, I don't believe it.

    I don't think what BRM is saying differs much from what you are thinking. Everyone feels the same feeling (unless literally unable too i.e. sociopath) it just seems that the intensity of the feelings are far greater in those who place them in values. The roots run a great deal deeper.

    I've got a book in my to be read pile which suggests that most adult difficulties stem from the subconscious realisation that you've betrayed yourself and been a phony from the earliest years of childhood when you compromise your infantile rage in order to get the love of parents or carers.
    Oh man---that's right up my alley.

    I'm gonna have to check that out.

    Any particular book or webpage you'd recommend?

    Half of this makes sense the other half is all preference. Not everyone supresses rage, some supress hurt. Some people turn hurt into rage. I believe we all repress a portion of us. Who is to say that some dont repress thoughts, or drive, or anything. Why is it always feeling. What if our parents dont create rage in us. People put way to much emphasis into emotions that it leaves everyone else out.

    I can see way more things that cause rage to even begin to believe that rage is at the core.
    Im out, its been fun
