    How is Enantiodromia nonsensical? Bullshit maybe; but nonsensical? Not.

    I think concentrating is the same as paying attention, right? Or maybe I lost the thought somewhere along the way...

    @Mal+ Do you ever have to concentrate intensely on something in an extremely detailed manner?

    For example as I've said many times one of my hobbies is painting miniatures and it can be very difficult for me to stick to task when painting, usually I have several different projects on the go at once so once my attention wanes I can jump to another. Of course over time I have become better at focusing on one at a time, not sure if doing this actually helps my concentration or not though.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.

    I can have issues with this.. it especially sucks reading a page in my textbook, only to realize I don't know anything about what I just read. I can't even tell you the topics on the paragraphs. So I end up taking a long time studying just because I have to re-read a lot.

    If it's written stuff, writing it down usually helps even though that's annoying. With vocal stuff, I usually try to figure out if I can ask a question on the topic, and that helps me stay on track. If it's details, I try to make something up so that I can memorize the details.. like a routine of sorts.

    There's actually tons of information out there for ADD/ADHD people on concentration methods.. those guys probably know how to deal with this better than I would.

    When I was in elementary school, I could memorize the contents of the blackboard and write it all down while all the other students' heads were bobbing up and down from blackboard to paper. I would then proceed to correct the teacher's spelling and grammar mistakes.

    Now... I'm just a spelling/grammar nazi with a shitty memory who can't concentrate.
