Damn I've got to stop moving on mentally to a reality that doesn't exist yet.
Repeat after me, self: "Visualising an outcome and believing it happened without action leading to it's result is delusion"
Not very pithy though.
'Consciousness is not simply a sensory-perceptual affair, a matter of mental imagery, as the contents of our mind would have us believe. It is deeply enmeshed with the brain mechanisms that automatically promote action readiness' - Jaak Panksepp
