So is meta-awareness training also know as getting diagnosed for bipolar disorder?
I kid of course, not about bipolar disorder, I understand how serious and scary that is, but that all these different selves people are talking about in the thread sound like an attempt to be bipolar
Not at all.They're constructs to understand and convey. A great part of brain activity is not done in conscious thought. Heart rate,breathing, the complex movement of walking or just staying in balance are done in back ground and for less of a better word automated.To a great extent, a developed swing is too. The unconscious rules our world more than we appreciate. Live on 4 hours of sleep for 6 months or a year and it becomes apparent that an awful of good work & housekeeping of the soul gets done in deep REM sleep.
I could once play to 7-8 cap by allowing unfettered unconscious to do it's job. Started "fixing" ingrained, flawed swing I was more like 10-12 for 2 seasons. This year back to peak but higher ceiling and floor are both revealing themselves. What's clear is that mental aspect through all of it was left too neglected and has hampered progress. There's solid biological reasons for the this and much of it resides in how the brain does and does not work. It also sheds light on why most all scratch players began the game in youth and those that did not have less than .01% chance of ever doing so. Or why a Faldo, a Tiger took years to yield improvements on what was already damn good.
"Meta" is respecting and not fighting that reality with flawed "thinking". It's re-directing intelligence to navigate through all this. It's about not compounding body stupid with conscious stupid. It if means having self1, self2 construct to comprehend, to convey,so be it.
The real life scratch players I've come across innately get this stuff, there's a mental maturation they crossed to and possess. Also their swings' possess key principled elements that has allowed their play to flourish. So there's a chicken/egg aspect to this too. Flawed mechanics, hampers mental maturation and poor thinking hampers unlocking best swing more often and improving upon it. It's all co-dependent and too often it's easy to lose sight of that virtuous/destructive relationship.I know I have,so hence my interest in this topic.
