Through real-time inquiries during real moments of real life, FIML reveals the tools and thought processes of the engineer, as they are being used.
As the receiver of a FIML inquiry, you are asked to reflect on the moments just passing.
Your answer provides a lot of information to both you and your partner.
Your partner also has information and insights into what their mind was doing, how it was modeling you and planning a response.
These shared insights are the practical details of your psychologies as they are actually functioning in a real situation.
It is transformative to see these details often.
To do this, I think you have to use a method like FIML because FIML has no presuppositions. FIML does not ask you to believe anything; just do the method.
We should be looking for ways to effectively use drugs people already like and seek out on their own rather than ban them.
There is good evidence that psychedelics like psilocybin can do good things for people. A recent study confirms this.
Lead author of the study, Kelan Thomas, says:
This therapy has also demonstrated large effect sizes for improving symptoms on validated psychiatric rating scales, which suggests psilocybin-assisted therapy may be significantly better than the current treatment options only demonstrating small to moderate effect sizes. The other important distinction is that participants experienced dramatic improvements and higher remission rates after only a few psilocybin-assisted therapy sessions, which also appeared to persist for a much longer duration than current treatment options.” (Clinical review: Psilocybin therapy could be significantly better than current psychiatric treatments)
The study is here: Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy: A Review of a Novel Treatment for Psychiatric Disorders.
Psychedelics like psilocybin and LSD change awareness for several hours by changing brain connections. This brief change is the “high” many people enjoy.
This change provides dramatic evidence, or a dramatic example, to the brain of how it can be. Positive new connections can be formed while negative old connections can be extirpated.
At lower doses, psychedelics seem to make people both feel and act more creatively and positively.
