The previous post started out more spontaneusly, and then morphed into a somewhat more balanced view.
When we emphasize immediate experience, we emphasize zone 1 (subjective experience) of the left quadrants in the AQAL framework. Here, it is indeed important to allow abstractions to go, and rest in what is with some sincerity.
For the other zones and quadrants, abstractions are appropriate and useful, as long as we take them as just that – abstractions. The map is never the terrain.
