A direct and better way of transforming the impulses Usually when you see images of women/men or in real life, it could turn you on or makes you wish you were in a relationship with them. That can be really distracting and time consuming as you probably have noticed. In some instances it involves much rethinking or even addiction. Next time when this occurs, when you see an attractive person in real or not real life, implement a better reaction to the first impulses that come from when you see the person(s). Every time there are some kind of more simple initial impulses when you see an attractive person. We are biological used to transform those first impulses into certain next thoughts/feelings related to getting more in touch with him/her for eventually procreation. That's also what I meant with the different layers in my previous post. First one is the more simple impulses, next layer is the following processing you do with it. The key with this is that you can train to very rapidly transform those first impulses into something else that isn’t problematic for you. It is all the same neuro-energy in different pathways in the brain. For example next time you see someone on screen or IRL, try to simply feel happy from those first impulses you get, or see that impulse as some creative thought coming to you, or maybe something funny. Or feel like you discovered something new scientifically important. This transforming is a short simple thing to do, no difficult long thinking step in between of what you’re going to do with it. Then it wouldn’t be practical. In many ways it can be converted, you just have to try several times and see for yourself what works best. It's not something that came to me after thinking how to do it, more that it was invented during those situations. Therefore it’s difficult to explain.
