Good to hear you are still Clicking.
First! Imagination it is the language between conscious and subconscious, between emotion and logic, it is a two way thing. Also your mind never stops unless you are in a state of coma or worse. This leads to it filling in the quiet times when you are not fully engaged or focused on something else. Daydreaming or the “mind worms”. This is perfectly normal so nothing to Click on or Positive.
However your impulse to keep checking indicates an issue. This seems to me that you might be blocking out something worse in an OCD like way or procrastination, escaping something you are more afraid of, even if that is a fear of further boredom. Sort of a subconscious self-protection measure. This fear or trauma is perhaps what needs the Clicking.
Now for even more conjecture. The music and or video clips that make the mind worm have an emotional connection. Consider a romantic interlude or an action hero James Bond type sequence, these sorts of overdone hollywood basic appeal to some lack in our ordinary humdrum lives. The filmmakers art is to make us connect emotionally to their characters, the more connection, the better you like and remember the film. So no surprise that we “fill in” our quieter moments with some fantasy, again it seems normal to me, no clicking required. It is however the subject matter that you “repeat”that might give a clue as to perhaps what you feel you lack in your life. this then is where PSTEC might help.
Over to you
