Conditioning and Deconditioning
I’ve been hearing a lot about deconditioning on these forums and from some of the most knowledgeable members here. I think Xenolith has probably developed the theory the most and has certainly examined it in the most sophisticated manner. However, the theory is obviously beholden to physiological processes of conditioning. That is, without conditioning the theory of deconditioning is mostly worthless. So far the best evidence we have for conditioning comes from personal experience. My question is, what are the physiological processes that could explain a phenomena of conditioning? I really haven’t found a full explanation for these on the forums, although I know that some of the more advanced members have alluded to the mechanisms as very complicated.
If we can outline the processes of conditioning in a precise manner (obviously a difficult task) we can start to speculate methods for preventing conditioning and accelerating deconditioning.
(Perhaps this could me moved to the main member forum?)
