neuroaster types again

To what extent (if any) is there a meaningful distinction between “attention” and “distraction” ? Is it not fair to say that “attention” and “distraction” are both forms of neural activity? Why do we never speak of anyone as having an extensive “awareness distribution span” ?

Would it be less vindictive and more constructive to speak of a given mind as either “hunting” or “gathering” instead of either “focused” or “wandering” ? How many unrecognized insights and discoveries have been made by minds prematurely dismissed as “wandering” by the report-card-manufacturing-industry we call a quote “education system” unquote?

How long will we, as a society, preserve our habitual distinction between “neurologist” and “educator” ? When will we learn that the brain can only be effectively programmed (“educated”) by people who intimately understand the most fundamentally important differences between successful and unsuccessful neuro-linguistic programming? When was the last time a report-card educated you?
