Is Introspection Possible?
I pose the question, Is Introspection possible? What I mean is, if introspection is generated by the brain, then how can one observe his own thoughts by generating his own thoughts? I would like to make an analogy to the eye, one can't see his own eye with his own eye. Similarly we also have trouble smelling our own bodily stenches and interpreting how our voice sounds vs how it actually sounds. On the other side, many people tout introspection techniques as being pivotal in understanding themselves and counteracting destructive patterns of behavior. What do you believe?
