The vast majority think, that it is unavoidably that you become historical limited.
Against this you can put the question about, whether there at all are anything, which is unavoidably – except death, perhaps; whether the inevitable process not is a thought-process.
In philosophical counseling there is neither answered yes or no.
On the contrary, the guest is being encouraged to be this inevitable process present in passive listening. And this presence is not mechanical.
But if the mind on the contrary is the thought-process absent, either conscious distancing ifself from it, or unconscious being absent in it, yes, then it becomes mechanical.
