It should be noted that the wilful disposal of thought implies a degree of suppression. However, much of the emotional content of the thought is exhausted by the limited review of each created thought train. It is impossible to completely reduce the influence ofthoughts because the process of reviewing itself creates more thoughts. That is, the process of thinking about thoughts itself leads to more thoughts. Therefore, there has to be a compromise: one has to release most of the emotional tension of the thoughts, but after a short period of time one has to suppress in order to create new thoughts. There is not enough time available to spend a long period following one train of thoughts. Therefore, one has to accept a small amount of suppression.
