Wideawakeness works like a re-format in the alpha-thinking drive.
Without a trace of volition or doer-ship, tick-tock thinking undergoes transformation.
In the main, that means the withering, unhooking, dissolving of habitude. It means the brain relaxes into its natural state, ever-fresh, ever alert, ever aware.

Look very closely and you’ll find
that the Knowingness of every experience, addictive or not
