The cousin of a dear friend asks:
"I'm going to try to make a word for this idea if I can get some help from someone who knows Greek or Latin: “the suppression or eradication of a repetitive, useless, or unwanted thought or series of such thoughts, for the aim of giving way to the emergence of new, possibly more constructive or creative thoughts through rational substitution.” Any takers?"
I say, "cognitive de-fragmentation" or "cog-de-frag." But what do I know (and it's not a proper 'word' at all)? Any takers?

Comments are now open. I suppose this is as good a time as any, but I'll only post anonymous comments (and convert salient non-anon comments to the anonymous). Don't make me close the comments again, please.
