fast, two-way communication between system 1 and system 2; alternative to calibration and subjective probabilities?

[New? Start here:]

Using natural frequencies in lots of different ways may become as big a thing for me as Coherence Therapy. I’m always looking for stuff that nails what my brain is already doing, so that I can learn to deliberately, consciously work with actual, immediate levers within consciousness, to be able to do things I couldn’t possibly have done before. This hints at ways to get fast, two-way communication between System 1 and System 2.

(This last one gives me pause, regarding predictions under this regime. Comments and citations appreciated.)
