That response of yours examplifies *your own 
insight* into how each our - of us conditioning - environment 
can groove/incline us towards different blindly automated

For example: 

Janov's therapeutic and theoretical emphasis of 
the importance of allowing/facilitating new neural connections
that very much in depth dispell the defensively misconnected gating reflexes 
that preserve/perpetuate CURSES. 

A certain Primal Pain (CURSES) is not just a 
kind of memory (or engram) of a lifetime situation that 
caused signals being sent by one (or more) - for "pain detection"
specialized - neuron. 

It also is -- in agreement with your view of your "TD E/I-up/down" 
brain functional and behaviour-organizing principle --  
an increase in different glutamatergic firing frequencies 
(e.g. caused by a lack of instinctively required 
type of sensory input - e.g., from an absence of physical touch in 
an person's first months and years of life) that 
at certain frequency-thresholds trigger not just 
the realease of pain correlated signal substances 
such as substance P, and that at long enough durations of such 
stimulation/firing (and/or given a sufficient inhibitory competition 
from other actention modules within the Actention Selection System) 
get to be counteracted by opioids and/or GABA-ergic lateral inhibition (from the "competing" modules).

I can see where you are coming from. 
Shame on me. :->
