What is identification?

This video explains Gurdjieff & Ouspensky’s concepts of identification and non-identification. It suggests that we are hypnotized by our stream of consciousness to such an extent that we were are asleep and dreaming, but that it is possible to be more aware and to wake up. The video shows that frequent cognitive reframing is required because of the inherent limitations of our brain and consciousness. Stress reduction and creativity is the outcome of learning about this technique.
