Equanimity dampens feedback loops, and most of our sensory field arises from feedback loops. Equanimity doesn't just make it easier to weather the storm, it practically removes the storm

I think the inner monologue is basically just feedback loops, with new sentences being a reaction to old ones, which is why it tends to go away when you stop reacting to inner voice

With enough dampening of feedback loops consciousness fades until it cuts out and you skip forward in time like general anesthesia until something kickstarts enough reaction to get the mind going again

Because feedback loops are naturally exponential, hitting cessation doesn’t actually require being that much more equanimity than being anxious. It just requires the exponent to hit a phase shift where it dampens, then stay with it until everything is gone
