A more accurate description is that the "attachments" still remain, you just
aren't attached to them anymore. Their nature doesn't really change, they
just cease to control you, or to worry you.

KCHGA relies on *familiarity* with the "conscious will devoid of personal
interests" to use BR's phrase again. After experiencing such a state enough
times, the memories and bedrock of experience allow you to keep these
"attachments" in their proper perspective when they threaten to gain control
again. They don't go away, but you've seen them for the phantasms they are
with sufficient frequency that you simply don't get fooled by them any more.
Hence, "invoke often". Familiarity with that state (or "conversation with
your HGA") allows you to benefit without constantly being in that state
(which would be "becoming your HGA" I suppose).

That's about all there is to it. No amount of intellectualising can replace
this experience. Indeed, it is more likely to give fuel to such phantasms.
Talking about "personalised experience and idealized visions" is one thing,
but the moment you begin to mistake them for reality you're paddling through
your own shit. Reality comes from the outside in, not the other way round.
