Your post is very interesting and I can see how this could be extremely helpful to someone with a phobia or specific fear. However, a lot of people who suffer from anxiety could not tell you what's causing the feeling if their lives depended on it. Usually because the body is reacting to an old fear that isn't even around anymore it just got used to the fight or flight mode and still goes into it whether necessary or not. When it comes to mania, well that's just chemicals in your brain you can't control. Anxiety may be either a purely chemical thing, an experience induced thing, or a combination or both. All I know for sure is doctors aren't in complete agreement on that one yet.
I would like to read the works you referenced though, education is always a positive thing. Thanks for your response.
