Uptime and Downtime
Sometimes we are concentrating on the external world, and sometimes we are reflecting and thinking about something. Uptime is what we call the state when we are attending to things in our environment, and downtime is when we are looking within and thinking.
When we considered submodalities and especially when we considered modelling, we noted that we could, for example, view something in the external world (Ve) or view something internally (Vi). The Vi refers to downtime and the Ve refers to uptime.
