Cleansing and separating: From modern agriculture and genocide to post-separation era. The impact of grounded procedures can vary as a function of perceived thought validity, meaning, and timing. Psychology of cleansing through the prism of intersecting object histories. Separation/connection procedures: From cleansing behavior to numerical cognition. Leveraging individual differences to understand grounded procedures. Developmental antecedents of cleansing effects: Evidence against domain-generality. Grounded separation: can the sensorimotor be grounded in the symbolic? Grounded procedures of separation in clinical psychology: what's to be expected? The role of mortality concerns in separation and connection effects: comment on Lee and Schwarz. Going beyond elementary mechanisms: the strategic interplay between grounded procedures. Specifying separation: avoidance, abstraction, openness to new experiences. Culture, ecology, and grounded procedures. Bio-culturally grounded: why separation and connection may not be the same around the world. From washing hands to washing consciences and polishing reputations. Cultural mindsets shape what grounded procedures mean: Cleansing can separate or connect and separating can feel good or not so good. It's a matter of (executive) load: Separation as a load-dependent resetting procedure. The lack of robust evidence for cleansing effects. The role of meta-analysis and preregistration in assessing the evidence for cleansing effects. Grounding together: Shared reality and cleansing practices. Body ownership as a proxy for individual and social separation and connection. Cleansing and separation procedures reflect resource concerns. Proper understanding of grounded procedures of separation needs a dual inheritance approach. A not-so proximate account of cleansing behavior. Considerations of the proximate mechanisms and ultimate functions of disgust will improve our understanding of cleansing effects. Incomplete grounding: the theory of symbolic separation is contradicted by pervasive stability in attitudes and behavior. Grounded procedures of connection are not created equal. The role of goal-generalization processes in the effects of grounded procedures. Grounded procedures in mind and society. Willpower through cultural tools: An example from alcoholics anonymous. Willpower needs tactical skill. It's not a bug, it's boredom: Effortful willpower balances exploitation and exploration. Increasing resolution in the mechanisms of resolve. When will's wont wants wanting. The complex nature of willpower and conceptual mapping of its normative significance in research on stress, addiction, and dementia. Beyond willpower. Weighting on waiting: Willpower and attribute weighting models of decision making. Aspiration fuels willpower: Evidence from the addiction literature. Willpower without risk? More dynamical and more symbiotic: Cortico-striatal models of resolve, suppression, and routine habit. Willpower is overrated. Is "willpower" a scientific concept? Suppressing temptation contra resolution in the face of adversity. Willpower is a form of, but not synonymous with, self-control. Suppression, resolve, and habit in everyday financial behaviour. Pleas for patience from the cumulative future self. Resolve is always effortful. Self-control from a multiple goal perspective of mixed reward options. Stress and imagining future selves: resolve in the hot/cool framework. Present-state dependency in valuation of the future. Self-control (or willpower) seeks to bias the resolution of motivational conflicts toward an individual's long-term interests. Is resolve mainly about resisting hyperbolic discounting?
