The pain in CH is irrelevant, once it is put into perspective. The primary goal of the CH-process is to get to the chemical by-products of the pain process. Something in the fine layer that separates the mind and the brain has malfunctioned and the result is CH. My feeling is that the only thing strong enough to rewire the mental circuitry is not likely to care much about inflicting a little pain on the chemical-carrying host. So, a battle ensues in the body, a civil war field in which two parts of the brain fight for mineral rights.
My guess is that since the brain feels no pain it is at the root of the problem. The mind experiences the pain, not the brain. The brain is addicted to, not the pain, but the chemical by-product of the pain process. Perhaps it is a piece of the mind which has become burned-out and no longer affected by pain.
How to stop the CH-process? Intervene anywhere along the pain process path and eventually the CH-initiator will become ineffective. As there is some intelligence behind the CH-initiation process, there is the problem with adaptation. Indeed the CH-initiator seems very adaptable and patient.
