Yes. A viññāṇa (future expectation) becomes stronger via aññamañña PS: “nāmarūpa paccayā viññāna” followed by “viññāna paccayā nāmarūpa” followed by “nāmarūpa paccayā viññāna”, …
– It is a feedback loop that makes both nāmarūpa and viññāna grow.
It is discussed in “Viññāna Paccayā Nāmarūpa”
Yes. It can work for a “mundane task” like a shopping list too.
Now, something else can come up to break that viññāṇa (future expectation).
– In the case of the shopping list for tomorrow, for example, if it turns out that you had to leave home immediately to go to a different city, that viññāṇa can “break” and you may not recall the shopping list anymore. Your mind then “knows” that there is no more need for that particualr shopping list.
