If you clicked on this page, you will have already viewed a few of these pages. They view the mind from a new perspective. The guiding concept is that the mind does not compute - it senses patterns. These pages will not be peer reviewed in a scientific journal. The ideas are too far ahead of current research for them to be acceptable to science.
Scientists are not the peers here, but your common sense. Instead of depending on experimental data, follow the Kezwer formula of using your mind as a research lab. Do the views expressed here seem true for your mind? Did you find any aspect helpful? Do
This website suggests that your nerve cells carry gargantuan memories. Do you have an alternate view? Can you explain the precision and reach of human memory through any other phenomenon? Have the ideas been explained understandably?
Is it not true that you grasp the ideas in this sentence in the few milliseconds in which you read these words? If we assume that intuition enables the mind to sense patterns instantly, would it not explain so many of the things we do intuitively? Have the ideas been explained understandably?
Is it not true that your view of the world swings rapidly between anger, joy and boredom? Is it not true that each is a blinkered view? Are emotions not signals, which create “levels of consciousness” - world views along with drives with specific strategies?
RI - The Real “I”
This website suggests that you have a rational prefrontal intelligence. The Buddhists have claimed that you can see a flower as being “neither ugly, nor beautiful.” Have you experienced a time when you could see the world, unemotionally?
Did you ever think that boredom as an emotion, which manipulates your behavior? Do you recall other life situations, where a emotion controlled your behavior?
Will power has been explained as a conflict between RI and emotions. Is that an understandable concept?
For my peace of mind, I earmarked 20 minutes for meditation on the terrace. With my eyes closed, I sense my hands on the chair and feel the numbness in my feet.
I feel my breath flowing through my nose, my throat, my chest and my stomach. I can hear the chirping of birds, the phut phut of auto rickshaws, the occasional roar of a truck and the insistent hooting of horns.
When I open my eyes, I see a pale moon over two hundred thousand miles away. I see the nuclear fires, blazing for millions of years in the pale globe of the setting sun. A star millions of miles away in space.
I can see green shoots coming up on a tree, watch the dives and swoops of birds, the great circles of the hawks and flocks of birds flying home for the night.
Diffused light from the sun reflects off a parrot on the tree and enters my eye through a pinhole opening. I sense the bustling mood of the bird, even though it is smaller than a drop of water in my eyes.
All these things are seen and felt by me in a few brief minutes. In the distance, is the head of a man seeming to be no bigger than a pea. Yet, that head too sees and feels such things. Ten million people in this great city see and feel in ten million ways.
My mind wanders to a misty view of postwar London; an exciting glimpse of Disneyland. An awed view of Tiananmen Square. The looming Himalayan ranges. My mind takes me to distant galaxies.
It carries me into the heart of millions of invisible neurons, where electrical charges flash thousands of times a second powering my contemplation. I see the campaigns of Julius Caesar and Alexander. I feel the longings of Jehangir.
Already my mind has taken me to palaces, battlefields and even the stars. And yet, the 20 minutes hang heavily on me. If I lost everything, but can just see and feel, in just a few brief minutes, my mind can travel the world, or imagine the cosmos.
Life has already blessed me
with over twenty million waking minutes. I have an infinity of time
on my hands. Have I a right to expect more from life?
I really loved the self improvement plan post. Its great food for thought and the steps are actually actionable as compared to many other self help sites out there.
