A Revolutionary Idea

About This Website

My website posits that the mind works by detecting patterns through its own innate wisdom. However, this idea conflicts with the scientific view that the axon hillocks, or nerve cells, simply add up their inputs. It's like asking a calculator to feel empathy. Imagine instead that our nerve cells are able to sense patterns, like how receptors in our nose can identify the scent of a flower. This concept can give us deeper insight into how our mind functions, from understanding the beauty of a sunset to feeling sorrow for a loved one's loss.

Science tends to focus on the complexity of the mind, but this complexity doesn't explain how we can instantly recall a single memory or differentiate between a smile and a grin. Unfortunately, mainstream science is unlikely to accept the simple idea that the mind can sense patterns because it's too broad and requires too many explanations. It's akin to the idea that the earth is round, which was met with skepticism 2300 years ago before gravity was understood.

Additionally, scientists are often hesitant to embrace new and broad ideas because they have spent years conducting research and have seen many failed experiments. They prefer to stick to tried and true methods. Additionally, many scientists believe that math is the key to understanding the mind, but recognizing patterns is just as important, if not more so. Damage to a small part of the brain can prevent us from recognizing objects by touch, and certain parts of the brain are dedicated to recognizing specific things like smells or hand movements. Recognition also plays a crucial role in human memory, as seen in DNA coding.

In conclusion, recognizing patterns is a crucial aspect of how the mind works and should be given more consideration in scientific research. It may not be as popular as the current theories, but it is a valuable perspective that can lead to new and exciting discoveries.
