Levels of Consciousness

Effective mind control can carry you to the highest levels of consciousness. The secret is to become familiar with those levels by developing your skills in sensing them. Lower emotional levels include fear, shame, guilt, apathy, despair, greed, anger and pride.

Remember how you immediately recognize and interact with your friends? Familiarity with these emotional responses leads you to a similar state. They become as familiar to you as your friends. When you become swiftly aware of these pitfalls, you will reach your highest PFR levels. That state grants you reason, neutrality, acceptance and peace.

The PFR level will continue and open your mind to love and joy. Evolutionary history, the logic of ascending control systems and age old Buddhist experiences point jointly to the concrete existence of these states of mind.

  • A level of consciousness is a state, where an individual emotion permeates all awareness.
  • When PFR, the prefrontal regions, are in control, a common sense view dominates consciousness.
  • Evolution created reptilian, mammalian and PFR level control systems in the brain.
  • People lack an awareness that shifts in moods are caused by shifts in levels.
  • Libet's experiments show that awareness follows actions by the control systems.
  • Nerve cells hold memory codes measured in CUBIC MILES of 500 page books.
  • Each emotion has limited access to the knowledge of the mind.
  • PFR has access to global knowledge. The PFR level has been reached by Buddhists.
  • The focus of PFR on lower levels inhibits them. This was discovered by Buddhists.

Can An Algorithm Be Controlling The Mind?
I am not a physician, but an engineer. Way back in 1989, I catalogued how the ELIMINATION approach of an AI Expert System could reveal a way by which the nervous system could store and retrieve astronomically large memories.  That insight is central to the six unique new premises presented in this website. 

These new premises could explain an enigma.  A physician is aware of thousands of diseases and their related symptoms.  How does he note a symptom and focus on a single disease in less than half a second?  How could he identify Disease X out of 8000 diseases with just a glance?  

First, the total born and learned knowledge available to the doctor could not exist anywhere other than as the stored/retrieved data within the 100 billion neurons in his brain.  The perceptions, sensations, feelings and physical activities of the doctor could only be enabled by the electrical impulses flowing through the axons of those neurons.  The data enabling that process could be stored as digital combinations.

Second, combinatorial decisions of neurons cannot be made by any entity other than the axon hillock, which decides the axonal output of each neuron.  The hillock receives hundreds of inputs from other neurons.  Each hillock makes the pivotal neuronal decision about received inputs within 5 milliseconds.  A
xon hillocks could be storing digital combinations.  It could be adding each new incoming digital combination to its memory store.  The hillock could fire impulses, if it matched a stored combination. If not, it could inhibit further impulses.  Using stored digital data to make decisions about incoming messages could make the axon hillocks intelligent.

Third, combinations are reported to enable a powerful coding mode for axon hillocks.  Olfactory combinatorial data is known (Nobel Prize 2004) to store memories for millions of smells.  Each one of 100 billion axon hillocks have around a 1000 links  to other neurons.  The hillocks can mathematically store more combinations than there are stars in the sky. Each new digital combination could be adding a new relationship link.  In this infinite store, specific axon hillocks could be storing all the symptom = disease (S=D) links known to the doctor as digital combinations.

Fourth, instant communication is possible in the nervous system.  Within five steps, information in one hillock can reach all other relevant neurons.  Just 20 Ms for global awareness.  Within the instant the doctor observes a symptom, 
feedback and feed forward links could inform every S=D link of the presence of the symptom. Only the S=D link of Disease X could be recalling the combination and recognizing the symptom.

Fifth, on not recognizing the symptom, all other S=D hillocks could be instantly inhibiting their impulses. The S=D links of Disease X could be continuing to fire. Those firing S=D link would be recalling past complaints, treatments and signs of Disease X, confirming the diagnosis.  This could be enabling axon hillocks to identify Disease X out of 8000 in milliseconds.

Worldwide interest in this website is acknowledging its rationale. Not metaphysical theories, but processing of digital memories in axon hillocks could be explaining innumerable mysteries of the mind.  Over three decades, this website has been assembling more and more evidence of the manipulation of emotional and physical behaviors by narrowly focused digital pattern recognition.  It has also been receiving over 2 million page views from over 150 countries.

Why Does The Mind Shift Levels?
Your mental states exist at many levels. A person lives, but remains in coma below the lowest level of consciousness. As you rise from barely aware states, at the middle animal levels, your world view may shift suddenly to despair, or shame. At the highest PFR level, you will be calm. Your moods change with each level.

Why are there such drastic changes in your views between the different levels of consciousness? Because, your triune brain contains competing feeling and emotional controls, including reptilian and mammalian subsystems, which evolved over millions of years. Each control entity envelops you into the views of its level of consciousness. An intuitive decision making process shifts controls instantly between the conflicting views of varied levels of consciousness. You remain helpless, while your world view swings erratically between joy and despair. 

How Did The Levels Evolve?
Elementary pangs, like hunger, or anger provided controls for the brains of reptiles, snakes and birds. Advanced social feelings like shame and guilt added more controls to the mammalian brains of dogs and cats. These operate at lower levels of consciousness. The final addition was the PFR, the rational subsystem, the highest level intelligence, in the recently expanded prefrontal cortex. When you don't know the existence of these levels, you will be unwittingly dominated by unpredictable moods. When you become familiar with the symptoms of different levels of consciousness, PFR will take control and free you from such turmoil. 

What Is The PFR View Of The World?
While the lower operating levels whip you through a slew of painful emotions, PFR  manages the system with a detached unemotional view. The Buddhists have seen the view of the highest levels of consciousness. “You will not see something is good or bad, whether it is a beautiful picture or a very ugly picture, a sweet sound or an ugly sound. When you act like this, your mind will stay calm.”

What Is The Speed Of The System?
Your mind chooses your options with lightning rapidity. It remembers millions of evolutionary experiences and can recall anything you have seen, or heard. Intuition enables instant processing. In the blink of an eye, it receives a sensory perception, recognizes it, interprets it and then responds with motor activity. It sees a word on this page, recognizes it as a unique entity, gathers its meaning and then moves on to the next word, within the time it takes spilled coffee to hit the saucer. 

What Is The Limitation On PFR?
Your system decides your level. The famous experiments of Benjamin Libet showed that the emotion which controls a particular level of consciousness acts before you know it. Libet studied subjects who voluntarily pressed a button, while noting the position of a dot on a computer screen, which shifted its position every 43 milliseconds. Each time, he had also timed the beginning of motor neuron activity in the brains of his subjects. The noted moment of depressing the button was the moment of conscious awareness.

Libet discovered that awareness occurred 350 milliseconds AFTER the beginning of motor activity. Each level of consciousness takes charge and then informs you. If you are angry, you will act in anger. If you are calm, you actions will be just right. So, to control your mind, you have to put PFR in charge before you act!

How Much Knowledge Does The System Store?
Shifting control systems manage your brain. Billions of nerve cells within those circuits have amassed an ancient wisdom, on a galactic scale. To get an idea, in a grown human body, with the DNA in each cell containing a sequence of over 3 billion chemical nucleotide bases, the total of those codes in the body would FILL THE GRAND CANYON FIFTY TIMES OVER WITH 500 PAGE BOOKS! Your changing levels of consciousness are also supported by massive inherited and acquired knowledge.

Are Emotions Impartial?
Early in history, the evaluation of smells enabled the olfactory bulb to detect safety, danger, or opportunity and make survival choices. Just like the olfactory bulb, several organs in the limbic system initiate different levels of consciousness, adding more choices. Those organs trigger anger, fear or guilt. Your nervous system permits only a single control system to take charge. Nature also limits the information available to lower levels of consciousness. Anger, fear, or guilt will focus the organism on a specific strategy, inhibiting awareness of other viewpoints. Consequences worry you less, when you are angry. Each emotion limits knowledge and envelops the system in its innate level of consciousness. Dominated by the current perception, you are enveloped in anger, gloom, or joy.

How Old Is The Wisdom of PFR?
Peace of mind requires your ability to induce the PFR level of consciousness. Your prefrontal regions contain a powerful analytical intelligence. Those regions have access to all your sensory perceptions, recognition messages and emotional patterns, which enable your mind to make your subtle decisions - to support democracy, or to invest in a home. Uninhibited by emotions, at the highest level of consciousness, PFR has the wisdom of the ages and the ability to make sense of a complex modern world. 

What Is Buddhist History?
The Buddhists have advocated an effective mind control method to reach the highest levels of consciousness. Observe the shifting streams of thought within you. Matthieu Ricard, the eminent Buddhist Monk said: "One may wonder what people do in retreats, sitting for eight hours a day. They familiarize themselves with a new way of dealing with the arising of thoughts. When you start getting used to recognizing thoughts as they arise, it is like rapidly spotting someone you know in a crowd. When a powerful thought or anger arises, you recognize it. That helps you to avoid being overwhelmed by this thought." The Buddhists know that self knowledge will induce your highest level of consciousness to take charge.

How Can You Reach The PFR Level?
These Mind Control Tips offer you a practical path to reach your PFR level of consciousness. With its immense wisdom, PFR can give you many an answer. It is the seat of your conscience. It reflects your truest wishes. It requires effort to retain your highest level of consciousness, with PFR in ongoing control. That requires self awarenes, which identifies and inhibits the competing emotions, which disturb you. When PFR clearly identifies an emotion, it becomes stilled. With persisting practice, PFR will take over ongoing control and you will become calm. At the highest levels of consciousness, you will view the ups and downs of life without emotions, “like watching a bird in the sky.” It is worth the effort. Begin today!
