The brain is really the most complex thing in the universe, and I don't think we'll ever be able to figure it out. We were born with the most powerful computer in our head. However, programs must be installed in it. Some of them are already installed, but others need to be "downloaded". We upload programs for the rest of our lives. And all this time we are changing, adjusting.
One has to work with one's head - only this can save the brain. The more we use it, the longer we will store it. Shortly before flying to the better scientific world, Natalia Bekhterova wrote in her work: "Smart people live long"
The brain makes a decision 30 seconds before a person realizes the decision itself. 30 seconds is a long time for brain activity. Therefore, who ultimately makes the decision: the brain or the human?
To say "my brain" is very presumptuous, because it is not yet clear who is who. However, if our brain makes decisions that we then execute, then an important question arises, namely the question of free will.
In the end, it turns out that we are strictly programmed mechanisms that have a master, and that master is the brain. In the study 'The Best Trick of the Mind: How We Consciously Experience the Will' by Daniel Wegner, it was found that our brain makes its own decisions, then gives a signal, informing us that we have made the appropriate decision.
We have to take the brain very seriously - it often lies and deceives us. An example of this is: the hallucinations - it is impossible to dissuade the person who sees them that they do not exist. They are as real to him as the cup on the table is to me. This person's brain deceives him by giving him sensory information that the hallucination is real. Therefore, do we have reason to believe that what is happening around us is real and not some kind of hallucination of ours?
In order not to be torn from within, you need to talk. There are friends, therapists, confessors for that. People who do not pour out their souls, but hide everything in themselves, are at serious psychological or psychiatric risk, but also at somatic risk. And experts will agree - it all starts with a stomach ulcer, and the body is one - and the body and psyche.
It is very useful to learn to see the world through the eyes of the people around us. The ability to build the model of the "other" provides us with a behavioral advantage.
A good brain is constantly learning. Set a goal to perform difficult mental tasks on a regular basis. This is a surefire way to stay conscious longer - literally. People live with the wrong attitude, they believe, for example, that the cook is less important than the conductor. But this is not the case, because a genius chef can surpass all conductors. Comparing a chef and a conductor is like comparing sour and square - the question itself is wrong. Everyone is good in their place. We pay a huge price for the existence of geniuses. Mental and nervous disorders are the number one disease in the world, moreover, they are already beginning to outnumber cardiovascular and oncological diseases… The brain is far from just a neural network. The brain is a network of networks, a network of networks of networks. There are 5.5 petabytes of information in the human brain - that's approximately three million hours of watching videos. 300 years of continuous viewing!
We don't forget anything, just a lot of the information goes in the "Other" folder.
One day, the opportunity to receive a quality education may become an elite privilege that will only be available to the "initiated." In his novel 'The Name of the Rose,' Umberto Eco suggests that only people who are ready and who are able to absorb complex knowledge be allowed into the library. One day there will be a division between those who will be able to read complex literature and those who will be able to read advertisements. And this division will expand more and more.
Why not work with brains on the brain 😊
Hope these few hints to be of help to everyone to make a better use of their brains 😊
In search of brainfood-full future.
