Untapped Magic In Your Brain


Recommended Posts



There are a lot of interesting metaphysical questions.

One is the old one about the tree falling in the forest.

If it does, and nobody is there, does it make a sound?

The actual answer, from science, is no, it does not.

How can this be?

Sound, and everything else we "perceive" are really internally generated.

In order for "sound" to exist, there has to be a measuring device.

If a tree falls, it will make pressure waves vibrate through the air.

Those happen whether somebody there or not.

But in order for this pressure waves to be turned into sound, there MUST be some kind of listening device.

And that listening device MUST have some kind of energy-transformation system.

Our eardrums vibrate, and that in turns makes the little hairs in our cochlea vibrate, which in turns creates the IDEA of "sound" inside our brain.

Similarly, a microphone has a vibrating element, but then those vibrations must be transformed to electrical signals.

The same thing goes for all the images we see.

They are essentially metaphors our brains come up with.

The stuff we see is just as dependent on our eyes and visual cortex as it is on the stuff outside.

And plenty of studies have shown that up to 50% of the stuff we "see" is really being generated ONLY internally.

Kind of like the cache on your web browser.

For the same reason your web browser doesn't download the same pictures from the same sites over and over again, our eyes and brain don't want to re-create the same images over and over again.

To make matters even MORE confusing, the stuff we do CONSCIOUSLY sense is only about 0.1% of the stuff that is actually happening.

But wait! There's even MORE confusion!

Not only do we only metaphorical construct internal ideas based on a small fraction of what's really going on, but we give this stuff MEANING.

And the meaning we give has a HUGE impact on the quality of our lives.

But since the meaning is based on an assumption about a poorly constructed metaphor of what happened a long time ago, we can re-write them.

This isn't magic, it does take time.

Kind of building an athletic body takes time.

But it's well worth it.

And if you ARE willing to put in the time and effort, you'll learn those internally generated ideas about what's going on "out there" can mean ANYTHING you want.

Anything you SENSE in the world outside, can create any internal feeling you want.

Excitement, positive expectation, relaxed confidence, etc.
