The Message

However, reflection in this case, is more about the neurological aspects that make sure something is stored so that you have easy access to it regardless of the time that has elapsed or is stored so that a few seconds already do not remember us of anything. Firstly, let us remember that what interests him to the brain or, in other words, the function of the brain is to keep us alive. Nothing more. Therefore, the brain permanently makes a monitoring on all the stimuli received from the outside and filtered that parts of this all captures at all times, you must keep in foreground and which parts are irrelevant and can therefore be stored in areas of difficult access. I.e., that the brain constantly receives information about the outside world (some studies say that receives between 3,000 and 200,000 bits of information), from people who like people interact with us, words that say, gestures that make, the things that do not say things that don’t make the similarities to past facts, evaluates the message, the message target, it analyzes the environment of the conversation, distance of the person, the voice, volume, tone, the importance of the message, the place in which we are, temperature, wind, time, the clothes we carry on, the sensation of shirt, pants, shoes, people who are around him, noise levelthe environment in which we are, the size, color, and thousands more data, including those coming from our body. Of course, if someone is aware of all the impulses of information received every second, it would become crazy, by which the brain chooses between three and five pulses and them makes me aware.

Why is that we hardly know a tiny fraction of the real world and what little we know, relate it, associate, or mix with the preconceived ideas that we have above all. Therefore, from the little we know, we still distorting it. Now the question is, what determines it is important and that it isn’t to keep the brain it in foreground or? isn’t it? OUR intention, mainly. I’m going to put an example, suppose that you or your wife, depending on, are pregnant. From that moment, you start to see thousands of pregnant women, why? Because it now is important for you, before no.

Another example: suppose that you want to buy a vehicle from any trademark and you like, but you afraid that there are many spare parts or that then not you can resell it well. But, as you want tests to convince you, active your reticular system and now you see what you want to see: hundreds of cars of the brand that you wish to purchase. Do you see how it works? Your intention is decisive for the functioning of the brain. This reticular system and its opposite the escotomizacion, which is not to see what they don’t want to see, has far-reaching implications. For now, suffice it to an example: the girl who grew up listening to all men are equal. Philander, drunks and exploited, his brain will specialise in search for womanizing, drunken and exploited men and escotomizara men who are not mujerigos, drunks and exploited. Another day I’ll delve on this subject and its implications which are many. Namaste.
