It turns out your conscious mind — the part you think of as you — is really the smallest part of what’s happening in your brain, and usually the last one in line to find out any information.
Another lovely quote from David Eagleman. Made me think of the “unknown” group. A couple of weeks ago I participated in a hypnosis workshop. The instructor explained to the class the layers of Alpha, Beta, Theta, Delta and Gamma brain waves. We are only conscious in Beta (thinking state) and subtly conscious in Alpha (deep relaxation state), all other waves exist in the subconscious. How cool is that?
The three-pound organ in your skull — with its pink consistency of Jell-o — is an alien kind of computational material. It is composed of miniaturized, self-configuring parts, and it vastly outstrips anything we’ve dreamt of building. So if you ever feel lazy or dull, take heart: you’re the busiest, brightest thing on the planet.
An uplifting quote from author and neuroscientist David Eagleman. The focus of his work is primarily perception and synesthesia. A great mind to look into for the “Perception” group. Kerri, I recommend that you check him out he co-wrote a book called “Wednesday Is Indigo Blue: Discovering the Brain of Synesthesia”.
