Your conscious mind…

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?

Interesting article on dreams, since we discussed it last class. Some people believe our subconscious minds can solve our more conscious problems.
