Let’s begin by bringing everyone up to speed with the currently accepted picture of reality and how modern science has rediscovered ancient wisdom.
Discovery number one: The old understanding that everything in the universe is made of either energy or matter is wrong. In fact, our new ability to peer into the life’s of atoms have demonstrated clearly that the protons and neutrons that we thought were solid are not. They are themselves made up of energy particles that seem to pop in and out of existence within our 4 dimensional reality. Where they go, is still a mystery but the fact that they are not always here has been repeatedly proven.
The age of Attention has begun: The information age has grown up and created a completely new human condition. This has been recently recognized and dubbed The Attention Age. Now that a person has instant access to all the information he could ever ask for values have shifted away from the information itself and to the attention span of the individual.
Those who fail to grasp this drastic change, are doomed to a treadmill ride to Nowheresville.
This Point of Attention, is discribed as a sentient human beings instant by instant reality. It is made up of three equal sources of information:
- Stimulation from the corporal bodies biological sensors as they monitor the local four deminsional universe.
- Memories of past experiences brought up by this stimulation or the brain may be in a state of constant restimulation of habitual behaviors and thoughts.
- Predictions of potential outcomes as the analytical mind attempts to creat a rational chain of experiences.
Discovery number two: Using exiting new scanners it is possible to examine in the 4 deminsions the activity of the human brain. It has been found that the brain is a very plastic organ. It is in a state of continual change. This change follows the Point of attention like a needle carving out a wax record. MANY of an individuals behaviors are simply well worn physical neuro networks in the brain, that are easily stimulated because of the numberous connections to other sensations and experiences held in the brain. Until now it was not recognized that these hardwired behaviors can be physically rewired with proper education and practice.
Modern science now has a clear picture of what happens in your brain as you deal with life. The physical brain is much more plyable than we ever imagined. This discovery explains how and why some of us are successful, while others of us are sick.
