The Attic of your mind.
To think about some things that not unbroken, limit our mind the little bit objects in this world. We can talk about of steel, or even carbon fiber, but here in those words I want to talk, or rather, I want to write about our mind, our brain. What are the limits of our mind? Can we study hard to point of broken our brain?
I want to explain the study that easy and simplifies our understanding and wants back to many years ago where supposedly existed the man called Solomon, specifically in his words.
"Do not pay attention to every word people say,
or you may hear your servant cursing you—
for you know in your heart
that many times you yourself have cursed others.
All this I tested by wisdom and I said,
“I am determined to be wise”—
but this was beyond me.
Whatever exists is far off and most profound—
who can discover it?
So I turned my mind to understand,
to investigate and to search out wisdom and the scheme of things
and to understand the stupidity of wickedness
and the madness of folly¹".
This topic is important because in this days our mind is full of unnecessary information and so we can do in the first moment try to empty our minds of useless and to focus on our objective. It is the first time that I study this topic and I hope to can helping everybody whit few ideas about our brain.
I hope that we can to build a knowledge bridge that helps us direct our ability to learn more and more, with clarity objective and focus.
Basically, I can say that my study to focus the get-together works on helping better performance and determinate how we can increase all our learning potential. "From song lyrics to former addresses, our brains hold a seemingly endless supply of information. How are we able to learn, store, and recall information with such ease? Brain cells undergo chemical and structural changes during learning. By changing the number, or strength, of connections between brain cells, information is written into memory¹".
My personal experience about this situation is the learning of new language, where I have experienced this study and applied some concepts like; meditation, concentration, clear purpose, and practice that is the base of work.
One important point is the emotional control, necessary for nourish your mind with relevant information for our progress. Some cases cannot be concise and with many details, but will help us to get an overview of how to be observers better, for it was necessary to study and read about, forming a set of relevant information which gives us good instructions.
My principal work is to write with simple words of that specialists make with hard words synthesizing all in a practical way including topics for facilitating our understanding.
I identified my interest in the brain and your analysis when started my studies with a new language and with I could be improved this method. This is a regular event common when some people to want to better about your skills and behavior, however, this compartmental phenomenon is focused on behavioral sciences in each one person and every single case, taking into account the assumption of his desire to learn.
All this ability has, basically in my point of view four stages , desire, choice, work, and conclusion, therefore we can start our study about the brain with our external receivers. It five senses, smell, taste, sight, touch, and hearing, they taking charge of the information to our brain that encodes the information in. My lack of knowledge about certain terms did a little difficult my job but was soon overcome by my desire for knowledge.
One of the most important factors was my discovery of how to organize it information inside the mind, how wrote Maria Konnikova in Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes; our mind operate on a so-called two system basis, fast and slow.
The fast side is more intuitive, reactionary, vigilant, and fight or flight, and our slow side is more deliberative, thorough, logical, and cognitively.
A great concept supported by Maria Konnikova it is Brain Attic, a place where we keep adverse information, that is well-organized can in a great and special sixth sense, "the Deduction".
"Like all other arts, the Science of Deduction Analysis is one with can only be acquired by long and patient study nor is life long enough to allow any mortal to attain the highest possible perfection in it". However, we have to keep in mind that, of course, this learning and final piece of the puzzle, requires practice, much practice.
Maria's considered that a man's brain originally is like a little empty attic, and we have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. We can consider also that it is based originally Sherlock Holmes's character of books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and in one specific book Holmes say "a person's brain attic really is an incredibly concrete, physical space.
Thinking that way Maria divided into two parts it attic, "structure and contents", like this a physical attic, the structure of the brain attic isn't altogether fixed, we can expand albeit not indefinitely or it can contract, depending on how we use it, in other words, our memory and processing ca become more or less effective.
The overviews this discussion about it, we can extract two measurable sentences: number one, "do not pay attention to every word people say that is", not only what we hear but what our brain absorbs, and number two this process requires a lot of practice, in short, all we feel through our senses must be filtered and only saved the essential for our purpose, that is to clarify our goals.
Thus if we want to improve our learning and be more productive we have to focus on the most relevant area and let the distractions, and to the most advantage of our brain.
Our brain attic may be full of unnecessary information, and wrapped distractions thus it behooves us to discipline our concentration focusing on clear objectives not forgetting that the practice is our greatest means of improvement.
