CONSCIOUS US: THE BUILDING BLOCKS BEHIND WHY WE HAVE ONE

“Into the brain mechanics.”


what is it 

Having a conscious is something that is baffling on so many levels. And those of you who are unfamiliar with what is a conscious. A conscious is the ability to have the understanding of the world around you, to be awake. Now, in today’s society, people throw that word around so freely its pitiful. But how many people are truly awake. But that was a question for last month’s topic of the mind. This is the science behind why we have a conscious and how it works. So how does it work and why do we have one?

the mechanics of the mind

The small illustration below shows the mechanics of how man uses the conscious in our initial stage of life on this planet. We have a problem we have to solve, but in order to solve that problem we must be able to seek out a way to fix the problem. So in the beginning of time man had rain coming down. In order to keep from getting wet, man sought refuge in places that didn’t have rain entering. This was the place of man’s immediate home for living. And just like that, we started our path to what would be today. So the explanation is quite straight forward for how it works. Problem/Obstacle → theories to deal with problem → find a solution to the problem → problem solved → continue to enhance understanding for future problems.

why we have one

Why do we have one? We have one because it is the reason that has kept us alive for so long. Without being able to understand the sudden changes, certain obstacles placed before us, we would have died off. And from this we developed a communication link to keeping others from falling victim. And from there we started to develop language, and from there on we can build off of more to create working civilizations. The conscious also aids us in helping others because we could see ourselves in that same position. So we have one to continue to exist. The moment we become less aware, we become slaves to our own vulnerability.

PARENTAL MENTAL: HOW YOUR CHILD’S MIND IS SHAPED BY YOU AS THE PARENT/S

adult, adventure, baby

“You give them confidence or take it away.”


IT’S YOUR JOB

So many young people are entering the world afraid of their chances at success. But whose job is it to prepare them for the world? I’ll tell you whose job it is, it’s the parents. Your job as a parent/s is to make sure your child/children have the ability to say to themselves, “Life is tough, but I can do this, I can make it.” Yet there are so many who can’t cope because mom and dad didn’t properly show them the way. Now the kid is an adult thinking it’s society’s job to raise them.

HOW DO YOU GIVE IT

Parents are to give their children the confidence that they have had in order to make it in the world. But that’s assuming the mind of the parent/s are in the right place. How can a parent shape the mind of the child if theirs is so ruined. So that means now you have ruined parents raising children that will enter our society, who then in turn affect all of our lives. And you give them the confidence by making them realize that failures will come, but ultimately there is light at the end of the tunnel. And that they also are great in every shape and form, yet they must prove this by exemplifying it in the world.

HOW “WE” SUFFER

Notice I said how we suffer with the we in quotations. And the we is referring to the masses of people in the dominant society. When parents don’t give their children the proper guidance and encouragement, everyone else suffers who has to come across them. And that doesn’t just mean parents who were absentee, I’m also referring to parents who raise their kids making them think every kid should be handed something for nothing. Teaching them that their 50% is someone else’s 100%. Then they step into the world and realize that their 50 is 50, and my 100 is 100. And that my 100 will always beat your child’s 50.

IN MY OWN LIFE

Growing up for my sisters and I at least, you just knew their was nothing that was going to be given to you. You had to put forth effort in everything you did in life. And you were also in the know that you were going to stink at a lot more than you were going to be good at, so find what you’re good at and work to achieve greatness. Because inevitably the world could care less about your tears when you have nothing to show. It will be you who people judge, not how you grew up or any downfall you may have encountered in life.

TOO MUCH SELF AWARENESS: ARE WE BECOMING TOO IN THE KNOW

anatomy, biology, eye

“We were made to learn; but this much, really?”


INTRODUCTORY 

The more we become aware of who we are, are we starting to see humanity become more and more depressed? Are we hitting this point where we are so in the know that it’s bringing people down? Because if you are a science buff, then you have reason to believe that people are not going anywhere special after death. And if that is to be held as factual over time, then how will that fair with man knowing that this is it? Or, are we going to see the complete opposite? People may become more empathetic once we fill that this is it for us on Earth.

EVIDENCE

Graphical chart

The chart below shows the science of the way in which humanity has evolved in the mind over time.

The chart was made using the information found on the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

The information above was found from the → Smithsonian website regarding how the brain has evolved over time. The independent dots represent the different stages of human evolution, while the dots attached to lines shows what happened between that time years ago.

  • At the highest point we are at 4 – 6 million years ago when scientist stated that brain size increased giving us the ability to walk upright and make simple tools.
  • The second point shows where the brain and the body increases with respect to each other about 2 million to 800,000 years ago. At a time where we also ventured throughout the globe and came in contact with many different ways of life and survival.
  • Then the third point is represented by the lowest point; and this is where we experienced the climate change and how we as humans adapted to our surroundings as well as our interactions with each other. A time where life was unpredictable and the brain had to adjust; 200,000 to 800,000 years ago.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

All of this information we have and will have in the future means that once we continue to experience shifts and changes in climate and our relationships with each other grows, so will our brains. And once you get in the know it’s impossible to go backward. But will it make people more depressed and more vulnerable? So far, we have lasted this long on Earth and we have learned and continue to learn every step of the way. So being too in the know is only scary to generations who have lived a long time on Earth and watch drastic change from when they were young. We aren’t knowing too much too soon, you are just getting old and can’t handle it, and you’re rejecting new information that you believed for so long to be false.

SOCIALLY AWKWARD SUCCESS: WHY WE VIEW THE INTROVERT AS THE WEIRDO

Related image

“I’m not quiet, I’m just in my head a lot.”


People have always told me that I am an introverted person. As a child I was not, but as time progressed, I became more and more introverted. And it was not due to any traumatic events, it came as a result of being in my head so much. I started to conjure up so many ideas and ways in which I could become successful. Then, then more I got into my head, the more I became detached from so many people. And when I say detached, I don’t mean detached in a way where I have lost my sense of humanity. But I mean detached as it pertains to connecting to so many people in my age demographic. The way in which I started to see the world around me changed as well as my interests. I went from looking at life so much one sided, to now having a more balanced view of the world.

So, then if I am so learned and so well traversed, then why do people think I am so introverted. Well, I am introverted during conversations that are not based in substance. In social situations where people are discussing something that does not pertain to something in depth, it’s tough for me. But when having to explain something that is more in depth, I tend to be comfortable. And it’s unfortunate that you get these labels when you are not as social. But the introvert does play a role in themselves being portrayed a certain way. Because you can’t shy away from people and then ask why do they view you a certain way. Because as we all know, first impressions are very important. And I know me myself, I give off bad first impressions. So if you meet me, you have to be around me for quite a while to develop and understanding of me.

Now what’s interesting is that the introverts are so successful a lot of times. Well, how could that be? The reason being that if you are always in thought, you are generally working out problems in your head. You’re not panicking as much, and you learn to deal with more issues as they come. You also learn to embrace the changes in life because you look at life from such a realistic perspective. So when people see you, and they can’t understand why you are so quiet, little do they know you are probably working out a major issue. And it does not have to be your own personal issue. You could have the key to fixing a problem in our society that no one else has found. Then once you find out, everyone is in shock because they assume you lack knowledge because you’re so quiet. When in reality, your silence keeps you listening, and you’re able to detect problems and fix them quicker.

And in the end, the socially awkward, the misfits, the introverted, the weirdo, the unknown; might ultimately be the true success. You can’t assume that people are not in the moment because they are not talking. They might be more in the moment than you are because their senses are heightened. They hear, taste, see, and touch everything; and can state in grave detail what it is they see.

FORCED FRUSTRATION: SCENARIOS IN YOUR MIND THAT AREN’T REAL, THAT MAKE YOU MADE

black-and-white, cry, crying

“Getting mad for the sake of getting mad.”


We all get mad from time to time, but some of us have other forms of frustration and anger. And that form of anger is made up scenarios. That’s right, made up scenarios. Scenarios that we think about something and play it out in our minds long enough and it will make you upset. And before you alone, black-and-white, depressedknow it, you’re spiraling out of control over something that not only has no meaning, but you’re made over events that never took place. Where does it come from? How are we able to bring ourselves to such a dark place so rapidly? I have a few insights into why we do this, and how it manages to slip into our conscious mind.

Well, I can speak on these types of situations because I have had them. These intense moments when all you can think about is the anger. Mine Image result for angercould happen from a video involving a fight or a social issue I feel passionately about. Then I start to think about the event, and before you know it, I am part of the event. Now I’m mad about a circumstance that has never taken place in my life. And before you know it, I have wasted a good two to three hours made over, what. And that what is what; nothing. Where does that come from. Because mentally, for those out there who get made, it has to come from somewhere.

One of the theories I have is the idea of a lack of existence. When you don’t feel like you have a real life, this anger gives your life purpose. It’s the same reason why it’s so easy to offend people in society today. Because people Man Standing on Brown Grass Lawn during Daytimehave become addicted to the anger like a drug. But when you come down off that high you feel worst than the initial anger. Now, you have to put yourself back into that angry mind frame because you need that shot of pleasure. I wrote a prior post about dopamine in the brain. These pleasure pathways that trigger the reward-motivator inside of us. Which oddly as it sounds, if placed in the right direction, you could be happier.

Now, I’m not saying I’m unhappy, it just happens. Ok, what is another reason besides being unhappy. These triggers of anger in people can also result from issues in the subconscious. Things that make us angry can take Related imageplace when we already feel passionately about a certain topic. So, for example, you hear about a woman cheating on her boyfriend. Next thing
you know you say to yourself, “Is my girlfriend cheating?” Then wondering leads to you convincing yourself she is cheating. And now you’re angry about your girlfriend cheating that never happened. You might ruin your relationship from an event that never even took place. All because you made up a scenario in your mind.

In the end, this all sounds a bit psychotic, but it’s real. And a lot of the reasons we get mad too is based off of our own insecurities and lack of control. People make us angry and situations make us angry even when we didn’t experience them because we are not secure with ourselves. We have no control in our lives, so it must be because someone else who we never met put it there. It’s uncomfortable to talk about because it is a slight case of mental illness. But with a good quality of life, comes a clean mind.

LAWS OF ATTRACTION: HOW PEOPLE ENTERING YOUR LIFE SPEAKS VOLUMES TO WHO YOU ARE

Image result for laws of attraction

“You tend attract to you what lies inside of you unbeknownst to you.”


The laws of attraction are quite real and we all have experienced this in life. We attract like energy and we also open ourselves up the the positive or negative energy that is out in the universe. We experience this a number of ways: through trying to find monogamous relationships, friendships, having random conversations, and/or our daily work environments. The way we attract people into our lives says a lot in who we are as people. Because if not for our energy whether positive or negative they wouldn’t be in our lives. And what do I mean by that, this is what I mean.

When it comes to seeking a potential mate in a relationship, the energy that is you, has a lot to do with the person you wind-up with. This can take place on multiple levels. One way is through how you look at yourself when you stare in the mirror; self-esteem. If you look at yourself as undeserving, you will attract that into your life. Thinking to yourself, this is the best I can do, then you’re going to get the bare minimum or someone mundane. Another level is operating from a space of being tired of getting the same nobody. No one gets the same person over and over again. There is an aspect of that nobody that is you. They feed of your nobody energy like looking into a mirror. They see themselves in you. And the third level is the enabler who feels being there means allowing someone to be irresponsible in moments where responsibility should exist. Meaning, they can see you are a vessel for their irresponsibility, so why not jump aboard for the ride.

Now, when looking at how you attract people as it pertains to friendships, choose those going in the right direction. Or, better yet, choose those going in the same direction as you. This does not mean since you are becoming a doctor, you only need med school friends. It simply means that if you have a vision of where you want to be and the people around you don’t, you’re being irresponsible. You’re of no use to them because they are not trying to better themselves via your initiative, and you as well will start to lower yourself. Because when you’re in a foot race in life, and you are in 3rd trying to get to 1st and they are in 6th, you have to slow down to let them catch you. But 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th are running. So when you slow down you compromise yourself, so it has to always be them catching up to you, or you let them lose. And if they are bent on running their race, they’ll catch up eventually.

Well, what about the other attraction which delves into the conversations we have in life. Certain conversations we have in life say a lot about who we let into our lives. If you spend your days conversing on telephones with people about random gossip, then you can’t say you’re tired of gossipy people. If you are in a good space mentally, it will actually feel awkward having a conversation that goes into areas of petty behavior. These random petty conversations become beneath you simply because of progression. If there is no progress involved in what you are discussing it becomes difficult to talk about. Meaning, if discussing someone who was on drugs and now is clean and living sober, it feels good. But just discussing someone’s drug habit for the sake of conversation is going to attract a certain type of person/people who revel in other’s misfortunes.

Lastly, I would like to observe our daily work environments. Where you work and the space in and around your job will have an affect as well. When you’re focusing on working and gossip is all around you, then trying to accomplish a task can be tough. Because even though the conversation does not concern you, the human brain is not meant to tune out a lot of conversation. Even though we say things like I’m tuning you out. We still hear conversations, we just try to block them out. And when the conversation concerns someone we see everyday or one of the people talking in question we listen more. So in the midst of trying to ignore, you still soak it all in. Whether the conversation is good or bad, it intrigues the mind to hear something unbeknownst to yourself.

See, in the end, we introduce a lot of energy into us because that energy we invite is apart of us. Unless something is not within you already, it is hard to introduce it. You don’t have to tell anyone about yourself, what we expose ourselves to says it all. A lot of times, the action is more than the verbal. You say you want positive energy in your life, but all you keep bringing in is negative. It’s not that it’s sneaking past you, or you are getting the short end of the stick. There’s no conspiracy to harm you, you are a co-conspirator in your own assassination of character.

THE ME INSIDE OF ME: HOW TO TAP INTO YOUR SELF AWARENESS

Related image

“What are your mind mechanics?”


So many people in our world have such a hard time succeeding in what they aim to become in life. We all have heard the reasons as to why: I was born poor, I was born with a lack of adequate education in my environment, I am a minority, I am a woman, I have a different religious belief that is not what everyone else believes, or my sexual orientation. And you know what, we have and never will live in a utopia society. These are aspects of our daily lives that we have to overcome. But we also have another aspect of why we can’t succeed and that is a lack of self-awareness. And what do I mean by the lack of self-awareness?

I am referring to the skills and talents that we possess that sets us apart from each other. We’ve heard of the sayings, “Everyone is special in their own way.” Now that I am an adult I feel this is true more than ever. But how come so many people can’t tap into the inner skill they possess. This doesn’t matter your education, economic situation, ethnicity, religion, or gender. This is that inner thing that all people are endowed with in life. How does one get into the right mind-frame to attain hold of that gift? Because the human mind is very complex, yet the average human is not a complex person, but more of a simplistic person. It’s because with all the complexity that makes up the mind, so many people can’t harness it. Meaning, there are a series of, “Oh, that’s what that means.” These “ah ha” moments that create joins in the mind.

It sounds weird and sci-fi driven, but it is real. And the reason so many can’t connect, is because there is no self awareness. For example, people say, we need jobs. Then you ask them, “A job, doing what?” And they look at you and shrug their shoulders. A job is a broad ambiguous term, CEO is a job and flipping burgers is a job. What job title, what income, what employment package, what position after what time-frame? You need to be more direct instead of job and making good money. No one can define what good is, so asking me to provide you with a good paying job is a wrong way to go about attaining employment. Because I don’t know what is good for you, you do. So it is your job to say what you need a job doing what.

The reason this is so hard is because people don’t have a real discernible skill that makes them employable. Because you ask them, “What is your skill?” And they reply to you, “I don’t have one.” With no skill, what job can you get? You can’t get a job. Now some may be thinking, what about training programs? Well you can train people to do anything, but sustainability is on the basis of skill and talent, on top of the hard work. So, it is impossible to create a job among people with no skill or direction in what it is they want. Throwing money at something doesn’t help. You need to invest in people, but the people have to have something that is worth investing in that is sustainable with growth potential. Meaning, I am unemployed; someone says, “What do you do?” I reply, “I have my degree in Computer Science and I have intermediate experience with Java Script and CSS.” There is potential there. But someone who says, “I just need a good paying job.” There is no direction in what they want, because good paying job is not a real want.

All of what I have said comes from the ability to tap into the human mind that is you. In the end, if you are not able to harness how your mind works no one can help you in moving forward. It’s like dealing with a baby when trying to get people help. The baby cries and parents ask what’s wrong. The baby think you should know, but you are not that human. You can only guess what the baby needs. Only in society, you’re not dealing with a baby, it’s a fully grown adult. So you’re asked questions by adults who look at you and expect you to know their situation. Or they want you to feel their situation. Only problem is you have the issue, now what. You still need to tap into talent you or skill you. Without you understanding how your brain works to communicate what it is you need, no one will be able to assist you with anything in life. Because if you don’t know you, how will I assist you.
