Until the latter half of the 20th century, it was believed that the human brain became fully-formed at childhood and that the possibility for expansion in one’s own cognitive potential remained static for the rest of one’s life. In the mid-1960s, studies by RB Livingston showed that many aspects for the brain remained highly-adaptable into adulthood.
Athene, the world’s self-proclaimed “most famous record-breaking professional gamer” – but don’t let that put you off. There are some very interesting ideas to contemplate, here. I have seen a friend completely restored from illness to full health, with the help of experts in the field of neuroplasticity.
Here is a summary of the more salient points made in this video:
“One’s belief system determines the extent to which one’s brain is capable of reorganizing itself to adapt to certain ideas. This is the reason why placebos can be so effective. It is also the reason why neuroscience allows us to hack the brain, to unlock traits that may otherwise seem out of reach.
“The current scientific working definition of consciousness describes it as an ever-changing unit with no center, brought about by all the active neural circuits, at that point in time.
“Current theories on memory reconsolidation in neuroscience indicate that we are capable of overwriting even the oldest memories and capable of rewiring even the deepest beliefs.
“Culture and science have elevated much of our current society to a quality of life where we are all in an optimal position to more easily evolve and develop as individuals. As if it were a password for the unimaginably powerful supercomputer that is the human brain, it is only in recent decades that we obtained the data that pinpoints how we unlock our own vastly untapped potential.
“If a computer could evolve and not only become self-aware but also learn how to reprogram itself and even modify its own hardware, it would become capable of unimaginable actions and computations. For the biological computer that is the human brain, neuro-awareness is the scientific software that enables this. You can unlock abilities that are normally considered unthinkable.”
