here are my theories on the topic.
#1 A head injury could cause a "stroke" like effect in which the brain's connections are ruptured and for a while the "victim" may lose memory,
or mobility, or whatever, but as the brain rebuilds the pathways around the damaged area, other areas , or avenues of the brain are accessible. (i.e.
'___' causes the brain to bleed, tiny ruptures of pathways, this is why it was speculated that '___' could make you smarter. also, trepidation, a
technique in which a small hole is drilled in the skull, to relieve pressure on the brain or to drain blood from stroke victims. When a hole is
drilled in the skull, the brain is washed in blood. The only other time the brain is washed in blood is when you're born, and only then if you're
born naturally. You're supposed to feel enlightened later.
#2 Consciousness and Sub-Consciousness
I think it entirely plausible that our subconscious mind often percieves and even analyzes incomprehensible factors to give us a intuition and a gut
feeling about people, i.e. bad people, and future events. Often I think it manifests its self as anxiety and racing thoughts, or multiple thoughts at
the same time.
One method of realizing something that is in the sub conscious is to voluntarily lose sleep, and after a few days the conscious mind will be forced to
rest causing the sub conscious mind to surface and share the attention of the individual with the conscious mind. Beware, people have went crazy from
lack of sleep. Our sub conscious often stores things that our conscious mind can't handle psychologically. That is, things we know, have realized,
whatever, that we are too scared, or whatever, to face consciously.
I do believe that if an individuals mind is capable of calculating the factors to predict an outcome it must be done within the sub consciousness as
it would require multiple attention on multiple factors calculated simultaneously. Impossible for the conscious mind.
#3. Don't mess with you're brain. Don't do '___' as you're probably getting bull # manufactured by jethro clampet of the beverly hillbillies,
and even if you're getting a pure and unadulterated product, there is no way to control where the ruptures will occur. I knew a guy who stuttered
for six months after doing acid until his brain repaired its self. Don't stay up for days on end, the psychological effects are probably
irreversible and there's no way to predict or control those effects.
Just a warning to anyone who would try something silly in the hopes of enhancing their mind.
