@ way too early, I just read your reply and I think I as well have been up all but 10 mins. As I was reading your reply, I'm thinking "man, I
need to wake up before I attempt my reply". So this too will be an early morning response in return.
That said, your reply brought up another thread I recently replied to, that for all intents and purposes gave me the idea for this thread and is what
I think I was ultimately trying to convey, but your reply above gives me a way to explain it now so thank you for that for what it is worth. (I will
provide the link to my initial reply to that thread but by all means read as much of the OP and other replies as you wish):
Brain vs. Mind: Are they indeed two separate entities? - My reply (page
Welcome back! I most definitely believe they are currently and entirely two separate entities. Which begs many questions. Are we just in an early
state of evolution and until we're able to make the two (conscious and sub-conscious) work as one entity will we remain unable to indeed equal or
unify their apparent separate qualities or will we eventually evolve to make them one?
You've heard the phrase we only use 10%, 20%, whatever it is (I've also heard that even that is bullocks and we use all of it), of our brain's
capacity and/or ability right? This I think ties into the Savant arena that you mentioned. Wherein, I believe that normal
subjective term) people whose synapses are firing accordingly are not able to achieve savant-ism
if you will.
Savant's I feel are otherwise lacking an otherwise normal functionality in the brain so to compensate the brain activates (so to speak) otherwise
dormant sections that a normal
person's brain would otherwise have no need to as it is all firing according to the current level of
There are tons of subjects and news articles regarding people with "other than worldly" or "miraculous" brain abilities depending on one's
belief. To name a few, Telekinesis, Self-healing, Astral Projection, Psychic ability, Memorization, you get the picture. A good example of proof of
that ability is blind people that have better than average hearing, because the brain compensates and the remaining available senses are amplified.
So this leads me to believe, we all have it up there, however, our current level of evolution does not thwart us the ability to control it or have
access to it at all. It's locked up at this venture, and probably for good reason because we aren't ready, or that's just not how life
in that an advanced species has to effectively learn and grow into what is the ultimate being. We are infants in that regard.
I do however think this is the overall goal in regards to what life
is truly about. It is all about energy, more so and seemingly, cyclical
energy which is beginning to make a lot of sense in my view. I feel that if we had full control of the energy that we are both conscious and sub, we
would not require a body to house it, or a brain to process it. One day, we may be the life givers and perhaps that is how the Universe is evolving
and this is just one phase of the slow but sure goal to filling the Universe with life and energy.
To me, it is just as plausible as any other theory on the market
