About time frames and framerates
”real time” exist only ’now’ , and that’s the only timeframe that the brain can record data from and convert into ‘conscious’ data.
That is also the only timeframe that allows us to interact with the physical world around us.
The past exists as fragmented copies of whatever the brain has recorded and stored in the long term memory about it. The future is thoughts , plans,
predictions or daydreams (etc.) that the brain produces of ; what the ‘Me’ either wants to happen , wait for to happen or plan for to happen.
I know many people (before me) has done some calculations about how much data the brain collect and turns into conscious data every second. These
kind of calculations can never be accurate , but if we compare with the ‘state of the art’ technology that is available on the marked today,
there are televisions and cameras that now support a resolution of 4K (4096 x 2160) and even more. If we assume 3D images , true color and a
framerate of at least 48 (FPS) , that means that that such a television would need to handle roughly 1,2 GB worth of data every second. This gives us
an idea of what modern technology can do.
The brain probably handle a lot more data than that. Probably as much as ten times this amount or even more.
But what is going on in the brain when this never ending stream of data is recorded? IMV. Three major components in the brain are working on them
simultaneously. Those components are the ‘Consciousness’ , ‘The Me’ and ‘The Self’.
The brain component that deals with consciousness is probably a component that is shared between the ‘Me’ and the ‘Self’, but it is
eventually controlled by the ‘Me’. It displays the incoming data for the ‘Me’ as like we would watch a movie. If we shut our eyes , we would
only get data from the other senses.
The ‘Self’ (which is the processor) processes the data instantly and stores most of the data in the short time memory, until sleep takes place.
Besides processing the endless stream of conscious data , the processor (The Self) will in addition be busy interrupting and contacting the ‘Me’
with other processing as well, as it is capable of multitasking. This processing can be any issues related to the conscious (current) data , data
from the past or data related to the future . Because the ‘Me’ and the ‘Self’ is designed with some sort of built in ‘inner voice’ , the
dialog between the ‘Me’ and the ‘Self’ is sensed like it is some sort of inner dialog taking place. If the ‘Self’ detects conscious data
that needs the ‘Me’ or the brains operating system to take some kind of immediately action or detects danger, everything else will be interupted,
as such events has always highest priority.
This inner dialog can also be reversed. That means that it is the ‘Me’ that contacts the ‘Self’ and not the other way around. It Is the
‘Me’ that eventually controls the ‘Self’ , but as we have discussed earlier. The technique that is needed to control the ‘Self’ are hard
to master. The ‘Me’ which is the ‘End user’ is also the component that builds personality (the person we become) . It will asks for serviced
from the ‘Me’ whenever it needs answers or something analyzed. Questions from the ‘Me’ to the ‘Self’ has always higher priority than the
other way around.
If all the above is true, The ‘Self’ (The processor) must have an extremely huge capacity. However. There are many things that influence the speed
of this processor , either it is in a positive or bad way. The same thing also goes for the components that collects and produce the consciousness.
There are many things that influence the level of consciousness. If the level of consciousness is somehow degraded the data that it receives and
display is of lesser quality and thus the processing of these data gets degraded too. It’s probably like watching a low resolution movie versus a
high resolution movie. The better the quality of the data is , the more details we get.
The smallest amount of time the brain can detect from the now is (if this all is true) one single frame of conscious data.
Anyway. This are my taught and ideas. However it works. It’s pretty damned interesting issues though. Don’t you think?
