Modern science is progressing in its ability to understand the human brain and the way it functions in relation to the human being. Prior to Neuroplasticity, science assumed that the brain is the primary operating organ that determines everything about human behavior and action. Our brain is one of the most complex biological structures known to man, but science assumes that the brain drives thought, behavior, perception, emotion, disease and health. New discoveries within the field of neuroscience are starting to illustrate how the brain is taking instruction from something else. Neuroplasticity is the idea that the brain is adaptable and changeable. It’s now being used to treat learning disabilities, brain damage, chronic pain and more.
“The idea that the brain is plastic in the sense of changeable, adaptable and malleable is the single most important change in our understanding of the human brain in four hundred years. Neuroplasticity is that property of the brain that allows it to change its structure and its function, it’s a response to sensing and perceiving the world, even to thinking and imagining. Human thoughts and learning actually turn on certain genes in our nerve cells which allow those cells to make new connections between them.” – Dr. Norman Doidge
Our brain shapes and reshapes itself given how we perceive the environment around us. This is also seen in Phenotypic plasticity, which is the ability of an organism to change it’s observable traits such as morphology, development, biochemical or physiological properties, as well as behavior. All of these things also result from the expression of an organisms genetic structure. Most human beings have a very similar perception of the world, someone who perceives the world completely differently will have a different brain with different neurological connections and gene activation. If our brain shapes itself according to our thoughts and perception of the environment around us, then who is thinking the thoughts that cause our brain to react? Who is you? With so much information concealed from the human race, with so much information available that could change our perception of the planet concealed from us, what type of gene activation within our nerve cells lay dormant? Who you think you are is not actually you, because who you think you are can always change. The real you, the soul that lies within does not change, who you think you are might.
Our current perception of reality is one that includes consumerism and materialism. It is one of being born, going to school, working to make money, retire and more. We all have a collective perception of how the world is, we all have a similar idea of what the world is like and we all think that we have to follow the same path. Human beings are rapidly waking up to truth, in doing so we change our perception of how things are. Changing our thoughts alone, coupled with our changing perception is activating genes within our nerve cells giving rise to something new. Truth is, that things are not how they seem here on planet earth. The veil that’s been blinding the masses is being lifted, and according to neuroplasticity, a change in perception leads to gene activation.
What we should take away from plasticity is that we have the ability to change our brains, that thoughts and perception are directly responsible to how the brain functions. We should ask ourselves what influences our perception and what possibilities are available to us when we spark gene activation resulting from a paradigm change? We should also ask ourselves, where do our thoughts, feelings and emotions stem from that are responsible for triggering changes within our brain. We should ask ourselves where do our thoughts come from? Are they even our own? After all, consciousness creates reality Quantum double slit experiment
Having trouble losing excess weight? This could be one of the biggest reasons why.
We know so much about food now yet much of the population is overweight and unhealthy because of the quality of our food and our perception about food.
