Daniel Amen: Brain Capability, Evolution and a Question

brain

The homo sapien brain was extremely capable. So much so that it managed to be the only surviving species. As we evaluate various aspects of what could have led to us developing language, here’s a look at how powerful the brain really is. How capable it would ve been of shaping the course of history- and how capable we are, as a species, of actually improving life expectancy, finding new inhabitable worlds and complex global structures that do not exist today.

Not in my words- In Dr.Daniel Amen’s words.

Your brain is involved in everything you do.

Your brain is the organ of your personality, character, and intelligence and is heavily involved in making you who you are.

Your brain controls everything you do, feel, and think. When you look in the mirror, you can thank your brain for what you see. Your brain controls whether you hit the gym or sit at the computer to check your Facebook page. If you feel the need to light up a cigarette or drink a couple cups of java, that’s also your brain’s doing.ACTION STEP Remember that your brain is involved in everything you do, every
decision you make, every bite of food you take, every cigarette you smoke, every worrisome thought you have, every workout you skip, every alcoholic beverage you drink, and more.

“Having a sense of purpose, as well as connections to past and future generations, allows us to reach beyond ourselves to affirm that our lives matter. Without a spiritual connection, many people experience an overriding sense of despair. Morality, values, and a spiritual connection to others and the universe are critical for many people to feel a sense of wholeness and connection, and a reason to get up in the morning and to take good care of themselves.”

So here’s the Question!

Where can you take the human race, if you have full control over your brain? Just look back at how far we have come. The mobile phone in your hand – could’ve been part of a magic show in the 1970s. Whats the magic show of 2040 going to be? Be alive, be alert to the possibilities of your mind.
