God Dammit and Kierkegaard’s Wounds of Negativity
Inspired by Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)’s quote, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” The titled responsion is a condeming George Steiner reference.
Negating the ideal and focusing on the negative sharpens sharpens one’s confidence and polishes one’s presentation, all thanks to the prefrontal cortex and theory of mind.
The prefrontal cortex is considered to be an integral part of ‘higher’ human brain functions. It is an important part of the executive network, which includes reasoning, planning, and decision-making. It also helps in emotion and personality by influencing the perception and control of proper social behaviors.
What is the Theory of Mind? It refers to the power that humans have to influence or be influenced by another person’s actions, feelings, thoughts, and feelings. It is considered a skill that can be learned, cultivated, and honed in order to become more powerful.
A human can think of himself as his own best friend but still consider himself ‘the one’ that everyone’s mind follows. This concept of self-superiority is not a myth or an exaggeration. A human brain is wired in such a way that it believes that it is superior to others. However, this idea that one’s brain is superior to others is not always true.
Human beings were originally animals. As they evolved into mammals, they began to exhibit different traits. For example, there was a need for speech and language; there was hunting and eating food, and a desire to work. Humans evolved to have desires and interests other than food and survival. But these same human beings did not become a civilization overnight.
Humans developed the Theory of Mind as they moved forward in life. They began to develop the ability to communicate with and control their emotions, thoughts, and feelings. These feelings and thoughts become what we call ‘thoughts’. It is a mental process that takes place within the brain, just like the way a thought occurs when the body is awake.
The human brain has neurons in it that is responsible for storing all our thoughts. The neurons are also responsible for transmitting the information to the rest of the brain through signals called ‘neural impulses’. These impulses are sent from the cortex to the cerebrum, which sends signals back to the neurons.
As human beings developed the Theory of Mind, it allowed them to make decisions based on the information that was stored in their mind. The human brain has the capability to reason through its many possible scenarios and come up with a decision based on how it believes it can win or be defeated. Once the decision has been made, it then travels to the limbic system, the part of the brain that helps people deal with emotion, and memories.
The Theory of Mind is the most important skill that human beings have. It is a gift that is often forgotten. Some people do not know what it is and how it works and what it does.
The Theory of Mind is a gift that all humans are given by Nature. If humans don’t learn how to harness its power and use it to our advantage, there will be no better, stronger, and smarter species on the planet.
Humans need to understand the concept of “what is my point of view.” When you are able to find out what your point of view is, you can begin to change it and make the world a better place. Think about the world that you want to live in. What is it that you would like to see?
When you look at what’s going on around you and what you see happening, you need to think about your point of view and what it is. That you would like to happen. Change your point of view and change your actions to ensure that you get there and you can achieve your goal.
In this way, human beings can create wealth, happiness, and peace in their lives. This theory of mind allows us to change our point of view and actions to allow for a better world. Where we will not be slaves to our circumstances and the things that life throws at us. And we will be able to enjoy life fully.
Come On PFC, not UFC
Inspired by E. O. Wilson (Biologist)’s quote, “If history and science have taught us anything, it is that passion and desire are not the same as truth”. The titled responsion is as follows…
Using your frontal cortex means doing the harder thing for the possibility of a desired outcome. Purging excessive possessions, limiting personal spending, and focusing on the love of literature, creating and writing is a passion that I am pursuing. What’s your story?
What do we mean by activating our PFC? The PFC has been implicated in planning complex cognitive behavior, personality expression, decision making, and moderating social behavior. The principal activity of this brain region is considered to be orchestration of thoughts and actions in accordance with internal goals, mainly executive function.
Executive function relates to abilities to differentiate among conflicting thoughts, determine good and evil, better and best, same and different, future consequences of current activities, working toward a defined goal, prediction of outcomes, expectation based on actions, and social “control” (the ability to suppress urges that, if not contained, could lead to socially unacceptable consequences). The frontal cortex supports concrete rule learning.
If it is not evident by now, having better control over this region of the brain quite literally translates to mind over matter. That is not to say emotions are not essential to harness a sense of self. Emotions can be powerful tools, but it is necessary to evaluate which emotions serve you, and which are a fleeting source of distraction. For instance, you may feel like you like someone, but when you actually go on a date with them, you realize you only liked the image you had created in your mind. In this case, passion and desire were not what you thought they were. If you practice good discipline, which includes a presence of mind, chances are you will better excel in all fields, including social interaction, which means reading people for who they are and creating an image of them in your mind that is closer to reality.
