The Brain Mystery
Since the very onset of the human civilization, we have been admiring our own brains, accepting them as highly mysterious organs which function without our complete control. On the contrary, we ourselves are controlled by certain parts of our brains we do not even understand. Thus, through various researches during the past years, we have managed to learn quite a lot about our brain, our nervous system and, thereby, ourselves.
One of the things we discovered is that our brain has specific centers for almost every action we do. Sight has a center, and so does hearing, balance, smell and all other aspects of our existence. What is more, with time, these centers, if we train them correctly, get more and more developed. Therefore, musicians are likely to have a highly developed hearing part of the brain etc.
Moreover, we now know that our brain continues developing even after we reach our age of senility. This has helped our scientists understand more about the brain, being closer and closer to developing a connection between computers and our nervous system, possibly creating a completely new user interface somewhere in the future.
Also, our mind has its own subconscious levels, the ones which we are unaware of. These act when we are attacked by illnesses or any other signs of danger, reacting protectively. Also, they contain experiences which guide us even though we are not completely aware of them.
This leads us to an aspect of programming our subconsciousness so that we can deal with some of our bad habits or personality issues. Many self-hypnosis CDs or hypnotherapy itself were created and developed for these purposes.
Controlling the Subconsciousness
Even though we have an illusion of being capable of controlling everything about our mind, this is only an illusion. In reality, we are in control of only a small part of our personalities and action. The rest is suggested from our subconsciousness. Therefore, this presents an ideal ground for further research and, by learning how to address and modify our subconsciousness, we can mend many problems we might be having and change numerous things we do not like about ourselves.
Neurolinguistic programming, hypnotherapy and many other approaches are capable of modifying our subconsciousness. However, this area is still under research and we are bound to be amazed with what the future of this kind of science and self-recognition has in store for us.
