Eli Levine's curator insight, April 30, 2014 2:30 PM

So, if I'm reading this right, it means that it's not necessarily variability in the way we receive information from the outside world, but in the places where we synthesize the information.

 

While a certain amount of variability is likely to be healthy for the species as a whole, there are some views of the world that are entirely inaccurate to how things work in common reality.  The human brain, as it is, is susceptible to so many illusions, delusions and tricks from the outside and inner world that we rationalize, explain and entrench in our ways of thinking and feeling.  Everything from the belief that we see Jesus's face in a cheese sandwich to the illusion that financial wealth that comes at the expense of social and ecological costs is worth pursuing, to the notion that any of us have any real power on this plane of existence that is not received from another to the false beliefs about how the world works and what the world consists of; it's all coming from within our brains, even if you buy into the notion that there is something external to our brains present.  That external thing, whatever it may be, still has to flow through the neural networks of the brain that it finds itself entombed in.

 

So, what does this mean for us?

 

It means that we can begin discovering who has healthier and functional regions of the brain for processing and synthesizing information, which give us a more accurate perception of ourselves and our world, thus making us be better decision makers, in comparison to those who have less functional brains that we can, hopefully, one day correct with the patient's permission and the necessary technology that would put glasses on our mind's eyes, such that we all can see, enjoy and be competant reality sensors and decision makers vis a vis common reality.  Could you imagine if a majority of people adopted the technology and, thus, achieved clairvoyance?  Imagine what else we could do to help each other, ourselves and all of life on this planet and others.

 

Yet, I have a hunch that fate, (call it the petty jealousy of God or the gods) would deny humanity that capability, such that we remain stuck in our existing situation, unable to advance the universal consciousness to the next level of being.  We're looming on civil war in America; the build is happening.  This research needs to be taken somewhere else, where it can be safely stored and worked on while people fight over petty little seats of power, glory that is only relevant amongst their own tribe and ideological beliefs and principles that have no bearing in common reality.

 

This whole line of research could probably lead to the most significant advances for humanity, technoloogically, sociologically, politically, economically, environmentally, cosmologically.  It could possibly be done within the course of this present century, if everything works out.  And it could lead to a permanent improvement of our species' capabilities and competencies.

 

Imagine if we could live in a world without the actual mental illnesses, presently diagnosed or otherwise, which cause harm to our species.  Imagine if we could eliminate major depression, schizophrenia, persistent ideological belief, lack of perception, hatred, greed, psychopathy, etc.

 

It's all in the brain, that much is for sure.

 

Let's start there.

 

Think about it.

Why we cannot learn a damn thing from Semco, or Toyota

Why we cannot learn a damn thing from Semco, or Toyota | @liminno | Scoop.it

The future of work is already here. Not only in the minds of some outstanding thinkers, high-minded idealists, quirky innovators and lofty utopians – or people like you who are reading this blog! No, the future of work and organizational leadership is tangible. It is out there in the real world: You can find it in the practice of a few dozen extraordinary, pioneering organizations that have cracked the code, solved the puzzle, removed all doubt. I’m talking about “the Toyotas” of this world. The W.L.Gores, the Southwest Airlines, the Googles, the Handelsbankens, the Semcos. Companies like these have been doing things differently for 20, 30, 40 or even 50 years, in the case of Toyota. Yeah, we heard all that before! you say? Then I ask you: And what have we really learned from these incredibly great companies?
