The "Interpreter" in Your Head Spins Stories to Make Sense of the World

The "Interpreter" in Your Head Spins Stories to Make Sense of the World | New Civilizations | Scoop.it

We humans think we make all our decisions to act consciously and willfully. We all feel we are wonderfully unified, coherent mental machines and that our underlying brain structure must reflect this overpowering sense. It doesn’t. No command center keeps all other brain systems hopping to the instructions of a five-star general. The brain has millions of local processors making important decisions. There is no one boss in the brain. You are certainly not the boss of your brain. Have you ever succeeded in telling your brain to shut up already and go to sleep?

Interior and Exterior

Interior and Exterior | New Civilizations | Scoop.it

The Evolution of Consciousness is nothing short of the evolution of everything we experience on the gross and subtle planes. Biological evolution is not separate from this. For it is the nucleus (governing center of consciousness) of any sentient holon that dictates the *use of resources* of that holon thus altering the structural landscape of its matter-energy composition irrevocably. Mind and matter are but the interior and exterior of a single unfolding. (Leo Marrs)
