In the last post, we discussed that in order to modify emotional decisions, we need to have a trained brain and enough energy. We also studied one type of battles between head and heart: holistic evaluation . Through this post, we’ll investigate other areas on which head and heart might not see eye to eye. Let’s study how we emotionally […]
In the last post, we studied the case that the tattoo of a tiger could make the primitive people believe that they possessed the tiger’s hunting skill , because they prematurely generalized  that if two things have the same form, they’ll have similar characteristics. In order to falsify this belief , you must be able to dissect things and […]
So far, we’ve discussed that in order to survive, we need to solve problems and due to limited energy, our brain has developed minergie  the tendency to spend minimum energy to get things done. Thus, the fastest and least effortful solutions are prioritized. Minergie has formed our reactions in two ways: First of all, it creates habits which are […]
To pick up where we left off, our brain had created the supersign of the thing  then stored it in the memory. We also learned that a supersign contains the objective and subjective parts which are respectively perceived and conceived . The supersign of the thing is the first and rock-bottom MEANING that our brain has created . So […]
Supersign  is the first cognitive group of information. It’s extremely important to distinguish between things and their supersign in mind. A thing and its supersign are even more different than you and your image in a mirror. The supersign of the thing  lives rather independently. The thing might perish but its supersign would exist in mind; on the other […]
Through the last post, we referred to the study of some rats’ brain  to discuss that habitual or automated behaviors help us both react to problems or dangers faster and save more energy which is aligned with the fundamental principle of Minergie . We should know that habits can be formed and practiced totally independent of memory. Eugene Pauly […]
so far, we’ve spent four lessons on the reaction which hasn’t been executed and we’ve been experiencing the thing  for a tiny fraction of a second. Since we know nothing about either the thing or our ability, therefore the level of our confidence is 0 , by default, we’d pick the flight reaction .
