The following is an excerpt from a book I’m writing, titled, “Inner Wealth, Outer Wealth.”
This section is called: ‘Brain enhancement to wake up the god within.’
Rudiger Gamm, a very below-average student, especially in the popularly hated mathematics, felt so annoyed and frustrated by his failures in achievement that he started to train his below-average brain in math; years and years of this and he became a famous “human calculator,” and so, able to perform extremely complex mathematics. This simple exemplar tells us that to carry this three pound sponge-like tissue structure within us every day, then, should be an almighty source of motivation to all achievement beyond ordinary means, and it should empower us to feel exceptional and able to leap farther than the currents of procreation, food and shelter which the middling ego creates as the single purpose of the human creature. Rationality and emotional resilience work the same way, as neural connections all of them which can be, through focus and persistence, modified or strengthened, mastered and controlled to do our bidding and not let a lazy and ego-centered human nature tell us how to think and behave.
We can run our actions and design our future exactly, by managing our responses and our perceptions of our environments. The great advantage the high-minded individual possesses over the world and over his own Lower Animal is the formation of his own brain (extremely powerful emitter and receiver of electromagnetic signals), which routinely receives and transmits signals but must be physically fit and structured to receive and transmit signals of great power and eminent design; this is to say, that a poor brain structure will receive depressing and mundane signals while emitting the same out into the world around it, but a richly structured brain will receive wonderful, life-affirming insights while emitting the same out into the world. See, whatever we are doing at any given time, we are physically shaping and modifying our brains or neuronal connections anyway—so why not shape and modify these neuronal connections to make ourselves stronger, more intelligent (in IQ and EQ), more talented, and better in every aspect to create superior futures for ourselves??
This certainly makes the world a better place by inspiring people which receives our brain signals, and also by creating situations of love and positive progress into the planet. Even through this writing, via this simple blog post, and even though my being on the other side of the country or the planet, I am motivating you and sending you some signals to your brain due to the real information my brain put into these words; however, the message here will or will not get to you and be assimilated by your brain depending on the training to receive higher signals you have given to it, depending on the state of your own brain
In November 1985, a scientific report about the brain plasticity of rats came out and it contained that rats in more enriching environments had more robust brains; specifically, these rats had acquired more glial cells in relation to their neurons. Now, glial cells, or simply glia, strengthen and nourish the busier neurons, which are the brain cells which communicate with one another forming thus a communal communiqué. We might even say that glial cells are the official maintenance service for the neuronal community. While these nerve cells exchange great information, they leave behind unnecessary residue (garbage) which is potassium ions, then these potassium ions gather outside the working neurons; but, however, that unnecessary residue (garbage) soon will become a hazard and hindrance for the neurons’ communiqué, due to the fact that there is no space for the potassium ion’s discharges. Glial cells then do maintenance or clean up those mentioned potassium ions to permit neurons to fire repetitively, faster, and in a more ordered manner; and, in addition, they as well absorb certain neurotransmitters which also risk the obstruction of the neural communiqué.
This is the difference between being great and ordinary, the difference between, for example, Einstein and you, or da Vinci and you; hence, Einstein’s and da Vinci’s brains, through hard work, self-discipline, and through the creation of their own environments by the management of their perspectives, continually grew more and more glial cells which enriched the working neurons firing signals in their brains. A higher ratio of glia to neurons than other brains means that the number of glial cells increases due to the high metabolic demand (work) which, in this case, Einstein and da Vinci put upon their neurons. So, then, what creates more glia or more power surrounding the firing neurons (a richer environment) is personal and affluent experiences, the perspective you give to your environment, and the level of taxation one administers to his brain processes daily.
And since this is the basic tenet or core-analysis of all progress in the world and understanding of our past, present and future, as in the individual molding of our thoughts and the absolute devise of our desired destinies, being always self-aware and aware of our environment can enormously enrich our own perceptions of reality and of our own unique life experiences. Think about this: Who makes the world a better place through great innovations, technologies, art forms, philosophy, expressions galore, to thus keep it going forward for the generations to come …?? Is it ordinary people with ordinary brain processes which remain lazy and wallowing in self-induced fear of failure to excel and be more, or extraordinary people like Plato, Aristotle, da Vinci, Michelangelo, Mozart, Einstein, Hitchcock, Spielberg, Le Corbusier, even the businessman selling his own crafts on the city’s park, among others with chosen higher brain processes, which strive to be the best they can be and face the challenges presented in the path to incredible success…??
