Dangerous Knowledge Unconscious Mind
You can use the strength of your nonconsciousness to reach your goals. Ask your brain partner for help to succeed.Dangerous Knowledge: the Science of Your Unconscious
I thought I knew it all about the brain and conscious and subconscious mind.
Here's what I learned through Science Daily articles over the past two years.
Did you know that your conscious mind (left hemisphere) using analysis, planning and reasoning, has only 40 bits of information per second capacity (broadband)?
Compared to what? Your subconscious (nonconscious mind) ? get this ? has a average of 11 million bits of information capacity per second. Therefore, our conscious experience of life compared to what our senses take in - is one grain of sand compared to the entire Jones Beach.
What happens to the rest of the 11 million bits per second that we are not
conscious of having?
Like the Wizard of Oz, the 11 millions bits per second are working hard to keep
your body and mind operating 24/7. Their job is sending oxygen and
glucose (fuel) to your 100 billion neurons, removing carbon dioxide and toxins,
repairing and maintaining 62,000 miles of your blood vessels. How many miles?
Google: 100 billion neurons; 62,000 miles of blood vessels in each human.
Most of our mental life takes place unconsciously, and is our normal system of
functioning. How can we know about our Nervous and Immune system when they operate subliminally ? below the threshold of consciousness?
What happens when we open the curtain and reveal our personal Wizard of Oz?
It is scary because we discover that Homo sapiens do not live in real time. We
experience our world only after a delay factor, after the fact. Conscious mind
is let into the loop of knowledge only after the action starts. We lag behind the processing carried out by our Brainstem, Basal Ganglia, Nervous and Immune
So What? Our brain unconsciously (subliminally) permits us to use
much of 11 million bits per second of the sensory information to seek our goals
and create behaviors to fulfill our destinies. There are secret strategies.
You are much more than meets the eye. There is a Wizard in your mind looking
out for your affairs called nonconsciousness. It influences, persuades and convinces,
using new sensory information, but does not dominate consciousness.
Consciousness is your personal experience of life's environment. You have a personal sensory experience of knowing, and of your sense of sensing.
You can only describe what you feel, not offer evidence and proof.
Society is afraid of subliminal perception and your nonconscious, and until recently
denied it exists. Why? We could be voting or buying like robots, cyborgs, and androids, without conscious knowledge (choice) of our behaviors.
If you have no will power, volition (conation), or real choice, are you free in a democratic society? Subliminal perception and nonconsciousness are threats to
personal responsibility for our actions. Who is the experiencer and decision maker?
The answer is an integration (alignment) of left and right hemispheres, subconscious and conscious mind, will power, ego and echt-self. You are a unified mind and body, with access to more information about people and decision-making than you
know or imagine.

Unconscious And Reaching Goals
People learn to read and speak, do math and science consciously (Semantic Memories). Once these synapses are mapped in our neurons, they become Neural
Networks (pathways and circuitry) and can be accessed for future use.
Reading and speaking are not conscious behaviors, we do not know in advance
(unless we follow a written script) how we will phrase and what we will say next.
Once we know formulas, equations and algorithms, they go on autopilot and are
retrieved from nonconsciousness.
Experiences are more powerful than knowledge because they have emotions attached to their neural networks. Episodic Memory (experiences) permits us to associate new information with old experiences. That is the secret of memory ?
the law of association between what we knew (past) and what we want to learn that is new. See: Law of Peg and Link.
Who Says so?
Psychological Science journal, 03.2008. Hebrew University, B. Eitam.
Humans are aware of conscious decisions leading to our personal goals. We are unaware of the profound impact of our unconscious processes moving us to
decision making and fulfilling our successful destiny.
We can learn complex structure about our environment, and absorb medical and legal text using our nonconscious implicit learning processes. There are strategies.
Experiments indicate that very strong unintentional programs of Implicit
(endogenous) Learning are linked to our goals and decision-making. Of course we
are unaware of both the nonconscious Semantic and Episodic Memories that trigger our behaviors leading to fulfilling our goals.
What kind of goals? Academic success, career promotions, and even knowledge
for knowledge sake. How can we program our nonconscious mind?
Command Affirmations using repetition and emotional intent are conscious
behaviors to program and condition our nonconscious mind.
The format consists of this language, "Every Day in Every Way, I'm getting better and better." It is repeated at specific times of the day. You insert the specific goal
desired. Creating a Mental Movie of attaining the goal is a second strategy. It requires repetition and an emotional attachment. Both are as real as a heart attack.
Would you have a competitive advantage in your career and personal productivity,
if you could read and remember three (3) books, articles and reports in the time
your peers can hardly finish one? How about doubling your long-term memory?
Ask us how.
