The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
Our brains are wired to keep us on autopilot. This is mainly why we have no control over when we act out or think about something. We all know it’s a bad idea to eat with your hands. And it’s a bad idea to have a glass of wine with dinner because drinking with your hands can cause you to slip.
The problem is when we’re on autopilot for so long that we forget we’re on autopilot. Because when we’re not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them they control us.
That said, it’s no secret that our brains are wired to keep us on autopilot. But as the brain research scientist and entrepreneur Dr. Daniel Amen once said: “We can learn to control our own thoughts.” Amen is a prominent pioneer in the field of brain training and is the co-founder of the company that makes the app that lets you do just that.
Amen has made numerous claims about the ability of the brain to control thoughts, but the ones I’ve seen him cite are almost always about the brain learning to do things it wasn’t originally capable of performing. He claims that the brain will now be able to automatically make decisions and act upon them. Amen’s research has shown the ability of the brain to learn, and this is a crucial point that proves that our brain is not able to be off-line and still function.
This may be a trivial point, but I have to say, I think this is the one thing I agree with. The ability of our brain to learn and grow is so powerful that we cannot even imagine being able to do without it. And this is why we need to take care of it.
And this is why I think that in the future, we will be able to cure cancer, and prevent brain damage, but we cannot imagine doing it without the help of the brain.
The thing is that our mind is a machine and we need to make it stronger and smarter, which is why I think that someday we will be able to take out cancer with the help of the brain. In the meantime, this is just a trivial point.
The issue, of course, is that it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the solution to the problem of cancer and brain damage is “treat it with surgery and drugs,” but that can’t be the right solution.
I hate to say it, but I think drugs are the only way to treat many diseases. The brain is a very complex organ and has so many functions that its difficult to simply kill it off and put in a pill. The best way to kill cancer is to remove it from the body. The best way to treat brain damage is to take it out and put in a machine. The best way to treat the effects of dementia is to take it out and put in a machine.
