The brain processes 400 billion bits of information a second. But we are only aware of 2,000 of those. The infinite information that the brain is processing every single second tells us that there’s more to the world than we’re perceiving.
Why should the sky be the limit?
I’m a big fan of consciousness science and consciousness engineering. To me, the brain is the most important organ in the human body – it is the command center for physiological, psychological, emotional, and even spiritual well-being. Today, discoveries in quantum theory and physics have rendered human consciousness a viable area of study. Scientists are deeply interested in finding answers to explain the enigmatic coexistence of the material and non-material worlds.
Following is a journal entry of mine from 2016: “There is no condition in existence that’s more threatening to the human spirit than mental illness. First, it shatters an identity; then, it sabotages the mind; and ultimately, it promises to obliterate the soul. Until the stigma is abolished, people with mental illnesses will never get the ovation they deserve for the strength is takes to survive it.”
I believe definitive study on the existence of human consciousness will transform the way we perceive and treat brain disorders and mental illnesses. Many mental conditions are still largely considered “invisible,” which perpetuates the damaging stigmas that deter adequate recovery. Perhaps these stigmas, almost social ills in and of themselves, will finally be put to rest.
The mind is the unlimited gateway to imagination, inner peace, innovation, and new and better realities. With skills and practices like meditation, prayer, reflection, and contemplation, we can discover vast treasure troves that easily elude us in everyday life. The brain and mind together must be nourished, protected, and developed. No, the sky isn’t the limit for me – there’s far, far, far, more beyond that big, blue, wondrous yonder.
