”Human Mind And Intelligence”

Our topic on this page is the Human Mind and its activities. We will try to understand some basics for this hidden treasure within our heads. Well, as the definition of the mind is not so clear, we will try to organize our thoughts so to be able to keep up with this interesting conversation.

We know, the human mind was the object of study of philosophy, Psychology, and religion. Each one, based on its view, defined and explained the mind and its workings. They’re many theories about the human mind. Some ancient civilizations refer to it as the connection between the body and the soul. The human soul is an immaterial essence, which is combined with the physical body, and both form the human individual. Some also believe that the soul is immortal as the spiritual essence can exist without the physical body.

Science approached the mind through psychology. The Scientific Research concludes the human mind is the result of the brain activities and has a conscious as well as a subconscious side.

The Philosophy of Mind is a branch of philosophy that deals with the nature of the thoughts and experiences of humans. The main difference between Philosophy and psychology lies in the way they examine mentality. Psychology approaches mental phenomena through scientific experiments while Philosophy through reasoned arguments.

Consciousness, a Great Mystery

The great mystery around the human mind is the Consciousness. This attribute separates us from animals and makes us the dominant species on the planet. If you watch the Discovery channel, series about animals, you may feel that nature left us totally unarmed compared with animals. Well, our weapon is our consciousness.

The problem of consciousness is that it remains a mystery about its nature. Some neurologists describe it as the result of firing neurons in our heads. But this is just a physical approach. Well, it’s reasonable that consciousness is the result of brain electrical and chemical activity, but yet this explanation does not answer the question “what really is?”

We know that the brain uses electrical pulses carrying bits of information. Every brain function is just electrical signals that are transmitted through the neuron network towards the appropriate processing center. The signal gets decoded upon its arrival, and the result is our feelings, thoughts, etc.

Awareness is by nature a never-ending complex process. At any time, we have a reason to do something, and we know it. This kind of knowledge exists from the beginning of our lives. So, how you would describe this never-ending process in the form of electrical activity?

States of Consciousness

Another interesting topic that got much of attention and research was the States of Consciousness. Despite the vague definition of Consciousness, Science has recognized that there are many different states of it. Cases such as Sleep, Alertness, Dreaming, and Meditating are some relevant examples.

In the late 1950s, a strange behavior during the sleep state was observed. The eyes of the sleepers were starting to move rapidly every 90 minutes of sleep, which is at the end of a sleep cycle.

This condition is called REM (Rapid Eye Movement) and has a relation with the dreaming state. The experiment subjects reported that they were dreaming when they were awakened during the REM.

The interest in the Altered States of Consciousness was born. Altered states include sleeping, dreaming, biofeedback, meditation, hypnosis, drug-induced and generally speaking, anything that is different from the normal waking state. We will see all these states of mind in detail.

Intelligence & Memory

Two other mental aspects that are not independent constitutes the learning capacity. These are intelligence and memory.

Intelligence is a broad meaning covering many mental activities such as problem-solving, thinking abstractly, learning and understanding, reasoning, etc. There are many Theories of Intelligence that tried to explain and define intelligence, but there is not yet a precise definition of intelligence.

Memory is the mind’s capacity to remember. It is a critical function as, without the memorizing ability, we would be unable to learn, speak, read or form any kind of consciousness.Nevertheless, Memory doesn’t last forever. Forgetting is a memory issue that pulled in the interest of scientists.

”Human, Elements, And Bodies”

The elemental tendencies of one’s physical and mental body, explaining the significance behind this complementary engineering, and the possibility for one’s perception to rise beyond the physical nature.

Do You Know!! How five elements function in the human system, what is the difference in body and mind between males and females?

Ahh!!

This need not be true for every individual, but generally, the female is leaning more towards water while the male is leaning more towards earth. This gives a female a certain level of flexibility, both in body and mind. Leaning towards the earth gives the male a certain sense of firmness and assertion, a certain rigidity, which also gives a certain strength of manifestation.

A lot of women think they are intuitive. It is not necessarily true with every woman, but by nature, because the experiential dimension of the female is a little higher than the logical, they may be a little less logical. As I said, this is not true for every individual. The general tendency is that a woman wants to experience life, while a man wants to understand life. It is a big difference, the way they approach it. This is mainly because of the tilt of the female towards the water and the male towards earth. The other elements play differently for each individual.

Body and Brain

There is no such thing as body and mind, there is just body, body and body! There is a physical body, there is a mental body and there is an energy body. There is no such thing as mind, as such. That is a European invention. Generally, the thought process that is happening is considered as a mind. The thought process is just one aspect of the mental body. There is much more happening right across the system.

By modern definition, what you are referring to as mind is just a certain amount of memory and intelligence. If you look at the nature of your body, every cell in your body has more memory – a trillion times more memory – than you carry in your conscious mind. And we always measure one’s intelligence in terms of the complexity of activity that one can perform. If one can do only simple things, we say, “He is a simpleton.” If one can do many complex things, then we say, “He is an intelligent person.” If you go by this definition, every cell in your body, every molecule of DNA in the system is performing more complex functions than your thought process can ever imagine.
So both in terms of memory and the complexity of activity, which is referred to as intelligence, every cell in your body is far more than your entire brain put together. The only thing is, it is functioning in an automatic mode – you are not conscious of it. With the mental activity, as we refer to the psychological space, you can be reasonably conscious of it. But you are generally not conscious of the mental body that you carry.

Both men and women can train themselves or can become capable or competent of what the other is competent of, in the mental space. That is, a woman, by training, can very much become competent of whatever thought a man is competent of, or a man can become competent of whatever intuitiveness a woman may be competent of. But that will need a certain amount of training. By nature, they would tend to lean this way because, in one, the earth element is strong, while in the other, the water element is strong or dominant.

Complementary Elements

This disposition of elements in male and female is the way it is essential to fulfilling certain basic responsibilities of being male and female. These responsibilities can be argued about today in the modern world because we have created an artificial world of our own. Our cities, our homes, our dwelling places, our working places are all of our makings. Here, the gender differences are leveled out.

But if you lived in the wild, then you would see that these dispositions were naturally necessary. Above all, we exist because a woman that we call our mother bore us. This means that generating the next generation of people is the responsibility of the female body. Because of that, it is made in a certain way, and water is an important element for the reproductive purpose.

The way these two dimensions of the human species are engineered elementally is complementary to each other till a certain age. After that, they reorganize themselves to become their own. After that, people may try to make their emotions paramount and still try to continue that, more out of habit and emotional insecurity. Otherwise, the rapport between these two dimensions – of leaning towards the water and leaning towards earth on the elemental level – is only to a certain point.

How quickly one works out of it also depends on how much energy one develops within themselves. Once one’s perception rises beyond the physical nature, then suddenly there is no male, there is no female. There is just a human form, which can be made competent in many different ways. Competence is not just of doing things, competence is of perception. Competence is a life, not as a person – that one’s life can become more competent than another life to be alive. To be more alive than everything else around you, this means you know life in larger dollops than others.

Aspiring to Transcend

Every human being is capable of this. It is just that socially, people are unfortunately conditioned to believe that they should continue with the same things that they have been doing all their life, otherwise you are a cop-out. Because of this very judgmental and stigmatizing society and out of their own emotional and psychological insecurities, they continue doing the same things. Otherwise, this aspiration of wanting to transcend is there in every human being. If they give themselves a little bit of time away from their office, from their family, from their friends, from social media, from their phones and computers, everyone will know that they need to transcend their present limitations, there is no question about it. They do not need a teaching, they do not need someone goading them all the time. Every human being will know if they just give themselves some time.
