The power of questioning

All the symbols were living happily in their joint happily. They were all doing their jobs peacefully without creating nay noise. And it was a world of monotonicity in a way. No curiosity, no challenges and no questions too.  But the people [symbols] never realized it as they never know the other world of curiosity. So one day a ? (question mark) was pushed out of heaven[or was it from hell] to the joint family of symbols.

Ahh… the miracle started from that moment. People started to question things.. new discoveries were made..the life changed totally..

Questioning is always an effective tool. In fact a question can catch the attention of even a wandering mind completely as our brain always works in the direction of a question it heard.

And yes, “asking a question is a good way to catch your crush’s attention too”

Consciousness, an illusion

Consciousness; is it an illusion?

After all, we are physical beings, driven by a physical brain.

So how comes a software embedded in the brain connecting us with the outside world?

Who feeds the program into the hardware?

How can a physical brain help us to experience the world?

I had a feeling about it – A gut instinct

Many a times, we always have a “This is it” feeling, a gut instinct. And often it works out. We are unaware of the reasons behind our gut instincts. They are felt at once.

Instincts are not something in our brain; they are some feelings. In fact, instincts play tricks in our intelligent brain making us cautious on some unfamiliar things, making us conscious on the environment.

They can’t be called as some random thoughts; instead they are some scientific feelers.  It’s actually, every cell in our body thinking alike and working together.

“List every time your gut instinct helped you.” I read somewhere like this. Sounds good, no?

So how do you exercise your intuitive senses to make it sharper?

How do you decide which gut instincts to believe, supporting your feelings with facts?

Pregnant woman finds pregnant ladies all over – Frequency illusion

Wanted to get some information from xxx person. So was thinking how to contact xxx. And interestingly, xxx was there in news, two days later. Then late night took a book and surprised to see a mention of xxx. Got a phone call in the next day morning wherein which also the person told about xxx.  Weird..

Surprised on the occurrences..? Is the universe trying to convey something.. 😉

When something is there in our mind, it comes in front of us.

Like, now you thought about me, and I am here, making the connection.. 😉

Or a pregnant woman finds pregnant ladies everywhere around her.

Or when I bought a new car, I could see many people driving them all over the roads.

Are all these some pure coincidences..?. Or is it like, it was there before also. But our senses didn’t record it then. And now, there happened some causes to record it in our brain.

Our brain was looking for information connected to us.  So we surround ourselves with information related to our thoughts. And we feel a natural increase in frequency of those occurrences. It is nothing but a selective attention, overlooking many other countless things that surround us.  And this is “frequency illusion”.

I am quite sure many of you might have experienced this cognitive bias. If not, be ready to experience this brainy stimulation in the next few days.

Brain makes decision seconds before you are aware of it

Yesterday I was chatting with my friend over phone. After sometime, we said bye and were about to disconnect the call. While I was just disconnecting the call, I heard her voice from the other side asking me something more. But without sensing it fully, the call had been disconnected by my hands..

My hands could not be prevented from disconnecting the call, while I was hearing her voice.

Is it like hands acting ahead of brain..? Senses to hands are also given by brain.. If so why such timing issue?

This is not a single incident. I felt it many a times, in many occasions (not merely in phone calls)

The call was not actually disconnected, that’s why I heard her voice partially. But all of a sudden hands acted to cut the call. May be the instructions were given to hands ahead of time and hands were simply acting accordingly.

reflexIt is told that brain takes decision 7 seconds before our conscious mind becomes aware of them.

May be the decision to cut the call was taken by brain 7 seconds ahead of time. And hands acted accordingly. In the meantime brain changed its decision recognizing that the other person is talking.But the call was already disconnected by the time conscious mind became aware of the brain’s changed decision.

But even then, why it could not take any reflex actions or changed actions according to new circumstances..?

Do you love practically?

This is in connection to my yesterday’s post.

Do you love with your brain?

Brain is usually treated as the source of wisdom or practical life.

So is your love surrounded by a practical approach, leaving all those true emotions apart?

There are many around us wearing the mask of love. It is a kind of show off as they are forced to do in their practical life.

But will the true emotions of love root there, in that practical world..? Won’t it be a kind of robotic..? A need based love..?

In today’s world, all are busy in playing with sentiments and feelings of others. I was wondering how love turned out to be an obsession or a need nowadays. And more over people are mistaking infatuation or attraction with love.

Love is as simple as it is. So why should we make it complicated? Give your right energy and be with that true love.
