What the brain does from the exact moment that we wake is it battles itself from boredom. So we drink coffee to stay alert, constantly look at our smartphones for signs of life, surf pointlessly on the Internet. We’re constantly searching for any known stimulants which will entertain our mind.
The conscious brain has no particular aim, it floats. It’s not directed. What it’ll continuously do is revisit previous experiences, scan for new exciting opportunities, attempt to solve problems, which kicks in the creativity juices.
These days, the boredom gaps are being filled in better from external sources, this thanks to the various gadgets which provides entertainment for everyone. So the occupation of our brain becomes easier, which also blunts our ability to think for ourselves.
Doing nothing, becoming stagnant is now turning precious. The best “ah-ha” moments come when the mind is silent, no distractions, while just quietly sitting waiting for someone, or when lying in bed right before falling asleep, we flow.
Entertainment can be mind blowing awe. Their construction are scientifically designed, tailored to make us even better people. There’s a variety of tactics which activates various triggers in the brain, keeping us interacted.
Why Romantic Partners Remain Drug To The Brain
As opposed to our need for lots of friends on Facebook, which serves as a social order of evolutionary purpose, it’s our drive for real true genuine love, which evolves us into the quest for reproduction.
What’s located somewhere in the remote region of the brain is an extremely small area that’s responsible for the love response, which is more intense than just “liking” someone, an ordinary friendship.
The sensation of love, that pang in the groin, the hunger of being infatuated is a “gut feeling” which is manufactured by this specific area of brain, the same exact area and feeling which generates euphoria that’s induced by certain recreational drugs.
So for those lucky enough to genuinely feel deeply in love, instead of they thinking that they’re actually in love, they’re instead feeling a “high” of a drug instead.
The Gag Reflex… Are You Getting Aroused Yet
Not being in the mood eventually turns into getting aroused, and for that to happen, to get into the mood, the entire process is thought to be evolutionary in nature.
This based on thousands of years of humans shrugging off each other in the attempts to reproduce. It’s the female who usually finally gives in. The reason being the “act” is disgusting to them, the grunting, sweating, bad body odor, being the biggest turnoff elicitors.
So how then do people get it on at all, how are there now over 7 billion people on this earth, this since our original instinct is disgust towards our partners to do the hump.
The best explanation is a temporary loss of senses which activates lust, which eliminates the disgust factor and becomes enjoyable, which activates a particular stimuli that weakens the defenses and the hesitation when approached.
We Love Movies Because It’s Like We’re Dreaming
From the perspective of your brain which doesn’t know any better, it’s known that watching a captivating movie, and dreaming are both extremely similar experiences for the mind.
So there you sit, in a pitch dark theater eating popcorn, this sensation to the brain is the closest to sleeping in your own bed and dreaming. The difference of course being that you’re wide awake, eyes wide open, but what you see on the screen registers a similar response as if you were in a deep sleep, and dreaming it.
The movie producers have now fined tuned the movie making process to the point of emulating the actual visual and audio, to what’s known as “sensori-motor” processing, which is the exact area of the brain that’s associated with analysis, self-awareness, and dreaming.
The experts argue that this particular region of the brain, known as the prefrontal cortex, is what allows us to get lost in the movie, and gets us in that dream like state.
Why We Fall Victim To The Crime Of Music
Music is a complete human emotion that’s universal, but how it affects certain people are as varied as it sounds, which is highly dependent on the personality of the listener.
There are some who will get actual “chills” up their spine listening to a certain musical piece, which is an actual medical condition, but most however do not feel such sensation.
The core personality metrics such as conscientiousness, openness, and neuroticism, to experience music was measured on these dimensions. It was found that ones “openness” to experience, related the best for those who felt the chills when listening to music.
Those who scored high on openness tended to be more creative, curious about various things, while having active imaginations. So if you happen to get the occasional goosebumps yourself from listening to music, then you’ll most likely feel the same in this and other artistic mediums as well.
Every Breath You Take Reveals More Than Ever
It’s thought that doing those time consuming blood tests at the clinic, along with other intensive forms of diagnosis when it comes to medical issues, may soon be something in the past.
Medical experts are now actually able to use just breath sample tests to uncover certain health disorders such as kidney function, diabetes, asthma, gastrointestinal infections, among others. This once the bio-markers in the exhaled breath is analyzed.
For any reason that you’ve ever previously needed blood tests on, there may now just be a simple breath test that’s required, this as long as there’s some type of a volatile component.
To some experts in this area, it’s even thought that breath tests may eventually be more accurate than doing the actual blood tests themselves, when detecting certain types of illness.
You’re Nothing But A Social Reject
There’s proof which supports that getting rejected socially, being an outcast, however unsettling that may feel, actually promotes more creative thinking for these individuals.
Those who are viewed by themselves along with the general population to be a bit more unique than others, a tad weird, will usually value their personal goals over social goals.
They’ll then reinforce their feelings of being distinct and unique, which increases their creativity, helping the socially inept person to recruit better more creative ideas from different areas of their brain.
