This blog reveals what goes on in your mind when you think, make decisions, set goals, etc. and how subconscious and unconscious thoughts and processes influence you in your daily life using simple logic.

Nature has awarded every human being with the feeling that he is superior to others in whatever he does, including anything related to him, like his personality, physical attributes, power, possessions, etc.
Although it is known as superiority bias, there is a mechanism behind it which is not known to science – a mechanism which is the core reason why sports and games exist and is SOLELY responsible for pride, arrogance, flattery, etc. …more
legs do the thinking? No, but close enough. They can be used as placeholders
for the thought process.
In detail: As observed in my studies, making small, repetitive movements like shaking legs, biting nails, playing with fingers or personal objects like glasses, pens etc., which are known as fidgeting behaviours, are tools our brain uses to optimize its operations when engaged in deep …more
Despite exponential progress in mind and brain sciences, without a causal account of the human brain, knowledge about degree of attention, a phenomenon as ubiquitous as breathing, is still a mystery. Following is the first ever explanation of how the mechanism underlying degree of attention (i.e. intensity of attention) …more
Human brain is the most complex object in the observable universe. Its complex functionality is contributed by interactions of many interconnected mechanisms that form what we call ‘mind’. Such mechanisms by themselves are very simple. It is their interactions with each other that result into complex behaviour.
Even when the brain is highly complex, as there is a difference between something being complex and something being …more
If you are new here, please go through the following links, which are essential to understand the basic premise on which all posts of this blog are based.
Although it’s not known to science, the core reason we have two hemispheres in the brain is that in order to optimize our interactions, both of them need to process our ongoing interactions in two different ways.
As per the Dichotomized Operating System model 1:
The left hemisphere, which I call system 1, uses direct logic and the right hemisphere, which I call system 2, uses contextual …more
Following is a brief introduction to the dynamic optimizing aspect of survival and reproduction characteristics based on the process of natural selection. It is the driving force behind mechanisms and processes running in the brain that are responsible for our existence and drive our daily lives.
It is based on the process of natural selection proposed by Charles Darwin in the year 1859 in his book ‘On the Origins of Species – By Means of Natural Selection’.
It explains how all organisms have characteristics with intrinsic tendencies to survive, reproduce and dynamically optimize their operations in a step-by-step manner. All human behaviour is based on such …more
