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.
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

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

Human brain is acknowledged to be the most complex structure known to the mankind. Technology has advanced to such levels in the recent years that it has helped the mankind learn more about it in the last two decades than in the entire human history.
One of the biggest contributors for such progress …more
The typical scientific approach to understand how the brain works is by debating and forming opinions based on ideas and observations. As all of them are based on perceptions, which can be distorted by many factors, they differ from person to person, making it difficult to understand how they work conclusively. …more
