“…simply make things better for someone else, as if I were to be born again, and that someone else, and it doesn't have to be me, but it could be someone like me, that they would have a better life than I had, that everyone was better. There is something seriously wrong with everyone, and that is something I observed when I was very young. We are the problem, and we need to become better, because we are fucking everything up.”
“So this is who I am. There is something seriously wrong with everyone and we need to fix it, if not for us, then for the future generations."
"Everything I have done in this life, and everything I will do, is for this purpose.”

Our Magical Brain Day 183

Neuroscience. The science of studying the human physical brain. Its kind of firm, slightly soft, but mostly firm, if you touch one. The brain is made of tiny cells, like your other body parts. The picture above is one shape of these cells. The cell is alive. The cells requires, food, oxygen, and it also poops. It also has a job to do. Each cell can send an electrical signal, induced by a physical movement that creates a chemical reaction, producing electricity, that results in another physical movement that creates another chemical reaction, that is a signal to cell that is connected.

Each cell can have many neighbors. They may connect to 1 or more neighbors. Their neighbors connect to another neighbor. They all connect to each other through a neighbor. Each thing you know, like a word is represented by at least one of these cells. So imagine, the job of one cell is to send a signal when you use the word 'THE.' So every time you use the word THE the cell tells its neighbor that you require the word THE, so to use it in the sentence in the 'right way.' So the neighbor tells its neighboring cells, until the message reaches the cells that are in charge of making sentences. So the job of some cells is just to relay the message. And the cells have to work as groups, or as a team. One cell is not enough to control all the functions related to the uses of one word. You actually need a team of cells.

So if you look at all the words on the page. All the cells responsible for each word were activated. So you have, hundred, thousands, maybe tens of thousands, or more of cells at work here in this moment. And they are all eating and shitting all the time. So you have other cells that bring them food and liquids, and clean the waste.

One cell can grow and change its shape and thus its neighbors. One cell may needs to signal another neighbor, and getting to this new neighbor takes time. An old neighbor has an older relationship. Moving next to a new neighbor will lead to a new connection. The more a cell gets to work with and thus know a new neighbor, the closer they become, and they soon become old pals.

Sometimes cells die. Other cells may come in and take their responsibility, which does take time. Also, sometimes cells move away from one neighbor, because it wasn't relevant to the job anymore. To rebuild that old connection takes time.

Some cells are very long, and some are much shorter. Some connect to many cells, some connect only to two. They can take various shapes and sizes. But they all need oxygen and food, without that they will die. The body tries to keep the brain cells the most well kept. If there is lack of food, the body tries to give the brain cells more of the food.

Behind every single word you know, there is at least one cell responsible for knowing it, but there are probably much more, like a team. So behind each word you have a team of cells that remember the word, hold its meanings and uses. There are teams of cells for remembering how to speak that word, and how to write that word.

The cells respond to what you tell them. The cells will learn any definition you teach them. The cells remember any words you tell them. Within hours of a new word, the cells have already changed their shapes. And with more time, and more teaching, they remember the word better and better. Soon the cells will become old pals.

Proof of this can be seen when a persons learns an incorrect definition. If a person learns that the word cat means a dog, they learn that. So the amount of effort it takes to learn an incorrect definition is the same effort it takes to learn a correct definition. So why not learn the correct definition the first time, and spend as much time as needed to learn the absolute right definition for all the words in your classes. You then would be fully prepared for your classes, which is the foundation that a person's life is built upon.

Everyone is capable of learning by proof of how your brain learns whatever you teach it. The brain is not able to perceive what is right or wrong for it, but you are able to find out, learn, and thus see what is best or right to learn.
