LIFE WITHOUT (A) BRAIN. (A perspective).
It’s about what’s going on. Every perspective is a challenge, but only a few have challenged me more than this one. Though it trans formed my life a couple of years ago already, putting it into words remains a challenge today, perhaps because of what is taught at school, the various worlds involved, and maybe other reasons as well. It’s all about what’s going on, and with no lack of that, let’s get started.
“What’s going on on Earth?” If we asked an alien, it would probably say, “Earthlings are dealing with what’s going on.”
“Why do you ask?” So it’s about that, but also about how to make it simple. Will you be disappointed? Well, I won’t spoil a good question with a biased answer. You be the judge.
The alien is right. Everything on Earth is dealing with what’s going on. Expressed in a simple formula: “Stimulus, Response.” Without it, we’d be dead and gone in the afternoon. To put it into context, here’s how it looks over the past 4.65 billion years, that is since the beginning of Earth, in their order of appearance:
1: The elements (fire, air, wind, water)
When the list is read from top to bottom, they are the stimuli, and when read from the bottom up, they are the responses.
At school, the wordy are conditioned to believe “Stimulus, Response” is a 4-step process consisting of…
2: Figure it out
3: Decide what to do
…the completion of which may take forever, or until you stop it, whichever comes first. Just think of the lost word-users out there trying to figure out life.
Whether a river, tree, or a single cell, the brainless do the “Stimulus, Response” without a brain.
How? We shall never know for knowledge doesn’t exist in the wordless world. This, we know from our own brainlessness back in the days when we were busy making our own.
To simplify, simply exchange the wordy’s 4-step process taught at school, for the brainless’ 2-step “Stimulus, Response” dance not taught at school. Here’s how:
1. Know what you want.
2. Write it down.
3. Tell your brain.
In other words, you’re your own school now. Should it feel new in the beginning, that is to be expected, but remember, you’re a part of nature, not separate from it.
When you begin with 1 and 2 above, and do number 3 long enough, then the unexpected happens: The world will be the same, yet one morning you wake up the owner of your own personal stimulus.
That’s right, knowing what you want will be both now, response and stimulus, at the same time.
In other words, what you want rules. You’re (back) at the steering wheel of the moments of your life.
