Understanding Brain:Who are you?

There are two entities governing human being. The body, nervous system and subconscious brain makes the First entity. Other is conscious mind or our thinking brain which we will call the second entity. Let us try to understand this by below example:

No one wants to have any kind of pain but yet when we we have an injury, we feel pain. If our Conscious brain (which is actually me), is an autonomous body having full control then why we cannot stop our own pain? Why we can’t stop our own tears when we want to hide our emotions? Why we feel hungry when we already accumulate enough fat and want to reduce it to be in good shape?

Above questions and many more such questions suggest that Conscious brain is not autonomous body. We are not fully in charge of functioning of our body. Our subconscious (The first entity) brain has predefined program to function . This program is encoded in our DNA and executed by our subconscious or unconscious mind. We receive this pre-defined program from our parent’s gene. The program not only regulates our growth, appearance and our ageing but also define standard procedure of operation in case of any instant threat to our body. A simple paper cut in our hand starts several operations within a second to mend it. At the same time a signal is sent to our brain to create a sensation of pain so that we can react externally. If there is no pain, we might not take any action to stop bleeding as it might remain unnoticed. So pain is a mechanism through which our sub-conscious brain communicates with conscious mind.

As we cannot talk to a microprocessor or computer directly, in the same way we cannot talk to our body or subconscious brain directly. We need programming language to instruct it. Right now we do not have any such program, programming skills or programming language to directly instruct our subconcious brain to take action according to our choice like- utilizing accumulated fat in our belly for energy requirement instead for carving for food or stopping any abnormal cell growth which can cause tumor.

All our internal process occurs without our notice leaving our conscious mind free to think and focus on worldly affairs. If our conscious mind will be made responsible of all internal functions then we will not be able to focus on any external things. We will become self-absorbed. Our conscious brain can do just one function at a time.

Your unconscious (Or subconscious brain) has amazing processing capabilities compared with the conscious mind. Research shows the unconscious mind absorbs millions of bits of sensory information through the nervous system in any one second. Given the name ‘unconscious mind’ you will not be aware of a lot of the processes that the unconscious mind engages in. The research also shows that our subconscious brain understands images and pictures. So meditation and visualising image of positive things can generate positive result.

What is Sustainable Society

When things are progressing well in our life, we do not realise any need of support and help from any one. Unfortunately, such pleasant phases do not last longer for most of us. When some unfortunate, unpleasant and unplanned thing occurs in our life, we look all around for helping hand and shoulder to lean on. But we hardly find any real help at that time, because in our good time we never care about others. Thus in our bad time, no one care about us. As a social animal, we all are dependent, (on each other), thus we must help and care for others at all time. So that when bad time comes we find many helping hands and support in the form of friends and family. To create such a community, we need what is defined below as Sustainable society. Our future and future of coming generation depends on how sensibly we use our natural resources, ecosystem and our environment. Our development should not be at cost of our future. Hence we need sustainability in all walks of our life. This total sustainability can only be guaranteed by a Sustainable society.

SUSTAINABLE SOCIETY (SS) (def. “Society that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”) refers to a community in which everyone is either self-sufficient or taken care by those who are already self-sufficient and can generate enough resources to function without any interruption. In such society everyone is well informed about his/her duties towards nature and society. It focuses on overall development of human society based on sharing and caring. Society will support everyone till they become self-sufficient. SS creates a delicate balance between development and conserving our Environment for long term sustainability of human civilisation.

Society will be responsible for providing for children, women without income, disable and old aged retired peoples who are not in condition to do any work. Not just money but kind words, care, safety, shelter, work and means for happy living are provided. Work will be distributed according to the ability and interest. There are no owners in Sustainable society. Everyone is a worker earning according to his/her capacity and contributing back to society. Everything will be done in a planned way keeping future in mind.

A family, not the individual is the smallest unit of society. So SS promote the idea of family-nuclear or extended depending on personal choice. A management comprising of educated intellectuals will run the society.
