Are Mental Limits Real?
You have far more brainpower, and far fewer mental limits than you can even begin to imagine.
Trying to define our brain’s ultimate capacity is like trying to place your finger on a globule of mercury. The human brain is infinitely complex and subtle. And your amazing brain is no exception!
Physicists have discovered parallels between the human brain and Einstein’s quantum universe. Biological scientists are demystifying the brain’s chemical and electrical mysteries, and cutting-edge scientists like Bruce Lipton are now telling us that a thought alone has the power to control how our genes express.
Cutting edge scientists specializing in the “connective tissue” that holds our body together have discovered something else amazing. The connective tissue tubules that extend into each of our individual cells respond to vibration. And this includes the vibration created by each of your thoughts, which impact these tubules even faster than the messages traveling along your nervous system.
So What ARE Our Mental Limits?
It was once estimated we use about 10% of our mental potential. Many of today’s neuroscientists have dropped that estimate to less than one percent. And even that figure could be overly optimistic,. Our mental limits are actually limitless.
Your brain contains 1,000,000,000,000 individual nerve cells (neurons) — so many that if they were stretched end to end, they would reach all the way to the moon and back! But this figure is even more astounding when you consider that each nerve cell can connect with as many as 100,000 other nerve cells.
If we add up the potential capacity of your brain cells to make interconnections — the resulting number itself would be at least 10.5 million kilometers long.
Mental limits? So you see, it’s probably not a surprise we are generally not capable of putting all of this raw potential to work! Our brains are virtually limitless.
I have long personally thought that our brain is more of a sending-receiving station that is connected to the one great mind. And now, modern Field Theory tells us we are each one node on an energetic network that stretches out to infinity. That we are not separate at all — but are all interconnected to the one great source of energy that expresses itself as consciousness.
How Far Do Our Mental Limits Extend?
OK then, so what is a thought? It’s basically energy that causes an electro-chemical response in your brain. The net result is that your brain’s neurons will then “fire” in a certain pattern.
That produces tiny currents of electrical energy that pass along definite pathways in your cortex (your thinking cap). These currents can be traced as “brainwaves” by attaching electrodes to your skull and attaching the electrodes to an EEG.
So… your thought cascaded through your brain and produced an actual 70 millivolt potential somewhere in your cortex. (Your brain actually produces between 5 and 10 volts of energy – enough to light up the inside of a refrigerator.)
The electrical current produced by your thought is then broadcast in the form of electromagnetic waves at the velocity of light out to each of your cells — and also straight out into the cosmos of which we are each directly connected traveling at the speed of light. So what does THAT say about your mental limits?
What IS a Thought?
Have you ever tried to define what a thought is, and how a thought gets started to begin with? What causes that initial spark that leads to that amazing cascade of energy through our brains?
Philosophers have sought an answer to that question for centuries. Some modern thinkers, like the great psychoanalyst Carl Jung and the brilliant Itzhak Bentov, feel that since thoughts create measurable energy, and energy can be neither created nor destroyed, the universal cosmos must contain the energy of every thought that has ever occurred. Again, this challenges the concept of having any mental limits at all!
This could explain how people like Bentov, Edgar Cayce, and even Leonardo da Vinci were able to see clearly see into alternate realities most of us seem unable to tap into.
A SPECIAL Invitation
This much IS true: There are definitely those who are capable of thinking on much higher levels than our everyday “what shall I have for lunch” levels. They reach into “higher states of consciousness” to direct their lives.
I have personally been blessed to have the opportunity to study with several such people. These experiences have had a tremendous impact on my life. As a result, my personal passion, and the core of my teaching, is focused on achieving higher states of consciousness.
