blue3For me the brain is yet a big mystery and it is the same for many people around the world, but research is making a lot of progress in understanding how the brain is works, Amnon my friend has demonstrate to me the power of writing and the impact it has on the brain. I read a lot about the power of imagination and the fact that for the brain handles reality and dreams in a very similar manner.

Today I talked with my friend Isaac about the phenomena of ” amplification ” that happens in the brain. For example, when we take a deep breath the brain knows that we are relaxing and amplifies it, taking advantage of the intense flow of oxygen in our blood . The same happens when we giggle and feel happy. Physical effects are amplified by our brain and therefore create a bigger effect on us.

Yet there is a long way until we will understand the effect of fear and the impact it has on our lives, of the impact of being sad or worried and the how the brain amplifies these feelings, sometimes to the point of panic or depression.

Therefore optimism is such a strong tool which we can use to positively bias our brain and help amplify good things that we want to have in our lives or reach, or even impact the way we handle challenging or demanding tasks. Because after all, the brain is made up of huge populations of networked neurons which are competing for dominance, and if we let the positive side take over, we will surly see the impact across everything we think and do.
