Question Everything

“Did you know your senses bombard your brain with so much data at any one time (about 10 million bits of information per second) that, in order to maintain your sanity you only process a very small fraction of the incoming data (about 40 bits per second)? What your brain accesses is dictated by filters that are combinations of your values and beliefs and your memories.
To take it a step father your memories are so influenced by your values and beliefs that over ninety percent of the memories you hold in your head are inaccurate. Yes you heard me right. Those memories that you have floating around in your head of past events, you are not “seeing” them how they really happened. If you were to compare your memories to actual videos of the real events, you would find yourself in a state of shock.
We don’t see things the way they are, we see things the way WE are.
We all respond to our own unique map of the world that we hold in our head. Many times the maps of others do not make sense to us. Here is where a little bit of understanding and tolerance could help enrich our lives.
Now let’s get even deeper. Many of our thoughts are not our own. Most of our beliefs were given to us by our family and culture. Until we are about seven our minds soak up so much information without using a filter to determine what is right and wrong. We are literally programmed by our environment.
Defining ourselves as opposed to being defined by others is one of the most difficult challenges we face. And until we are true to ourselves we are never really living. Too often we remain in a comfort zone and deny ourselves and the world our full potential.
Please don’t try and conform the world to your beliefs. We need to be different.”
