the 10% of your brain thing is a myth, we use 100% of our brains. i would say we only utilize a tiny fraction of our potential as human beings. sorry lol it just bothers me.
In this world it’s hard to tell what is actually myth and what is illusion being kept hidden from the general populace. Our society is built to constrain our thinking, have poor uneducated systems, a land built on subjugation, money, power and dominion. most science and psychology is very biased because even they don’t know what is fully going on within the subconscious. Yes our brain power is active and we use a lot of our brain but you have to think in terms that go beyond modern science because modern science is build around many holes and hypothesizes. For instance this article that tries to persuade people against the myth, they also talk how it’s impossible to develop intuitive abilities which has also been studied that is directly connected to higher consciousness and your pineal gland. so you have two different worlds right here. For instance “The argument that psychic powers come from the unused majority of the brain is based on the logical fallacy of the argument from ignorance. In this fallacy, lack of proof for a position (or simply lack of information) is used to try to support a particular claim. Even if it were true that the vast majority of the human mind is unused (which it clearly is not), that fact in no way implies that any extra capacity could somehow give people paranormal powers.” http://www.dreamviews.com/f19/we-only-use-10%25-our-brains-7058/
The Pineal Gland: ”consciousness interfaces with the thinking process. So the question really is about how this interface of material mind and spiritual consciousness happens. If we can understand how consciousness interprets our thinking self then hopefully we can reverse the process and become aware of our consciousness – our true self. That is enlightenment.
As usual, in the process of doing research about the pineal gland, some amazing facts were revealed. Not only does this incredibly small gland seem to be associated with psi activity and paranormal abilities, but it is extremely vulnerable to the environment in ways that reveal our apparent materialism and pandemic depression.“
So yes we all actively use our brain but our human potentiality is not using 100% of our consciousness and subconscious mind. Just look around you we’re definitely not using 100% of our human potentiality. If we did we’d be antimatter, able to transcend time/space and move like quantum mechanics by teleportation 🙂
So if we change perspectives here we have to question what is actually the myth here? the fact that we are uneducated about our subconscious or the fact that society has hidden some of the most important consciousness facts of our souls from human history?
This all goes back to ego vs. soul thinking
your mind operates through consciousness and is imbalanced with the ego world of past/future illusion. Your soul resides in subconscious eternal world of present thinking where you are master of multidimensional reality. The subconscious is the world you enter when taking drugs, alcohol, the power of silence,meditation, yoga, etc.
“Until you make the unconscious conscious,
it will direct your life and you will call it fate” ~ Carl Jung
Our mind is a complex mechanism that records, stores and processes huge amounts of information every single day of our lives. Where does all this information go? We certainly do not remember each and every thing that passes us by and yet most of us are able to recall the minutest of details if required. The human mind is divided into conscious and the subconscious minds – the conscious mind is the active memory where details related to our day to day lives are stored and the total subconscious mind deals with long term memory.
“The conscious mind may be compared to a fountain playing in the sun and falling back into the great subterranean pool of subconscious from which it rises.” ~ Sigmund Freud
Subconscious comprises of 90% of the human mind, where as the conscious mind is only 10% . Therefore, the right brain subconscious is more powerful than the conscious mind, which has all the logic, thinking and intellect. The right brain subconscious has no logic or intellect. It function on the basis of instinct and whatever beliefs and ideas that have seeped in subconscious. It does not have the capacity to distinguish between right and wrong or acceptable and unacceptable behavior or thought. Due to this lack of judgment, if a belief becomes deep-seated in the right brain subconscious, it is very difficult to convince a person to believe otherwise.
“Traditions are the guideposts driven deep in our subconscious minds. The most powerful ones are those we can’t even describe, aren’t even aware of.”~ Ellen Goodman
The Subconscious carries within itself eternal memory – everything that the human race has gone though over billions of years is believed to be stored under the deep, dark folds of the subconscious. It will be difficult for people to carry on their daily lives if they had to carry the burden of memories of millions of years. Therefore, all these ancient memories remain forgotten and buried and surface only when need arises.
The right brain subconscious mind is where all everything is neatly filed and stored and can be accessed or rather recalled anytime. However, this is not our active memory, which is why, usually a trigger is required to invoke any memory or detail. This function is just like a computer’s memory – in order to access any file where a particular data is stored, you must know the file name to choose, open and then access the data stored there. Similarly, the subconscious mind suddenly flashes certain memories that got triggered through some event. This what is known as ’jogging the memory’.(aka mind triggers of archetypals figures via numerology, symbols, words, etc.)
For example, you may be in a bookstore and suddenly a particular book cover reminds you of a kindergarten schoolmate. The memory of this schoolmate was probably triggered because the shade of purple used on the book cover is exactly of the same shade that this classmate used to wear.
If is a baser side to consciousness, known as subconsciousness, then why should there not be a superconscious? The superconscious is complete consciousness, without any divides. It is aligned with the cosmos and on this level both intellect and instinct merge to become intuition – ’the inner tutor’. At this stage, the conscious is one with the universe and all duality is non-existent and there is a sense of completeness.
Universal Mind, Universal Consciousness and Collective Consciousness are all name given to the phenomenon of becoming identified with the ineffable Source from we have come. The Source and the Being do not remain as two different entities but resonate with the same superconsciouness.
I hope this helps explain what i technically mean much clearer
