The brain is never silent.The majority of the activity in the brain is NOT about responding to external stimuli but rather about internal "housekeeping". This activity teeters back and forth from the very edge of Chaos into purposeful Order in the twinkling of an eye. Swarms of pulsating waves wash across and within the brain at all times. The frequencies are not simple beats but in families and chords more like music. The brain uses special shortcuts between Chaos and Order. These "shortcuts" are called Resting State Networks (RSN). When called upon they jump immediately into action converting high possibility states of Chaos into high probability states of Order...with the result of Certain action.
Possible > Probable > CertainWhen not "doing their thing", they shift back into their "Resting State" (hence their name). When "resting" they are not idle. They are constantly "tuning" and recalibrating" themselves so as to be ready, willing and able to instantly "do their thing". Very elegant stuff. The name for this new appreciation of the brain is called Connectome Harmonics. Turns out the brain is a lot more like the Internet than being just a simple computer. (How analogies change!!) You will recall the Human Genome. "Genome" is the term for the complete DNA mapping of a creature. The Human Genome Project succeeded in creating that coding based on the famous four protein sequence and the double helix. A few years ago, NIH USA initiated the Human Connectome Project in an attempt to map all of the networking connections within the human brain. The field is called Connectome Harmonics because all the myriad connections are activated with frequencies - not single frequencies but "frequency harmonics". In our brain there are some major Resting State Networks to activate principle processes from Chaos into Order on demand. Using the native Frequency Harmonics of these principle networks, I have created a set of Network Reinforcements found in the Brain Gym section of the Neuro Light. In TheNeuroLight.com website you can find Learning materials describing them in detail. Here is a SUPER BRIEF example of how they can be used:
- Default Mode Network - use for people that can't "turn IT OFF";
- Cognitive Control Network - use for people that can't "turn IT ON";
- Limbic Network - use for people with a (possibly secret) negative or resistant attitude having suffered in their life;
- Dorsal Attention Network - use for people that can't focus;
- Ventral Attention Network - use for people that are stuck and can't open up their view;
- Visual Network - use for people that can't integrate vision externally or internally in their "mind's eye";
- Somato-motor Network - use for people needing to connect Mind and Body.
