Why didn’t school inform us that Neurons were like Legos?
Nobody ever presented Neurons as these things that make up our brain that, we could connect together and build incredible things out of?
Things like memories, understanding, adaptive expertise, problem -solving.
No. They pointed to this brain, made us memorize goofy names of things we’d forget about the next day or after the next test.
How would your life be better if you could build understanding of things like Legos?
Just like Lego blocks, neurons can be combined in a variety of ways to create complex functions.
For example, neurons can be combined to create circuits that allow us to see, hear, and move. They can also be combined to create circuits that allow us to learn and remember.
“Can be” is always stated, but you’re thinking, “That’s cool. But how do I do it? I wanna do it!”
You are halfway there by even thinking this way!
You have now started connecting neurons around the thought, “Neurons are like Legos?”
That starts your brain doing all kinds of crazy things relating to Legos, and how you can learn knew things by snapping neurons together.
When you here somebody saying they ‘learned this new skill’ or ‘I didn’t know that!’ – which means they just learned “that” – you’ll be thinking, “Those neurons are just slapping together now!”
Then you’ll want to learn how to do it with all your communications, just slap neurons together, and live happily ever after knowing what you are putting out there is getting picked up on by everybody.
Being Brain-centric develops intelligence, not artificial intelligence.
Intelligence is the ability of a system to learn, adapt, and solve problems in a way that is analogous to the human brain.
Your brain is your system. Your choice.
