It is widely believed we use only ten percent of the brain and think only one
thought at a time. Nothing could be further from the truth. The brain is
always "on the air" processing many facets dynamic, transitional and relational
signal transfer all of the time. It has hair-trigger sensitivity and is
continually firing off signal sequences in response to the flood of messages
from both within and outside the system. Even at rest, the brain is like a
boiling cauldron of many separate yet associated facets of signal transfer
induced consciousness. There is always much more going on than meets the eye.
We "consciously" experience only those aspects of thought breaking the surface
of the cauldron thereby making it into overt awareness. These ideas emerge most
directly from our language based association networks. What most people think
of as consciousness is just the surface layer of a vast deeply textured highly
interactive signal transfer process. The language based veneer of consciousness
is the story we tell ourselves about ourselves. It is what most people think of
as reality, but reality is much more than language based processing......
