The ”Infinte Zone” of Consciousness  and Human Evolution. An Indeterminist Neuroscientist Vision

Just imagine opening a door to a whole new world, a door to a new mindset, and when that door is opened our existence will become full of possibilities and the chance to learn. 

When exploring these opportunities we can evolve and grow without the limits of our limiting beliefs.

This can spark our inspirational desires that lead us to the conclusion that life itself has no mental boundaries. When we realise the mental limits disappear, we can then live with freedom, dare to dream, evolve as beings while we awaken our soul toward the infinite. Having no mental boundaries means our life can become limitless. Knowledge can open that door, but first we must be willing to consider the possibility to evolve our mindset.

Our consciousness resides at the center of our awareness which is a potential ”infinite zone” where inner meets outer, spirit meets matter, and the thoughts of our infinite inner reality interact with the infinity of “external” reality.

The Evolution of Human Being Beyond the Investigable Matter: ”The Infinity Zone”

”The brain and its satellite glands have now been probed to the point where no particular site remains that can reasonably be supposed to harbor a nonphysical mind.” Sociobiologist Edward O. Wilson

Time often seems to stand still, and usually we experience ourselves as being the same today as we were yesterday. As many have said before, all this is an illusion. The earth continues to rotate around the sun whether we are aware of it or not. Likewise, the billions of neurons and the trillions of connections between them in each of our brains keep changing with every experience, even when we sleep. 

We are in a state of constant change that can happen by choice or will happen by chance. We are evolving in every moment with the chemistry of each sound, sight, thought, and emotion that passes through the brain. 

Thanks to neuroscience, we have a new consciousness about our inner dynamics. 

And as we begin to understand our dynamic nature and the movement of chemistry that never ceases, our glimpse the importance of being conscious and making choices. Change is inevitable. The only question is whether you are going to have something to say about it.

In the later decades of the twentieth century, evolutionary psychology exploded as scientists from many disciplines attempted to tackle the fundamental questions about human nature and the human mind by beginning with a startlingly simple proposition: the higher-primate brain (that is, the human and ape brain) comprises many functional mechanisms, called psychological adaptations or evolved psychological mechanisms, that evolved by natural selection to benefit the survival of the organism

People had got used to the determinism of the last century, where the present determines the future completely, and they now have to get used to a different situation in which the present only gives one information of a statistical nature about the future. A good many people find this unpleasant… 

”I must say that I also do not like indeterminism. I have to accept it because it is certainly the best that we can do with our present knowledge. One can always hope that there will be future developments which will lead to a drastically different theory.” Quantum theorist Paul Dirac

For many years, neuroscientists believed that the adult human brain was essentially finished. It did not and could not change, any more than a billiard ball could, and individual neurons did not regenerate. According to the classical view, in such a fixed system certain mental programs were simply run over and over. Individual decisions did not affect the functioning of the system, but were rather a delusion created  by the functioning of the system.

 In recent years, however, neuroscientists have discovered that the adult brain is actually very plastic. As we will see, if neural circuits receive a great deal of traffic, they will grow. If they receive little traffic, they will remain the same or shrink. The amount of traffic our neural circuits receive depends, for the most part, on what we choose to pay attention to. Not only can we make decisions by focusing on one idea rather than another, but we can change the patterns of neurons in our brains by doing so consistently. 

An open-minded neuroscience can significantly contribute to a model of mind (that is not a delusion) and tell us some important facts about Human Evolution, Consciousness, Awareness till spiritual mystical experiences. 

Each choice we make creates a focus for the brain and guides neurons to talk to each other, creating new connections or reinforcing old ones. When we realize that someone’s criticism of us comes from that person’s own fear or insecurity, and we actually make the choice to feel some compassion for those who have hurt us a daily spiritual practice for nuns and monks we have connected the dots of insight and perspective for a greater objectivity the next time something like that happens. 

If we keep thinking such thoughts, we actually reduce our own suffering by cultivating different emotional reactions that will then automatically come from life’s events.

With an awakened brain, we have also the potential to train your own brain to achieve experiences we desire. But this is not an uncommon experience, it is happening all the time if our will muscle is active of not.

The concept of a conscious mind around it’s unlimited potentials can allows us to be more selective into the choice of our knowledge and our interests and to use our human brain machine (such as it was a computer) and the our human potential for continuously reaching elevated states of consciousness. 

In other words we could start to owe an ”awakened” Brain.

The term “awakened” usually refers to spiritually transcendent and peak experiences. Awakened is a word often used for mystics and the enlightened. 

But in its essence, ”awakened” is the capacity for a continued evolution that is virtually limitless. The brain is constantly adapting and changing in its physical structure and chemical makeup in order to process the experience with which it is presented and to Trasform in order to face new experience in a near-far future on our lifetime.
