2. the power of the mind

Marilyn vos Savant, the person with the highest IQ ever

Not even neurologists can exactly estimate the capacity of the human brain nor decide whose brain has greater potential. One thing is sure. You can be smarter tomorrow than you are today. The mind can stretch – it can be strengthened, toned, and conditioned to perform miracles.

(Robert K. Cooper, 2006.)

The whole structure of the brain can be changed just by thinking – this phenomena is called neuroplasticity.

(Gordon Dryden, Jeannette Vos, 1999.)

Your Miracle Brain:
Consists of a billion brain cells, including:


100 billion active nerve cells
900 billion other cells which stick together, nourish and isolate the active cells
Can develop up to 20 thousand branches with 100 billion nerve cells per each of them


Consists of four separate brains:
the part responsible for your instincts
the part responsible for your balance
the part responsible for your emotions
the cerebral cortex


It consists two separate, harmoniously cooperating hemispheres:
the left one (scientific)
the right one (creative)


It runs a switchboard which transfers billions of information between the left and the right hemisphere every second
Has seven different intelligence centers
Functions on four different wavelengths
Is the key to your personal revolution in learning


We learn:
10% of what we read
20% of what we hear
30% of what we see
50% of what we see and hear
70% of what we say
90% of what we say and do

(Robert K. Cooper, 2006.)

Use your brains, all four of them:


  • The brain in the head
  • The brain in the gut
    There is around 100 billion neurons in it. The enteric nervous system is far faster than the brain the head; according to some estimations even a million times faster.
  • The brain the heart
    The electromagnetic field of the heart is approximately 5 thousand times stronger than the field generated by the brain.
  • The brain in the back (?)
