On Average, An Underdeveloped PFC, I Think

Love the Lobes

The brain circuitry is designed to tell you right from wrong as well as keep you alive via the vast organ systems simultaneously interacting together. The circuits of the mind connect your senses to your ability and reason to react. This makes our nervous system the power source that generates the motor (circulatory system) which then activates the machinery (cells/organs) to all work smoothly in-sync. A drunk person, dementia patient, certain forms of autism/special needs, sleep deprivation and a young child all can have somewhat similar looking brains when viewing through an FMRI machine. Blood flow is essential for healthy brain development, as is movement and multisensory learning/training tools. Depending on the activity, there is a variation of wave frequencies emitted.

A jellyfish has one of the most simplistic/unevolved nervous systems in the animal kingdom. It merely reacts as it bumps into something floating aimlessly in the abyss. It doesn’t think about food but rather bumps into it then absorbs the nutrients as needed. Some humans seem to live a similar lifestyle but their body does not react in such a manner. As the evolutionary process of life proceeds, the nervous system can think further into the future to the point of developing anxiety over things that may or may not even happen. These circuits help make you into an adult beyond the nature of a helpless child. The evolution of the Prefrontal Cortex is the greatest technology our lifeforms have created on this Earth and is one of the distinguishing factors of our overall sense of self as we can be motivated for reasons that transcend life and death. Interest and Compassion can be ulterior motives that take humanity to a better place, especially with the PFC in the front seat rather than the amygdala.

To properly analyze risk, both logic and creativity are used together to extrapolate a deeper understanding to the course of action regarding the variables at hand. Accessing the longterm memory circles as well as other lobes of the brain gives our brain the elasticity to imagine relative consequences to similar variables. Essentially, we can see ourselves in one another. We often call this truth seeking ability empathy or sympathy and is seemingly a higher level of thinking. The Prefrontal Cortex is the mom of the brain as it delegates actions of what someone needs to do.

We teeter totter on a scale of moderation and balance to allow just enough creativity into our lives that logic makes sound sense to all of our senses. This makes the artistic mind lean a little on the theoretical (crazy) side and the medical doctor to be more on the serious/factual side. Of course these generalizations are obviously incorrect in many instances, but there is some truth in acknowledging patterns that make up our ignorantly placed group identities. These basic group identities are broken down when top end obstruction and misconduct are identified. Remember that solving a crime requires quite the imagination to not to just see the evidence that exists but also the lack of evidence.

The prefrontal cortex is the part of Artificial Intelligence that computers have yet to conquer.  Humans also have yet to conquer this evolutionary development but we are still a step ahead of computers for now. Flow is something that transmutes beyond any machines capabilities acting on arguably a spiritual level.  We have the tool of neuroplasticity and communication mechanisms which means the different computing mechanisms designed in the different compartments of our brains can rebuild the structures that have once been severed or never connected. Human brains in my opinion are far superior to even supercomputers, especially on a collective scale. Machine’s hardware is limited to time and place but the human mind accumulates stories that transcend all matter and matters of this world.

Don’t fear the future, be a part of bettering it. Do what you can, when you can, where you can, how you can with whoever helps you grow.
