    [ DB - 13 December 2018 ] Self

    Self

    Identity is a funny thing. We think we know who we are because there is a sense of self behind our eyes watching the world and us in it. This narrative is created by the brain stringing events together and editing them in a timeline so they make sense to us. Making sense is important because it is what we use to predict "what's going to happen next" and get out of bed each morning without being paralyzed by fear of the unknown.

    The important thing here however is "editing". Because the brain chooses what to splice together based upon our understanding, awareness, knowledge, experience and expectations our sense of self is a construct. This is an opportunity. It means we can consciously guide who we become. We do not have to feel trapped in the sense of self we have right now or the identity that was given to us. In a way every superhero story, unwittingly perhaps, tapped into this concept which only now neuroscience has shown to be real by revealing some of the mechanism behind it.

    Choose who you really want to be, one tiny step at a time. One tiny decision at a time. Every single day.

      We make our choice every day. I choose to be better than I was the day before.
