How does the mind work?
Posted 15 October 2006 - 12:12 PM
Think about this time.
Now think about what your favorite thing to do after you wake up. Weather it be a few new episodes of anime, a warm shower, or perhaps a bowl of cereal.
Think about your favorite thing to do in the morning.
Now think about what you really do in the morning.
-Are you even waking up.
-Is it still morning.
-Why do i have to go to work?
I found that when I go to bed early and watch those few extra episodes in the morning in the sunshine I have a generally terrific day, but when I sleep in and wake up in the afternoon i have a fairly depressing day =(
What time do you like to wake up or go to bed? do you have a set schedule?

And my favourite morning ritual is making coffee. That usually wakes me up. I hate to be woken up by the alarm clock, so I am almost always awake 10 minutes before it goes off.
When I still lived at my parents place, I used to wake up to the sounds of the coffee maschine in the morning. My mom in the kitchen fixing breakfast for us and the sounds of the coffee machine slurping water was a very nice way to wake up. I miss that time sooooo much, especially in the winter!!! There is nothing worse than to wake up in winter, outside still dark, the kitchen cold and desserted. I wish my mom would make breakfast for me for the rest of my life!!! Golden age of childhood!

When I wake up...
I like to lay in bed and just think for about 1/2 an hour. Its the only way I seem to be able to satisfactorily wake myself up. I always have one really random thought too. This morning's was: "Today I need to save the world." I don't know why, I just randomly thought it. Another favorite was: "Worst case scenario, I miss work. Best case scenario, I get a parade." No idea what it means, but it was the first thing I thought that morning.

|When you wake up in the morning to the terrible beeping of the nearby alarm clock,|
The first thing you should do is get rid of that alarm clock. If they sack you for sleeping in, well it was probably a crap job anyway. Opt out of the rat race and be happy.
There's an old saying, "Remember, even if you win the rat raceâ€”you're still a rat."

"Lots of people people soak up information like a spounge soaks up water."
"People's minds are like a spounge: they suck information up, then squeeze them out."
But other than that, people just come and go on info, without the thought of processing it. Not, that i'm right or anything

This happens to me on a smaller scale with music too. When I had a hard time in my life, because I was going through some serious trouble and back then I listened to radio and heard the chart songs....... some years later I hear that song again and it instantly brings back the feeling from that time. It is like time traveling machine... for a split of a second I feel transported couple of years back into the past, I feel the same like I did back then....... really weird!!!

|Well, I'm doing a research project on that subject in Psychology over here in university. Problem is that we know so much about our senses (inputs) but we don't know much about the central bit which puts them together and evokes memories... The aim of my project is to try and decipher that... Hope the experiment design works though...|
Is your project aiming at building a model of some of the functionnalities of the brain? Like something using a neural network or another modelling technique to try to understand the human brain? If so I do see some very interesting problems ahead of you but also some facinating possibilities.

Anyway, I don't wake up to an alarm. I wake up when I wake up. I set my biological clock to a certain time and I go to sleep knowing what time I go to bed and thinking what time I want to get up. I always wake up before the time I need to be somewhere though the discrepancy is anywhere between 10-15 mins to a full hour before time. :3 The first thought that comes to mind is "Am I awake or did I wake up in a dream thinking I'm awake?" Once it's confirmed that I'm in reality, I'm generally pretty cheerful about stuff.
If I stay up reaaaal late like until 6am I'm a grouch when I wake up in the afternoon, but if I go to sleep around 11 at night I am generally pleasant when I wake up.

anyway there are 3 parts of the mind. the ID, the EGO, and the SUPEREGO.
the ID it the part of your mind that just wants. this part of your mind that won't let you get up early in the morning when your alarm is sounding, because you just want too sleep in... it is also responsible for sexual drive.
the EGO, is the "down to earth" part of your mind. this part of your mind tells you to wake up in the morning because you have to go to work, or school. if this part of your mind took total control of you mind, then you would be a boring, depress(ing)(ed) person.
the SUPEREGO, is the "reasoning" part of your mind. the balance between the ID, and the EGO. this is the part of your mind that says, that you'll sleep for 5 more minutes, but will wake up after that.

My definition of "now"
Now is that little voice in your head that's telling you now is now but it's really now past 1 minute in reality but now is not now right now so now will come a little after later then a little before after at a time period now at the end of the day where now is consistent with your mind at a moment where now is now but still not truly now.

This misconception most likely arose from a misunderstanding (or misrepresentation in an advertisement lol) of neurological research in the late 1800s or early 1900s when researchers either discovered that only about 10% of the neurons in the brain are firing at any given time or announced that they had only mapped the functions of 10% of the brain up to that time.
If all of a person's neurons began firing at once he would not become smarter, but would instead suffer a seizure.
So, its a good thing we don't overuse our brains...
