MAKING HISTORY – The Obama “Brain Initiative”

Recently, a friend reminded me of something that Einstein said, it was – “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is the faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift”. Intuitive intelligence is the crowning glory of our human potential. History will show that the most important movement, the most significant piece of legislature ever put forth by a world leader will have been the Brain Initiative. You may really like, or really dislike President Obama, you may have voted for him or voted for the other guy. In the long run, what will really matter to history? History will forget the health care program, or the financial bailouts and even the war on terror – WHY? Because the success of compassionate-optimistic human brain development will solve and resolve all of those challenges anyway. HUMAN PROGRESS is a matter of Human Development, and Human Development IS Human BRAIN Development. But the most important thing to remember in this effort – and the key for the success of the BRAIN INITIATIVE – is to realize that Human Brain Development is CHILD BRAIN DEVELOPMENT. If we are to follow Einstein’s advice, then we would realize that Intuitive Intelligence Development would be the best motto that the Brain Initiative could adopt. The “marriage” between Neuroscience and Nanoscience is going to be a profound relationship. However, mapping and tracking the connections between neurons, synapses, neurotransmitters, dendrites, axons, gliel cells and enforcing a harmonious truce between the limbic system and the frontal lobe of the brain – tying all of that together to get a whole picture of the brain’s interconnecting processes – well, that is going to require taking an intuitive leap. The most impressive aspects, prospects and processes of intuitive intelligence depend on the intuitive learning properties of early cognitive development. The time has come to realize that the substantial operations of intuitive intelligence are established as a cognitive process of early brain development. The magic of intuitive intelligence has been kept alluringly alive for thousands of years because of its mystical and mysterious characteristics, and that will be something it never loses, but it’s also time to understand the mechanics of intuitive intelligence and nothing is more synonymous with intuitive intelligence development than the preschool stage of cognitive development. Preschool teachers are in the position to help make history – be active, be proud, be intuitive.
