DID EINSTEIN REVEAL THE FORMULA OF HIS GENIUS – OR DID HE TAKE HIS

SECRET TO THE GRAVE? HINT, HINT ~ EINSTEIN CLEARLY DECLARED THAT:

INTUITION IS EVERYTHING”…

Which is how Einstein understood why things that seem separate or disconnected, are in fact connected – and connectivity is essentially, the most fundamental trait of Intuition. This is how Einstein was able to decipher and devise the grand General and Special Theories of Relativity. These theories opened up the worlds of Quantum Mechanics, which paved the way for String Theory and the more distinct fields of Astro-Biology & Particle-Physics. And by the definitions of e = mc2 — all of these fields are interconnected.  But, what’s most telling about these connections, is that our own unrequited inquiries into these fields of knowledge, makes them relative and essential to the development of our own human brains and unequivocally, our human Intuitions – which should help us connect everything we know, in addition to expediting what we still crave knowing about the universe, and our purpose in it. Okay, so that’s a mouthful – – or more like a mind-full. 

The question to present to all questions of knowledge is:  Are we connecting, or intuiting everything we need to know?  We might also ask if we are doing enough to emulate the genius of Einstein?!!  Particularly because, according to Einstein, we ought to be using our intuitions for everything, since “Intuition is everything”. Let’s explore and connect some factors about developing genius mindsets that, at least, imitate the intuitive genius of Einstein.  To start with, each of us possesses an intuition, as well as unique abilities  that are endowed by the genius of Nature, along with its universal partnership and original source of knowledge  — (i.e., the laws and language of the universe).

But first, it’s time to clear up a few distasteful narratives. Let’s be anything but opaque here. Einstein never said ‘consciousness is everything’, or that ‘arithmetic is everything’, he stated that, “intuition is everything”. Any scientific experts will humbly admit that there is little consensus among them to settle any descriptive agreement regarding “consciousness”, and for all their ramblings about Einstein’s intuitive genius, they rarely encourage open forums to discuss “intuition”. With all due respect to Nobel Prize laureates, such as Eugene Wigmore, who pondered on and on about Schrödinger’s cat and the traits of consciousness in determining the condition of the cat, in conjunction with the deliberate act of observation; for all the endless books and airy fairy discussions about “consciousness”, exactly what has “consciousness” done to resolve coherency in any information systems or solve any world problems? None! However, in all fairness, the one thing that consciousness does perform for us is its absence under the influence of anesthesia.

Well, that having been said, it’s connectivity time, i.e., defining the authentic traits of intuition:

Intuition is everything”. Children learn language intuitively; they never do it “consciously”. We use language for everything. Intuition is the universe’s naturally free internet service, interconnecting everything, and connecting us to every dimension of knowledge and information – if only we’d all become connected to our own genuine intuitions. Early intuitive language development is a necessary requirement for cognitive development. For instance, you should be able to learn another (bunch of) language(s) intuitively at a later stage in life because you’d originally learned a language intuitively during the foundational stages of cognition. But had you missed the opportunity to learn any speech and language skills intuitively at a very young age, you would be unable to learn language proficiently in the latter stages of life, including your “mother tongue”. One of the other most practical traits of intuition is the ability of transferring, and/or transposing information from one system of knowledge to another. Bottom line is, language is used for everything so everything you learn ought to be cohesively interconnected.

So, can we now begin to see how important it is to establish a theory of relativity between intuition, cognition, and language, which altogether, formulate the basic connecting computations for achieving “intuitive genius”? Benjamin Franklin – another genius – proposed the concept “become a jack of all trades and a master of one”. Unfortunately, a great many people are unaware of this original statement because we unconsciously follow the contorted pop trend non-genius version of describing someone as a ‘jack of all trades and a master of none’. Okay, enough digression.

What kind of mind is needed to define whether the following anecdote is idiocy or conspiracy? If intuition is everything, as Einstein declared, why do we keep disregarding this guidance if we are so bent on emulating his brilliant genius? Computer Scientists are confidently determined to make computers more intuitive. By the way, it is noteworthy to acknowledge that if computer scientists want to develop more intuitive computers, then they need to start working with the traits of intuition rather than fooling themselves into believing that intuitive-A.I. for computers can be coded on the traits and features of memory. Intuition is far superior to memory and even bypasses the mechanics of memory, just as we do for our general everyday language skills. For all of their exquisite coding efforts, they still need to become proficient in Intuition 101. Still waiting to see that happen!

Every field of knowledge is equally interchangeable with “Math”. Everything is built upon the fundamental principles of mathematics, or the language of the universe as defined by Physics – and these basic mathematical laws are what interconnect everything. That simply means that the mechanics of intuition are hiding in plain sight – everywhere. This should also mean that Physicists ought to discuss intuition more than they dabble with Arithmetic. But such is the literal meaning of cognitive dissonance and counter-intuitive thought processing that defines the limited range, or percentage of mind-brain potential that we’ve staggered around upon for thousands of years. It certainly defines how, unbeknownst to most folks, “Arithmetic” has never been a synonym for “Math”. “Everything” has never been all about the Arithmetic, but everything is all about the Math.

The variables required for equating human genius include the explicit connections between Language, Cognition, Intuition, The Fundamental Principles of Math, and Natural Science. All of these functions must be cultivated in accordance with the human brain’s hard wired capacity for Compassion, Optimism, Creativity and Decision-making – these are the properties that generate and incorporate intuitive genius and full human brain potential. A little margin note is in order here ~ let’s remove one concerning factor: ‘Evil Geniuses’ need never apply, meaning that true human genius can only be built on the elements of compassion and optimism. The human brain has never been equally hard-wired for good and evil, this is an historical falsehood. It also means that we can depart from the wasteful time consuming effort of trying to artificially affix morality and ethics into the ambiguous properties of “consciousness” – which as mentioned, is only worthy as when it’s absent under anesthesia.

So, here is the disconnecting tale wherein either idiocy, or conspiracy has been misguiding the process and progress of human intuitive intelligence – but it is a fate that can still be recovered, especially during the cross-roads of human civilization and globalization that we are currently engaged in.

More than a half century after Einstein’s final residency in Princeton, and after having adamantly proclaimed that “Intuition is Everything”, how is it that none of the grand universities on the planet, including Princeton itself, has missed conceiving of an MBA, or Ph.d program offering a credentialed degree in Intuitive Intelligence and how it is relative to everything. It seems so surreally discombobulating.

Going back about 20 years, a national early education board was at the height of mandating that all Early Educators must omit the specific negations no, not, don’t, can’t and shouldn’t for all teaching techniques, guidance skills and all functions of young children’s cognitive development. This issue was neglected by most Early Educators, and this widespread non-compliance, forced the board to discontinue issuing the mandate and its significance. Meanwhile, for all Neuro-science had uncovered about how the young human brain was unable to process, or hypothesize the literal inversion of a devalued verb by a negation, especially considering that verbs are the main part of speech in any language, the mandate’s significance still died without a tear shed. Notwithstanding that death, never did a single memorial arise in a published form, by an accredited MBA or Ph.d candidate documenting the connections between language, cognition and intuition. And what, with our relentless pursuits about the retentions and losses of “memory”? The point is that it is unnecessary to consciously remember everything. Intuition gives us the ability to recollect anything we’d ever need to know, because with intuition, everything we’d ever learned would be connected somehow, and transferable within our human neuro-nets – if only we’d been intuitively developed, yet we continually miss propagating the genius of intuition.

To date, only one set of books and resources addresses these connections, and to date, they have also remained unchallenged. They are unchallenged because the professional world still misunderstands the intuitive connections between Cognition, Language, Relationships, Emotions, Reasoning, Common Sense, Critical Thinking, Logical Hypothesizing, Doing the Math, and the whole authentic development of our human brains. If we want to really solve problems and innovate, we need Intuition!

That is the tale; the unrecognized, or unrecognized and unrequited depiction of our birthright and destiny to master intuitive intelligence. We are all either part of the problem, or part of the solution – part of the conspiracy, or part of the idiocy. Teens however, are in neither of these categories. As teens are navigating the final trimester of their intuitive-cognitive development, they have the opportunity to substantially alter the progress of human history by acquiring and practicing the interconnecting traits and mechanics of intuition that can still unleash their own genius – and everyone has an intuition. Only Cognitivology® is offering the means and information for that task. So, stay tuned and stay connected. Signing off for now, C. Woolf, principle author of Cognitivology® resources.

Conversations – T. Wolfe’s “catch-22” vs. C. Woolf’s “catch-22”

If memory serves me correctly, in typical Tom Wolfe style, he points out the ridiculous, in this instance, the case in which people must face the circus of trying to get a job without the job experience, meanwhile one would need a job in order to get any job or work experience.  What we are pointing out here at Cognitivology is the matter of improving human development by using more of our brains while we need to use more of our brains in order to better develop our humanity.
Einstein has said that “problems can never be solved by the same level of awareness that created them” — so we are going to be in a catch-22 situation until we can come up with a solution that uses a higher sense of awareness, which is why we propose that creating a higher sense of awareness is going to be best achieved by cultivating fresh new young minds with the ability to use more of their brains from the get-go, so to speak.  
My Mama is constantly reminding me to write about the Cognitivology theme in ways that folks will understand what I’m getting at.  My ever conscientious co-author is always advising me to use common experiences of everyday life to describe the efforts of Cognitivology so that people might identify with our theme.  
Yesterday I had what was nearly an ugly confrontation with a fellow in a supermarket, so I’ve put all of these aforementioned elements together, I think, to come up with an explanation that exposes the ridiculously difficult challenge that all of us are subjected to under the thousands-of-years-old model of limited brain development that we must deal with everyday.  
But before I explain this conversation, or rather this confrontation, I should answer a question that I am constantly asked when I freely engage complete strangers into a discussion about Cognitivology in my own attempts to spread its ideas — and that question is, “what motivated you to do this sort of work”? Well, it’s very simple and I must confess, I’ve never honestly answered it, so I’m going to do it here.  
The truth is that I hate the fact that we humans are using only about 20% of our brains’ potential.  I feel extremely irritated by this condition and am reminded daily that although I’m constantly working to bring awareness to this condition we all suffer and do what I can to change this condition, I am as equally subject to it as everyone else and therefore none the better or worse than anyone else.
To divulge this frustration, I recount this encounter in the supermarket.  I was looking for an item, found a store attendant who had been conversing with another customer, who I mistakenly thought was another store worker. When I’d lingered long enough, I interjected by saying, “sorry, could you just tell me where the rice is”? For this interruption, I was interfaced by the customer, mistaken by me as a co-worker, with an abrupt “excuse me, I’d like to finish my sentence”, followed by my saying, “I’m sorry I hardly wanted it to seem as though I’d been eavesdropping on your conversation”. To this, the man responded with how rude I was being and then a command that I should lower the tone and volume of my voice.  In return, I now said, “Well, I’m sorry, but I spend a lot of my time teaching children and working with the elderly who are hard of hearing, and this is a normal tone of voice for me, it’s just an occupational hazard”. At this point, the man responded, “so what does that mean, that you are better than me, I’m a retired…”
The store attended was quick thinking enough to point me in the right direction for which I took my cue to remain consistent with my commitment to behave and think in accordance with higher brain potential, which is based on the brain’s natural system to process thoughts and emotions through the values of compassion and optimism – which is how the brain means to integrate thoughts and emotions as one harmonious process.  
So here’s the ugly truth — what did I really want to say and how did I really want to behave?  Like this — “hey Mister, I don’t have time to explain quantum processing to emotionally illiterate men over the age of 30, did I say I talk loud because I think I’m better than everyone else? – no, you made that irrelevant reference, I said I talk loud because of my occupations, but mostly I just talk loud because it’s a stupid compulsion of mine, and while you have the right to tell me that I’m being rude, it’s too bad for you that it is only I that can decide how to use my voice.”  
For those of you wondering what in the world quantum processing is, it is, essentially, the ability to use relevant and obvious information, in this case, I gave him the reasons why I’d had the habit of using my voice loudly, but he assumed according to his own reasons that my loud and perturbing voice was different than what I clearly stated, and he has every right to assume away.  But, that I thought I might be better than anyone else was the furthest thing from my mind and just nowhere in the radar of my feelings or thoughts – so it was plainly and simply a lack of quantum processing on his part.  
Furthermore, in my experience, people who usually say that sort of comment, especially when the person they are conversing with has said nothing of the sort, is usually someone who thinks that he (or she) is better than others, or has been severely reminded in their early development that he or she is inferior to others.  It is a topic that is obviously always on his mind.  Okay, to conclude this whole story, the point is once again, I believe that most people most of the time are trying to be better human beings and that we are constantly barraged with this catch-22 situation of getting caught in the net of limited brain potential. It is an exasperating situation that is exacerbated on a daily basis.  
The contributions we make range from the individual level of being more conscientious to the worldwide level where people have the influence and resources to tackle say, world hunger or green planet solutions for the future.  But whether on the individual level in the supermarket or on the larger scale of tackling major world problems, the limits of human relationships that depend on human development, which is synonymous with human BRAIN development is going to continue being a catch-22, and as a race, as a species, we are in denial of this fact.  
These ongoing and never-ending problems of world hunger, child abuse, warfare and the like will only cease when humans change, and we can really only change humanity if child development, that is, child BRAIN development is put at the forefront of human progress — because human progress and human development is human BRAIN development and human brain development is CHILD BRAIN development.  There’s never going to be any way around that.
The infrastructures of human existence can only improve when we improve the ways that we think, which are based on the ways that we feel, because the human brain is an emotionally developed brain.  The Theory of Relativity for Human Brain Development is attainable, in fact it’s already here and it can create as much progress for human development as Einstein’s Theory of Relativity has done for the Space-Age, Technology and Quantum Physics.  
Of course, this emotional brain development theory rests on a rigorous definition for Emotional Cognition, which has been rigorously unveiled by Cognitivology. But it remains to be acknowledged by mainstream Cognitive Theorists, as well as the Neuroscience field. So, as I end today’s blog, I do so completely violating the advice I’ve been given — make it comprehensible, make it short, etc, etc,…  
So here’s to another long blog, which brings us to the final catch-22, because probably, like most blogs, this will hardly, if ever be read at all. Nevertheless, it will save me some of the frustration of explaining quantum knowledge calculations that our brains should be intuitively developed enough to process, and maybe, just maybe, I can parade around like a blissfully happy human being that wants to treat others with the compassion and optimism they deserve without having to explain myself, and if people really want to know what’s really going on in my head, then I can point them in the direction of my blog. The End, ’til next time. 

THE FANTASY OF NEUROSCIENTISTS – The Race to Uncover the Mysterious Power of the Prefrontal Cortex

The fantasy of Neuroscientists should never be confused with the fantastic job that Neuroscientists have done to uncover so much phenomenal information about human brain processes that describe human brain development.   Years ago, if you were reading a cosmetic magazine, it was filled with ads, stories and anecdotes about the world of beauty, and if you were reading Popular Mechanics, it would be all about planes, trains, automobiles and the new technologies about motors and race cars.  But now, it’s impossible to pickup any magazine and never see something about the human brain’s effect on our perspectives of beauty, or perhaps, how in the future, quantum entanglement and the brain’s ability to observe and affect particle behavior will determine how well your car’s engine will run. Both fantasy and reality are presented in modern day literature and the workings of our brains are represented with them.  In the upper echelons of the Neuroscientific world, the most highly sought after and coveted fantasy of Neuroscientists’ is equivalent to the “Race to Relativity” that took place between Einstein and his adversaries. Actually, there was really only one adversary in the ‘race to relativity’, everyone else was busy trying to discredit and invalidate what Einstein was saying, instead of getting busy using their own intuitive minds like Einstein was doing.  In any event, it seems pretty clear that the goal of Neuroscientists is to uncover the great and powerful Oz lurking in the most advanced intelligence feature of our human brains ~ the workings of the Prefrontal Cortex. Even the great Einstein himself struggled with nailing down ‘Relativity’ until he re-introduced the ‘constant’ into his famous equation.   Neuroscientists, on the other hand are still trying to figure out what the ‘constant’ in the Relativity equation of the Prefrontal Cortex is, even though it’s been right under their noses for years. In other words, Einstein figured out that time and space were smoothly related and interdependent. He also figured out that motion and gravity have a similar relationship as time and space. But Neuroscientists still think that “reasoning” and “emotioning” are at war. They are unable to figure out the smooth, relative, interdependent relationship between emotions and reasoning skills. But cheer up brain aficionados, Cognitivology is happy to introduce you to the ‘constant’ – – it is simply “integration”!  How so you might say?  The human brain is the most complex entity or organ in the universe?!? But in the paraphrased words of Einstein, the answers regarding questions about the universe are both simple and beautiful. The real power and potential of the Prefrontal Cortex, as UN-described by Neuroscience, is more than just figuring out how to master emotional impulses while performing highly attuned reasoning skills.  The real power within the Prefrontal Cortex is its innate ability to make zero distinctions between altruistic thoughts and altruistic emotions – consistent with the brain’s natural hard-wired system to be configured and developed by the fundamental properties of Compassion and Optimism. The Prefrontal Cortex is the playing field for the simultaneous and indistinct application of Intuitive Reasoning and Quantum Processing skills.  In other words, all of these skills are all performed and conducted as a completely integrated process by a fully developed Prefrontal Cortex.  But in order for the Prefrontal Cortex to become fully developed, it requires an integrated precursor for its fully integrated development and potential – and that precursor is the Preschool stage of development. As you can only imagine, understanding Preschool cognitive brain development is a distinctly distant and unsophisticated variable in the sophisticated minds of highly advanced intelligent thinking Neuroscientists.  It seems that for Neuroscientists, Preschool development is either, un-relative, or too humbling to include as the fundamentally constant variable of integration in the equation for figuring out the core elements and requisite basic building blocks for the full developmental potential of the Prefrontal Cortex.  The integrated mechanics of the Prefrontal Cortex must be rooted in certain fundamentally rigorous properties of early integrated brain development.  Until Neuroscientists can reconcile with the real definition of the altruistic operations of the Prefrontal Cortex by connecting it to the fundamental integrated properties of Preschool Intuitive-Cognitive-Brain development they will keep fumbling in the race to uncover the actual power and potential of the Prefrontal Cortex.  Sadly, and unbeknownst to them, they are so far behind in the race that they have missed seeing that Cognitivology has already crossed the Finish Line.  

The inextricable link between free will and human brain development

As mentioned in earlier blog entries, whether you believe in a divine being or whether
you believe in the panspermia-alien theory, or whether you believe that the human race
evolved here by a cosmic game of chance, the result is still that we are all faced with the
same deal. That deal deems that the human brain has unfolded and developed into the
most complex entity in all of the universe – and we all possess one of these brains,
regardless of what we believe and our brains function according to certain properties that are consistent with certain basic natural properties of the universe.
The complexity of the human brain simply means that it is capable of complex
intelligent thinking and empathetic behavior functions. Altogether, this would suggest
that an intelligent designer was at the drawing board of this complex strategy for the
development of the human brain. But this is hardly a debate about the origins of the
human brain. This is about the resulting reality that we are in possession of such a
complex piece of equipment. So the question is – what shall we do with it and how can
we uncover and ensure the prospect of using all of its potential?
