Mixing fact with fiction, however, is even more strange ............http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/brain/e ... dbrain.php
The human brain includes many regions that evolved long ago. Our older “lizard brain” parts keep our bodies working and provide basic survival motivations, while our newer “mammal brain” regions improve our emotions and memory. Our “primate brain,” with its large, wrinkly cortex, helps us plan, predict, and use language. All these regions work together. So while ancient urges still drive our behavior, we constantly think up new strategies for achieving these goals. http://www.solhaam.org/articles/humind.html
As a result of the work reported here there has emerged a much clearer appreciation of what happens during the course of a night's sleep, and clear explanations of the role of dreaming and the meaning of dreams.
The report explores the functioning and role of the two halves of the human brain and the relationship between them. It is the right half which usually communicates with the primitive parts of the human brain.
A key finding of this report is that the right hemisphere of the human brain is able to communicate by using images with the brain's older and more primitive component organs which have no verbal skills. This enables us to communicate intentionally (that is 'consciously') with our autonomic nervous system and ask it by visualising to control body functions and to affect our body's immune system. Any or all our senses can be included when visualising.
Hence it is possible to direct and use the mind's subconscious maintenance and control capabilities, and so enable environmental experience and knowledge to be applied for one's benefit. That is, one's knowledge and experience can be consciously applied towards modifying the mind's subconscious control of body functions for the benefit of the individual.
The report also relates the functioning of the brain to behaviour, showing to some extent how human behaviour is affected by the primitive instincts of our reptilian ancestors.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illuminati
Interest in the Illuminati and the assertions that it exists today began after the publication of The Illuminatus! Trilogy, a postmodern science fiction work whose plot prominently featured an Illuminati plot to rule the world. Writers such as Mark Dice, David Icke, Texe Marrs, Ryan Burke, Jüri Lina and Morgan Gricar have argued that the Bavarian Illuminati survived, possibly to this day. Many of these theories propose that world events are being controlled and manipulated by a secret society calling itself the Illuminati. Conspiracy theorists have claimed that many notable people were or are members of the Illuminati. Presidents of the United States are a common target for such claims.
A key figure in the conspiracy theory movement, Myron Fagan, devoted his latter years to finding evidence that a variety of historical events from Waterloo, The French Revolution, President John F. Kennedy's assassination and an alleged communist plot to hasten the New World Order by infiltrating the Hollywood film industry, were all orchestrated by the Illuminati.
