WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO LEARN
ABOUT YOUR MIND'S
MENTAL FUNCTIONS?

May 24, 2022

green separater

The information on this website can help you quickly understand your brain's physical structures and your mind's mental functions. That is because it combines the spaced-repetition method of memorization and the flash card technique of learning with the help of computers and smart phones and tablets. Such new learning devices and technology can help you rapidly improve your natural willpower and your creative imagination.

This new cognitive neuroscience focus on brain ideas is based upon science-oriented cultural knowledge amassed during the past century. This rational perspective can help you learn about the scientific humanistic chain-of-logic explained by the 15 basic brain-ideas. Then you will have a more complete understanding of the need to create a "fine-tuned, well-organized" neuro-philosophy of mind.

This strategy for learning the 15 basic brain-ideas efficiently and effectively can make you smarter faster than any other way. The dozens of structured links on this website are organized to provide you with the most efficient way to learn about your brain and mind (or anything else you are curious about).

This new linguistic context can provide you with many synergistic advantages as you learn how to optimize your amazing mind's mental functions. You will be able to make better decisions and focus your time as you learn how to reduce anxiety and empower yourself to meet your unique personal needs.

You will be manipulating the same bodily functions of human nature that all humans and proto-humans have been using to survive for about 300,000 years!

Homo sapiens, the victorious species, have survived to outlast and evolve further than all other extinct predecessors. Sapiens have been the single human species for only the past 40 to 30 thousand years. We have emerged with distinct species characteristics, including our "big brain" and some identifiable Neanderthal genes, and many other things, during the past 10-12 thousand years. We quickly spread around the world after the fifth and last ice age about 10,000 BCE as we developed cities and farming, and then since about 3200 BCE we developed written languages. That was about 5,220 years ago!

Your natural willpower and creative imagination, as well as your opposable thumbs on both hands, have made you a uniquely curious and creative human being. You have the same superpowers that have made humans the dominant evolutionary force for good, as well as for evil, on Earth!

Memorization is most effective when you associate strong positive emotions with the new brain facts and ideas. The immersive "flooding" approach to learning targeted information that is promoted on this website can also reinforce memories about anything else that you want to recall — or forget.

As you learn more about your "big brain" in an evolutionary context, and its relationship to your amazing mind, you will learn that memorization involves the transfer of memory molecules of cognitive information from your "scratch-pad" or "working (short-term) memory" in your prefrontal cortex to your relatively permanent "long-term memory" in your hippocampus.

Because of synaptic plasticity, which is the ultimate biological source of your creative imagination, your focus on the 15 basic brain-ideas can add "density" to the memory molecules lodged in the hundreds of thousands of new synapses that you are able to create as you study how your brain works.

To repeat this significant idea, when you repeatedly think about the difference between your brain's physicality and your mind's mentality, in the context of the interactive relationships among the 15 basic brain-ideas, you will be creating stronger memories about the sources of your own consciousness and conscientiousness.

IMPORTANCE OF MEMORIZING FACTS
AND IDEAS ABOUT YOUR BRAIN
AND MIND AS SEPARATE THINGS

green separator

The old metaphor that the brain is like a "clock" or "computer" with fixed wiring has been debunked by the new brain knowledge. Your brain's "plasticity" (neuroplasticity) is your brain's natural biological ability to change itself by itself and to adapt at all ages — if any don't have any severe brain disorders. The basic subconscious physicality of your brain's plasticity process makes possible the mental capacity of your mind to create a flexible "growth mindset" whenever you want to do it — if your brain tissue is healthy enough.

For example, the enormously important process of "synaptic plasticity" strengthens the memory molecules in the ionic biochemical signals of the action potential spikes, which flow in all of your neuronal pathways. These biochemical nerve signals start in the neurons of the working (short-term) memory part of your prefrontal cortex and then flow down a few inches inside the neuronal pathways of your anterior cingulate cortices inside both temporal lobes of your right and left hemispheres to your long-term memory in your hippocampus.

This dynamic process produces your incredible conscious self-awareness. The biochemical nerve signals can flow both forward or backward along different pathways often in the same cable of nerves. You can control this educational flow of biochemical signals by using the format of the 15 brain-flash-cards. They cards enable you to focus your natural willpower when you study the differences between your brain and your mind. Then you will be able to apply your creative imagination to quickly improve your logical reasoning skills and mindfulness skills and memory consolidation skills.

Using the framework of the 15 basic brain-ideas can help you perceive the pertinent brain information without being confused by traditional words that refer to old myths and fallacies that refer to false mistaken mystical meanings.

The same structure of picture-diagrams on the front and the back sides of the 15 brain-flash-cards makes it easy for you to learn the specific information on both sides of each card. The paired flash cards include the same question and answer format of colors and text fonts and usually the same diagrams on both sides.

Having such concise focused declarative statements of both the questions and the answers on separate sides of the same flash cards can provide the quickest way to memorize the new brain information (or any other kind of information). This happens because both the question and the answer on each flash card can be seen by you and associated in a few seconds and then repeatedly perceived for a few minutes. This willful process of willful learning can predictably reinforce the process of memorization in your long-term memory.

When you repeat this process several times on the first day and then several times during the next few days, you will be creating many more new synapses linking neurons in the neuronal pathways that go from your working (short-term) memory to your long-term memory. When you deliberately choose to educate yourself this way, your hippocampus can verifiably grow in physical size!

This was proven originally by the famous London Taxi Driver's study. And later, the three-month yo-yo experiment with children led by John J. Ratey, whose Harvard research was reported in his book, Spark: the Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain, It was published by Little, Brown in 2008 (i-ix, 294 pages).

Your hippocampus, which is located at the bottom of your evolutionary skull, is the most protected area inside your bony skull. This undeniable fact provides historic evidence of the evolutionary importance of your brain's long-term memory, which is the main source of your mind's adaptable self-identity!

This website is structured so you can use short study sessions of 20-30 minutes to learn each of the 15 basic brain-ideas. Such brief sessions can be effective in helping you use your own natural willpower to apply critical thinking skills and critical reading strategies as you study the difference between the structure of your brain and the functions of your mind. In this regard, the word "critical" means using modern logic and your ability to reason when you choose among alternative viewpoints on the basis of known facts: not doubts or fears.

Specifically, your hippocampus saves the most important memories, which are involved in the feedback loop between your brain's long-term memory function and your brain's executive function in your prefrontal cortex. This back and forth brain circuit provides the feedback loop that links these two separate coordinated processes to produce your adaptable self-identity. Together, they produce your natural willpower and your creative imagination.

As you begin your brain study sessions, it is recommended that you continuously ask yourself the following question:

"What are the distinctions between
my brain and my mind and the
connections among the 15 brain-ideas?"


green separator

The 15 basic brain-ideas can be printed from the following three links of lists and also from a forth link to a file called "Study Guide Instructions". As you save new memories in your hippocampus, you will be accelerating the learning process by using two of your main senses: vision and touch.

Your vision sense (eyes) can read the online files on the screens (or your printouts) and your touch sense (skin and muscle memory) is involved in all of your other bodily movements when you print or read or write down changes to the text on the printouts.

You can use the printable lists to accelerate the speed of your memorization. This powerful multisensory learning technique can be augmented with the widely known spaced-repetition method of memorization:

These memorization activities in conjunction with your visual perception can maximize your learning outcomes in the shortest possible time. This fact is due to this predictable "spaced-repetition method" of memorization. In addition, you can make changes to the text on the printouts that you make in order to add more facts and ideas to your long-term memory. These changes will reflect the level of your true brain knowledge as you start your study. This self-editing correction process makes the brain ideas easier for you to understand. It makes the ideas more personally relevant to you as you advance in your understanding of the distinctions among your brain and your mind.

Since you control the speed at which you turn over each of the paired flash cards to refresh your memory about their contents, you are in charge of the amount of time and the number of repetitions it takes for you to remember the key facts and the shape of the arguments related to each brain idea. When you choose to repeat this process several times, both in the moment and then again during the next few days of planned brain study sessions, you will be effectively facilitating the learning process most efficiently.

For more detailed information, there are two quick link files named Details files and Sources files for each of the 15 brain-ideas. The new brain vocabulary, including both words and definitions, can be "chunked" together.

Chunked is the new word in brain science for "categorizing" or "departmentalizing" the new brain ideas in your memory resources. The process of chunking is a systematic way of organizing brain facts and ideas together in a rational secular way of thinking. The important new distinction is that you will be consciously choosing to organize your own ideas about human nature in your long-term memory resources by yourself for specific reasons. They are the kind of new facts and ideas you need when you plan for the future. The declarative statements are the key to understanding and describing human nature accurately in modern up-to-date language --- in words!

In addition, a unique 30 Day Timetable Chart, is linked to the Study Guide. This printable form makes it easy for you to track the progress of your learning about the 15 brain-ideas and their supporting facts. When you chunk the new brain information, you will be linking the specific 15 brain-ideas together, word for word, by memorizing the precise declarative statements that describe them.



By consciously monitoring the amount of time you spend learning about your brain's structures and your mind's functions, you will have a tangible reminder of your progress. Whether it takes only a few days or more than 30 days to master the new brain vocabulary, you can still use some of the consequential insights about your mind's functions immediately.

These words can replace the words strung together in obsolete traditional religious and political metaphors, which have no meaning in the current scientific age — except as misinformation and disinformation. As we know today of the bifurcation of our two major political powers, democrats use "real words" that describe real things and republicans use "fake words" with hidden meanings that obscure the real economic facts and confuse the impact of long-term racism and prejudice against various ethnic minorities, but especially females and black people.

Religious cults and autocratic political organizations and institutions have their abstract vocabularies of inaccurate and incorrect misleading words that cause confusion rather than enlightenment about the genuine power structure in the United States of America. Both political parties still use references to nonexistent historical deities or traditional authoritarian principles that have been used repeatedly throughout history by tyrannical absolute rulers, such as the pharaohs and kings of the past.

Typically, many of the leaders of empires and countries in the ancient world believed that if they associated themselves with a powerful cultural deity by name and statuary in temples and tombs and symbolic writing, their uneducated subjects would believe that the political propaganda of the ruler was unified with some sort of deity or heavenly power that controlled human life.

This traditional false religious belief, which still pervades the ruling elites of many countries today, describes the use of figurative abstract symbols and words and monuments to gods and goddesses or authoritarian rulers so they appear to be literally true, instead of simply counterfeit images of imaginary idols used for political propaganda purposes. Unfortunately, those ancient beliefs were only unsubstantiated simplistic, self-serving fabricated metaphorical or figurative wishes.

Today, believers in religions of all kinds call their beliefs faith-based. However, such religious belief systems differ from modern scientific humanism in the fact that human behavior and values can be based upon self-confidence and self-esteem rather than some other so-called cosmic power. Humanists prefer to say that their beliefs and values are "self-confidence-based."

Nevertheless, by choosing to use the new scientific brain vocabulary, you will be able to activate and enervate your adaptable self-identity. You will be able to create a dependable set of rational evidence-based altruistic humanistic assumptions about the meaning of life that can energize and strengthen your personal values and social relationships.

As you begin to transform your life, a good meme or mantra for remembering this important assumption is:

"Doubt Your Childhood IMAGINARY Beliefs!
And Believe Your Adult RATIONAL Doubts!"

IMPORTANCE OF USING YOUR
NATURAL WILLPOWER TO CREATE
A NEW ADAPTABLE SELF-IDENTITY

green separator

There is a quick link on the Index of this website named Quotations About Consciousness. That file contains many definitions for the word consciousness derived from dozens of experts in their recently published books about the histories of the human brain. The authors are respected brain scientists or science journalists.

The book titles are arranged alphabetically inside flaming circles. Besides gaining your attention, the rings of fire symbolize the first great invention of human animals that accelerated the increase in the size of the human brain about two million years ago! It was the controlled use of fire to cook meat along with vegetables for energy and the gradual expansion over hundreds of thousands of years of human cognitive resources.

Also the alphabetical list gives you instant associations among many scientific perspectives about the various meanings for the word "consciousness." The books contain brain information, which can focus your attention on the genuine issues involved in understanding and activating your two dominant mental functions. They are your natural willpower and your creative imagination.

After you choose to spend time creatively integrating the 15 brain-ideas into your sense-of-self (secular-self or self), you will need to focus on forgetting older unsubstantiated memories, since we are fortunate now to be living in the age of science. If you have believed in unscientific traditional beliefs about human nature in the past, which are not useful anymore, you now have the opportunity to unlearn them and replace them with knowledge about your true human mental potential.

Therefore, to repeat this important new possibility, you may need to correct any incorrect false faith-based beliefs that you may have learned during your past. You can choose to use a modern scientific value system, which includes the following values: a passion for intellectual freedom and for rational decision-making with the support of liberal democratic pluralism in both community relationships and in democratic political activities both at the local and the national levels.

You may have learned false beliefs or opinions about human nature (false information or fake news or historic myths) as a child — or as a teenager — or even as an adult. The misinformation may have been taught to you when you were very young by adult authority figures who may not have had a strong scientific background. Or you may have read ancient books about ancient history long before you had the maturity (mental capacity) to establish the "truth" about the beliefs and opinions you were taught or had learned as a child.

Now, after you develop some fresh new critical thinking skills, you will be able to evaluate whether your earlier beliefs and opinions were true or not. You will be able to determine their veracity and then choose to adopt a "growth mindset" built on scientific principles of human nature.

But you need to devise a plan to efficiently extinguish irrelevant faith-based beliefs of the past. This means that you need to purposefully stop reinforcing old unjustified opinions and beliefs of your past thinking and behavior and consciously choose to start memorizing the new brain facts and ideas, one at a time!

Nevertheless, now you may want to choose to forget old memories which are confusing or irrelevant in the present moment. To achieve this objective, you can make a list of your old beliefs and compare those declarative statements to the new facts about your cognitive reality today. Then you can use your new information from this website and your other current personal knowledge sources to summarize your list of new assumptions and values described by your new list of aspirational declarative statements.

The lists will objectively describe unsupported false beliefs or opinions you may have learned as you were growing up and also the new true beliefs based upon scientific evidence. Then you will need to acknowledge at a deep emotional level of self-awareness that any childhood beliefs were simply metaphorical or metaphysical assumptions and/or opinions. They were based simply on feelings you had as a youth without any evidence when you first adopted them.

Any unsubstantiated opinions or beliefs from childhood or youth should be acknowledged as having been incorrect if there is no real evidence for them now in your present life. This "filtering process" or purification ritual is very important since old memories are usually loaded with strong emotional associations. This is especially true if people do not understand the new brain idea about "constructed emotions." If you keep old memories full of misinformation in quick recall, you can become confused and/or anxious about what they mean now that you are an adult.

This process is urgent for you to understand fully, since you can unwittingly overload the "cognitive reserve" function of your brain. If you do, then you may be sacrificing your chances for survival if your thinking resources are diminished when you need them most. You may require extra cognitive energy to react or respond to an immediate urgent emergency to save your life!

Any unscientific opinions and beliefs that are now less significant in your life, can be compared to the essential true revelations of evidence-based empirical brain knowledge about universal humanistic ethical values, such as the Golden Rule.

By using the power of education to learn the true cultural emotional context (not spiritual) of all your ideas, you can facilitate modification of any old unscientific traditional ideas about your willpower and imagination. You can modify traditional old ideas about your mental capacity by deliberately forgetting them if they are incompatible with the new brain science knowledge that could save your life and make it more meaningful.

IMPORTANCE OF REALIZING THAT
EVOLUTION AND CULTURE ARE
THE SOURCES OF HUMAN NATURE

green separator

The primary process of evolution has been verified by the fossil record of more than 500 million years. This long past "deep history" of once living organisms, including many kinds of apes and many kinds of proto-humans as well as other kinds of human species before Sapiens evolved!

The deep history involves individuals and groups of other animal species that had to face incredible challenges and obstacles, including several ice ages, in order to survive to ultimately become small groups of surviving human beings between approximately 30-40 thousand years ago.

However, since about 5,000 years ago, with the invention of cities, and the development of widespread trade among different empires around the Mediterranean Sea, and the invention of written languages, evolution changed on earth. It is not simply about the mere survival of individuals through biological reproduction, but now includes our human use of our mind's mental functions ("mental forces") that created our culture, which expanded our human consciousness and skill-sets!

Now that we humans dominate the planet, we can become more aware of how we need to consciously change our behavior (our decisions) on both a national scale and a global scale. We must learn to facilitate peaceful cooperation rather than violent competition between human groups to keep our planet Earth life-sustaining. Even though evolution has no "purpose" in the way we usually think about our own personal destiny, it has given us the mental functions (brainpower) to control the destiny of our own species as well as the destinies of all other species of living plants and animals on Earth!

At the individual level, your natural willpower and creative imagination are both factual phenomena: not illusions as many scientists have believed in the past. They misunderstood the true evolutionary processes due to the faulty philosophical assumptions about human nature at the time.

The new science of genetics and epigenetics has been a breakthrough in thinking about true evolutionary processes. Epigenetic changes are chemical changes that do not alter the DNA sequence but modify the way genes are expressed through RNA translation by being switched either on or off by learned social influences!

To repeat, your natural willpower and natural creativity both depend on the existence of a healthy connection between your working memory function and your long-term memory.

This fundamental connection includes all the in-between "buffers" of neuron clusters in the neuronal pathways that do the connecting. The buffers are located mostly in the frontal lobes and temporal lobes of your cerebrum. Also the involuntary mechanisms of your cerebellum, which is known as your "second brain," control the crucial functions of your unconscious breathing and heart beat. It is now known that they are also involved in various memory functions.

IMPORTANCE OF MEMORY CODES
FOR MEMORIZING FACTS AND IDEAS

green separator

The 15 memory-codes on the fronts of the 15 brain-flash-cards can help you facilitate and accelerate your brain study. They are directly linked to the definitions of the 15 brain-ideas on the backs of the 15 brain-flash-cards.

This arrangement permits the condensation of complex meanings into simpler declarative statements for easier recall. They are much easier to recall than more complex narratives are. Thus the 15 memory-codes function like acronyms since they encode your memories of the new brain definitions within a new shorter logical context or frame of reference.

To clarify the learning process, the memory codes function like cues in the same way that familiar acronyms do. You can probably instantly recognize the acronyms: COVID-19, FB, FBI, CIA, NIH, IBM, or PTSD. For example, "COVID-19" is the universal code for the new novel coronavirus. And the letters "FB" can quickly evoke memories about Facebook, the social media giant, because they assist memory recall from the triggers in the long-term memory function of your hippocampus.

After they are learned, the 15 memory-codes can function like tangible reminders of the 15 brain-ideas. Because some of your past memories already contain these alphabetical letters in millions of synapses inside the neuronal pathways of the memory consolidation part of your long-term memory function, you will be able to recall the 15 brain-ideas much easier in the future.

Just imagine how difficult it would be to learn the new brain ideas if they were described only in the Russian language using only the Russian alphabet. You would probably have a far more difficult challenge to learn what the new brain ideas are, if you did not know the Russian language ahead of time!

However, the new brain facts and ideas are described on this website in plain English using the 26 letters of the English alphabet. This makes it easy for you to learn the meanings for the new words and definitions which describe your mind's mental functions.

By paying attention to the memory codes on the fronts of the 15 brain-flash-cards, and by associating them with the 15 brain-ideas many times, you will be using the working memory function part of your prefrontal cortex and the long-term memory function of your hippocampus, where memory consolidation happens.

This strategy can help you decode the brain information on both sides of each card more efficiently in the "visual cortex" of your brain. It is located in the two occipital lobes at the back of your cerebrum.

About one-third of your brain's cognitive capacity is involved in decoding the visual sensory information that comes in through your two eyes. In addition, the more senses you activate, such as your vision, taste, touch, hearing, smell, and balance, and the more "self-talk" you do when you "read" to yourself the declarative statements, about your brain, which identify the 15 brain-ideas, the faster you will be able to memorize them.

The more times you expose your brain to the new brain vocabulary, the more synapses or neuron connectors (switching junctions) are created. And the more synapses, the stronger the associations among the neurons that are related to your previous memories about the brain ideas. This same memorization process can be applied when you want to remember anything else!

UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN YOUR BRAIN AND MIND
AND MEMORY SYSTEMS

green separator

You can set your own goals and measure your own progress yourself as you realize that the new brain knowledge makes sense. This kind of self-directed learning is the easiest way to learn anything new. In addition, the physical structure of this website provides you with relevant feedback about the quality of your brain study strategies.

The more you study your brain, the more your mind will become more resilient as you apply this educational process to yourself and share it with your family and friends. Your self-identity (secular-self or self) requires a living brain and living body working together to produce your natural willpower and your creative imagination.

There is no mysterious magical "soul" or religious afterlife for anybody. There is only your adaptable self-identity which is enough to experience willpower and happiness. To believe this secular philosophy of life, you will be using both your semantic memory and your episodic memory in a coordinated way to remember the text and the pictures on the 15 brain-flash-cards.

Your semantic memory function is your ability to remember specific facts in the format of declarative statements that are presumed to be factual. And your episodic memory function is your ability to remember specific past events in the form of a film or movie with characters and associated feelings from your past. However, since your "remembered memory" is usually just a rough facsimile of the actual events and not completely accurate, you can change the associated feelings you have when you think about it.

This means that you can develop the mental skills (mental forces) to revisit old memories and either strengthen them by embellishing them or weakening them by purposefully forgetting them. You have a mental function to override old useless or dangerous negative memories and intentionally decide to forget them, based upon new information from your current experiences in the present moment.

This memory function applies to both personal memories and memories of cultural events, such as the names of colors or the names of states; the sounds of letters or songs; the capitals of states or countries; grammar rules or vocabulary words; and other important institutional opinions or cultural scientific "facts" or "false facts" learned over a lifetime of living.

What is new today is the brain knowledge that the same brain tissue is activated whether people are believing "facts" or "false facts." The difference appears to be the childhood values of the in-group or subculture that children and teenagers grow up in and the quality of the education that the children and teenagers experience as they develop, from dependence to independence as mature adults.

To summarize: the new brain research can explain the objective biological sources of your subjective perceptions about your explicit self-awareness and your adaptable self-identity (secular self or self).

Now it is clear that your mind's mental functions (understood to be "mental forces") can control your emotions and habits. But you must develop the personal knowledge, which includes facts about your natural willpower and your creative imagination.

You can choose to have a curious mind and a trainable mind, which provides the opportunity for you to optimize your mind's mental functions. With this new perspective, you will be able to understand how to think better and how to make reasonable choices compatible with liberal democratic social values. As a mature adult, you can strengthen your natural willpower no matter what ideas and values you may have been compelled to learn as a completely dependent child or a semi-dependent teenager.

But to do this, you need to understand the new brain vocabulary (language and words) and the neuro-philosophical assumptions and facts that they are based upon. In addition, you must deliberately forget the incorrect traditional cultural metaphors and myths and fallacies that you may have learned earlier in your life, which is easy to do after you have learned the new brain knowledge.

In addition to the natural process of neuroplasticity, the brains of both children and adults can change by neurogenesis. New neurons can be created in only two parts of your limbic system: namely, your olfactory glands, which are the part of your brain that detects odors, and your hippocampus, which is the part of your brain that contains the "triggers" of your long-term memory function.

The memories are splattered inside the "association areas" of both of your cerebral hemispheres, particularly on the insides of your temporal lobes where they touch your anterior cingulate pathways on both sides of your brain.

Furthermore, you will become aware of the fact that your adaptable self-identity (secular-self or self) depends primarily upon the special interactivity of your working memory function located in your cerebrum's prefrontal cortex and your long-term memory function located in your hippocampus. Together, they both contribute to activating and enriching all of your memories, whose parts are now known to be contained in the hundreds of trillions of synapses that connect your hundreds of billions of neurons!

The memory consolidation process of your long-term memory function is the part of your brain that preserves the triggers for your episodic, semantic, and autobiographic declarative memory functions. They, along with your non-declarative memory function, which is your procedural memory (muscle memory), are the true sources of your natural willpower and adaptable self-identity.

With this basic brain knowledge, you can purposefully create a positive growth mindset with your awesome memory functions. These functions can reinvigorate your natural willpower and expand your adaptable self-identity (secular-self or self).

Recently, new evidence has shown that your cerebellum contributes to the procedural muscle memory function of your long-term memory function. Therefore, your cerebellum also contributes to your adaptable self-identity in a previously unknown way.

After you train your brain to be more efficient, you will be able to predictably create your own future to a large degree — and flourish. You will be able to TAP or CLICK into various exciting topics on this website at your pleasure. Then you can return to these links anytime you choose. Therefore, you can instantly compare or review brain information quickly. This act of frequently remembering the new brain knowledge can reinforce your recall ability later. The brain information on this website can provide you with a positive growth mindset, since it proclaims the scientific truth about reality. With your natural willpower and creative imagination, you can make decisions which can improve the quality of your life in a predictable way.

SUMMARY: The best way to study the brain ideas is to use the 15 brain flash cards along with the spaced-repetition method of memorization to learn the new brain knowledge — and remember it. Both techniques can speed up your brain study. Then you will be free to act in an altruistic ethical humanistic way.

RECOMMENDATION: You may print this essay and read it and edit it by adding or deleting brain ideas. Then you can read your edited version by using an effective reinforcement schedule with either the flash-card technique or the spaced-repetition method of memorization — or both. That strategy can speed up your learning of the new basic brain ideas and the interactions among them. Such deep introspection can strengthen your willpower and increase your self-esteem. Then you can dramatically change your adaptable self-identity and your relationships with others.
