It's your brain, can you Yoke(yoga) it into a new configuration?

Thanks Arkayik - interesting stuff. Have you seen this study?

www.scientificamerican.com/article/london-taxi-memory/

I believe this is the actual paper being discussed:
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3268356/

Gisteron - that is a great thread but I hardly think the topic is 'done' . . . I'm sure you didn't mean it but your post comes across as rather dismissive of a topic worthy of discussion!

I wrote something in relations to this for Just Jedi a little while back. Nothing extensive or "Study heavy" just a quick blerp.

It's a good subject to study/research and learn about. :)

Initiate: Examine Your Habits

"You might of heard the statement “Human beings are creatures of habit.” and this is true. Habit's, are a series of behaviors and actions that gets repeated over and over again and they develop based on our life experiences, the things we are exposed to, those small and big influences that determines how you, as an individual, act in your every day normal lives.

As a child you develop a habit of routine, influenced and set upon you by your parents. These routines are meant to give you a healthy start on life (And to give your parents a bit of sanity along the way ;) )

At first, these behaviors of routine can be difficult to learn and adapt to. Like waking up at 6am in the morning every day to get your kid off to school, or you off to work.But once you develop a habit from repeated practice, your conscious mind hands the duty of remembrance, willpower and training over to your subconscious mind and it slowly becomes a natural reaction, so ingrained that it just becomes a natural behavior. It may even feel as if you have no control over these habits, or is a thing you cannot live without. Smoking...for example.

No matter how automatic these habits have become in your life, they all started with a Conscious Mind. A time when you decided to take part in the action and repeat the process until it was handed off onto the Subconscious Mind.

Habits can be good and wholesome to your lifestyle, like developing a habit to exercise and eat healthy.Meditation Routines, or even that little hobby you enjoy that lifts your spirit such as writing, collections, art, gardening, or hiking the trails. Or they can be bad, bringing stress, pain and poor health into your lifestyle.

Just like any habit learned, however.You can consciously chose to replace the habit with a new one, or let it fade from lack of use. For, just like with anything in life...if left alone and forgotten, it will fade from memory. But you must first make a conscious decision to act upon it, and repeat the process until it nestles safely into your subconscious mind.

As Jedi, we train and learn self discipline In order to create healthy habits that will benefit our minds, bodies and spirit as well as set the foundations that will allow us in helping others do the same.

*Bows*

Thank you :) I find it similar to the OP topic in that our mind creates a series of Nuro Networks based on the behavior of Habbit. Which is why we can change our network....so long as we consciously create a habbit for our subconscious mind to master :) Its all quite fascinating ^_^ (Even if I get lost in the sciencey verbiage part :-p )

Fascinating, Arkayik, and hopeful. I find myself rooting for Deborah (the woman profiled in the first part of the article), who magnificently overcame a very burdensome situation. I hope these discoveries will benefit many more people.

One of the articles linked to the page you shared provided an equally optimistic description of how learning one or more foreign languages has been found to significantly deter the mental decline so many face as they age. Reading this stuff has provided me with a great deal of cheer. :-)

I posted a few videos in that thread that relate to this topic. They're good ones, too.
Thanks for starting this back up again. I'm really interested to see what other have to say and share about it. :)
