Society is a mirror of the human brain. The brain provides the only common frame of reference from which to make sense of your authentic self.
Despite the unprecedented magnificence of the brain’s highly interconnected 85 billion neurons – it has inherent flaws in its fast initial nonconscious judgments and slower conscious decision making effectiveness.
This context helps you to come to terms with the harsh reality, that “bias and self-interest” is the brain’s baseline state. And that the expectation for your own and other people’s alignment, should be achievement and outcomes over and above this inevitable self-interest baseline.
These biases are not your destiny. The Brain 1-2-4 framework of strengths and limitations, provides you with a realistic personalized profile to select and train the new habits that are most meaningful to you.
Mastering your brain and training to shape your self is a revolutionary act that can vastly improve your sense of purpose and your life.
What if The Brain Revolution also has the capacity to change the foundations of societies? The brain is the only biological reality of a core frame of reference that all humans have in common. Culture, religion, nationalism, the 99-1% capital and opportunity gap – all highlight differences between us.
This commonality may help shift the fear-based cue triggers and shadows of “Them versus Us” that has wreaked havoc on human history, towards the more insightful brain reality of “Us.” A brain-based meritocracy would help to narrow the voracious greed and short-term actions between the 99%-1% wealth gap that recurs repeatedly across nations.
