    But even still it's odd that they end up at 'opposite' ends of the spectrum...but then again at the end of the video you go into zooming in on waves and how they're similar then. Fascinating.

    How might you explain the Buddhists being in a high Gama wave when they meditate but other people being in a theta wave when in deep meditation? Actually I just answered my own question it's been shown that lots of practice with medication actually changes the way the brain is... neurologically speaking

    Epiphany An epiphany is an experience of a sudden and striking realization. Generally the term is used to describe a scientific breakthrough or religious or philosophical discovery, but it can apply in any situation in which an enlightening realization allows a problem or situation to be understood from a new and deeper perspective.

    Technically the way you say orange makes it rhyme with any word ending in -inge. You say or-inge. That rhymes with cringe, hinge, binge etc. The issue with orange not rhyming with anything only arises if you say "ornge" - the single syllable version. Nothing rhymes with "ornge". Lots of words rhyme with "or-inge". It's a technicality due to accent but it makes a big difference.

    Yes, I've gotten good at doing this via sleep. It's much easier to figure out the answer to a problem in this state, the answer comes instantaneously and seems like a stroke of genius when it happens. You need to linger in the area between sleep and awake. You will note that you are asleep but you can think normally. You might even hear yourself snoring. Then think about a problem you're having or a question you want answered. There's a strong chance the answer will pop into your head and you'll think it's like the smartest thing you ever heard

From what I learned it can seem to even split eels or even viruses. That's just my opinion though. I wouldn't want to over excite people that think this happens in wombs as well. After all that would need scientific proof. I suppose it takes a nice vacuum tub to get things settled in. I often find my best thoughts in water.

    You can easily understand how an aha moment works if you read how the mind system works in The Mind Illuminated by John Yates (my favorite book ❤️). Being a brain neurologist, he says consciousness is the top-level communication between "brain departments", but when you are using it to find the solution you point it at all the 'noob' assumptions first, going where you would imagine the solution would be. But when you give up for a moment, that's when your consciousness is free, and consciousness is the only way for top level brain departments to communicate with each other, so when you give them a little space, that's when they work their magic. I don't know if I'm explaining this well, but this book changed my life. 🤟 Thoughty2, you 're awesome!
