60 Minutes CBS America TV great memories
Perhaps you watched this episode of 60 Minutes and was intrigued with the segment of the 5or 6 people being interviewed that displayed perfect memories. I know it had the medical and psychology experts in the piece all torqued up and excited over their research. Typical of normal thinkers doing and leading the research they are naturally ignorant of the real fact of life and the real functioning of the human brain. If they even had a clue to how these folks were doing all of this so well, they would also have very key to man's mind. It is all picture thoughts. We ALL use picture thoughts and they are the default human thought process and they explain every single detail of psychology and the human condition. They explain the great memories these people display :They explain Einstein and they explain dyslexia and stuttering and everything else from MR/DD to normal people. These Picture thoughts operate below the surface of the mind all the time and are shortcutted and 'forgotton' if once can consider him or her self "normal" . Naturally they have never been in a text book before and probably never will be as humans are just not smart enough to be stupid.
Of Course as all 'good research' does they stick the subject in the brain wave machine and map their unique brains. If research knew what to look for ,what questions to ask and what the brain is really doing to start with they would not ask such stupid questions or draw some of the wild conclusions they do when they assume some of their judgements. Of course, peer review a popular safeguard in research is faulty itself as new and bold ideas are not approved thus the root of real honest progress are for ever hidden in plain sight.
The show offered the question could the discovery of the perfect memories shed light on Alzheimer's? Of Course it could if psychology even knew what what it was doing to start with. Alzheimer's is nothing more than the picture process part of the brain dying off from non use. Humans have evolved backward from picture thought back down to a lesser state and thus the picture thought the internal ones that really make us work have been made redundant and useless as we have as humans shortcuttted all of our thoughts to non thinking instant answers. Doing this we have not use our core thought so like anything you don't use you loose. I would guess those with Alzheimer's were the real non thinkers in our society that perhaps did nothing more than watch television and hit the remote control button. They probably were not great thinkers and never read a book or thought about a thing or had deep thoughts. Not only it seems did remote control kill television it also helped kill the deep picture thought process that humans still did. It helped make sure the human mind continued on a downward slope as the short cutted thoughts we develop to make us normal actually make the thought that created them useless as well.
There are next 1000 chapters in Psychology locked in the depths of picture thought and autism but since we are the very retards being researched normal humans will never see the light. So much for progress. Rich Shull on the Blog Pre Rain Man Autism.
