What the Bleep do we know?

The brain is made of tiny nerve cells called neurons. These neurons have tiny branches that reach out and connect to other neurons to form a neural net. Each place where they connect is integrated into a thought or a memory. Now the brain builds up all it's concepts by the law of associative memory. For example, ideas, thoughts and feelings are all constructed and interconnected in this neural net. And all have a possible relationship with one another. The concept and the feeling of love, for instance, is stored in this vast neural net. But we build the concept of love from many other different ideas. Some people have love connected to disappointment. When they think about love,they experience the memory of pain, sorrow, anger and even rage. Rage may be linked to hurt, which may be linked to a specific person, which then is connected back to love. Who is in the driver's seat when we control our emotions or when we respond to our emotions. We know physiologically that nerve cells that fire together, wire together. If you practice something over and over again, those nerve cells have a longterm relationship. If you get angry on a daily basis... If you get frustrated on a daily basis... If you suffer on a daily basis... If you give reason for the victimization in your life, you're re-wiring and re-integrating that neural net on a daily basis, and that neural net now has a longterm relationship with all those other nerve cells, called an identity. We also know that nerve cells that don't fire together no longer wire together. They lose their longterm relationship. Because everytime we interrupt the thought process that produces a chemical response in the body, everytime we interrupt it, those nerve cells that are connected to each other start breaking the longterm relationship. When we start interrupting and observing, not by stimulus and response, and that automatic reaction but by observing the effect it takes, then we are no longer the body-mind conscious emotional person that's responding to it's environment as if it is automatic. There's a part of the brain call the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is like a little mini-factory and it is a place that assembles certain chemicals that matches certain emotions that we experience. Those particular chemicals are called peptides. They're small-chain amino acid sequences. The body's basically a carbon unit that makes about 20 different amino acids altogether, that formulate it's physical structure. The body is a protein producing machine. In the hypothalamus, we take small-chain proteins called peptides and we assemble them into certain neural peptides or neural hormones that match the emotional states that we experience on a daily basis. So there are chemicals for anger, and there are chemicals for sadness, and there are chemicals for victimization. There are chemicals for lust. There's a chemical that matches every emotional state that we experience and the moment we experience that emotional state in our body or in our brain that hypothalamus will immediately assemble the peptide and then releases it to the pituitary and to the bloodstream. The moment it makes it into the bloodstream, it finds its way to different centers or different parts of the body. Now every single cell in the body has these receptors on the outside. One cell can have thousands of receptors studding its surface, kind of opening up to the outside world. And when a peptide docks on a cell, it literally, like a key going into a lock, sits on the receptor surface and attaches to it and it kind of moves the receptor, kind of like a doorbell buzzing, it sends a signal into the cell. Cell: It's party time!!! A receptor that has a peptide sitting in it, changes the cell in many ways. It sets off a whole cascade of biochemical events, some of which, wind up making changes in the actual nucleus of the cell. The cell is definitely alive and each cell has a consciousness. Particularly if we define consciousness as the point of view of an observer. There is always the perspective of the cell. In fact, the cell is the smallest unit of consciousness in the body. Cell: I'm hungry! The definition of an addiction is something really simple. It's something that you can't stop. Cell: Make me supper please! I hurt. We bring to ourselves, situatons that will fulfill the biochemical cravings of the cells of our body by creating situations that meet our chemical needs. Cell crying: This always happens to me. Why? Why? An addict will always need a little bit more in order to get a rush or a high of what they're looking for chemically. Lady (with wine on her dress) yelling: Don't tell me to calm down. You're always following me around. So my definition really means that, if you can't control your emotional state you must be addicted to it. Lady crying: Oh, I knew this was going to happen.
