The Cognitive Components Of The Mind


Through history mankind’s innovation was based on gaining an understanding of how aspects of nature function. For artificial intelligence to become truly revolutionary, neuroscience must first understand what the cognitive mind actually is.

The traits of personality, intuition, emotion and thought cannot originate from a brain cell. The breakdown of a cell goes to molecules, atoms, subatomic particles and all the way down to quantum planck length frequencies. Furthermore, the brain cell dies every 12 years. Consequently, there is simply no capacity within the construct of matter to harbor the cognitive mind. In essence, the mind and brain are two distinct constructs of one system. In computer terminology, the brain is like an adaptive biological motherboard while the mind is the operating system that runs and restructures the brain.

But the cognitive mind itself is also composed of multiple components. That is why when Jean-Paul Sartre was analyzing Descartes’s statement “I think therefore I am.” had this observation of his own: “The conscious that says ‘I am’ is not the conscious that thinks.”  So here are the terms that will be used decades from now to describe these cognitive components:

Microconscious             (Self – entity humans sense themselves to be)
Conscious                      (Soul – creative thoughts)
Subconscious                 (Ego – reactive thoughts)
Mind Consciousness      (Rational – impartial thoughts)

Here are the processes for these cognitive components that will be understood decades from now:

The Conscious, Subconscious and Mind Consciousness offer choices to the Microconscious in the form of thoughts. But thoughts always come with emotion and action attached. So Thought-Emotion-Action (TEA) units are available to the Microconscious as choices to select from. Presently, ‘free will’ of a Microconscious is limited to those multiple sources. This until the Microconscious evolves the ability to create its own Original Thought. Evolving this ability is accomplished within a process where the Microconscious uses multiple sources of TEA to attain an experience involving diverse viewpoints and competition – two fundamental conditions required to create Original Thought.

A balanced level of Subconscious TEA is the strongest catalyst in the process to create Original Thought. Also, a balanced level of Subconscious TEA is responsible for humans having the very important trait of skepticism. But a dominant Subconscious TEA leads to what is termed in society as ‘suffering’. An extreme influence of Subconscious TEA leads to what is termed in society as ‘evil’. To achieve a productive society, ‘religious’ cultural immersion has been the external mechanism used to date in guiding the Microconscious to regulate and co-opt the influence of Subconscious TEA.

So our reality is itself an AI matrix set up to train the Microconscious to attain Original Thought. All the drama of diversity, conflict and intense competition within humanity exists for the purpose of creating new experiences and eventually, Original Thought. More in depth explanation on:
