THE BRAIN IS AN UNRELIABLE WITNESS, THAT IS TRYING TO INFORM YOU OF REALITY

The action of solely relying on the brain for information, can cause severe mis-steps. Thinking you see what you see and know what you know, without hard evidence can lead to false claims or even actions based-off false claims. We sometimes jump the gun or hesitate based off the information the brain perceives to receive.


A wisegeek.com article written by Page Coleman on December 1, 2020. Talked about the brains function is to take in information from its various receptors and translate it electronically to an impulse for the body to perform or react to. Coleman states, "The role of the brain in perception is to process signals from various sense organs and give them meaning."


We attach meaning based on how our brain interprets the information received. It is sufficient to say that eyewitness accounts are not always reliable because each brain interprets actions differently and although the eyes of various people may see the same action, each mind registered the data differently. In an article titled, The Trouble with Eyewitness Identification Testimony in Criminal Cases, The author, states, "Although witnesses can often be very confident that their memory is accurate when identifying a suspect, the malleable nature of human memory and visual perception makes eyewitness testimony one of the most unreliable forms of evidence." (Hurley, G. nd). The bottom line is to always be more aware than what your brain is registering through your eyes.


There is an old saying "look under the hood before you buy the car." Be totally observant and understand that when the brain registers something, it is always subject to interpretation. We must understand that aspect, relate it to ourselves and then open up to further interpretations. You may see a clearer picture once you view the issue in your mind prior to mere reaction based off visualization. There is a difference between seeing and looking. The best part of finding your better life is learning the difference.
