The mind is perhaps the most complex thing in the universe. Use it well and we can be wise, and help make a good life for our self and those around us. Use it poorly and...
Yet we spend little time, if any, trying to understand our mind and how to better use it. In this book, we explore the mind, so that we may better understand it, and thus better use it. Explorations are offered throughout the book to help you, the reader, to explore the mind yourself. When you explore something yourself (rather than just read the results of others' explorations) your understanding will be much deeper, you will better remember what has been explored, and most importantly, you will be more likely to utilize the knowledge that you gain - in this case, to better use your mind and to have a better life.
In the initial explorations, you will discover what features you have in your mind. Importantly, we are not exploring the physical features of our brains (such as neurons, the cortex, thalamus, amygdala... ). In this book, we restrict our explorations to those features in our minds that we can personally explore, such as our thoughts, memories and feelings.
Next you will discover humps - what I consider to be the most important features of the mind. We all have humps, many of them. Mostly we are unaware of them, and unaware of what enormous effects they have on us. Understand the characteristics of humps, and you understand the characteristics of your mind!
Next you will discover why it is important to know about your humps. You discover that your humps shape what you think, feel, desire, dislike, look at, expectations, say and do.
Finally, you explore other humps and how they shape your humps. Other humps include the humps of other people, the humps in your cultures and the humps (or patterns) in the world around you. You will discover how these other humps shape your own humps, and thus play a large part in shaping your mind and your reality.
