Helen Thomson Ý 9 Free read Unthinkable What the World's Most Extraordinary Brains Can Teach Us About Our Own Review ã 9 Our brains are far stranger than we think We take for granted that we can remember feel emotion navigate empathize and understand the world around us but how would our lives change if these abilities were dramatically enhanced or disappeared overnightHelen Thomson has spent years traveling the world tracking down incredibly rare brain disorders In Unthinkable she tells the s. I could see the beauty in everything I had all these thoughts in my head that I d never had before I suddenly had these emotions and cares and worries I could taste the femininity inside of me cTommy described his brain as having gone into overdrive If I go for a walk inside my brain I see all this information he said Angles languages structures mathematics wild colourful pictures Everything I look at sparks six memories or emotions or smells they re each spinning in my mind just for a moment and then it s like one of those thoughts crashes against another and that sparks six different thoughts and then the corners of those thoughts touch and create six I m constantly bombarded with patterns and details and information and faces It s like walking inside a corridor of endless endless information My brain is like bees in a hive he continued barely taking a breath In the middle all you see are honeycomb cells covered in clingfilm When you stroke those little honeycomb cells lots of other cells break out from it like a lightning flash touching a brain cell And from that cell comes a volcano emitting Fairy Liuid bubbles with billions and billions of images They re pouring out like Mount Etna they never stop Each of these bubbles contains another million images That s a split second in my mind I feel like I ve been shown just how endless the brain is It s inconceivable we use such a tiny percentage of it c My brain is filled with endless details but I m too uneducated to understand all the information that s popping up inside there It s telling me there are all these different languages all this knowledge pinpricks of it microscopic hints of it all so that if I wanted to use it it would be there for me to use I feel like I could talk Italian if the right thing triggered it it s all within me I feel like we ve all got sweeping talents in our brain but we don t know they are there because we ve never been forced to use them That s my vision of what I see in my brain cHis mind travelled rapidly from one concept to the next his thoughts turned on a sixpence cIt s not often that we take the time to consider our personality who we are and how we make our choices Perhaps it s because we tend to think our personalities are innate that they are what they are I can t help wondering whether knowing about the mechanisms that help to build them could help us navigate life a little successfully Perhaps even make us all a little happier cIt s a delightful concept and one that we would do well to remember That our brain does not exist in isolation We discovered that it relies on our bodies earlier in this book but its reach stretches further still It extends beyond the boundaries of our skull and enters the bodies of those around us In that way we are all connected with each other When we smile at someone we leave a tiny imprint on that person s brain Somewhere deep within their motor cortex their brain is smiling back c
