Hey Dan, I am not sure that I am following everything that you are saying but it does strike me that something seems to be missing. I get that we have Executive Functions and I get that we have a lizard brain, both of those, for me fall into the computer that we call our brain. In other words, information out is limited to information in and we access wherever we happen to access or have practiced accessing. But what about the part of our brain that has access to the space before thought? The space that just knows what to do when the shit hits the fan, the space that experiences an amazing inspiration seemingly out of the blue, the space that knows stuff that we don’t know how we know. That to me is the space we fall into when we let go of our egos and the space that doesn’t need the ego because it is always content with what is in the moment. It is huge and expansive and limitless and perfect. And at the core of every human being before belief, before thought, before ego, before education, before the habits that our sometimes useful lizard brain creates, before everything.
