[Quote No.55553] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"Whether called an insight, epiphany, revelation, or flash of intuitive understanding, almost all people have had the experience of suddenly seeing an aspect of their functioning a totally new way -- often in a way that feels freeing or liberating. It doesn't happen very often, but when it does, it often helps us get 'unstuck' from an established, and not particularly productive, pattern." - Dr. Mardy Grothe

[Quote No.55563] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"After the initial critical learning period of youth is over, the areas of the brain that need to be 'turned on' to allow enhanced, long lasting learning [including associative memorizing] can only be activated when something important, surprising, or novel occurs, or if we make the effort to pay close attention [and focus intently]." - Dr. Norman Doidge

[Quote No.55565] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"One reason we can change our brains simply by imagining is that, from a neuroscientific point of view, imagining an act and doing it are not as different as they sound. When people close their eyes and visualize a simple object, such as the letter a, the primary visual cortex lights up, just as it would if the subjects were actually looking at the letter a. Brain scans show that in action and imagination many of the same parts of the brain are activated. That is why visualizing can improve performance. ...imagining an act engages the same motor and sensory programs that are involved in doing it. We have long viewed our imaginative life with a kind of sacred awe: as noble, pure, immaterial, and ethereal, cut off from our material brain. Now we cannot be so sure about where to draw the line between them. Everything your 'immaterial' mind imagines leaves material traces. Each thought alters the physical state of your brain synapses at a microscopic level. Each time you imagine moving your fingers across the keys to play the piano, you alter the tendrils in your living brain." - Dr. Norman Doidge
Quote from his book, ‘The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science’.

"[Skepticism is required to discover truth and grow wiser because...] For the most part we inherit our opinions. We are the heirs of habits and mental customs.

[Quote No.55702] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"[Skepticism of authority, custom, popularity and others' esteem are necessary in the search for Truth:] There are in fact four very significant stumbling blocks in the way of grasping the truth, which hinder every man however learned, and scarcely allow anyone to win a clear title to wisdom, namely, the example of weak and unworthy authority, longstanding custom, the feeling of the ignorant crowd, and the hiding of our own ignorance while making a display of our apparent knowledge." - Roger Bacon

What's far more important is having the will to prepare to win [i.e. learning, practicing, planning, etc.]!" - Bobby Knight

"It is a trite but true observation that examples work more forcibly on the mind than precepts. And if this be just in what is odious and blameable, it is more strongly so in what is amiable and praiseworthy. Here emulation most effectually operates upon us, and inspires our imitation in an irresistible manner. A good man therefore is a standing lesson to all his acquaintance, and of far greater use in that narrow circle than a good book." - Henry Fielding

"Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her." - Bible

[Quote No.56060] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"People want to learn to read and understand the book of nature and accommodate those lessons into the comprehensible world. [...] Art allows us to explore the universe through a filter of human perceptions and emotions. It examines how our senses access the world and what we can learn from this interaction – highlighting how people participate in and observe the universe around us. Art is very much a function of human beings, giving us a clearer view of our intuitions and how we as people perceive the world. Unlike science, it is not seeking objective truths that transcend human interactions. Art has to do with our physical and emotional responses to the external world, bearing directly on internal experiences, needs, and capacities that science might never reach. [...] Science, on the other hand, seeks objective and verifiable truth about the world. It is interested in the elements of which the universe is composed and how those elements interact... Practitioners of science attempt to keep human limitations or prejudices from clouding the picture so that they can trust themselves to obtain an unbiased understanding of reality. They do so with logic and collective observations. Scientists try to objectively figure out how things happen and what underlying physical framework could account for what they observe. [...] People's curiosity and the ability to make progress toward satisfying this hunger for information make humanity very special indeed. We are the one species equipped to ask questions and systematically chip away to find the answers. We question, we interact, we communicate, we hypothesize, we make abstractions, and in all of this we end up with a richer view of the universe and our place within." - Lisa Randall
Harvard particle physicist and cosmologist. Quote from her book,'Knocking on Heaven's Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World'.
