"The stories we imagine change us profoundly. ... We can use our brain to change our brain internally." #readingToday
The key is this: the stories we imagine change us profoundly. Through imaging stories, we can create perceptions, and thus alter our future perceptual-based behaviors. This—arguably—is a point of consciousness, if not the point: to imagine experiences without the risk of enacting them. And not only in the now, but about events in the past. Which means, parallel to our trial-and-error, empirical physical engagement in the real world, we can use our brain to change our brain internally.
