The Impact of a high MQ [Moral Intelligence] on the Human Brain - A series [Part 5]:

When the ancients teach that our minds ought not to be ensnared by earthly things what do they mean? This presentation was put together in support of a discussion about how the performance of the Temporal Lobe System [in the human brain] can be made effective by the influence of Absolute Morality.

  • “So Brethren you must be grinding, or you will not have the flour. You will not be able to extemporize good thinking unless you have been in the habit of thinking and feeding your mind with abundant and nourishing food. Work hard at every available moment. Store your minds very richly, and then, like merchants with crowded warehouses, you will have goods ready fro your customers, and having arranged your good things upon the shelves of your mind, you will be able to hand them down at any time without the laborious process of going to market, sorting folding and preparing. I do not believe that any man can be successful in continuously maintaining the gift of extemporaneous speech, except by ordinarily using far more labour than is usual with those who write and commit their discourses to memory. Take it as a rule without exception, that to be able to overflow spontaneously you must be full” [Spurgeon, Lectures to my Students, Zondervan Publishing House, 1954, p. 145]
    - You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3
    - You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.” Matthew 16:23
    - Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. Romans 1:28
    - I see another law at work members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. Romans 7:23
    - When I applied my mind to know wisdom and to observe man’s labor on earth — his eyes not seeing sleep day or night — Ecclesiastes 8:16
    - The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; Romans 8:6
    - Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
    - I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. 1 Corinthians 1:10
    - The man who has settled the matter in his own mind, who is under no compulsion but has control over his own will, and who has made up his mind not to marry the virgin — this man also does the right thing. 1 Corinthians 7:37
    - So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my mind. 1 Corinthians 14:15
    - Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. Philippians 3:19

  • The Brain’s Doorway [Entorrhinal Cortex]
    The Hose [Hippocampus - memory 48-72 hours (some say more than a week??)]
    The Thinker [Corpus Callosum analyzes all info in hippocampus][develops freewill, if attitude bad, rejects as heat energy within 72 hours, or delete all in hippocampus], to get to “The Balance”[Homeostasis]
    The Brain’s GOVERNOR - to achieve HOMEOSTASIS, is these three: SYNAPTIC PLASTICITY, NEUROGENESIS, and CELL DEATH
    The Feeler Library/@Intersection [Amygdala influences the cortex - what stories do your “books” tell? anger fear doubt]
    The Responder [Thalamus and Hypothalamus][Endocrine]
    The Forest Trees [Memory networks of existing memory]
    The auditors [feedback loop system (cybernetics)]
    The “strainer” (network of memories and Limbic system operate as a filter sifting out) - Ask, Answer, and Discuss
    The Body’s Music [Neuropeptides - molecules of emotion]
    The Guards [Receptors - change with toxicity and vv]
    The Enemy [Stress hormones, CRH, ACTH, Cortisol, Adrenaline?] cytokines, virus & other foreign neurochemicals
    The Bank [Cortex -changes in 4d] The Engine - Heart
    The Little Brain [Cerebellum] - Coordination (thought and physical), speed, legibility etc. - more than 50% of the brain’s neurons, only 10% of its size
    The Gear Shifter [ACG] - greases behavior, allows flexibility, cognitive flexibility, excessive activity due to low serotonin [rigidity, anxious, oppositional]. when the ACG is not working well people will tend to be stuck on negative thoughts and behaviors.
    The Boss [PFC] - the organizer [when PFC is working normally we are thoughtful, empathetic, organized, and have clear goals. When the PFC is not working well it associates with impulsive and inconsistent behavior [see ADD motivations].
    The Integrator [the Basal Ganglia - surround the deep Limbic System] - integrates feelings, thoughts, and movements. When the BG works too hard, it can result in headaches and intestinal problems, and muscle tension. When the BG are low in activity they affect motivation.

However, although every attempt has been made to represent them well, it is not our intention to suggest that what we have set out fully agrees with their views]
  • TLS - The WHAT Pathway

    - Dr Beck - three basic wrong beliefs that determine the amount of toxic emotions in us
    - I MUST do well
    - You MUST treat me well
    - The world MUST be easy
    [there are many other derivations of these three wrong beliefs, such as “Nobody loves me”, but on examination they all relate more or less to these three, or, “I am the Problem” - why don;t we become “There’s NO problem, let us sort it out” type of parents and leaders]


    Hebrews 4:12-14 “For the word of God is living [zao - to be alive] and active [energes - effective]. Sharper [tomos - cutting] than any double-edged [distomos - dyo - two, tomos - mouth] sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts [enthymesis - thought, reflection, design, idea (creativity, perception, muse)] and attitudes [ennoia - en- inside, among, with, during, because of, nous - mind, thinking, understanding, insiht, “to open the mind”] of the heart [kardia - seat of thought and emotions]. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account [logos - word, spoken or written]. Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.”

  • Calming the Brain’s Emotional system down:

    - Sleep
    - Vitamins and supplements and proper brain food
    - No caffeine
    - No late TV
    - No toxins through negativity
    - The Word of God
    - The same attitude as Jesus
    - How to calm the brains emotions: F.I.L.G.A.P [faith (Hebrews 11), instruction (Proverbs 13, 2 Timothy 3), love (1 Corinthians 13), generosity/giving (2 Corinthians 8), attitude (Phi 2), prayer (Luke 11, Ephesians 6)]
    - How to respond to difficult circumstances: in F.E.A.S.T [faith, enemy is wrong, attitude positive, speak not, think]
    and not in F.A.M.I.N.E [Fear [1 Jo 4, James 4], anger [James 1:20, 1 Tim 2:8, Col 3:8, Eph 4:26-31, 2 Cor 12:20 vs Mark 3:5], murmuring [Jo 6:43, Jo 6:61, 1 pe 4:9], inconsistent [jo 6 crowd, jo 2:25 “he knew”], negativity [heb 3-4 “because of their unbelief”, mark 11:23 “if you do not doubt”], exiting [jo 6 “they left”]]

    The Brain’s Function
    - the DOUBLE Brain - left and right - are opposite... detail to big vs big to detail... cerebral vs creative
    - The Brain’s natural STRAINER [MEMORY NETWORKS, CORPUS CALLOSUM, LIMBIC SYSTEM] helps the MAGIC BREEZE
    - allows 15% to 35% in - if toxic, it does not connect, or connects to what is wrong and builds that
    - connectivity through discipline, study, and conscious engaging with information the STRAINER is activated
    - not understanding info builds TOXICITY - use: ASK/ANSWER/DISCUSS
    - what is not connected is swept away by GLIALS [VACUUM CLEANER]
    - all comes down to FAITH and FEAR [fear builds negativity and toxicity]
    - compare MATTHEW 7 [ask/answer/discuss], with PROVERBS 24 [wisdom/understanding/knowledge], with EXODUS 29 [ears, thumb, big toe]
