Description

Sperry’s procedure was a success in that it accomplished his original purpose; the severity of the patients’ seizures was tremendously reduced.

Rather, it is thought that creates the illusion of a continuous self – and that this illusion is at the root of all human suffering. However, with the sides disconnected in these epileptic patients, scientists could test each on its own and gain insight into the functional differences between the left and right sides of the brain. The left-brain interpreter also creates and sustains a collection of categorical thoughts based on judgments and groups them together as likes and dislikes, ideas of right and wrong, and mental models of how things are supposed to be.And in so doing, she came to the conclusion that if she could find this middle ground, surely everyone else could too! Now, Niebauer takes a deeper dive, offering exercises and practices you can do right now to experience the state of “no self” and its benefits. An interesting and easy to understand book for anyone wanting to find out more about how the mind works. This is just what the left brain does, which is only a problem when we are so identified with the left brain that we think it’s us.

While there’s nothing wrong with seeking to make sense of the world — certainly, all people are trying to do that! This fits right in with the conventional physicalist interpretation of consciousness, and so my initial reaction was, "So what else is new? It makes you question decisions and patterns of thinking you have always made without much contemplation.

When you refer to yourself by saying “I,” you mean the consciousness that it housed in the physical body belonging to you. Having already read the original book, I recognized the briefest recapitulation of ideas from it in the workbook. Even though the left-brain interpreter is always on and cannot be turned off, once it is recognized—or that is to say, once we become aware of its constant interpretations—a new awareness of ourselves and the world begins. Because if the definition of chair exists only as a construct in our minds, the same must be true for our sense of self. This question is answered in the No Self No Problem Workbook, as there is one explicit reference to Ruiz.
