As much as stargazing brings me intrigue and imaginative bliss, I have much the similar reaction to discovering how this mental computer I have been given makes interpretations of the universe surrounding it. Turns out, whether it be the grand universe, the microcosmos, or the intracosmos, the principles are primarily the same. Quantum physics elucidates the fact that all matter is really energy. The energy encountered is the same as well; magnetic and electrical. The interesting molecules providing the stimulas in the intracosmos of our brain are called neuropeptides. Although they are not actually thoughts, they are the messengers to our body’s functions and reactions to the thought’s transmissions. Neuropeptides have been actively linked to such mental activities like energy levels, pain and pleasure reception, and the ability to solve problems. They are present in automatic bodily functions that regulate our immune system. Appetite, affective behavior, inflammation, the cellular regeneration of the skin in relation to scars and wrinkles are but a few of the credits given to these busy molecules. The one I find the most fascinating though is the formation of memories. Our brain has a great capacity to store these memories the neuropeptides shoot off to the concious and unconcious parts of the mind. The unconcious portion definitely receives the majority of the memories stored, silently tuck away in the inner recesses, awaiting a perceptual ques to be retrieved. Some of the negative ones: fear, hate, jealousy end up depressing the immune system. Conversely, positive memories: happiness, forgiveness, love, selflessness, have the opposite effect of boosting the immune system. Within the intracosmos of the mind, you contribute to your body’s health by keeping the positive memories flowing.
