Gut Brain, Gut Feelings, and a Greek Philosopher.
In my last post I talked about the invention of the mobius strip 150 years ago. I described how I was so struck by it when I first saw it that I named my company after it: Mobius Transformations. I briefly mentioned that, to me and to the work that I do, this funny little band of paper with a half-twist in it has an enormous metaphorical meaning.
In this post I’d like to detail some of the more important aspects of that meaning. I’ll detail how they all relate to the building of an amazing mindset enabled by the enervation of the gut brain that, for you and for the sake of your future, will be as solid as a rock.
The Human Mobius
If you look closely at a mobius strip the most astounding thing you’ll discover about it is that, while there was once two sides and two edges on that flat strip of paper, there is now only one. This in essence is the main qualifier for the mobius strip becoming our mascot. It involves this dualness becoming singleness and by extension it suggests the relationship between how the human ‘thinks” and “feels”.
Side Note: In case you may have missed it my main interest is the proper construction of your mindset. My passion is the discovery of a little known phenomenon involving the gut brain that gives your mindset an unusual strength that resists all ongoing negative factors working against your success. I believe this type of strength is an absolute requirement for any entrepreneur today especially given the uncertain times we are now living in.
“I believe that the center for thought lies in the heart and that the brain helps cool the body” -Aristotle 384-322 BC
This quote has always interested me since it seems to go against today’s prevailing tradition that the brain is king above all. If it’s true then we might have to re-think the way we think.
Aristotle, who was personally involved in the training of Alexander the Great, clearly indicated that the duality as it exists in man, is something that he was looking at with great wonderment.
