A Mindset Paradox

According to Dictionary.com a paradox is:

“a statement or proposition that seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth.”

One day over 50 years ago a group of physicists were talking over lunch at the Los Alamos National Laboratory located out in the New Mexico desert.  The conversation got around to the strong possibility that extra-terrestrial civilizations exist in the universe.

One of the scientists Enrico Fermi wondered aloud: if indeed the conditions were favorable for the existence of extra-terrestrials why have they not been identified or, at the very least, their radio transmissions detected?

This one penetrating question sparked a debate that is still going on today, in and outside of scientific circles.

It’s a great question but it’s not got a lot to do with the subject of mindset has it?

A Silly Little Paper Band and A Phenomenon – Part 2

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.

 


AristotleI 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.
