Conditions for increasing its abilities
October 14th 2013
The human brain is built to absorb infinitely more knowledge than it is given to take in at present, but that is only possible on certain conditions. The brain’s capacities depend on many factors. First, there are physiological factors such as breathing and nutrition, and it is also necessary to avoid tensions. But the most important factor is our reason for acquiring knowledge – what we want to do with the knowledge we are acquiring. You should study for noble, disinterested reasons, so that your knowledge may be of benefit to others. Those who learn in order to impose themselves on others, to exploit them or strut around in front of them, limit their brain’s capacities, regardless of what they have studied.
