The Most Important Things to Remember From this Tutorial


“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.

The finest emotion of which we are capable is the mystic emotion. Herein lies the germ of all art and all true science. Anyone to whom this feeling is alien, who is no longer capable of wonderment and lives in a state of fear is a dead man.”

(Albert Einstein)


The 'green zone' for the mind is a healthy balance between extremes: 

No growth (decay)

Healthy growth

Unhealthy growth (eg cancer)

Relaxation only (apathy)


Stress only (anxiety)

No learning

Natural learning

Forced learning

Weak immunity

Strong immunity

Hyper immunity (eg allergies)

No interests

Healthy interests



Balanced mind



We now know that an optimal intelligence requires the following factors to be developed in this order to optimal condition. The main networks controlling them are listed in brackets: 

  • Your physical senses and the brain’s physical condition [mainly N 1 & 2]
  • Your attention and orientation [mainly N1 & 2]
  • Your imagination and association skills [mainly N3]
  • Your perception [mainly N1, 2 & 3]
  • Your memory [mainly N3]
  • Your emotional stability [mainly N3]
  • Your creativity and ability to use tools [mainly N4]
  • Your intellect / IQ [mainly N5]
  • Your prediction, planning and strategy skills [mainly N6]


All these factors are dependent on their networks. You can have a look at where they are on the picture we introduced them in above. As we work through the tutorials we’ll cover each network and each of these factors in the correct order to develop your intelligence to its optimal potential:


N1 processes sensory data about material, physical things and holds sensorimotor (‘muscle’) memories. It plays a main part in attention, self-care, and perception.


N2 processes all basic survival behaviors and holds spatial memories. It plays a main part in alertness, observation, orientation, navigation and perception.


N3 processes translation, relay and continuity and holds eidetic memories. It plays a main part in concentration, association, imagination, perception, all memory, communication, empathy and emotional stability.


N4 processes procedures and holds long term procedural memories. It plays a main part in your creativity, invention, timing, construction, interaction, humor, language, dexterity and ability to use tools.


N5 processes facts and figures and holds long term declarative memories. It plays a main part in analysis, computation, logic, deconstruction, language, self esteem, resource assessment and intellect.


N6 processes prediction and strategy, and uses working memory. It plays a main part in planning, association, morality, spirituality, judgment, problem solving and decisions.


And we now have the golden rules to guide our steps:

  1. If the brain doesn’t get what it needs, the mind won’t do what you want
  2. Behave as though it’s happening and the brain will think it’s happening
  3. You will become more like whatever you are surrounded by
  4. Cells that fire together wire together
  5. Know yourself
  6. Always do things in the right order
  7. Use it in the right way or lose it
  8. From time to time, you will forget all this


Besides, we also learned that anxiety was not only at the heart of the problem but was the very problem and that the best gift you can give to others around you is an example of how to live intelligently and well without anxiety, and you should never ‘preach’ to others and never try to coerce them “for their own good”. Intelligence includes respect for other minds and understanding what should be under your control and what should not.
