In the early 1980s, Dr. Benjamin Libet of the University of California in San Francisco, made a landmark world changing discovery. He used electroencephalography (EEG) to record the brain activity of volunteers who had been told to make a spontaneous movement. With the help of a precise timer that the volunteers were asked to read at the moment they became aware of the urge to act, Dr. Libet found there was a ~200-500 millisecond delay, on average, between this urge and the movement itself.
But the EEG recordings also revealed a signal that appeared in the brain even earlier – 550 milliseconds, on average – before the action. Called the readiness potential. It suggests that the brain prepares to act well before we are conscious of the urge to move.
Thus the conscious mind is fed “reality” by the sub Conscious. The sub Conscious edits 98% of the input it receives from your senses and present a believable concept of the world. I spoke about this here: https://readmultiplex.com/2020/11/20/there-is-a-maximum-human-bandwidth-and-we-have-reached-it-every-computer-technology-moving-forward-is-impacted/. And as I pointed out above, the brain also reacts to all inputs and responds in most cases before you have even made your conscious choice. This all happens in a proven ~half second delay between the reaction of your conscious mind to any input. This ~half second delay is a very long period in time in reality when it comes to making choices as these delays set a cascade of events, that if really understood, are making you more into an observer of “you” then a controller of “you”.
The shock really comes when it is demonstrated that your subconscious recreates “time” in your mind so as to allow you to “believe” your conscious mind was in control the entire time.
This Bereitschaftspotential will change the entire world of technology.
