From the observations I have made of human nature, its clear to me that most of the neural processing is happening in the subconscious mind.
This subconscious mind is getting programmed by the process of mimesis and hence whom we are in contact with is playing a key role in how we are as a human being and how we do behave in society.
Techniques to program ones own subconscious mind include(but are not limited to):
a) The law of averages – You are the average of the 5 to 7 people closest to you and you behave in a similar manner as you learn from them.
b) The type and duration of the multimedia content we consume.
