Sugar and Concentration

This is just my opinion as to why we see so many kids on ADD medication, etc. and it’s based on the personal progress I’ve made described here:

One of the things that I found interesting about my eyes getting so much better is that I can feel the work my body / energy is doing on them and the corresponding brain connection, I realize that the degeneration of that area of my body before was causing “Noise” and that source of noise caused considerable “Distraction”.

And I think that’s the root of why we see so many kids on ADD medication, etc. They sugar themselves up to the point where it starts causing a lot of inflammation and damage within the body.

This in turn creates an overwhelming amount of signaling within the body as it’s trying to coordinate repair and thus it’s hard for them to concentrate.

And also depending on the body type feel.

In other words the noise from the inflammation and corresponding repairs the body is doing to itself overwhelms the bodies senses and what should be a great experience.

The noise also obfuscates the brains ability to hold onto and focus on concepts you are trying to learn.

To conceptualize it even more, suppose suppose you are in class and someone is blasting music like its a night club. That’s the internal damage.

The Limitless View

In the movie Limitless there’s a point in the movie where his senses start functioning “Optimally”.

All noise is removed and he’s sensing his entire environment including his ability to scan his mind, which extends far beyond your brain tissue.

This is a “Baby state”. Babies are super receptive like that because their bodies are not “Inflamed” yet.

As we start consuming we damage ourselves. The damage adds noise and that noise can be considerable and overwhelming.

And that affects everything:

  • Learning
  • Communication
  • Relationships
  • Creativity
  • Healing
  • Focus
  • Awareness
  • Mindfullness

And that’s what the start of the movie illustrates.

Most people when they get yelled at like that will snap, or curl up, withdraw, close themselves off, and generally live in a “Blocked” state.

But babies are not built like that. They are naturally curious so they would view the person with curiosity and a sense of peace.

And that is the state that he moves too. That’s our optimal state.

“Begin to build up a separation between the watcher and what is watched.”
