The observed and measured working of the human brain exhibits many mechanisms that are very similar to those from today’s computer technology. Some examples are signal procesing, compression, encoding, cache, memory.
.
The part of the human brain that is responsible for perception of reality based upon sensory input uses some sort of caching mechanism. This cache contains parts of the reality that have been percieved before but are not perceived now. If you open a door to another room, its content is saved in this cache. If you close the door, the room and its contents behind the door feel like they are still there. However, it is possible to flush that cache and even disable it.
.
Experiencing reality with disabled cache is very frightening and intimidating, because you become very conscious of the fact that things that you do not directly percieve do not exist in your reality. If you close the door to the room, it feels like it has disappeared and does not exist behind the door. You feel an urgent need to open the door and to check if the room still exists. Although you see the same room again, you conclude that it may have been exchanged by another room that is completely the same while the door was closed.
.
From this experience you understand much better why babies are so intimidated by reality, especially when they are left alone.
.
From this experience you also conclude that your assumptions of what people think of you are based on your own thoughts and assumptions. It makes much more sense to decide what you want them to think about you or let them think whatever they like and do not bother at all.
