We have spent the last 50 years studying the human brain and mind. Our investigations have revealed that 90 percent of people use only the left brain hemisphere to think with. They do both their thinking and acting with only the left brain hemisphere.
This limits these people to using only logical, intellectual, objective means to correct problems.
Only 10 percent of humanity think with the right brain hemisphere, and then act with the left brain hemisphere.
Is there an advantage in using the right brain hemisphere to think with? It certainly appears so. Those who do:
- Are healthier.
- Make fewer mistakes.
- Have fewer accidents.
- Are luckier.
- Are more successful in life.
- Are happier.
In other words, the 10 percent are classified as geniuses. They have “extraordinary intelligence surpassing that of most intellectually superior individuals.”
Think of that for a moment:
Not only do they have more intellectual ability than the average person, they have more intellectual ability than even the intellectually superior people.
They have found a whole new dimension that they can use for problem solving, a dimension that has not been saturated but that has tremendous potential as a means of helping humanity to correct the problems that we are facing on our planet today.
Expanding your intellectual capacity
Once we had identified the problem and had determined what was causing it, then the next question was: What could be done to help the 90 percent of people to become superior geniuses?
We had to find a way to help the 90 percent learn to think with the right brain hemisphere and act with the left, the way the geniuses do.
It appears that the functions of the two brain hemispheres are specialized — they have different tasks to perform. Common sense tells us that there must be a reason for this, and the reason must be to allow one hemisphere to specialize in thinking and the other to be used in taking action.
Since most people are doing their thinking with the hemisphere that was not designed for thinking, but was designed for putting our thoughts into action — the left brain hemisphere — they have saturated the left brain hemisphere and have been stymied.
Biologically, people use both brain hemispheres: The left brain hemisphere controls sensory and motor nerves on the right side of the body while the right hemisphere controls the left side of the body.
But when it comes to intellectual abilities, people are using only half a brain, and they are using the least suitable half. No wonder they have become saturated, and everything is now going in the wrong direction.
How to get along better
Those who think and act with only the left brain hemisphere get sick more often with psychosomatic health problems. They are more accident prone. They make more mistakes. They are less successful in life.
When people think with the right brain hemisphere and act with the left, the results are just the opposite: They are healthier, less accident prone, make fewer mistakes, and are more successful in life.
When the 90 percent think with the left hemisphere, and act with it also, their brain frequency is centered at 20 cycles per second (cps), called the “beta” frequency.
But for the 10 percent who think with the right brain hemisphere, their brain frequency is centered at 10 cps, called “alpha.” Then when they act, their brain frequency is centered at 20 cps beta.
It appears that for people to be healthier, happier, and more successful in life, and to make correct decisions more often than not, they need to learn how to think with the right hemisphere, at alpha, and then to act with the left hemisphere, at beta.
When people do this, they will make the correct decisions to help solve problems. They will come up with creative ideas so that they will gain while helping other people to also gain, rather than gain at other people’s loss, as so many are doing now.
When people are centered at 10 cycles alpha, they can find ways to get everything that they need without taking anything away from anyone else, without hurting anybody. Nobody loses; everybody gains. But that does not happen with left brain thinking, only with right brain thinking.
It has been said that we prey on each other at beta, while we pray for each other at alpha.
A new field of science
Our research lead us to develop a method of training the 90 percent who now use only the left brain hemisphere to think with, so that they will be able to use their right brain hemisphere to think with, just as the natural geniuses on the planet do.
This has created a whole new field of science called psychorientology — or “psyche-orientation,” which means aligning your mind for success.
The Silva Systems are a product of this research, a product of psychorientology. Over the last 30 years, the Silva Systems have helped millions of people learn to think with the right brain hemisphere, and act with the left.
