The same is true for our instincts. Mel Gibson viciously attacked Jews and then retracted everything. Is it possible to have a racist part of our brain and a non-racist part of our brain?
Well, it turns out, yes. Our brain is constantly driven by different forces pulling in different directions. The author says we could divide our brain in two forces: The rational part of our brain analyses information in the outside world, while The emotional part of our brain monitors internal state and worries about the consequences. Short Term VS Long Term You know the feeling: someone offers you a piece of cake, or you sit down to eat and love the food.
One part of us wants to eat everything, while another part of us wants to stay stronger so we can keep our weight.
My Note: Successful people are the ones able to resist the pull of the immediate satisfaction, control their own mind and instruct their body to do what is best in spite of the difficulties and hardships also read: The Marshmallow Test and Grit. The author also mentions the current technology might pose a problem.
The author says our brain looking for meaning is the same reason why we are happier if we sit straight or force a smile. He sets the goals and then the vision and the rest gets to work. The CEO is not aware of most of what goes on, but only steps in when his attention is required. Then he goes into something I fully disagree with: that we are the product of both nature and nurture, but that we choose neither.

Chapter 7: Life After the Monarchy How to cope with our meaninglessness? My note: I disagree with this notion of us having been dethroned wholeheartedly. For example, have we found any genes that correlates to schizophrenia?
Yep… Hundreds of them. And yet the most important predictor is the passport people have. If someone lives in a foreign place and looks different and he suffer because of it instead of being proud of his heritage.. But at times if feels like that. Not applicable Lots of info but not so much highly applicable advice. Earth not at the center of the universe, the subconscious and now his book showing how little we really control. It does NOT matter how much you can control. And whether that control is 0.
Which leads me to the last part I disagree with, which is that I believe you control yourself… A lot. If you want to. And if you are willing to put in the work. It explains a lot of how things work and I absolutely recommend you get it.
