Part 3: What kind of mental legislation has your mind drafted?
Picking up from yesterday’s posting: Just as we have created over- and under-inclusive national laws and policies, the human mind has a built-in legislative function that does the same thing. It’s no coincidence: Since we used our minds to create the legislative arm and our laws, doesn’t it make sense that this function would mirror our minds?
As explained in my March 9th Blog, until around ages 10-12, the human mind only has the substance of the right, creative, abstract “subconscious” part of the mind. No capacity to discern exists at this stage, and the mind’s focus is on surviving and developing as a person.
In survival mode, we are in the same protective lawmaking mode as Congress, only we develop personal beliefs, rules, habits, and behaviors.
