We do not see with our eyes, but with our brain.

Only impulses, i.e. data, pass through the eyes or other sensory organs and are combined in the brain to form an image.
We all know the phrase, I can't believe my eyes?
However, it would be better if I did not trust my brain.
98% of what we know today about how the brain works was found out in the last decade, which is only 2000 +. If something new is discovered and researched and we don't catch it, is this a problem?
However, because one found out not only new, but found out at the same time that 80% of what we believed in was wrong! And already it plays a big role for us.
Last weekend I visited Budapest and took a city tour, during which we also passed by the Ignaz Phillip Semmelweis Museum. Some may have never heard the name Semmelweis, but it is of great importance to all of us, because perhaps we would not be alive without him.
Semmelweis was a physician and lived at a time when puerperal fever was still claiming the lives of many women. The following is an excerpt from Wikipedia:
Semmelweis attributed varying degrees of incidence of puerperal fever to poor hygiene among physicians and hospital staff and endeavored to introduce hygiene regulations. His study of 1847/48 is today considered the first practical case of evidence-based medicine in Austria. During his lifetime, his findings were not recognized and were rejected, especially by positivist-minded critics and colleagues, as "speculative nonsense." Only a few physicians supported him, as hygiene was considered a waste of time and incompatible with the theories of disease causation in force at the time.
Semmelweis wanted all doctors to wash their hands before treating patients. The doctors thought he was confused, because why should one wash one's hands?
They could not see the pathogens on their hands, but trusted their eyes and not Semmelweis. Only much later, when we were able to recognize the little "animals" with microscopes, did we begin to believe Semmelweis.
Always curious, when we see we start to "believe"... At least that's what we call it, but we should believe just when we don't see yet.
Empirically, it was demonstrable for Semmelweis that fewer women died when their hands were washed.
And so it remained dangerous to work with old thinking.
What does this have to do with our brain?
If we understand that our brain lets through only one percent of all impulses and fills up 99% from old storage to get a whole picture, then we should be aware that we almost do not perceive what is real. Taking something for true, which is not true, but only stored. We always run in an old film.
It is a matter of learning to let more than 1% impulses through. To get other perspectives and to "see" other worlds. Then not only illness can be prevented (see above), then prosperity can be generated for everyone, (Millionaire Spirit - work on the invisible), then solutions for all kinds of problems can be seen.
So we could also call the main task we perform at Win Win AG "learning to see" . Seeing other solutions, thereby creating other values and shaping other worlds.
We know that sometimes it is not very easy to get over valid theories. When I write a book and call it Basic Millionaire Spirit, I experience many people who lump me in with the puffery and don't recognize the Spirit.
When Carina does Bio Regulation in her practice, some also see just a yoga teacher. When we offer a PurposeCoach training, some only see a variation of the training in the classic 80% world. They don't see (yet) the world where the solutions are to be discovered.
And the crazy thing is, remember Ignaz Semmelweis, many defend the old theories although by now they could see and measure the other results, better health, more wealth, regulated bio.
So loosely based on Mr. Korf's motto:
"Because what can't be (yet) can't be."
Perhaps now you understand that we say,
Be careful to just trust your Brain - built a Brain Trust!
