A Step-by-Step Explanation of
How Mind Develops & Works in the Brain
Tremendous amounts of information about the human brain, its structure, its components, how they are connected, what they do, etc. is available, but not how they work together to form mind.
Introducing Dichotomized Operating System (DOS Model), a most comprehensive, yet simple model of mind that explains what mind is, how it works, how it develops over time and why do we have it.
With billions of neurons and trillions of connections, operations of the brain seem to be of highly complex nature. Based on the DOS model, mind emerges out of many, but simple mechanisms in the brain. It is their interactions with each other that result into complex behavior.
Discovery of such simple mechanisms has made it possible for mind to be explained using common sense logic in the following pages, because of which, any inquisitive person ready to make the effort can understand it (no prior knowledge of any subject is required).
Once you understand these mechanisms, you will be able to understand how conscious and unconscious thoughts and processes in your mind influence you, your decisions, your life.
Just 4 COMPONENTS of DOS model explain the following:
What is mind?
Why is mind necessary?
How does the mind develop?
What are thoughts?
What makes us capable of making "our own" decisions?
How do we understand other people's minds?
How do we learn and interact with the world?
What is consciousness?
How, when and why does consciousness emerge?
How do subconscious and unconscious processes work?
How subconscious and unconscious thoughts influence our decisions?
How is consciousness connected to sensations, perception, thoughts, awareness, attention, pain, etc.
Why is attention limited to one task at a time?
What are different kinds of thought processes & how do they work?
How do we handle multiple tasks simultaneously?
What is perception?
What is awareness?
What is attention?
How do we empathize?
How do we process our day-to-day experiences?
How do we perform physical actions?
How does pain work?
How does hunger work?
How do growing children learn from others?
How do growing children learn logic and reasoning?
How do male and female brains differ?
Why most people write with their right hand?
How do we recognize faces?
How do newborns get their instincts?
How does the brain process different sensations simultaneously?
What is the basis of mirror neuron system?
Why do minds have "Intentional States"?
How can it be proved that animals have consciousness?
What are various types of inter-generation mechanisms and how do they work?
How different characteristics pass on to following generations?
What offers ever increasing intelligence to the mankind?
And many more…
Besides solving mysteries like consciousness, free will, etc., the model also solves mysteries that baffle medical research even today, like causes of symptoms seen in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), phobia, etc.
A Radically Simple Approach to Understand Mind & Brain
The Current Approach - Outside-In: In the current approach to understand mind and brain operations, observations are made, based on which how brain works is derived, giving an insight of how mind works.
DOS Model Approach - Inside-Out: Dichotomized Operating System Model (DOS Model) uses the reverse approach. It initially explains what mind is by explaining its components and then goes out to explain how various phenomena observed and subjectively felt emerge out of such components through many, but simple mechanisms and processes in the brain.
As compared to the current approach, which requires multidisciplinary studies from diverse and specialized fields, the straightforward approach offered by the DOS model makes it a breeze to understand mind, and thus, workings of the brain. The many, but simple mechanisms and processes driven by it's four components make it possible for mind to be explained using common sense logic without using any medical terminology, giving the common man a never before insight of the workings of his own mind.
