we keep making brain cells
this is so important i’m reposting it in its entirety. it’s the key to life.

Recent findings in neuroscience has taken a quantum leap in understanding how the brain works. It is now certain that we are making new brain cells and neural connections in every minute which is very much in line to the thought vibrations approach discussed in the area of the Law of Attraction.
Before the introduction of real time brain scans, it was believed that a process of cell division creates brain cells, called neurogenesis, which begins to slow down in early life and stops when we reach adolescence. The result, according to scientists, is that as we get older we simply base or behaviours on the way we were taught to think in early childhood to the point that our brains become hardwired based on early life sense impressions.
However, the discovery of neuroplasticity changes all this thinking to a much more hopeful view of life. We are creating new brain cells and creating new neural connections all the time. So this goes beyond the findings of neurogenesis that says we stop brain cell production in our teens and that we actually create brain cells and neural connections all the time.
No matter what your age, your brain is perfectly capable of creating new neural pathways which means that every time you have a new thought or experience, your brain is making new neural connections. It would seem that the neural connections form stronger pathways when you have bursts of inspiration. Inspiration is usually a thought mixed with an emotion which is the basis of how the Law of Attraction can be used to create new results and new experiences faster.
If you want to find out more about this fascinating subject, John Assaraf has written about this in his latest book The Anwser which cover aspects in neuro science, Law of Attraction and how to apply this information in building a business.
