The brain had potential to develop on a certain path over the course of human evolution, but this potential was passed over in favor of other skills.
You do have multiple
levels to your brain or consciousness, and these dormant
abilities of your mind can be reactivated and practiced to reform
the scope of what your mind is.
There are, however, other parts of the neurological system which can be developed.
Though emphasizing development of the frontal lobe has led humans in the development of society and consciousness, a certain species has also progressed to consciousness by adapting via the increased complexity of the brainstem.
This species is an
offshoot of the saurian line, and diverged from reptoid
genealogy shortly after the divergence between humanity and the
reptoids themselves from their 'shared' ancestral line.
For humans, the brain stem connects sensory information (five senses) to the rest of the brain and maintains unconscious activity like breathing and heart rate.
It also plays a large
role in unconscious reactions like shielding one's eyes from harm.
That same aspect of reactionary thought can still be seen in a primitive sense in reptiles on Terra to this day. Animals work on instinct, and the alternative line of saurians built an entire culture and civilization on instinct and adaptation.
It's an extraordinary
achievement in comparison to what humanity has built for themselves.
mind is free from distraction and idle consideration, running as
crisis comes along and staying uninhibited by frivolous,
time-wasting considerations personal interaction or staying humane
in the war campaign against inferior life forms.
The human brain is at its most creative when it's making "theta" level brainwaves, which is a relaxed and non-calculating state of mind that the mind acquires just before falling asleep.
This is why creativity so often happens on the spur of the moment, either just before a human is going to bed or when thinking about something completely unrelated to a particular problem.
This is reactionary consciousness, that achieves insight without calculation or applying too much focus. It can be done for human thinking, and that is the first step in actualizing the dormant aspects of thought that humanity left behind.
Wisdom can be found in
that type of construction also, even if it is only a first step in
learning to live by the wisdom of 'the raptoreal sages' from the
distant epochs of history.
They were achieving in
their mentalities intense focus, and it was a focus that was
When a mind is open and simple in response to an emergency situation, it may react more quickly to threats and simply move by reflex.
This is the state of mind a martial artist is in when sparring with an opponent:
This is truly active
