Have you ever realized that the brains would not have to memorize everything that the person has to remember! The brain is one of the best delegators that would ensure that the individual parts of the body would take care of the localized controls whenever required.
Twenty Great Gifts:
The ten fingers or the ten toes that the normal person has are great weapons that would be used to perform almost all the tasks that the individual intends to do. These are ten of sub-arms that are able to flex and perform the actions or ten sub-legs when it comes to toes that are strong enough to do the tasks themselves. For instance, one would not require all the five fingers in the arm to type in an alphabet, or to punch in the phone number.
What happens when the person wants to type in the word say ‘T’! The process is very long, wherein:
- The brain would think of the alphabet ‘T’,
- The neural connections would think of which finger to pick to punch in ‘T’, the answer being left-hand index finger.
- Once identified, the nerves have to send the electromagnetic signals to the muscles that control the movement of fingers.
- Send instruction to raise the left-arm index finger and position it appropriately right above the key ‘T’ on the keyboard.
- Send instruction to move the finger with the right speed to hit the key.
- Send instruction to release the finger after the impact is made.
- The eye would look at the screen or the output to confirm that the key hit is ‘T’.
- If wrong, the command sequence is redone.
- If right, the brain would go for the next task.
Simple Sequence to Memorize:
When it comes to typing, the typist would have to send and get lots of instructions between the fingers and the brains to even punch in one key and therefore the brain has come up with the better way that enables the fingers to remember things with practice. The brain need not inform the specific fingers to type and this is achieved by practice, more mechanically, so to say.
All the brain has to say is to type “the” and the set of twenty to thirty instructions are executed by the local memory stored in the fingers. Ask a well-experienced typist and they would agree that their fingers are more mechanical in action than waiting for the brain’s commands to execute such tasks. Remember the phone number that you have used regularly and what happens! Bingo: The fingers move from one key to another even while the brain is dead tired, because it is not the memory of the brain that is in use!
Therefore, it is not required for the brain to interfere in certain actions to make sure that the job gets done, with no compromise on the quality should the brain been in control!
