Consider This

The brain is already set up to do some pretty amazing things - many of which we experience pretty regularly. At the core of Polarity – and all of the ability it gives you – is the capability of chaining events together. How did you get that déjà vu? Why did you get that unsafe feeling about opening a door? Why do you get a good feeling about doing things for no reason whatsoever? Simply put, it’s because the components of your brain are able to chain events together to predict and create future events. The discussion about how chaining events works is discussed later in this article. All of these abilities go unnoticed individually. Collectively they are all the same ability: Polarity.

How much luck do you have in life? Luck comes in both good and bad forms. It can come as mildly as finding money in your pocket to the extremes of missing a doomed flight because you overslept. Many of us experience long strings of both good and bad luck for no apparent reason. Luck, perhaps, had nothing to do with it. Maybe some of those lucky or unlucky events were, in fact, deliberate. Maybe, perhaps, the string of luck that you had was nothing more than breadcrumbs to lead you in a certain direction. And maybe you were led in this direction for the benefit – or demise – of someone else. Random events do happen in life, but when there are too many events that line up are too coincidental, too good (or too tragic) to be true - maybe it isn’t random. Maybe it’s the Polarity of someone else who’s influencing you.

Science tends to write too many things off as “it can happen" or "it's just random." Something tells you otherwise. The strings of luck happen far too often to be random. They are deliberate, meticulously planned, and have a purpose that may not seem obvious.

How Polarity Works

Human Anatomy



Polarity begins with the thalamus. The constructs of the brain dictate that all senses except smell are first routed through the thalamus1 and then go to the rest of the brain. The thalamus serves many purposes beyond routing. It also plays a major role in regulating sleep, alertness, and arousal. It plays an integral role in your body's ability to move and to be aware of your surroundings. In a way, if your body was a car, your thalamus is sitting behind the steering wheel. The thalamus, along with the basal ganglia, are tightly coupled towards predicting future events and reinforcing wanted/unwanted behavior2. This is central to Polarity.

The thalamus gets input from the eyes, ears, skin, etc. Other parts of the brain (e.g., parietal cortex, occipital cortex, temporal cortex, frontal cortex) are responsible for the processing of this very raw information from the thalamus. These, in turn, route to the perirhinal cortex and parahippocampal cortex - these are collectively responsible for remembering objects and scenes, respectively. They are responsible for creating object/scene information into an understandable format so the next part of the brain - the entorhinal cortex - can figure out how to package this information for short-term and long-term memory usage. Once it does this, the information is sent to the hippocampal formation (i.e., dentate gyrus, hippocampus, and subiculum).



The hippocampal formation is the brain's central mechanism for not just memory, but also for determing how to act on memories based on prior experiences (i.e., a key part of learning). Because of the "how to act on memories" function, the hippocampal function is able to send information back up the chain of cortices so the body can decide to move, touch, listen, etc. Your thalamus can send signals forward to your eyes, ears, and skin in error occasionally (e.g., when you thought you heard something or saw something that didn't exist). Its information isn't always in error. In the case of déjà vu, the information has already been predicted by the other cortices and has been sent to the thalamus; the problem is that the thalamus hasn't sent the information to the eyes, ears, and skin. The result is confusion at seeing the déjà vu event unfold because you are seeing something that you've already predicted. Polarity, at its heart, is your innate ability to predict instinctively without thinking. This predictive ability is made possible by the power of your brain, as described later in this article, to chain events together and act as if the events will happen with as much certainty as if they did.

Polarity and You

Your brain already has the constructs and ability to make Polarity available to you. The more "full" your Polarity, the greater these abilities are amplified. Polarity - like any other sense your body possesses - is entirely natural. It is a built-in mechanism that has influenced you on a daily basis. It is a mechanism that has guided the path of history. Just like having the ability to see or hear, everyone has some degree of Polarity and everyone uses it even if they don't know it.
