Saturated by so much information, many people wonder if it is possible to blank their minds. The answer, perhaps, is not what everyone expects. The reason many want to blank their minds is because they feel fatigue, stress, or exhaustion, and they long to suspend all their thoughts.
But is this really possible? The truth is that it might not be, although opinions on this are controversial. The brain is the main organ of the central nervous system and its complexity is high. It can control all vital functions of human beings, from breathing to heart rate to digestion.
As for the mind, it is related to the brain because it refers to the processes that we can execute at the cognitive level, such as perception, memory, imagination, thought, and so on. This explains why it is not so easy to leave your mind blank.
Our brain generates impulses for thoughts to occur, and these are not so easy to stop. So what can we do to calm our mind? How can we stop those thoughts that obstruct us? We invite you to discover it.
Can you blank your mind?
Opinions on this matter are opposite. There are those who think that it is possible to completely blank the mind, while others think otherwise. According to science, some experiments have shown that the mind seems to “disappear”, making it impossible to monitor its whereabouts.
The participants in these experiments even expressed having experienced three mental states: wandering through the mind, erasing the mind and being focused. Regarding the subject, other bibliographic sources have made reference to a state known as absent mind, but this would not be very desirable.
In the absent-minded state, people who suffer from it experience inattention and memory loss, so probably not everyone will want to experience something similar.
