The Computer Mind. Humans have designed and programmed computers to function in much the same way as the human mind. 

The Computer Mind. The Computer Mind. The Computer Mind.

  • We can think of external computer inputs such as the key-board, USB thumb drives and CD’s as being like the external information we put into our mind’s, through sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste etc.
  • in the computer case or tower is the motherboard which contains the central processing unit (CPU), Much like our unconscious  mind, where our beliefs and behaviours run like computer programs, to the back ground somewhere. Our unconscious mind stores memories in time order, while some is deleted into the ‘trash’.
  • Think of the computer or device screen and speakers where information and learning is stored in the CPU (just as in our deep unconscious mind) are accessed and displayed.

The Conscious Mind

Just as you look at your computer or device screen right now, your attention is focused upon what you are reading. If your speakers are playing music your attention is also focused upon what you hear.

The human conscious mind is logical and analytical. It understands the concepts of time (past, present and future) and it also understands reality.

Your computer or device has operating systems programs running in the background, which you are consciously do not understand. Chances are you are unaware they are running right now. Like most computer users you do not understand computer operating systems.

Much like a computer our conscious is most efficient when focused upon one task at a time, although unconscious programs are running somewhere in the background. We cannot see them and we cannot hear them either, although we may feel them as emotions. That is because the ‘language’ of our unconscious (just as computers have a programming language) is emotion.

We only become aware we may have a computer virus or brogan when the computer or device is not operating correctly.

We would only allow a properly qualified and experienced computer programmer to access our computer’s programs and fix the errors and software conflicts.

Likewise we only become aware of our unconscious ‘viruses’ when we ‘feel’ something is wrong emotionally.

The Subconscious Mind

The terms subconscious and unconscious are often confused, So let us clear it up now. The subconscious mind is the state of daydreaming and deep relaxation. Put simply we are sub-aware of it. The sub-conscious is adjacent to consciousness and provides accessible information, such as memories and recall.

The Unconscious Mind

The unconscious is deeper, much deeper than the subconscious mind. You have perhaps heard of Sigmund Freud, the Australian father of psychoanalysis? He wrote about ‘ads unbewusste’ (the unconscious mind), as all that takes place outside conscious awareness. He was talking about the UN known to the conscious mind.

The Unconscious is UN everything conscious. It is not logical or analytical. It does not understand the concepts of time and reality.

That is the same part of our mind that sorts our emotions, memories, beliefs and behaviours. No wonder we are all messed up!

Our unconscious mind sometimes gets confused between what actually happened, and what we dreamed or imagined.

It can come to illogical conclusions about facts and reality. In some ways they are just like computer viruses.

Unfortunately, sometimes the unconscious mind does things, which may be a threat to our own survival (such as addiction, panic attacks, trauma and depression) – which are in direct conflict with it’s own purpose.

The Computer Mind.

Just like a computer programmer, Peter Zapfella uses Neuro (how we think) Linguistic (how we communicate) Programming (our patterns of behaviour and emotion) NLP, the Emotional Alignment Technique (formerly therapy) and advanced hypnosis to identify the unconscious errors and anomalies, and re-align them with survival.

In some ways, like running a computer anti-virus.

As a result he can assist us to delete faulty programs such as addiction, anxiety, trauma and depression, so that our mind and our lives run more smoothly.

Glitches and Viruses

Everything runs quite smoothly and seamlessly until, like a computer with a virus, glitches start to occur. With your computer you may realise this as you start to note flaws on your screen. In life, you may notice this in your behaviour or internal feelings. Of course, just like one would with a computer, you begin to consciously try to figure out what exactly the problem is, if it is residing within you, and if so, where it is located within. You notice it appears to have triggers – certain moments or situations, or perhaps somehow linked to certain people around you. You also notice that you cannot help feeling those feelings, even though you are conscious of them. So you try to get to the bottom of it, yet …. You simply cannot seem to locate the root of it within you, no matter how much you analyse and think about it.

This struggle occurs because we usually attempt to figure these issues out by using our conscious mind to access the subconscious. This would be ab=nalogous to using the desktop screen to directly access the CPU;s data – it is impossible! We have to use the keyboard and use it in a  specific way in order to access the CPU, tom locate the correct program containing the virus, and to bring it up to the screen in order to start the process of cleaning the particular virus out.

Functioning Smoothly

Even though the conscious mind and subconscious operate almost as two different entities, you may already be able to appreciate how incredibly impressive and effective the whole mind usually works.
