Our brains are made up of tiny nerve cells called “neurons” which branch out and connect to each other forming a neural network.  At each connection point, thoughts and emotions are incubated and holographically stored by associative memory.  This means that all ideas, thoughts, feelings, and memories are interconnected and have possible relationships with one another.

For instance, the concept of motherhood is stored in all our neural networks, but each person’s concept is built from their own unique amalgamation of ideas, emotions, and past experiences.  Some people may have motherhood connected to unconditional love and forgiveness, so when they think about motherhood, they experience memories/feelings of happiness and acceptance.

Other people may have motherhood connected to disappointment and ridicule, so when they think about motherhood, they experience memories/feelings of rejection and depression.  We all build our own neural networks based on our own subjective experiences, how we perceive, and what we believe… by Eric Dubay
