Vehicle-Mind Metaphor

Vehicles create traffic and then traffic impacts vehicles, enhancing or impeding their progress. There seems general agreement that the brain creates the mind and then the mind can impact the brain, even directing it in positive or negative ways. This makes the human brain different from any other type of brains on the planet. Only about 10-15 percent of what at goes on in the “mind” comes to conscious awareness. Estimates are that 70 percent of relational choices and communication in the present reflect your own past, primarily what exists outside of conscious awareness but impacts everything at a subconscious level. Most people want to “let sleeping dogs lie” and prefer not to connect the past with the present (it is far easier to blame others); however, you can only deal effectively with and manage well what you can identify, label, and describe.
