Wonder where your energy goes?


Your brain uses up more energy than your heart. And the lion’s share of the energy is usurped by the DMN: the Default Mode Network.

The Default Mode Network is what interconnects the signals from many parts of the brain, and is considered to be responsible for the “Illusion of self”.

The fact that it is always on and busy sustaining the sense of a self – a “me” – the whole time we are awake, explains why any additional self-focus causes our stress hormones to skyrocket and uses up so much vital energy.

When not fully engaged and focussed on a specific task, or when not in awe, the DMN is creating stress and sapping the organism of vital energy.
