How is it to possible to multitask the way we think we should be able to?
Exhibit A: Auto Drive Listening
Think of holding a cell phone up to your ear – the person on the other end is talking. Your mind can readily connect with the habitual process of “listening” upon either making or taking a call. Once the connection is solidified and the conversation is underway there is normally silence on one end or the other in between verbal exchanges. During the other person’s delivery, your mind will drift to a state relaxation mode for message reception. This state allows for a person to multi-task while “hearing”. Your ears will still be receiving audible sounds from the engaged communicator and your brain will function to associate the input with accurate storage files. Relaxation allows for one to readily take on various facets of daily activity, while being tense pushes the limits of anxiety.
How do you respond on Auto Drive?
If you’re busy creating a mental grocery list and going over the day’s agenda during Auto Drive listening, then how are you to make conversation?
Exhibit B: The Meditative State of Mind
The meditative state of mind is necessary for mental relaxation. Don’t worry, your mind can play back any brain file. I use: run associated record x decipher code. This can be done with less time than it takes to actively listen – you are committing your conversation to endless memory. Subsequently, the bulk usage of response time is associated with thought composition, which allows for more effectively compiled messages.
Like Parallel Thinking, Auto Drive is a level controlled by the Master Thought (Constitution), which is like a personal mission statement. This is something unique to you but should encompass an idea that you want for your life, the person you’re striving to be. Evaluating who you believe you want to be should be measured against what you feel is most important to your purpose. What you desire to be is the thing you will usually feel you can do the best. Creating the venue to display this unique you and your skills is enabled by disciplined dreaming (I will discuss this term further in “The G-d of Dreams”).
The period of relaxation in face to face conversations is shorter than a phone call’s. People tend to talk for longer exchange periods on the telephone than in person due to the majority’s untapped ability to perceive nonverbal communication, such as telepathy. Either way, you have enough time to effectively multi-task during conversations by placing certain functions like the reception and organization of sound, on Auto Drive.
