The new growth theory argues that since the brain is constantly adapting to the environment it doesn’t have to have a fixed identity. And since the environment changes and develops according to the changing needs of the organism (which makes sense), it is impossible to have a fixed identity. So, in other words, the brain needs to adapt, but that means it has to change its identity.
I mean, it’s not a new theory either. In fact, the previous growth theory was very similar to it, except that it was more about the brain’s need for growth instead of its identity.
So, while it’s true that our brains change, that’s not the only change. Our brains also change how we see and feel. In other words, our brains also change how we behave. So, instead of being a fixed person with fixed identity, you’re a person with a range of identities (that is, a person that has a set of distinct identities within a set of basic identities). Basically, you have no fixed identity.
I’ll bet you have a set of personalities. The reality is you can’t change a personality but you have to know what it is. Your brain is not as evolved as you think, even when you’re doing it alone. You’re going to have many brain types. So, what makes you different from your default brain types? Well, it also has to do with your ability to think about and act on the brain.
This is a fascinating little concept that is being explored by some researchers that are trying to understand how brains work. The idea of having a set of basic identities, or “neural subtypes,” explains why a human brain can be so varied in terms of how much of the person is in the default brain. In other words, the brain is so complex, so different, and so interconnected that you cant have a single “default” brain.
There are many types of brains, which are called “neurons”. Some people have one specific type of brain, and others have another. For instance, the brain of a person who has a dominant personality can have multiple different brains, while a person who is a shy person may have the same exact brain, but different personalities within it.
The growth theory, as it applies to mental illness, is that brain cells grow to be bigger and bigger. A more mature brain has a wider range of different brain areas and connections. In this way, the more mature you are, the more your brain can actually adapt to your changing environment.
The idea of the growth theory is actually a really good one. You might have a dominant personality, but if you have multiple different brains you are more likely to become depressed, paranoid, or even psychotic. The idea is that, for some reason, certain brain cells are more likely to grow. A person’s brain consists of about 95% white matter. White matter is basically the stuff that surrounds your neurons.
The growth theory is one of the most popular theories in neuroscience, and it’s been used to explain a great many of the bizarre things people do. For instance, I’ve actually seen neuroscientists use the growth theory to explain how a person might suddenly become suicidal, although their explanation wasn’t quite as bizarre as the theory itself. The growth theory seems to suggest that the brain has a tendency to grow when it’s in a certain state of stress.
As if people don’t know what they’re doing and that they will always do it.
