EP118: What the Ratio 50:11,000,000 Can Show You About What You Think and Feel

Humans are said to process 11 Million bits of information per second. 

Do you know how much we’re aware of? How many bit make it to conscious awareness? 

50.

Isn’t that an incredible ratio?! 

How do you suppose the 50 out of 11,000,000 bits are chosen? Which 50 come to life in a way we can see and recognize? Given that our brain is all about efficiency and safety, I bet 50 familiar bits have an edge over the others. 

I bet 50 bits that have been showered with emotion and attention, or that appear threatening, have an advantage. 

What does this mean for how seriously we take ourselves and our evaluations of the world?

Listen in to see what comes up for you. But remember that whatever you hear in this episode, it’s definitely not the full story.
