The Nervous System (mx)

The nervous system is the central hub that sorts all information filtering through the five senses. Its purpose is to delete, distort and generalize experience, thereby helping us to make better sense of the world around us.

The nervous system is the seat of consciousness and mental activity that filters perceptual experience in a way that reinforces structures of reality that match existing beliefs, expectations and habits.

The nervous system has a direct influence over the emotional mind — otherwise known as the limbic system. This is the seat of all our emotional experiences.

When the limbic system is stimulated, it triggers the pituitary gland which controls hormonal fluctuations. Consequently emotions are experienced within the body as a result of our interpretations of reality — not actual reality. This can likewise trigger a stress response, thereby raising blood pressure and heart rate levels.
