The world is changing rapidly. Most of the skillsets we use today will be irrelevant very soon. Several jobs that exist today will be extinct. AI-powered apps and robots will replace all of them.
Corona Pandemic has fast-tracked most of these developments. COVID is rewriting the rules of the game, and AI is automating them. Acute talent deficiency is another pandemic all of us will face very soon. Ok. Let us park the pandemics for some time and talk about our eyesight. The average human eyesight is 20/20. People with 20/30 vision don't get a driving license in most countries. Anything around 20/1000 is considered blindness.
What about our mindsight? Is it 20/20? Much lesser. This book teaches you how to improve your mind-sight. This book introduces four different lenses. These lenses improve the mind's vision significantly.
Let's talk about hunger now. Whenever we are hungry, our stomach sends multiple signals to the whole body. Immediately, our eyes start the search operation, and our tongue joins the mission with the taste sensors. The nose filters out the smells and the mouth begins to secrete the saliva. The whole body works in tandem until we finish a plate or two. Most of the time, over-cooperation results in super binging. What about our brain? Is it endowed with all these facilities? How do you know when the brain is hungry? How do you sense if someone feeds it toxic food?
