Are we “listening” to our transpersonal higher-self (NOUS including Thalmus) and doing things with autonomy, attunement and adaptability? Are we just doing what we are told by others, nor in connection to our higher-self?
NOUS- νοῦς (Strong’s #3563 — Noun Masculine — nous — nooce ) for which see MIND , No. 1, is translated “understanding” in 3563 noús (a masculine noun) – the God-given capacity of each person to think (reason); the mind; mental capacity to exercise reflective thinking. For the believer, 3563 (noús) is the organ of receiving God’s thoughts, through faith. Ro 12:2,3: “2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (3563 /ólynthos), so that you may prove what the will (2307 /thélēma) of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. 3 For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith (4102 /pístis)” (NASU). Luke 24:45 , AV (RV, “mind”); 1 Corinthians 14:14,15 (twice),19; Philippians 4:7; Revelation 13:18 [Ask me about my Teacher Reflection Journal-no more lesson plans…Retrieved from https://biblehub.com/greek/3563.htm]
The ‘theory of mind” is the degree of capacity for empathy and strength; as well as our understanding of ourselves and others have a mind, too. Where the mind is located has been a continuous debate- I propose that the mind at least begin in our very own thymus. The thymus in Greek root–thymos–the middle region between reason (intelligence) and desire (imagination). The thymus is the center of both our higher and lower self. It is the epicenter of a vagus nerve highway including the interchanges from our gut-brain axis, to our Pons, RAS including CAN: ACC and HPA (both housed with-in the brain) which all control every system, sense, and function; basically, every aspect of the human being. The “LEB” is an eon- a miniature particle-spherical body made up of God’s Image aka The Nous (That can multiply, grow, expand- as in constant connection and flow through Christ, by means of coming-into His pleasure, which is our content: the ARAS- Thymus, Pons, RAS (HPA & ACC)/GUT DESPAIR of having anger and shame (worry & fear of the SUPEREGO (Idolatry, Sloth… Woe To Meekness & Justice, aka SUPEREGO -God’s conscious (nous). It’s the ultimate “energy” center that create an authority of the self-body seeking out love, peace, and justice. It makes up our EM field- discipleship and determines or desires and higher purpose as it’s “the soul” in commune with one’s spirit. The thymus aka “leb” can be overtaken by love or fear, worry – it’s where our consciousness and super consciousness (ARAS- chakras 12+ consciousness and subconscious conjoin in unity) begins and ends. In reference to the “leb” nous:- R E Murphy on the heart – The heart is the central organ of the body in the wisdom literature. It is often paraphrased as “mind,” since it does have an intellectual component (cf. the usual, if unfortunate, translation of the “listening heart” of Solomon in 1Ki 3:9 as “understanding mind”). But it is also the basic orientation of a person, embracing desires, emotions, and attitude.
The “Eon” which is the Image of God Powers “The Nous” Stored in “The Leb” which is the Christ-like Mind Shared With God…
So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27 AMP
MY ELBERT: EVERYONE LEARNS BETTER EMBRACING REVOLUTIONARY TEACHING IS The first Specialized Online Coaching Curriculum.
After twenty-five years of being in education, I provide tutoring, consulting, and coaching, for children and adults, on neurodiversity including dyslexia and other neurodevelopmental differences. Over the last 15 years, I’ve observed an increasing amount of affective, behavioral, sensorial, cognitive, physical, mental, and spiritual difficulties and differences due to learning with trauma along with an increased number of people being medicated, misdiagnosed, or going undiagnosed; Note, between 1998 and 2018, the number of people diagnosed with autism has jumped by 787%. The rate of increase was greater for females, with the greatest rise in adults being diagnosed with ASD. [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/austim-rate-increase-19368/]. Therefore, I have developed a neuropedagogy that includes my observations and evaluations that looks at the “whole person” using empirical science, my neurodivergent thinking, and (w)holistic wisdom. Where learning is concerned, the “whole person” is important because people are different and so many learn and think differently.
My Neuropedagogy allows Neuroscience, Psychology, and Psychopathology including Positive Psychology such as Motivational Interviewing including Self-Perception Theory, Biopsychosocial Psychology such as (W)holism approaches, Evangelical Theology such as Neuthetic Counselling, and Education including Constructivist Theory and Montessori Philosophy to come into an authentic practice. It really looks at how we all process information differently in space and interconnected time; briefly, we are all wired with dissimilarity for which each neural pathway is connected differently to process the same information that we all can receive. My current practice is a holistic approach to discovery of resilience, inner-being, spiritual-growth, and aims to learn how to stimulate new zones of the brain, and increase self-directed neuroplasticity, and atonement to create connections (neuropathways) for learning to be successful and enjoyable. Furthermore, it is targeted at naturally stimulating the brains of all types of learners, not only those with students who have learning disabilities.
The Problem: We are seeing children/adults digress with gulf-sized disconnect and low self-esteem. Each child/adult is multidimensional and ALL our systems and senses need to function equalized, activated, and balanced for learning to take place. The triune brain which is the neomammalian complex (RAS- aka neocortex), midbrain (pons- aka limbic system), and forebrain (thymus aka reptilian) is working on a downward function, which makes learning and thinking chaotic in the mind. People are using their mental and emotional bodies to learn, not their etherical body (etheric).
The Solution: When using the etherical body, ALL our faculties, systems, and senses will function equalized, activated, and balanced. The triune brain needs to be working in an upward function (no longer perform in a protective function). With a functional upward system, the child [or adult] can trust themselves and their gifts and learning uniquenesses through spiritual mindset with self-directed neuroplasticity through ABC’s and atonement meaning God awareness (eventually unity) through PYAM Daily. They’re offered the freedom arising from conditions within the brain, senses, or sense organs and not directly caused not by external stimuli but the knowing with-in themselves which is patience for understanding and trusting in their subjective, divergent mind.
A practical definition of the mind— cellular memory is a theory that the body’s cells retain memories independently from the brain. Note: Categorically distilled from a dozen scientific fields; there is a triangle system of well-being—includes how to promote a healthy memory includes: PONS, RAS, & THYMUS (including Thalmus) which promotes a healthy flow between your body, brain, and relationships of the mind and heart such as in a specific way of Autonomy & Attunement= Adaptability! What is a Subjective Mind? Subjective mind, which wants to comprehend the world by self-realization, consciousness and is open to different interpretations of same objects viewed through different lenses.

What Is Conscience? Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion, Nov 09, 2021 Having a good conscience . . . –1 Peter 3:16 God has put within each one of us something that cries aloud against us, whenever we do that which we know to be wrong. Conscience is the detective that watches the direction of our steps and decries every conscious transgression. Conscience is the built-in power of our minds to pass moral judgments on ourselves, approving or disapproving our feelings, actions, thoughts, and plans, and telling us, if what we have done is assessed as wrong, that we deserve to suffer for it. Conscience has in it two elements: an awareness of certain things as being right or wrong, and an ability to apply laws and rules to specific situations. Conscience insists on judging us, and insist on judging us by the highest standard we know. So we sometimes call it God’s voice in the soul, and in a sense it is.

What is Conscience/Righteousness- Intellectual-Moral aka “The Simple” (Strong IQ- Rewarded Pure Heart)? The moral feeling, by which we mean a sense of the difference between right and wrong, would seem to be a part of the native furnishing of the mind. Conscience is a vigilant eye before which each imagination, thought, and act, is held up for either censure or approval. I believe there is no greater argument for the existence of God in the world today than conscience. There is no greater proof of the existence of a moral law and Lawgiver in the universe than this little light of the soul. It is God’s voice to the inner man. Conscience is our wisest counselor and teacher, our most faithful and most patient friend. [Retrieved from https://www.internationalstandardbible.com/R/righteousness.html].
What is Self-Realization/Blamelessness- Imaginative-Moral aka “The Simple” (Strong EQ- Rewarded Clean Mind)? How can we achieve this state of Being for ourselves? Self Realization is a term that is becoming increasingly more widely used. In many ways it is an obscure term, and its meaning is not immediately apparent. For many it is a term that means the same as ‘Enlightenment’ – a word which is similarly something difficult to determine. However, the term ‘Self Realization’ is more useful as it actually refers to a very specific stage in the journey of awakening that Ramana Maharshi and others described. [Retrieved from https://andreaoneness.com/self-realization/]. “The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually). And they shall put My name upon the Israelites, and I will bless them.” Numbers 6:24-27 AMPC
I do believe the disconnect for students, families, and schools. It’s in the domain of Spiritual Development…
The disconnect happens in these domains: (intellectual)- what is right, (moral)-what is good, and (imaginative)-what is best; to do well (uprightly): behavior and emotion with the discernment of His Divine Will for us in justice, design, plan, and purpose for yourself and meekness towards others which brings gladness, humility, uprightness, righteousness, wisdom! Affirmation (Blessing of Thanksgiving, heart): Do not be conformed to this world ([modern],this age) [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable [right, moral] and perfect Will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. Romans 12:2 AMPC
nous, (Greek: “mind” or “intellect”) in philosophy, the faculty of intellectual apprehension and of intuitive thought. Used in a narrower sense, it is distinguished from discursive thought and applies to the apprehension of eternal intelligible substances and first principles.

Favorite Quotes of Mine:
“The challenge of collaborating and cooperatively adapting at scale creates many difficulties and we may have unwittingly put in place a number of cultural systems and practices, particularly in education, which are undermining our ability to adapt.” – Dr. Helen Taylor Retrieved from “The Evolution of Complementary Cognition: Humans cooperatively adapt and evolve through a system of collective cognitive search”, Helen Taylor, Brice Fernandes & Sarah Wright doi:10.1017/S0959774321000329
Everything happens for a reason. Wait on God and trust in Him. He wants the best for us. He wants to take us from glory to glory, and from victory to victory.” Germany Kent
“For this system of collective cognition to enable us to adapt at scale, we need to be aware of it so that we can design and build systems from education to the economy that nurture different ways of thinking as well as effective communication and collaboration.” [Retrieved from https://complementarycognition.co.uk/#Theory].
“It starts with this foundational principle: no matter how baffling our self-defeating behaviors may seem to us, everything we do has some logic to it. We just have to know where to look for that logic. So, if you have a self-defeating behavior that you can’t seem to resolve, instead of asking “why?” try asking “when?” You might just get some new answers.” Iris McAplin [Retrieved from https://www.irismcalpin.com/single-post/2019/11/19/The-Hidden-Logic-of-Self-Sabotage?fbclid=IwAR24g876BGPAY0fdUEB_4daiovy21fOk_cB0laz4piAjOBebyZNdKFpBkaQ].
“Reflection requires an attunement to the self that is supportive and kind, not a judgmental stance of interrogation and derogation. Reflection is a compassionate state of mind.” “Attunement requires presence but is a process of focused attention and clear perception.” Danile J. Siegel
