How could one explain oneself. . .                                      what the psyche is

 

The psyche consists of the totality of goals; Midpoints (neural networks) in the brain.

 

 

With regard to the activity which depends on the state and course of the external world and the state of the internal states, there are the active in the foreground or background and currently passive midpoints.

 

(E.g.: At the foreground, active midpoints are in a new environment, in the background social behaviours run parallel, and passive are goals that are satisfied at the moment).

 

The midpoints are initially generated by targets and represent them. That is to say, if a neural network is stimulated, then the target is activated.

 

Depending on the demands of life, there are always new goals that create the midpoints.

 

(The processes of learning or unlearning take place in the synapses of the neurons).

 

Midpoints can become stronger or weaker in value - depending on when and how often they are needed. If they are no longer needed, they weaken and usually go out.

 

 

Psychic phenomena or functions, i.e. acts, states, patterns, experiences, are generally the effects of neuron networks that interact with other midpoints s and generate feelings in parallel.

 

The midpoints are networked with one another depending on the goals, they can form clusters (a combination for specific processes) and, as a rule, always learn.

 

So, the psyche in the brain remains flexible and adaptable.

 

 

The psyche cannot be equated with the soul, because supernaturality believed here.

 

Of course, faith can also be at the midpoints of the psyche, affecting other neuronal networks.

 

This is particularly true of the religious, mystical themes that, in the person concerned, can evoke a self-fulfilling prophecy through the perspective that results, altering his psyche and consequently his body.

 

 

Mental satisfaction and balance is shown when the midpoints s harmonize with each other.
