Our brains are huge Tetris machines.
Except rather than just using the pieces flowing down the screen, they are able to draw pieces from around the universe. They were designed to solve puzzles. They remember what we don’t remember or what we don’t remember we remember. They secretly know where to go grab answers that fit into other answers to give us our answer.
As long as we keep asking.
It is as simple as that.
You have experienced this puzzle-solving phenomenon in the shower. Or while driving. Or sitting on a beach. Or playing catch with your kid. It is in times of relaxation that our Tetris machine can speed up, work non-judgmentally, and spit out answers to the questions we have been giving it. Questions-to-answers is a game for our brains. It is what Brain does to pass the time.
If you have a problem to be solved, just keep asking the question. And relax.
