Brain death affects mental life. During my research (and experience), I became more interested in how victims of brain manipulation behave. In time, I saw that there were differences that could be applied to the average person and brain manipulators in particular. Here, I've tried to paint a clear picture of these differences.
We must be aware and have a better understanding of brain manipulations as a whole and learn how to cope with them. There are 2 major ways of dealing with them:
- managing your own beliefs
Tolerance is the physiological side of manipulation, where the body is capable of using mental stimulation to compensate for normal physical discomfort (difficulties in the areas of lumbar or vertebral spines, for example). There is no right and wrong way of dealing with a mental struggle. Nobody can claim that "all people with brain death must be stuck". It would seem very logical to say "you must be a brainfuck because we know how to deal with it" and this is, unfortunately, a tired old justification. You could say it is the reason we know so little about the mental state of brain manipulation.
There is nothing that increases the risk of been affected, but, according to research, brain death increases the risk of Parkinson's. The key to tolerating brain-related things that make us sad or scared is to find in other people's perspective a way to relate to those experiences and be aware of what they are telling you.
Managing your own beliefs: accepting beliefs you aren't sure about.
Finding a way to manage one's own beliefs is what most people try to do. This is generally easier said than done. My beliefs have changed a lot as I've grown older.
During the Enlightenment, the best analogy of belief was the strong voice of God (I'm agnostic). Many scientific minds of that time took that as a testable hypothesis. Their results were disappointing for the great philosophers. It was not possible to prove that God spoke through the scientist or they would have looked for him inside.
Instead of accepting all beliefs (which are usually not good), you can simply manage your beliefs by recognizing and managing them in the context of someone else's beliefs.
