Neuroplasticity is what permits us to change and adapt. It is what makes the brain malleable and open to take on new information which then forges new neural pathways. Without this ability humans would be helpless and unable to function under circumstances which turn the tables on everything we have been taught thus far.We are victims to programming from the moment we are born but then this feature is what permits a reprieve should we wish to take it. We can work through the noise and reprogram ourselves in our own good time often paddling upstream when our beliefs run contrary to ingested dogma. Like the cult member we can be exorcised of what keeps us from breathing the fresh air and become reborn.
