Human memory is an interesting thing.
The weirdest things can trigger it.
Smell is pretty strong.
I remember one guy telling me when he knew the ghost of his grandmother was near.
When he was a kid, she would make banana bread on Sundays.
So it would be ready when they got back from church.
But occasionally, as an adult, he smells banana bread.
And there is not clear source for the banana bread smell.
The reason smells trigger memories is because smells happen much “deeper” in the brain.
If you’ve ever had a piece of data, that was right on the tip of your tongue, the harder you try to remember the harder it is.
Until you forget about it.
Now I Remember
When, when you least expect it, it pops right into your brain.
When we try to remember things, it’s really hard.
We tell ourselves to remember what to buy at the store, but we come home with different stuff.
We stand up, walk into a room and then forget why we were there.
We make a decision to do something, but keep that decision inside our brain, and later forget.
But we have a suspicion that we were supposed to do SOMETHING.
When trying to keep track of everything on our own, it’s pretty impossible.
But when some other “entity” keeps track of all that stuff, it’s pretty cool.
Who, or what is this other entity?
Imagine reading a book with a whole bunch of character arcs.
One where each particular arc gets a few pages.
In this case, the book is keeping track of all the ideas for you.
The same thing happens in movies, and serial dramas.
You “trust” the movie or drama to tie up everything in the end.
This is a common complaint about movies and TV shows.
They end with a whole bunch of loose ends.
Some of those are done on purpose, so we can CHOOSE how they ended.
Open Loop Love
The really well written ones leave us wondering.
A good kind of wondering.
Others, that are poorly written, leave us with a kind of “WTF?” kind of wondering.
Like they ran out of time, or money, or something.
We LOVE the idea of closure.
This is one of reasons we love movies that have a bit of uncertainty in the middle.
Will they get together, or not?
Will they catch the bad guy, or not?
What’s the REAL REASON all that unexplainable stuff is happening?
We love stories that create and solve these deep kinds of questions.
We have since the dawn of time.
Since we learned how to speak.
And since we have the deep instincts to appreciate stories like this, we also have the deep instincts to tell stories like this.
YOU have the deep instincts to tell stories like this.
From your mind, out of your mouth, and into their spellbound and transfixed minds.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
