Abstract:

On the 1st of March, Mr. Adeel took the stage to deliver the fifth lecture of the KSS lecture series, titled “دماغ کی سائنس” His presentation immediately caught the audience’s attention with vibrant graphics displayed on the screen, showcasing his adeptness at capturing the audience’s interest.

 

His opener: “I’ll start with eight different stories today,” instantly drew in listeners of all ages. 

 

In these 8 tales, profound lessons were woven. In the first story, “The Haunted Classroom,” Mr. Adeel demonstrated how far the brain can stretch its thinking when faced with uncertainty. The second story, “Half Brain“, revealed the brain’s remarkable capabilities, followed by a discussion on self-imposed limitations in the fourth story about the placebo effect. The fifth story introduced the concept of the second brain in our bodies, the stomach – with Mr. Adeel dedicating fifteen minutes to explain the crucial link between diet and well-being.

 

Stories six, seven, and eight delved into various aspects of training the brain to maintain calmness, addressing issues such as anxiety and hypertension. Emphasizing the importance of a good night’s sleep, Mr. Adeel underscored the significance of a good night’s sleep for the younger generation.

Following the talk, the audience was led through a meditation exercise, with the entire auditorium participating. Questions from the children added an interactive element to the session, with one particularly relatable inquiry standing out:

Sir, you mentioned that if I relax before studying, I’ll focus more, but whenever I relax, I end up falling asleep at my desk. What should I do?

Laughter ensued, showing how other students could relate.

As the session continued, it turned into a dynamic interaction filled with questions and stories. One of the most surprising moments came when Mr. Adeel claimed he had slept next to a lion outside his window. Was it just a story? The mind wrestles with doubt, yet there’s a sense of trust in Mr. Adeel’s words. What a dilemma for our brains indeed!

 

Snippets of the day!
