ESL Activity: training your listening skills, vocabulary, comprehension, language and grammar. Designed for Upper Intermediate or Advanced level of English.
– Listen to this video, dividing it into chunks of about 15 to 20 minutes. Then, listen to that part again, maybe two or three more times. Try doing the activity for that chunk. Once you think you have finished or done your best, use the key to correct your-self.
* ESL activity flexibility: You can make this activity more difficult or challenging by just listening without reading the subtitles, or make it easier by reading them.
– Activity 1 – Answer these questions:
1- What is the consequence of backward rationalization?
2- What does the brain try to justify?
3- What are our experiences constantly changing?
4- What are brain waves?
5- What frequencies can you mention?
6- What does each frequency correspond to ?
7- What is cognitive dissonance?
8- What are mirror neurons for?
9- What are superorganismal features?
10- What do selfish-genes promote?
11- What have we learnt about the current nature of the brain?
12- What is a chain-reaction?

– Activity 2 – listen and complete this transcript: (pause the video frequently, short chunks, so as to have time to write and remember what you have understood, but not to read the subtitles or to copy what is on screen, the goal is to train for listening skills. What is important is to acquire and develop the abilities of listening, understanding and writing at the same time to gain brain attention, memory, focus and agility)
– empathy neurons
– memory consolidation and reconsolidation
– backward rationalization: it can leave ________ __________unresolved and ready to be triggered at any time
– the brain tries to justify _______ we behave _______ (with no control over our ____________, and the __________that originate those ______________)
– in consequence (of backward rationalization and brain justification), schizophrenic ____________ behaviour because of different ____________distributed systems around our brain
– emotional resilence
– rational resilence
– our experiences are constantly changing our ________ ___________, altering the parallel systems that are our consciousness
– consciousness: the convergence of neural interaction
– where is consciousness? on the right hemisphere? on the left hemisphere? in both?
– each neuron has a _________, reaching a certain voltage they fire _________signals to another ___________, forming waves
– these _______ ________underpin almost everything in our minds: memory, intelligence, attention, etc
– these brain waves _______at different _________ : alpha, ________ and __________, each corresponding to different __________
– brain cells are tuned to these frequencies depending on the tast to be performed (similarly to how a radio at home catches the waves to tune or pick up the different radio stations)
– transfering information: the pass of information from one _________to another happens when they are ___________(cognitive dissonance: confusion when receiving two _________ideas, for example with the anthropological questions: the purpose of human existance when humans are so insignificant or meaningless in the huge vast universe)
– evolution: nature tries to adapt or ___________-with its environment
– as science fails or is slow to provide answers to existential questions, humans seek for spiritual or religious guidance, it is very difficult to leave un-answered questions or to accept we do not know, we tend to prefer tales and stories, even when fictional, to calm our need for answers.
– mirror neurons: used to construct our _________, allowing us to __________with others (other person’s neurons, neurons in the environment around us). Allowing to __________ourselves through others.
– neural synergy: produce our oscillating _________, the result of 2 hemispheres acting _____________, and also, our senses connecting our neurons to other neurons in the ____________–
– super organismal features: our __________as primates depended on our ___________ abilities
– neocortical regions have __________to permit the modulation and control over ___________instincts and hedonistic impulses for the benefit of the ____________.
– selfish-genes (theory of evolution by biologist Richard Dawkins): selfish genes __________ ___________ social _________in superorganismal structures (discarding the notion of “survival of the ____________”)
– neuronal resonance coherence: is obtained when there is no __________between the _______and _______(more primitive) areas of the brain
– self-serving behaviour for the scientific view (or selfish tendencies for the flawed paradigm of identity): is a ________expression of an ever- changing unity with no centre. The ____________consequences of this as an objective belief system allow self-____________without attachement to the imagined self, causing mental __________, social conscience, self-regulation, and “being in the moment”.
– culturally (from the past to the present) we have needed a narrative: a ________view on our life to establish moral values.
– currently (today) we have learnt about the _________ and ___________ nature of the brain and that a more scientific view without attachments to our identity or story, generates a more accurate, meaningful and ethical paradigm than our anecdotal values.
– practical labeling: all forms of interactions in our life
– psychological labeling: the self is considered internal and the environment is considered external, constrains our chemical processes experiencing a deluded disconnection.
– happiness: is reached when we are not labeled in our interactions
– we may have many different views, and disagree with one another in practical terms
– neuropsychological catalysts: interactions without ____________, to wire our brains to acknowledge others and verify other belief systems without disonance, aliviating the need for ____________or entertainment. And generating _____________behaviour in our environment.
– chain-reaction: we are a ________of neuro-____________ reactions, acceptance and acknowledgment sustained by our daily ___________ in our interactions, so chain-reaction will define our collective ability to overcome ________________differences.
