The NLP Communications Model

Every school boy knows that science never proves anything. Yes it sometimes proves hypotheses, sometimes even disproves them. We can say that ‘proof’ arrived at by some process of perception may imply that such and such a supposition causes such and such an abstraction. How sound can our ‘truth’ of perception, based on an induction from a perception be? We base our realities on the basis of the rule of parsimony or Occam’s razor. That is a preference for the simplest assumption that will fit the facts.

If we consider that our own perceptual filters, our beliefs and values (some of which we may not even be consciously aware of) influence what we see, what we hear and what we feel. What we expect, will be in our map of the world.

We experience whatever is out there (reality) through our own neural circuits. So whatever radiation is received by say our eyes is passed through our receptors and converted into information for the brain. The brain then does some interpretation to create the image that we see with our eyes. This is what we see in the moment, not a memory of the event. 

When we recall a memory we access some part of our coded map of the world. Do you see the memory in full colour? Is it through your own eyes / can you see yourself? Do you recall all of the sounds clearly? More interestingly – do you recall the event exactly as you first coded it or could it have been mysteriously altered!
