“The ultimate knowledge of life requires not the annulment of incongruity however the achievement of serenity inside and above it.”- Rienhold Nieburh
Are you performing in your proper thoughts? The 2 hemispheres of our mind have very disparate features. The left hemisphere of our mind could be very cognitive. It controls our speech, comprehension, numerical abilities, and writing. The proper hemisphere controls our creativity, spatial capability, and creative and musical abilities. To a point these incongruent features are at all times at play in any efficiency we undertake. Maybe this at the very least partially explains a few of our most embarrassing efficiency gaffes.
The fluidity of our efficiency, regardless of how distinctive, will depend on the cross-brain integration of our two hemispheres. There’ll at all times be current an unravelling of some cognitive and a few spatial abilities included in time and in situ to yield a profitable efficiency.
Contemplate the final time you had an unexplainable breakdown in your efficiency. It could have been a spatial demand that was unmet since you had been in your head an excessive amount of. Or, it could have been a cognitive processing demand that was challenged and never met. Extremely regarded musical performers have confessed to at instances demonstrating anomalies of atonality that appear to come back from nowhere.
“Life is a desert of shifting sand dunes. Unpredictable. Erratic. Concord adjustments into dissonance, the fast outlives the profound, esoteric turns into cliched. And, vice versa.”- Ella Leya
Dissonance is often referenced to be about cognitive dissonance. Nevertheless, dissonance can theoretically be any lack of synchronicity or concord; any lack of settlement between or inside folks or issues. So, why not efficiency dissonance? Certainly, we will see detriments to efficiency as being associated to some type of dissonance or incongruity within the performer. We even say, “I used to be out of sync.” Or, in a workforce setting, “we weren’t on the identical web page.” Repetitious phrases like these are inclined to substantiate the purported actuality of an idea of efficiency dissonance. So, how can we attain consonance?
“Allow us to gentle our lantern: in textbook language, dissonance is a component of transition, a posh or interval of tones that isn’t full in itself and that should be resolved to the ear’s satisfaction into excellent consonance.”
Though Stravinsky is speaking about music, he may have simply been speaking about an accountant, or an athlete, or a chef, or a dentist. The ear may be depicted as a form of metaphor for the cross-brain integration that both helps or denies one’s efficiency. After we stick with an instance of our ears one solely wants to consider how “white noise” can intrude with our capability to deal with the duty. Ask any skilled golfer about extraneous noises whereas in the course of their backswing. Dissonance melts down efficiency like a warmth wave within the Arctic. Consonance inside efficiency evolves if and provided that our cross-brain integration processes refine and finally remove dissonance.
