The Biology of Bliss and the Human Operating System (Jamie Wheal)
“We are all falling behind the evolutionary curve”, says Jamie Wheal, Director of the Flow Genome Project. That is, all of us except for elite athletes and high-performing military, who know something you don’t — and they have an incentive to keep it that way.
Their secret is the ability to willfully access “optimal states of consciousness” called Flow. According to a ten-year McKinsey study, Flow makes you 500% more productive.
If we imagine these Flow experiences on an intensity scale, what’s happening at the extreme end of the spectrum?
Wheal reveals what happens at the peaks of these peak experiences — and it’s an undertaking only for those willing to set aside general wellbeing for something “north of happy.”
So, what is north of happy? Check out this mind-bending talk from Jamie Wheal for a “peak” at what’s ahead of the evolutionary curve for human potential.
