The Television

If I ask you, ‘how many fingers do you have’, you will be able to answer it in the blink of an eye, did you ever think, why?

When you watch a movie and someone asks you about the movie, you are able to explain the minor details immediately and the basic concept of the movie, even after a year.


When a new TV is bought and turned on, you normally experience a hissing sound and a white screen with black dots [white noise] on your TV. As soon as it [the TV] is properly tuned-in, you can hear a perfect sound with a crystal clear picture to enjoy.


The pic above is a raw head of a student with a grim face, as the student is trying to understand the subject s/he is studying, but unable to do so. The two knobs attached to his/her forehead are IQ [Intelligence Quotient] on the left and EQ [Emotional Quotient] on the right and these knobs are for him/her to make use of, to fine-tune his/her mind to get the clear picture on the screen of his/her mind. The wires are the neurotransmitters used to send and receive signals. 

“Creation of new information by the brain can be very difficult especially when it is not linked to any relevant information already stored, the capacity to process brand new bits of information is limited and requires a great deal of attention.” [Learning Mind]

You as a student are, Television [new to the world], your parents are the Power Socket [funding your education], your teacher and the subject you are studying is the Channel and the courses you will be studying during your educational career are provided by the Cable Operator [the institute]. 

The concept shared by a teacher in the class is like a signal not received properly by you and as you have not fine-tuned your mind to receive the signal (concept), because either you are not interested in the course or you are not inclined to study at all. So every bit of information shared by the teacher in the class acts as a ‘white noise’ on the screen of your mind.

In order for you to get hold of the concept, you need to put in a concerted effort to fine-tune your mind into learning the concept being shared in the class by the teacher, by eliminating the white noise [unwanted thoughts] while in the class and engaging yourself by completely immersing into the shared information written in the book, while lying in your bed [in the comfort of your home].


When your mind is fine-tuned to completely grasp the concept, you can get ready to appear in the exam and since the concept is loud and clear in your mind like a film, so everything you will be writing in the exam would be like describing the film running in your mind and you will be bound to succeed with ‘flying’ colors in the exams. 

During the primary classes, we used to hear the uttering of our teacher ‘Learn-by-heart’.


You can motivate yourself to study not for the sake of studying but for the sake of understanding the intricacies of the world, you are in, by synchronizing the concepts in the book with the frequency of your mind to resonate with the tune of the universe, using this analogy.
