Power of the brain
The brain has unlimited power, It is one of the most complex structures and can process much more information than supercomputers.

Q.
Who has more processing power ?
A.
By estimation, the brain has about 100 million MIPS worth of processing power while recent super-computers only has a few million MIPS worth in processor speed.

Q.
Does your brain outpower a computer?
A.
The brain consists of something on the order of 200,000,000,000 neurons, each interfaced with up to a thousand others. When you start working out how many data points that can entail, you'll realize that the most complex artificial computer imaginable can't come close to replicating our thought processes. As a simple answer to your question, you thought to ask the question; a computer wouldn't because it can't think.

Anatomy of the brain
Just like we have 2 hands, 2 legs, 2 eyes, 2 ears, Our brain has 2 hemispheres, the left brain and right brain.

Each side of the brain processes information completely differently. If only one side of the brain were working , depending on which side was active, we would see completely different actions.

The left brain is the more logical part, it is detail oriented, uses facts , used for math and science,
however the right brain is the more creative part. It is one that controls imagination, visualization, it is “big picture” oriented,


Examples :

1. Linear vs holistic approach
2. Inside out vs Outside in
3. Drawing a map vs giving directions
4. Having a vision vs putting it in action


Importance of the Right Side.


The right side is the more imaginative , creative, It is the side incharge of visualization. It is the side that deals with pictures.

Facts are Facts, everyone knows and learns facts.. which is very important, what we do with the facts is what makes us different.

There are 1000’s of cellphones , but what gave the iphone success, it was the extra creativity, the touch and feel concept.

Everyone has come across different difficult situations, a lot of time the situations demand thinking outside the box. This thinking outside the box is controlled by the right side of the brain.

Research shows

From http://www.viewzone.com/bicam.html

Experiments show that most children rank highly creative (right brain) before entering school. Because our educational systems place a higher value on left brain skills such as mathematics, logic and language than it does on drawing or using our imagination, only ten percent of these same children will rank highly creative by age 7. By the time we are adults, high creativity remains in only 2 percent of the population.

At CLC, we focus on developing the right side of the brain by having various exercise where the child is made to visualize and picture beads, He is taught how to process the beads and imagine the Abacus. It is this that trains the brain to use more of the right side, To build a photographic memory.

Coordination of both sides

Both sides of the brain are equally important, just like we use both our hands for different functions.. Even though some of us might be left handed and rest right handed, the coordination of both hands produces best results eg. We need to use both hands in in typing on the computer or playing the piano.. similarly the coordination of BOTH sides of the brain is important.

Ideally, both brains work together in people with optimum mental ability.
The coordinating ability of both sides is the key to superior intellectual abilities.

The Right side will enable us to have a mission /vision.. and the left side will provide us with the necessary tools to achieve it. The better the two sides work together the more the success will be achieved.

Each side of our body is controlled by the opposite side of the brain. AT CLC, The constant translation of numbers to beads and Working with Abacus demands concentration and coordinated interaction of both eyes, both hands and thus both sides the brain promoting the development of both sides. Providing complete brain development.
