2-1-11 the human mind: Mental simulation

Another profound ability of our brains:

The ability to take something we are imagining and test out the potential consequences of doing it

-          We force our brains to go through the experience virtually and figure out whether it is likely to do it or not

We can call it imagination + expectation. It is like extrapolation of certain deeds to get the potential, most logical results first in our brains before getting to do it for real
