The origin of the universe, the essence of the matter, the nature of human mind – these are the thoughtful questions that have engaged intellectuals for centuries. Until recently, understanding the mind has remained an obscure quest, in part for powerful research tools were not available.

Today, the world is in the heart of bizarre deluge of scientific work on the brain and mind, on the neural processes occurring during learning and thought, in the process of learning and thinking, and on the development of know-how.

Education has been focused to the acquisition of precise skills: calculating, writing and simple reading.

Now, almost everyone requires high literacy aspects to tackle modern life intricacies successfully.
