Subconscious Mind and the Networks of Change
The Internet-of-the-Mind Blog is about the role of our subconscious mind in constructing our world in ways that best suits our internal functioning and how YOU can change your internal functioning, at the biological level, in order to bring more serenity and success to your life.
Neural networks are the actual biological location of change. Change does not take place without re-configuring existing neural connections or creating entirely new connections. The Internet-of-the-Mind is a metaphor for the “software” of our brain – neural networks…embedded in networks…embedded in networks… and so on. Just as software programs on a computer can be upgraded, so too can these internal networks of the subconscious mind.
As you explore these pages you will learn how at the core of most every human success or problem lies the neural networks of our subconscious mind. Armed with this information you can make lasting changes in any and every area of your life. Perhaps the information here will also demystify and explain why the so-called “Law of Attraction” works so well. The secret is in the power of the subconscious mind.
The Big Picture
One look at our external world demonstrates how the subconscious mind has reflected itself in our surroundings and the systems in which we operate. For example, have you ever noticed these external networks…embedded in networks…embedded in networks… and so on.
- We grow up in a network called family
- Our family exists in a network called a neighborhood
- Our neighborhood exists in a network called community
- Our communities exist in networks called counties
- Our counties exist in networks called states/provinces
- Our states/provinces exist in a network called country
- Our Countries exists a global network called the world
- Our world exists in a network of planets called our solar system
- Our solar system exists in a network of solar systems called galaxy
- Our galaxy exists in a network of galaxies called the Universe
Even more examples of networks embedded in our lives…
- We are connected to various networks of people we call friends, classmates, coworkers, colleagues, organizations, etc.
- We do Business with networks of customers, subscribers, and vendors.
- We communicate through networks of telephones and the Internet – a network of websites each consisting of networks of web pages, email lists, newsletters – and let’s not forget the network we call the “grapevine”.
- Corporations are merging into networks called conglomerates.
- Companies cannot operate without networks called departments which cannot operate without a network of employees.
- Energy is distributed through networks called power grids.
- We travel on networks of highways and through networks of airports.
- And none of these external networks can be changed without internal adjustments being made in someone’s neural networks – often called thinking “outside the box”.
Networks of the Subconscious Mind
That’s not all — Even the synapses of our neural networks consist of networks of neurochemicals…each consisting of a network of molecules… each consisting of a network of atoms…each consisting of a network of protons and electrons revolving around a nucleus.
It appears to me that God constructed life itself in an incredibly intricate network of biological, psychological, social, and environmental networks…embedded in networks…embedded in networks.
Our Internet-of-the-mind Blog is a network of resources… tips, tools, and information about the neural networks of the subconscious mind, personal growth, counseling, and therapy. It’s a place you can come to find specific information, help, and self-help materials focused on your topic of interest…

“Thawing Addiction – The Tip of the Iceberg” is the 5th book in Don Carter’s Thawing the Iceberg Series. Addiction comes in many forms and while each of them has their own idiosyncrasies, recovery from them is generally the same process. Carter believes “What works for most people – works for most people!” The more than 200 Twelve-Step programs available today are testimony that what works for addiction is the Twelve-Step recovery process in the vast majority of cases. But beginning a Twelve-Step journey begins AFTER transition from a lifestyle of addiction to a lifestyle based upon recovery.
In Thawing Addiction, the author draws upon more than 30 years of service in the treatment of addiction to outline the most critical issues to be faced during the transition, stabilization, and early stages of recovery. Anyone struggling with any type of addiction will benefit from understanding and addressing these critical issues.

That first step is based upon all of the knowledge outlined in the preceding chapters.
