Broadband sensing is an vital and integral part of the oldest, original way of staying alive. For animals it is a balance for all their active focussed sensing and when dozing.

Broadband sensing doesn't lead to the same mental problems, and it doesn't have the same ingenious creative potential that focussing has. By itself it would not solve anything, we would starve or get eaten. Animals must focus and react once they perceive food or danger. The value of broadband sensing lies in balancing and alternating it with focussed sensing.

Our culture has developed some ingenious and valuable balances for our focussed work mode. Entertainment, where we focus on someone else who is focussed on entertaining us. Religions, where we have a higher focal point or image. Creative art and music, where we focus with our imagination.

But, from a broadband perspective, the way we try and balance our 'doing-focussing-working time' with our 'free time' is ironical.

Animals don't balance their focussing activities with more focussing on being creative or having fun. Being creative is a wonderful human activity. And i've nothing against play or having fun. Play is an amazing balance for work. But broadbanding is the way animals balance all of these.

Sleep is considered as the main balance for the days activity. Animals even balance their sleep with broadbanding.

There is one especially extremely ironical case.

I believe many people of faith and practice, experience mental effects which i could call broadband thinking; but most of these people, these disciples of truth and the spirit, have a preconditioned belief that the senses lead to dukkha, (understood as suffering), or the devil. And so, from a broadband perspective, the problem is that in almost all of these, we close the windows and the eyes, focus on an image or internal mantra or prayer, listen for inner peace in the silence, and breath without smelling.

From my perspective this directly contradicts the broadband balance. See Chapter 4 : Demystification of Religions.
