Thoughts, brain waves, electrical impulses firing at the speed of light ...

Thoughts seem to dance to a tune we can't hear, led by rules we don't know.  Have you ever considered that all your thoughts may not be your thoughts? 

Is there a way to control those electrical impulses that seem to drive you crazy at times?  There is more than one way but there is at least one answer you know - meditation.  The pure action of taking a moment to stop, quiet, be still, meditate is one scientifically proven way to - calm the mind.  And maybe some of our teachers had it right - can you remember them saying, "sit down & shut up"?
