Life[edit] David Bohm. David Joseph Bohm FRS[1] (; 20 December 1917 – 27 October 1992) was an American scientist who has been described as one of the most significant theoretical physicists of the 20th century[2] and who contributed unorthodox ideas to quantum theory, neuropsychology and the philosophy of mind.

David Bohm

Bohm warned of the dangers of rampant reason and technology, advocating instead the need for genuine supportive dialogue, which he claimed could broaden and unify conflicting and troublesome divisions in the social world. In this, his epistemology mirrored his ontology.[5] Due to his Communist affiliations, Bohm was the subject of a federal government investigation in 1949, prompting him to leave the United States.

He pursued his scientific career in several countries, becoming first a Brazilian and then a British citizen. How we change what others think, believe, feel and do. David Eagleman.

What is HeartMath? HeartMath research has demonstrated that different patterns of heart activity (which accompany different emotional states) have distinct effects on cognitive and emotional function.

What is HeartMath?

During stress and negative emotions, when the heart rhythm pattern is erratic and disordered, the corresponding pattern of neural signals traveling from the heart to the brain inhibits higher cognitive functions. This limits our ability to think clearly, remember, learn, reason, and make effective decisions. The heart’s input to the brain during stressful or negative emotions also has a profound effect on the brain’s emotional processes – actually serving to reinforce the emotional experience of stress.

Schizophrenia: Natural Remedies

Roberts [Director: Schizophrenia Drug-free Crisis Centre] The neuroleptic 'medications' prescribed (or forcefully administered) for schizophrenia are not medicines which heal, but rather toxic drugs which can produce permanent disability, irreversible brain damage, even death. [See the 1991 book Toxic Psychiatry, by Peter Breggin, MD, or visit his website at <>] Alarmingly, over half of the people receiving 'treatment' for schizophrenia are being forcefully drugged. In the vast majority of cases, schizophrenia is an acute psychospiritual crisis which has usually been triggered by a traumatic life conflict.

Core Beliefs

It is this common set of beliefs that brings the members together and gives them a common purpose. It is in the humanistic tradition that individuals are happier and less stressed when they are able to act in a congruent manner. This means that actions in the outside world are consistent with their most deeply held inner beliefs. The Psychodynamics of Memetic Mediation. The concept of memetic mediation arose from Peter Limberg and Connor Barnes’s article “The Memetic Tribes of Culture War 2.0” as a strategy for helping bridge divides between warring “memetic tribes.”[1] In the article, Limberg and Barnes outline a recent history of conflict in the United States context, and how it has fractured from a binary antagonism (“left” vs.

This concept of memetic mediation is also summarized by Peter Limberg in this issue, and so I won’t focus on summary in this article. For some of us, the distinction between the two starts to dissolve. I argue that this is a natural extension of the common contemplative goal of non-dual awakening, which has been framed as an attenuating sense of a self that is perceived as separate from the environmental and social context from which it arises.
