My Favourite Guides. Psychologists Are Rethinking Their Cozy Relationship with Bush Torture Program. The top professional organization for psychologists is launching an independent investigation over how it may have sanctioned the brutal interrogation methods used against terror suspects by the Bush administration.

Psychologists Are Rethinking Their Cozy Relationship with Bush Torture Program

The American Psychological Association announced this week that it has tapped an unaffiliated lawyer, David Hoffman, to lead the review. In 2002, the American Psychological Association (APA) revised its code of ethics to allow practitioners to follow the “governing legal authority” in situations that seemed at odds with their duties as health professionals. Many argue that the revision, as well as a task force report in 2005 that affirmed that the code allowed psychologists to participate in national security interrogations, gave the Bush administration critical legal cover for torture.

Thanks , I wish there was more control over what is on each pearl as far as info . They should put a permanent area for a basic description of each pearl . And control of each pearls icon image . Similar to the pealtrees functions . That enables you to change the image and write a descriptive . It would be a great tool ! ;-) – mirlen101

" Abraham Maslow Maslow studied healthy people, most psychologists study sick people. The characteristics listed here are the results of 20 years of study of people who had the "full use and exploitation of talents, capacities, potentialities, etc.. " Self-actualization implies the attainment of the basic needs of physiological, safety/security, love/belongingness, and self-esteem.

    Changed approach on the Maslow Experiment. Sooooo sorry, but I lost a couple of your entries. Re-visit and see if it doesn't make better sense.

    The idea with the cube project is to map things much like they are here, except the maps are fractal 3-d webs representing connections. Your twists and turns through the map resemble the traveling of a object through an n-sphere. The zoom capacity allows for more precise or broader terms, increasing your travel demensionality exponentially. Ideally the things mapped with be theory, experiment results, research papers, postulates, and all known scientific fact. The plan is to make the net so intricate that we can begin to see where the holes are in it's massive, fractal expanses. Using the shape of these holes, we can begin to predict and guide our scientific advancement towards certain locations determined by probability that return the most net gain.

    Six >melatonin is good for dream research like OBE . Even small amounts can produce a lucid state in some people . What it does ( sometimes >depending on a person's makeup ) is intensifies and deepens the dream experiences . It puts you under faster and makes your dreams more intense . But becareful it can make dreams so intense they become nightmares ! The dosage that they put out over the counter is way too high for most people . More is not better when it comes to melatonin ! You should start with a very tiny amount and work your way up . I mean break that standard pill into tiny bits ! Doesn't work for everyone though ( long story ;-)

    Then there's the drug induced OBE . There's a numerous list of those ! Many tribal cultures used them in rituals . One could do a whole peartree section on those alone ! Sounds like a good idea ! ;-) Dangerous zone though !

    Six tell us more about this Cube Project ! I have a whole huge section here on Data visualization. And Mind Mapping etc....

    Then there's the lucid dreaming type OBE . I've had a few of those only one that I had set up purposely with any control though . Lasted just a few minutes but was pretty mind blowing ! You can train yourself but it isn't easy !
