Where is The Mind?: Science gets puzzled and almost admits a non-local mentalscape.

West Virginia beckons tomorrow morning and off I will go to whatever that entails. As I said in one of the commentary responses the other day, I hope that reading two journal runs "cover-to-cover" will bring up a few thoughts worth sharing. This day's entry was inspired by two articles bumped into coincidentally which had scientists puzzling about a holographic universe and a non-local mind. Those scientists would cringe to see how I've taken their sign-posts-on-the-path, but that is their hang-up, not mine. The first of these articles [both from the New Scientist] was "Where in the World is the Mind? " That brings in the second serendipitous article. It reminded me then, also, of a moment when I was able to spend a [too short] time with David Bohm, the famous theoretical physicist.

How We Create Reality

E SE IL TEMPO NON ESISTESSE AFFATTO? Traduco e sintetizzo nel seguito un lungo articolo apparso di recente su, ad opera di Brandon West, creatore di Project Global Awakening: “un sito dedicato alla ricerca di varie discipline spirituali e scientifiche e alla loro applicazione per la tua conoscenza e per aiutarti a vivere una vita ispirata e cambiare il mondo” (c.b.)


E se tutto accadesse simultaneamente? E se il tempo non esistesse affatto? Ho visto di recente una descrizione dell’universo, come percepito in fisica. Per citare William Brown (da non confondersi con il William Brown che lavora per il Resonance Project): “Ciò che la scienza ha scoperto esplorando i livelli profondi della realtà, è che il nostro universo è strutturato in strati di creazione. Strati di creazione, dal livello classico e diverso, in superficie, delle percezioni quotidiane, ai livelli più profondi: le molecole, gli atomi, i nuclei, le particelle subatomiche, i mondi nei mondi.” The Biology of Belief: Here's How to Change Your Reality. "So many of us are leading limited lives not because we have to but because we think we have to.

The Biology of Belief: Here's How to Change Your Reality

" Many people believe they are who they are, and that they have limited means to change their health or life direction. "It is what it is," they say, "because of my genetic makeup". Well, maybe not. What does this mean, "we think we have to"? According to Dr. The Biology of Belief is a bold exploration of the biochemical effects of brain functioning. And yes, that includes healing from addiction! .In the second part of our interview, Dr. How your brain runs quality control on memories.

How your brain runs quality control on memories

The human brain regions responsible for working memory content also gauge the quality, or uncertainty, of memories, researchers have discovered. The new study uncovers how these neural responses allow us to act and make decisions based on how sure we are about our memories. “Access to the uncertainty in our working memory enables us to determine how much to ‘trust’ our memory in making decisions,” explains Hsin-Hung Li, a postdoctoral fellow in New York University’s psychology department and Center for Neural Science and the lead author of the paper in the journal Neuron. False memories: why we experience tricks of the mind. Rob Nash had been excited to meet the former British newsreader Trevor McDonald at his sister’s graduation ceremony.

“He was getting some kind of honorary degree,” Nash recalls. “I was sat right at the back, so all I could see was that he was wearing this awful, garishly multicoloured graduation robe. Meditation-Induced Near-Death Experiences. Method Participants Each participant of study 1 underwent one SSI that corresponded to their first MI-NDE of year 1 (or of year 2 or 3 in the event the participant was unavailable to complete the SSI in year 1).

Meditation-Induced Near-Death Experiences

Procedure Participants were requested to contact the research team as soon as possible after having completed an MI-NDE practice. Effetti della Meditazione a lungo termine – Istituto di Yoga Firenze. 10 Amazing Examples of Mind Over Matter. Humans While we often think of our bodies and minds as two distinct entities, it turns out they are much more entwined than we might assume.

10 Amazing Examples of Mind Over Matter

Researchers are continually finding evidence that the brain has a distinct power to manipulate the body’s physiology. As these 10 examples show, the mind/body connection can work in our favor or detriment, depending on our knowledge of a situation and our ability to control our thoughts. Judging by their ability to meditate for hours on end, to abstain from food for days, and their vows of silence, most us would agree that Tibetan Monks have better control over their minds and bodies than the average person.

Coincidence is an Illusion - What is Synchronicity?

If so, then you have just taken a step into the amazing world of Synchronicity. What happens in most people’s lives is beyond their control. Physicists Say Consciousness Might Be a State of Matter — NOVA Next. It’s not enough to have a brain.

Physicists Say Consciousness Might Be a State of Matter — NOVA Next

Consciousness—a hallmark of humans, mammals, birds, and even octopuses—is that mysterious force that makes all those neurons and synapses “tick” and merge into “you.” It’s what makes you alert and sensitive to your surroundings, and it’s what helps you see yourself as separate from everything else. But neuroscientists still don’t know what consciousness is, or how it’s even possible. So MIT’s Max Tegmark is championing a new way of explaining it: he believes that consciousness is a state of matter.

How, Exactly, Do Our Brains Construct Reality? ‹ Literary Hub. Will Storr on the Neuroscience Behind the World We See In order to tell the story of your life, your brain needs to conjure up a world for you to live inside, with all its colors and movements and objects and sounds.

In 1982 a remarkable event took place. Cases of Time Slips. A white Ford pickup pulled up to cattle pasture near Ponca City, Oklahoma, in early Fall 1971, and stopped at a gate. Karl, Mark, and Gordon worked for cattle feed distributor and were sent to this remote area to pick up a feeder. What they found there has kept them silent for 41 years. “We opened the gate, which was barbed wire with no lock, and entered,” Karl said. “We went on the property, which was covered with grass up to and over the hood of the truck.” They drove through the tall grass to the tank that sat close to a red barn and got out of the truck. The philosophy of The Matrix. In The Matrix (Andy and Larry Wachowski, 1999) Keanu Reeves plays a computer programmer who leads a double life as a hacker called “Neo”. After receiving cryptic messages on his computer monitor, Neo begins to search for the elusive Morpheus (Laurence Fishburn), the leader of a clandestine resistance group, who he believes is responsible for the messages.

Eventually, Neo finds Morpheus, and is then told that reality is actually very different from what he, and most other people, perceives it to be. Morpheus tells Neo that human existence is merely a facade. TO UNDERSTAND IS TO PERCEIVE PATTERNS. Hypnagogia and Hypnopompia. Hypnagogia is the imagery, sounds and strange bodily feelings that are felt at “sleep onset.” This is a simplification though, as researchers have noted hypnagogic imagery in the lab at periods of quiet wakefulness as well as stage 1 sleep. Others have correlated hypnagogia with pre-sleep alpha waves and also REM intrusion into sleep onset. The truth is that the wake-sleep transition is still not understood. And neither are its trippy visuals. whispy lights, multi-dimentional geometric objects, or a sudden image like a stranger’s face.
