    Sublime and subtle. Flickering thoughts like

    ocean waves. Intricate and complex like a spider web.. jump on the web to understand and you are trapped over and over again. To see the pattern one has to be observer without ideas or judgements of the pattern. Is it so?

    Mind is such a thing that is still not fully discovered by us. We humans know only a small percentage of it. The things it does is unthinkable. I can hear in the irony in my sentence but this is true. The discoveries we make the inventions we do are all due to this mind of ours...

    The Biology Of Homo Sapiens Sapiens

    I love biology, to be more specific, I love the biology of humans. I am a tad bias when it comes to choosing between science and religion, but either way, if God or which ever larger than life entity created man, or the big bang, the human mind is an incredible thing. I would...

    Psychology is my forte, and as far back as i can remember i have always been fascinated and amazed by the way the human mind works, what is it that makes us who we are the way we think and the things we do, how we control our emotions, and behaviours, but also about the power of...

    Creative Or Destructive

    The Human mind can be perceived in a variety of ways. The struggle, the challenge, is coming to realize it can be the ultimate manifestation of positive creativity, destructively damaging, or even apathetic byproducts. For a long time I struggled with the question of morality in...

    I think we love with our minds.

    When a heart is transplanted from one body to the next it doesn't transfer the loves of that heart to the new body... The new body's person still loves their loves... So I thus feel we love with our minds... Our minds are powerful. What's even more powerful is our choice to...
