    Mind Games

    As I read the titles, stories, and things like profile names, I am so amazed at what people have come up with. The human mind is such a wonderful instrument, it is too bad not everyone uses theirs. The way people think of their subjects and names is so much like an art. The...

    The Pharmaceutical Industry Is Perpetrating A Hoax

    Remember the ‘good old days’ when, if you were depressed or anxious, you’d just call your mother or your best friend and cry on their shoulder. They’d listen to you, maybe give you a little advice, and tell you that everything would be okay. You could rant and rave, and...

    The Power Of The Human Mind

    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...

    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...

    Mind

    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 human mind is not just capable of

    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...
