    The Trolley Problem

    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...

    Mind Over Matter

    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...

    My Budgerigar Brain

    Neuro scientists tell us that our brain is built upon a reptilian lobe, another layer added, mammalian if memory serves me well, then our magnificent mysterious cerebral cortex built over that, giving us our amazing mind. My brain has some bird element to it. Budgerigar in my...

    The Young Mind

    I am often amazed at how fast young people can pick up a new language or a dance step. The power of the young mind is amazing. They just soak it up. Oh to be young again :).

    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...

    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...

    The Amazing Mind!

    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...

    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...
