in reply to Women Programmers, Sex, Tai Chi and Reincarnation

Hello:

interesting

one thing of note is that the physical makeup
of the male and female brain is different

i have read that the female brain has more
connections between the left and right hemispheres
what does this mean?

supposedly it means that men have better cognitive abilities
{on average}
and women are better at spacial memory

also i have to say tai chi and chi kung are great exercise

i can say ive slipped in the summer
but it greatly improves your
state of mind and health

toodles

back in the day we didnt have no old school

    How on earth can they say that with little to no real understanding of how the brain actually performs cognitive functions?

    One interesting phenomenon detailed by the Holographic Universe was the effect of conciousness on scientific studies, and how generally accepted beliefs manifest themselves in the world. For instance, neutrinos may or may not have mass, depending on the beliefs of the physicist involved. In the US it's massless, in Russia not. The books suggest that it's not an experimental error, but the physicist is actually changing the way that the particles behave. Very bizarre, and kind of makes a mockery of science. Hence the refusal by the Orthodox scientific community to accept the model.

      yes!

      brain does not nessicarily mean mind!

      caveat: even though i read something
      doesnt mean im not skeptical!

      i remeber having this great discussion
      with a friend of mine who just got
      her masters in psychology

      i asked her how one could go about making an
      closed environment for experimentation
      after all everything is in
      a symbiotic harmony right?

      i also asked her if it was possible to
      quantify the emotional content of an experiment

      of course she had no answers
      and she wondered why this has been so avoided

      im not sure either and of course i have my theories

      another thing of interest ,
      that you point towards is the
      ability to define an experiment
      and what you think the outcome should be

      what this meant is that one
      scientist could think this should happen and it would
      while another would try to prove another angle and get that too
      the mind has a powerful influence on the outcome of things
      mostly i think this is because
      as stated earlier we do not live in a closed system

      btw
      if your into tai chi and chi kung id suggest
      reading anything by mantak chia
