in thread Women Programmers, Sex, Tai Chi and Reincarnation

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}

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

    back in the day we didnt have no old school
