    #56 @Jim Murray It should also be noted that in the last week alone; the exponential increase in the number of nations rapidly moving toward isolationist, nationalistic/protectionist positions with a simultaneous increase in the influence of extreme right wing/neofascist political parties is something that hasn't been seen in a long time...indeed, your very own recent post (Attn: Canadians...popular vote going to Hillary...We of course are above that sort of thing...) --humorous/tounge-in-cheek; yes ...underlying nationalist passive-aggressive expression of Canadian moral superiority --also yes. I remember a while ago --at the very beginning of the Trump Campaign; (when nobody was taking it seriously at all)...saying: "It's all very funny/entertaining...right up until the second that it isn't..."

    #56 @Jim Murray Yes the original Milgram studies were designed as a sort of "post-mortem" of the Nuremberg courts...to resolve a nasty debate among academics as to whether the "only following orders thing " was an anomaly (a predisposition of "Germanic Culture") or whether the indoctrination to obey authority figures (parents, teachers, law enforcement officials, etc.) was pretty much universal in Western Cultures --built in to the "Romantic-Classical Dualism" in all societies built up from "Aristotelean Reason"...i.e., The USA, Canada, etc...Milgram demonstrated that horrific events requiring "Nuremberg type" war tribunal remediation were were just as likely to be required in Washington D.C. , Toronto, London, Paris, etc...at anytime --as a function of a sweeping reversal of economic fortune in nations; creating a zeitgeist in which (potentially "crazy") populist leaders appeared on the scene --with a message that resonated strongly enough...

    I seem to recall that the Nuremburg courts found that blind obedience to authority was no excuse. I kind of read between the lines here and have to tell you that I believe, In America, as of January whatever, civil disobedience will climb to astronomical levels. Mainly because the authority figures are not going to be respected. Some will blindly obey and those are the ones you want to steer clear of. You say you want a revolution...right after Christmas.

Because I used words almost guaranteed to keep folks from deploying "Phaedrus's analytic knife"...to even bother separating "what a thing is" versus "what a thing means"...it's all gone to far; IMO

    #40 @Phil Friedman As I am sure you know --in the famous Milgram Studies, 85% of ordinary citizens of New Haven Connecticut (in the early 1960's --volunteering to participate in a "Learning Experiment" for which they were paid $4.50)...were willing to electrocute a stranger (for incorrectly memorizing a list of words) because a guy in a white lab coat with a clipboard said: "administer the next shock and continue the experiment"...the "path lighting" on the route to hell probably flickers due to massive voltage fluctuations

    So, Gerald, no matter what a man does, "...If he does so with a pure thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him...."? That would seem to suggest that acts of murder, even genocide are okay, provided one does them for the "right" reason(s). However, the Second Scroll of The Wisdom of Chung King (circa 650 AD) says, "Beware of he who performs dastardly acts without conscious malice, because a pure heart is always accompanied by an empty mind." Eichmann showed us that evil can truly be banal, but none the less evil. And The road to hell is often lit with "pure" intentions.

    I think about the sixties a very selfish and self-absorbed decade that ran over into the seventies. I think about the places I lived with the sexual predators and rampant promiscuity. I think about that and I think about "It was just the times we were living through," but there are always "times" and it took half of my lifetime to find my own values.

    #57 Dear Joanne, just to add to your thoughts ...from some reading I had done recently. I share thus:
    Observing thoughts as they surface and get replaced by other thoughts is Awareness. (This is generally done by observing the Breath calmly in a sitting posture, with closed eyes). Being deep in thought, evaluating an idea, process or concept is Contemplation. Focusing mentally on a Thought form/idea/ sound is akin to Meditation. A great lot of importance is given to the breathing rhythm and frequency which resonates with our thoughts and even health.

    #33 Jawad Bhai! Thank you for the kind words! Everyone we meet here on this platform connects us either to the past, the present or the future. And helps us Branch out. Take deeper root. As fractals. As forms. As ideators. As creators. As rationalists. Or otherwise - setting up a flow. To help us Grow. I get so distraught at the paucity of time! So much to share and catch up on, but I steal moments off and on to read, respond, participate and share the best I can. My beBee interface is almost always on through the waking hours. I am a short-form communicator mostly. I have been writing off and on through the years, but in short couplets, paras, even doggerel, that fits the thoughts. But I believe I can get into a blogging mode eventually.

    #57 #58 First, let me say how wonderful it is to see you on beBee @Joanne Swecker. Your comment is proof already of what a wonderful contribution you are and will be making to this site. Your comment is beautifully written and conceived. No less is the proof that it has inspired @Ali Anani. My gut/heart reaction to your comment Joanne is that you are introducing the concept of thoughts as an entity in and of themselves that can move in and out of our thought consciousness to be experienced but not owned. This inspires me to revisit Jung's collective unconscious and see how your insight/perspective fits in.

    #57 Not less even by one inch what your comments inspire me with dear @Joanne Swecker.

    Joanne Swecker
    02/11/2016 #57 Joanne Swecker
    Thoughts on thought Dear Ali...Where are thoughts located? When we come from an expanded and open perspective we can direct our experience to what is actually here right now, instead of our attention being scattered in thinking. We can experience a clear observation, in this clarity we are able to allow thoughts to come and go, we reccognize that though is an appearance in and of itself. Thought thinks about appearance, about this and that. But in this openess we come to allow this appearance, coming and going. What is aware of thought is never absent and thought has no intelligence of it's own. I am continually and eagerly challenged to observe my thoughts by your thinking.

The man still continued practicing until his dying day . Actually his house in London is now a little museum . If you guys ever come to the UK 🇬🇧 give me a shout .

    The rational mystic often looks to debunk what is being presented in order to find the truth of the matter one who does not do this even as a mystic does not act with responsibility to oneself which is deny ones ability to question all even that which is revived through mysticism.

    Or to say any mystic who doesn't question their own shit is a charlatan.

    While scientific method gets applied to science alone it is done so in error. Most human being engage in it without thinking about it. It is when we take what is spoon fed to us without questioning it that we make a slave of ourselves to whoever has the best bullshit.

    Even Buddha said question everything even that which I tell you.

    A true mystic applies more scientific thinking than you have suggested and in order to keep from making the same mistake you might want to talk to a few true mystics before judging and condemning them as a whole. .

    @Phil Friedman you are absolutely right . There was some research carried out some time ago into the efficacy of talking therapies and the outcome said just that . The approach used made no difference, the relationship with the therapist is what mattered most . (BTW are you ever wrong ?) #135
    Phil Friedman
    07/11/2016 #135 Phil Friedman
    #134 Mark, I do not question that there are successful therapies nominally based on Freudian "theory". And although my guess is that I am far less expert than you in this matter, my personal opinion is that the successes are likely tied to the individual practitioners. For in psychotherapy, as in education, my belief is that the nature and character of the therapist or teacher is much more important that the "theory" nominally followed. All of which is, of course, totally independent of the question whether Freudian theory --- or for that matter, Friedian observation --- is scientific. Thank you for reading and commenting with insight here.

    Challenging Limiting Beliefs
    Challenging Limiting BeliefsMuch is being said about seeking and embracing authenticity. Implicit in this authenticity is a mind state free of  limiting subjective beliefs and the identification and adoption of a universal objectivity, a connection to a greater truth....

    #21 @Donald Grandy Used at the moment in rehab of stroke and head injured individuals. A similar application is being used in the neuro-coaching environment to move individuals from limiting beliefs into more resourceful mind states.

    #11 It's the other way around, @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD. As trauma heals, it allows for curiosity which requires a certain level of feeling safe and taking risk. A brain in survival mode won't do that. You didn't ask me but...

    Heller in his book "Healing Developmental Trauma," makes the comment that memory is the actual firing of two neurons. Essentially since memory seems scattered in the brain, and to re-capture it requires pulling from let's say the motor cortex, the olfactory and gustatory regions, and they all finally converge, the firing off that input in the last neuron is the memory. That's quite the thought, and some would say that the "mind" is the working of the brain. That "firing" is how I translate the "working."

    In Buddhism there is little distinction between heart and mind, heart meaning emotion. I haven't yet tried to parse out what that means in terms of William James' assertion that we feel because we move (I fear because I run from danger) not the other way around. There seems to be some credence in that from a vagal nerve aspect, I just haven't put the time into it yet. Buddhism doesn't quite emphasize embodiment like I've experienced, so there seems to be some relationship, as even to Buddhists there is Buddha nature, which exists after the corporeal passes on. I think they refer to it as consciousness. That part of me that can objectively look at my thinking process and thoughts, and indeed, be separate from them.

    What I call a material atheist, meaning one who denies there is any god(s), would deny anything called "spirit," "soul," or "mind," would say it's all electro-chemical. Partly due to biology, and partly due to the inability to prove the existence of non-material other and then claiming "it's a mystery."

    #11 @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD What are the differences between the 'mind,' the 'spirit,' and the 'soul?'

    Thin mind is the flesh, the soul powers the flesh and the spirit connects the soul to God or The Universal Consciousness or whatever help you sleep better at night.

    It actually is that simple.

    #8 #9 #10 Well, there's tons of energy, neuroplasticity, and great conversation going here, and I'll add, @Max Carter another esoteric question...because I would love to hear your view: What are the differences between the 'mind,' the 'spirit,' and the 'soul?' I've never really met anyone who could quite explain, but ha! perhaps that is the mystery that we are not to attain in this life. But I'm still curious! So curious to know more about how 'being curious' overrides the brain pathways to diminish PTSD, @Leckey Harrison, too. On another tangent, in 1979 & again in 2002, I raised my children without one jar of baby food. It made them 'different,' nutritionally, than all of their peers. Neither liked 'candy, soda' and such. And they both are great cooks because the 'taste' of homemade is so much more rich. So my point is that if we integrate the memory of smells of say, cinnamon rolls baking in the oven (a very potent smell from 1/2 block away)....then the reminiscences "come back" with this same scent. Much as the reminiscence of for example, music of the 70's bringing us 'back' to associate The Beatles:Mr Ed, @Gerald Hecht. Finally, patients with dementias like Alzheimer's must secrete 'happy high' endogenous endorphins when looking at baby pics, hearing certain songs, etc... it has been proven that reminiscence can halt the progression of Alzheimer's too....so Leckey, what role could reminiscence play as visual therapy (or literally re-visiting the same preschool park) for bringing a teen back to remember good times and be curious while walking in the same park? Oh so much lovely food for thought ~ you are all wonderful, such wonderful minds! And look where we got!

    great article, Ian. What I use as reference to early childhood is the ACE test, and of course www.acestoohigh.com and www.acesconnection.com are all about the all too pervasive child abuse and neglect. As I mentioned in my comment to @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD, it is my opinion that indeed, neuroplasticity is impacted by childhood traumatic stress. Peter Levine said in his little book, "Healing Trauma,: and David Berceli has said the same thing, trauma and curiosity cannot exist together. Curiosity returns when trauma begins to heal sufficiently. David told me that if I wanted to change the world, heal trauma. I've seen the fruit of it in my life, and in the lives of those I've worked with. My work is teaching others how to lift the physiological limit on positive change. Close

    #3 I want to take a crack at that re-wiring thought. Robert Scaer postulated that memories of trauma are "encapsulated." I take that to mean that with the emotional and physiological charge that the even held and was never released. That sets the stage for the brain, and as this article states, limits the ability of the brain's neuroplasticity. I think @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD, in our discussion I brought this up, that trauma release (through TRE) acts as a polishing stone in regards to our encapsulated, frozen memories. It slowly tumbles them and takes the rough and ugly stone which we hold at arm's length, if not further, and slowly brings it closer. It has been my experience, and here I speculate, that when the body has finally discharged the energy around that memory, that the memory moves from implicit memory to explicit memory where it belongs. Now, it may be polished, but that doesn't imply it's beautiful. Not all of life is. What makes it beautiful is that we can acknowledge it happened, and that we released it and have moved beyond just being a survivor. For that teen then, if there were explicit memories of joy, then as the brain re-orders itself while healing from a traumatic/stress/survival state, then the portions of the brain that contain those memories come back online. The traumatized brain does not utilize the cortices very fully, the body is "lost" proprioceptively, and the hippocampi can lose mass and function due to elevated levels of cortisol.

    I will caveat here and say I haven't read Levine's book on memory so I could be completely wrong. Based on what I've read of Levine's other works, Scaer's works, and my experience in healing is how I derive this view.

I am very aware (yet still superficially touching) your works masterminding an implicit plethora of insight on integrating wellness physiology, performance and leadership through mind state optimization. Ahh..neuroplasticity. Just discussed that with @Leckey Harrison. Most especially in your pioneer work on Applied Psychoneuro-Endocrinology (PNE), I have a special interest in the central endocrine system as affected by the pituitary gland, the autonomic nervous system (ANS), traumatic brain injury with diabetes insipidus (DI), and pure Perseverance. I also noted in 1979 that the skin:skin contact with my newborn baby sent shockwaves of 'high' as apparently (we know now) endogenous endorphines were released. I'm wondering about a child's psyche regarding development into an adult, with the damaging effects of parental alienation from divorce. How is it best to re-wire through neuroplasticity so that a teen will 'remember' her mother? I say this as I am involved with Robin Karr (I need to bring her into beBee) in The Motherless Child Project. We shall be learning from you in lots of dimensions, and if you get too tired or bored, please feel free to say! We need your keen mind to keep paving the way. Thank you for being here.

    My first job was a barman and I have attended alcoholics anonymous and I am a teatotaller. As a barman I was awful at serving drinks and my manager had to explain to me what an alcoholic was, which was his way of saying that I need to use my judgement when I was serving - whereas the person he was referring to was steadily getting more legless every time I sold him a round. I was 18 years old at the time and I even got my shots wrong. At the end of the first night on bar duty, the manager declared that they were $500 short on the shots - it was then he discovered that I thought the shots were broken, so I hit the shots five or six times. Yes the people in the bar had a totally curious look and yes more of them came for shots - but I thought that this was because I was becoming popular.

    I attended one of my brothers friends medallion ceremony at an AA meeting and what I did not know is that as the meeting commences, everyone declares themselves to be an alcoholic. I had my brother with me and I whispered to him, "I am going to say my name is Manjit and I am a Teatotaller" and he made it clear that I just tag along and support his friend. When it came to my turn, I did say "My name is Manjit and I am an Alcholic". I then turned around to my bro and told him I cool with saying that on the basis that our mother gave us gripe water when we were babies, back then the original formulation contained alcohol. Bro taught me humility that day when he retorted "you really feel superior to them don't you, such a shame".

    It is odd what alcohol does to the personality of a human being, both my dad and my brother turn into happy drunks, I have to remove my dads wallet when he gets drunk because otherwise he would give the farm away. Yes, there is the downside - and hearing the stories at AA made me even more humbler that night - but there is true Viking stories - the legends we do laugh with.

    The best thing about alcohol is that it's legal. And cheap -- cheap in the US. In a town like Vegas you can drink at any time of the night or morning and nobody cares, especially if you tip up front. Booze was never my drug of choice I used it in conjunction with narcotics. It's useful that way. I have -- I'm coming up on 14 years now. So? Is that the cure for cancer? Is that a big accomplishment? But it's better for me all around. I didn't like where I was heading. There's a limit.

    The Mushy Brain MysteryRed velvet brain cake - delicious!I was recently scheduled to perform surgery on a patient with a brain tumor. The day before the surgery, the patient phoned me to request that should the surgery necessitate the removal of any normal brain tissue...

    #10 @Ian WeinbergThe Eunuchs who could never write at my level even if I tututored them myself --are in the process of paying for their crimininal stupidity by having to stare at naked women and be denied martyrdom while I drink heavily in front of them...this; unfolding even as I write this! Cheers 🍻 Mate! (Or checkmate...whatever); label on dawg!

    #6 @Ian Weinberg we got em where we need 'em now... let's put up the tents, ticket booths and demonstrate how CAN tech them how to drink heavily and write (not at the same time of course); then they'd have to clean up the floors at the consulate and some lawyer might make us pay 'em overtime for their disabilities (they probably caught us laughing at them) and may try to use that against us

    #5 Yang is spent ...and now droops in the face of rising Yin! Gaia returns to reclaim her place - honeysweet times ahead. Tweaks my nucleus accumbens (and a few other things)!

    @Ian Weinberg do you think this gets through to to those eunuchs who are so terrified of 👙 clad babes and bourbon? 10,000 of them as an institution are my humor fuel! That's all they are --impotent honeydrippers against little ole me and my loyal, educated beautiful, entrepreneurial women; I would stand between them and their would be stoners and genital mutilstors in a heartbeat; even when they try to silence m voice 🖖 Approved!

    Bravo @Ian Weinberg. Our parts and memories are not a list of definitive facts and occurrences but rather a correlation of our consciousness. Making each of us unique. I read at a very elementary level about the brain and see that science wants to describe the parts and not necessarily the whole. I don't believe we can get to the whole by understanding just the parts.

    Walking into an electronics store and seeing all of the different components small and large i see the parts. But these parts in the hands of an electrical engineer can become and infinite number of things that are beyond my conceptual understanding.

    While waiting for a close relative to emerge from a comatose state that lasted for 41 days after an accident, many a doctor told us that time and again that the human Brain was still a mystery and only 10% of it made sense to modern science! And that the average human uses only 10% of his/her brain for all functions. So it was wait and watch till he finally came through. But it wasn't the same person that went in. The multiple clots did something no one could understand or explain. Just like a hard drive with bad sectors/corrupt areas that will not function the same as before! The OS now has less functionality or limited functionality! The Brain is the closest to the barrier that separates matter from consciousness.Through the sensory complex of the Mind perhaps?

    Aha...this soft organ, the subtle element of human being when treads, in a balance and insightful manner, it turns a person more knowledgeable and reasonable. And, how when it loses stability and gets deviant, then human existence becomes a messy affair. Shouldn't we be grateful to the Almighty Lord how marvelously He created this little organ that performs things in a twinkling?
