Where science and soul coexist

The Chopra Foundation is dedicated to conducting scientific research that examines the effects of mind-body practices on health and wellbeing. These practices include meditation, yoga, breathing techniques, diet, massage and use of adaptogenic herbal supplements, plant fiber and ingestible oils. While there are studies in the scientific literature on the beneficial effects of a variety of individual mind-body practices for wellbeing, few studies have taken a more systems biology approach that are simultaneously inclusive of numerous practices and examine genetic, biochemical, physiological and psychosocial measurements.

Healthy feedback loop linked to positive emotions

Researchers suggests that positive emotions, robust social connections, and physical health influence one another in a self-sustaining upward spiral dynamic and feedback loop that scientists are just beginning to understand.

A higher vagal tone index is linked to physical and psychological well-being. Conversely, a low vagal tone index is associated with inflammation, depression, negative moods, loneliness, heart attacks, and stroke.

Healthy vagal tone is part of a feedback loop linked to positive emotions…if you want to get to know more about it, have a look:

How to stay anonymous online

Anonymity networks protect people living under repressive regimes from surveillance of their Internet use. But the recent discovery of vulnerabilities in the most popular of these networks — Tor — has prompted computer scientists to try to come up with more secure anonymity schemes.

At the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium in July, researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne will present a new anonymity scheme that provides strong security guarantees but uses bandwidth much more efficiently than its predecessors. In experiments, the researchers’ system required only one-tenth as much time as similarly secure experimental systems to transfer a large file between anonymous users.

Freud as a comic is online

Once Freud referred to the issue of ending a psychotherapy by saying: a patient is cured when he can laugh about his neurosis.Freud as I was told never really wrote about the criteria of ending a psychotherapy in a professional way.

More than 60n years ago there were three comics published on Freud, though they call him simply “the psychiatrist”. When reading These Comics you can find out by yourself if you are already cured and laugh about your neurosis. Enjoy. 🙂

The comic featured three patients, Freddy Carter, Ellen Lyman and Mark Stone, who were undergoing psychoanalysis. The analyst was the central character. He was never named, simply listed as The Psychiatrist

Sublimation as forced by sexual instinct

 A lot of what we long for and desire will never be ours; we might go out of our minds with frustration, were it not for a very useful manoeuvre first identified by Sigmund Freud: sublimation.
It`s a “Process postulated by Freud to account for human activities which have no apparent connection with sexuality but which are assumed to be motivated by the force of the sexual instinct.  …….
