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.

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.  …….

Sex and moral

Relating to my post on Petraeus and the issue of sex and politics in the US, I want to put it in another way: to have this love affair, Petraeus as well as others who did the same (men or women), proof the fact that moral categories never can win against love and sex in this way.

The German philosopher Immanuel Kant was convinced that being rational, man can suppress love and sex by his rational conviction. Here ………………

Faces Too Close Perceived As Less Attractive, Trustworthy, And Competent

Attraction and competence change from distance to distance, so to say. They are not the same even if it is the same person. Results of a survey show that the perception of attraction and competence change the closer you get to someone. In addition to these results one could say attraction and competence are not fixed characters or features. These results also show how important the individual perception, one`s own awareness is. It also points out that these characters are directly influenced by nonverbal communication…………….if you are interested have a look into the following link.

The skin is the message 6 – devaluation and shame

This morning I came across a little notice in my newspaper on a research about young people and internet mobbing. The main result of this research is the following: Embarrassing fotos are felt more severe than mockery and ridicule by words. More than half of the surveyed young people who have experience in cyber-mobbing suffer from unauthorized fotos and video clips in the internet, when these fotos or videos are used in a mockery manner. This is also experienced as a deep humiliation and a loss of trust.

In contrast to this, mockery by words, insults and verbal threats are only experienced by 25 % of the young people as deeply embarrassing. One conclusion out of this survey can be the following: people, especially young people, feel more unsecure and helpless thus much more struck on a nonverbal level than on a verbal level. They feel obviously more safe and more resistant on the verbal level than on the body level.

On the other hand they know very well the importance of the nonverbal level. And they operate there in an effectual and convincing way. Convincing here means, in a cruel way. Well, realising this, can bring up the idea to be more careful on the nonverbal level, to be more sensitive by using the body language as an important and direct approach to the other.

I wonder what kind of results there would be in other countries, mainly in China, Japan or so.
