comment Does law of attraction have psychological basis?
@nick-stauner: I completely get the skepticism...but it is hard to ignore certain life experiences that defy common scientific findings. I am not saying there is a formula for this either but rather elements that perhaps science has yet to explore or is outside of our awareness. Did you get a chance to watch the video? Re: "it means whatever vibrations we create are an infinitesimal fraction of overall activity. " yes, I do agree but also relative to the size of the world your awareness is part of.

comment Does law of attraction have psychological basis?
@nick-stauner: the idea is that everything in reality is energetic vibration, a thought a physical object an intent...the "vibrations" that we have free will in creating do effect what we experience to some degree, this I know for sure.

comment Does law of attraction have psychological basis?
@ArtemKaznatcheev: Science and religion are both pointing towards the mind/spirit as separate from the brain/body. There are clearly gaps in science as well as religion - but it is not black and white or mutually exclusive. and many people have experienced these gaps. While I do not agree with the gimmic part of concept (i.e. make more money instantly by thinking about it) there is a fundamental truth to the root. I am very interested to have u watch, please, even if you say no to every part of it, open minded, (then tear it apart with science) - youtube.com/watch?v=ltGstp5GaFc

comment Why is an image of a face without features disturbing?
I didn't think twice about the face. What is disturbing is that I am not as smart as these CEOs - 15M for nothing just about breaks the laws of nature and science.

@nick-stauner: I have had some unexplainable experiences with the Secret concept, so be careful to not count it out. There is definitely a correlation to quantum physics and our thoughts.

"In some cases of BPD the loved one may swing between I love you and I absolutely hate you."....however, that also sounds like every teen - young 20s relationship.

comment How far can we train mental calculation?
funny you mentioned "It is common to be psychotic ....and be a religious important person". My pastor was telling us about visions he had during a dark time in his life and I was thinking he was losing his mind. So what is that (visions of the Holy Spirit filling the church) considered?

comment How does cognitive science explain the origins of intuition and intelligence, that accurately describes the laws of nature?
@caseyr547: "Our work shows that the price of higher intelligence and more complex behaviours is more mental illness." this quote from the article is interesting. from my personal experience and observations I have to say this seems true. Perhaps in modern humans this is where that intuition comes from: different mutations in the brain genes or the shaping of the brain....
