Mirror neurons

Oh! My dictionary has become food for ants.  Did they enter the bookbinding to learn some new words and mock at me?

I literally had to struggle to kick them out of my book. So many were killed during the process though not cautiously. I was a little bit worried on seeing them losing their lives. But did I have any other options to save my dictionary?

Seems my mirror neurons (The neurons which fires your empathy and allows you to grasp the emotions of others) are activated a little bit. But still am I really guilty for what I did? I can’t kill an animal or a bird. (Not because of my goodness but to save myself from the guilty feeling) If my mirror neurons are working then, why not fully in the case of these poor ants? If I could hear them crying, maybe I wouldn’t have.. Is it like that..? I donno actually.

An afterthought: Actually why do we need to have this weird phenomenon of empathy causing all these confusions? Actually is it really empathy or selfishness as I posted in Painful..

Time passes, but not in your mind

I believe that the greatest wonder in the world is mind. And it is the super-fast traveller in the universe. It can travel back and forth in time. Mind tries to pull or push you away from present. It makes you wander in the past and future.

It is not time bounded. There is no start or end for the mind journey. No one can tie it down. Therefore there is no time in mind.

Oh.. mind is winning over time.. It is really great while thinking more on it.

We always tell like ‘time will go on’. But often we forget about the exception, i.e. our own mind. Our thoughts wander here and there like a free horse, sometimes slowly, sometime swiftly.

When we think about the whole universe, it is rolling over time from past to future.. (or is it from future to past..?. I donno.)

There is no return path for the life in universe.  It cannot go back to past (or can it go back?, I donno). Time passes whether we measure it or not..

But time does not exist in mind. It is freed from time. Have you wondered about this mystery of mind..?

Consciousness, an illusion

Consciousness; is it an illusion?

After all, we are physical beings, driven by a physical brain.

So how comes a software embedded in the brain connecting us with the outside world?

Who feeds the program into the hardware?

How can a physical brain help us to experience the world?

World of zero limits

Can yoga and meditation unleash your super powers? Or is there something else to be practiced?

How could this Iceman, Wim Hof  stay submerged in ice for almost two hours without any change in his body temperature?

How could this magnet man, Liew Thow Lin stick metal objects to his body..?

How could Shakuntala Devi become a human computer?

There are many super heroes in this world of zero limits, raising the eyebrows of many scientists. Can science answer all these? May be psychic science can answer. I donno if there is such a branch of science actually. 😉

Between, if you can have one super power based on psychic and paranormal phenomenon, what it could be?

  • Flying
  • Invisibility
  • Time travel
  • Mind control
  • Or something else.. what it is..?

I had a feeling about it – A gut instinct

Many a times, we always have a “This is it” feeling, a gut instinct. And often it works out. We are unaware of the reasons behind our gut instincts. They are felt at once.

Instincts are not something in our brain; they are some feelings. In fact, instincts play tricks in our intelligent brain making us cautious on some unfamiliar things, making us conscious on the environment.

They can’t be called as some random thoughts; instead they are some scientific feelers.  It’s actually, every cell in our body thinking alike and working together.

“List every time your gut instinct helped you.” I read somewhere like this. Sounds good, no?

So how do you exercise your intuitive senses to make it sharper?

How do you decide which gut instincts to believe, supporting your feelings with facts?

Do plants feel pain?

There is a bowl of salad with green, red, yellow and orange vegetables grabbing my attention. Being attracted by the colours, I took an orange piece with my fork. At once, the pale green piece, near to the orange one, jumped back and buried itself. Then to my surprise, I found many more pieces trying to escape from my fork.

What happened to my salad..? Are these vegetables playing hide and seek?

Just like every other living being, do plants feel pain?

But science tells me ‘Without a nervous system, you can’t feel pain and hence the plant won’t feel it’.

After all, is pain an essential stuff for life?

The poor plants even don’t have an option to move to escape from pain. So better to believe that the creator is not as cruel as to make the plants feel that torture of pain.
