More deep thoughts...

Does anyone have any recommended reading on the subconscious?

I'm trying to do a little research into things like biofeedback and the like. My dad was part of a test that determined that, with concetration, you can control some of your involuntary functions. I forget what most of the tests were, but one was on trying to affect your body temperature. With concentration, dad was able to raise and lower his body temperature by about 3 degrees both ways. The mind can be a powerful tool if one knows how to harness the potential.

Re: More deep thoughts...

I can control my heart rate...something I learned in the hospital. Used to freak the nurses out when they would try and take my pulse b/c i would variate it. It just takes alot of concentration and clearing your mind of everything else.

Re: More deep thoughts...

Well, I'm sure you've all heard of Sigmund Freud. He's probably more famous than anyone else in the field.

Then there's Carl Jung, who I mentioned in another thread. Much of his work deals with an idea called the "collective unconscious" which refers to traits in the subconscious that are common in all humans. He also talks about the Self, the Shadow, the Anima and the Animus, which are quite interesting.

Another interesting guy is Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche. He dealt more with philosophy in general than the subconscious, but some of the things he worked on were a big influence on Freud.

Finally, if you want something that's pretty far "out there", look up Drunvalo Melchizedek. Some of the more interesting (and more difficult to swallow) ideas of his deal with the evolution of species through the completion of "grids" which connect the consciousness of entire species. He says that humans will eventually evolve and pick up an extra pair of chromosomes. Most interesting is his theory that the consciousness of all humans are connected together and will some day be able to work as one entity. 2:

The sacred geometry stuff he talks about is really cool though. And even though his ideas seem far-fetched, he at least has a good message about peace and unity.

Re: More deep thoughts...

this is off topic but i think its worthy of being said in here.

did you know if a group of girls (like a dorm floor) live together their menstrual cycles become synchronized? how weird is that?

i found that out last year.. pretty fascinating if you ask me.

Re: More deep thoughts...

I've heard many girls claim that all their best friends seem to have their cycles synchronized. I've never seen any sort of scientific evidence, but just about every girl I know says this.

I have heard that also, and it's usually the more dominant in the group or "alpha female" 2: that all the other's cycles trend toward.

This is true. There are lots of studies that have been replicated and prove this.
