Auditory hallucination is common according to Daniel B. Smith. In “Can You Live With the Voices in Your Head?”, Peter D.

Though many of us in the mainstream associate hearing voices with pathology, 39 percent of healthy volunteers said they had heard their own thoughts aloud. Another 13 percent of those who…Continue

“Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous.”-Leonardo da Vinci.
Nature is no longer of our concern, as humans – at least for a majority of humans that take part in todays environmental meltdown, which has burned (like the fuel in a combustion engine) for the past 100+ years. The modern citizen in…Continue
My main work in the psychology field has been working with blocked artists of all kinds. It's difficult work, not least because the block is so painful.
By the time most get to me, they have developed an elaborate system to avoid the pain -- like drinking, having lots of sex and innumerable other compulsive activities.
A recent article in the New Yorker describes…Continue

"I saw an angel in the stone and I carved until I set him free."
No one since Michelangelo has more aptly or succinctly told the story of creative process. In one sentence, the sculptor describes its stages: encounter…

I just watched a 3-minute video that made me very uncomfortable. It discusses how neuroscience doctors are working to develop drug treatments that could erase traumatic memories form people's minds. In a country where 1 in 5 veterens come home suffering PTSD or depression--or perhaps in the wake of a massive natural disaster like the Japan quake and tsunami (not to mention Chile, Haiti, Hurricane Katrina and so many others)--revolutionary drug treatment like this could ease pain and…

But it’s good to see that The Times has noticed.…Continue
