So the mind and body problem is seen as more of a philosophy problem.
What is the relationship between the human mind and brain? Does the brain give rise to consciousness? Are we just a bunch of chemical reactions in our neurons? Or is there something more? Is our mind a separate entity then?
So here’s my take on it.
There’s been profound evidence that our brain does have an effect on our mind.
For example, take the case of Phineas Gage, where damage to his brain resulted in personality changes. Any degenerative brain disease (ex: Alzheimer’s) also effects memory, thinking and behavior.
But there’s also been evidence that our mind can affect our body. Think about the classical placebo effect, or the amazing effects of meditation.
People who think that they are pregnant, will actually exhibit signs of pregnancy, even though they aren’t really. A phenomenon known as pseudocyesis
So if our brains can affect our minds. And our minds can affect our bodies. Maybe BOTH are powerful entities, and BOTH work together to make you who you are.
I’m no PhD research scientist, but I’ve done a lot of reading and I propose that the mind and body kind of work like a car and a driver.
The mind uses the body like a driver uses a car, to get to places and get things accomplished.
Similarly the body uses the instructions of the mind to get things done, explaining why if you think about something and believe it hard enough, it becomes your reality.
They both need each other.
BUT if the car were to crash, then the driver could still survive and move on
But since the car is broken, it can’t really carry on anymore, similar to how after brain damage someone experiences memory loss, personality changes and makes life harder to live.
Also this is just my own IDEA, I thought of sophomore year in high school. Nothing serious. Could have holes in it, but it’s an idea none the less.
once when i was little, i claimed it was a teacher’s work day so i wouldn’t have to go to school and mom’s not an idiot so of course it didn’t work, but when we got to the school, we found it was a teacher’s work day and that made me think i had super powers so i started trying to kill classmates with my mind to confirm the theory
You thought you had super powers so you immediately attempted to murder everyone
go big or go home
on a scale from Matilda to Carrie how well do you handle having telekinesis and terrible parents
Imagine if in “Frozen” when Anna’s heart finally freezes, Elsa, horror struck and filled with grief began to hold her and sing a reprise version of “Do You Want to build a Snowman.”
Cause I feel like it’d go like this:
….Yes I wanna build a snowman….
…And ride our bikes around the halls…
…It’s because I cared for you….
…I hid from you…
…And now you took the fall…..
…I wanted to protect you….
…Now look at you…
…Frozen by my own hands….
*Pauses looking at her hands*
…Yes I wanna build a snowman…
…And play outside in all the snow…
…I wanted just to hold you close….
…Open up my door…
…Because I loved you most…
…I was always lonely….
…Cause now I can finally see…
…I want to build a snowman …
…One more time Anna please……….
Oh…. I didn’t need my heart anyways, sure, go ahead, just rip it right out of my chest…
These feels. I can’t conceal them. Like for real…
I really wanna sing this… would anyone want a video of that? It might suck…
aaaaaand my soul is gone. thank.
What if everyone’s parents start getting tumblr like they did with Facebook
