    Interesting topic that we discussed here last year, see link. Worth a listen.


    'Does the Brain Control the Mind or the Mind Control the Brain?' By Parag and Ayesha Khanna

    "But a new breed of medical scientists is challenging this linear approach to the relationship between the objective physical world and subjective mental life. Dan Siegel, a professor at UCLA medical school, argues that the mind can be shared with others, and that these inter-personal neural networks can in fact shape the brain. The brain and the mind obviously have an intimate relationship, but the mind is different: it is a collection of thoughts, patterns, perceptions, beliefs, memories and attitudes. As Siegel explains, “The mind can use the brain to perceive itself, and the mind can be used to change the brain.”" Does the Brain Control the Mind or the Mind Control the Brain? | Hybrid Reality | Big Think

    "Imagine how different dialogue might be with future generations raised on the idea that there are biological constraints on our ability to know what we know. To me, that is our only hope." Robert A. Burton
