Today’s Word: -Cebos; variations: Pla- and No-

no and pla  ebos

The placebo effect has always fascinated me, and the nocebo effect is just as interesting.

One of the most interesting books I read in the last couple of years…. normally I read a wide number and range of books, usually 3 or 4 at a time in different places. But reading is something I still have troubles with because of my inability to focus my concentration.

13 things

When I read about the placebo effect, I wondered about the opposite as well.

and applying that to behavioral psychology and thinking about childhood development and school and workplace experiences…

the same as if you are constantly told

you are bad or unworthy

eventually you believe it

if someone with enough credibility and authority in a situation says something

our natural tenancy is to follow the leader

and we also tend to think that what the majority thinks is also true

but numbers of believers does not a truth make

reality and actual truth are not subjective or dependent on perspective

much of reality – and history – is documented and remains measurable and observable

so any variations in reality – such as whether something is medicine or a sugar tablet

in any event,

it is as much about what crutch one picks as much as giving yourself permission to use a crutch.

the problem is when people made self destructive choices. that’s what leads to more self destruction.

you are your own highest power

because if all you do is sit and breath through the thoughts without making a sound

eventually you hear how it sounds in your head

without the need to verify or run it through the quality control of others.

I am just gonna post that and let it breath a while and

I lost my train of thought, but I finally have the confidence that what I wrote is sensible and coherent

I am just not sure what if anything it means, given the changes that occurred through the writing process.

the joy of being able to communicate interferes with the ability sometimes.

you know it is a little unsettling when everything in my feed is exactly what I want to say rather than when it's all just stuff that I like to say generally

you know
it is a little unsettling when everything in my feed is exactly what I want to say
rather than when it’s all just stuff that I like to say generally
