    Believing what you are told

    I heard during a television interview from a stated computer robot programmer, after seeing two human looking robots (head, arms, legs and torso) playing soccer, with a computer programmer stating “the problem with computers is that computers are very dumb. Computers lack an ability to...

    What is the "anatomy" of "believing"?

    When I learned of the phenomenon of 'placebo effect', I was fascinated by how believing works; how do we believe? If anyone knows, I would very much appreciate if you would share your knowledge. I asked that question and the answers are about the 'what/content' of what is believed, that's...

    What I Learned About 'Believing'

    Just because something doesn't really exit doesn't mean that 'believing' it does, make the belief useless. Case in point: Believing Evolution is analogous to electricity, only intelligent and that we are the avant garde; causes /results in personal empowerment, which is a very helpful motivator...

    What Do-U- Believe About 'Believing'? (Never thought about it?)

    Beliefs manifest as experience; across the board. Even if your not aware of the belief; and even if the experience is so mi-nute you need a polygraph to detect it. We subliminally believe some of our thought-images are real and that belief manifests as the experience of emotional suffering...

    Can We Avoid/Override Believing Some Thought-Images Are Real ?

    Epictetus said; "It's not the facts that disturb us but our thoughts about them." (ABC of Emotions). So the question; "How to avoid/override believing some images are real?" or more specifically; "How to recognize thought-images believed real?" Not possible? Then...

    Placebo Effect Demonstrates Therapeutic Use of 'Believing'

    What was said about a mustard seed? 'Believing' is a invisible process, recognized by its effects; like gravity and magnetic fields. 'Believing' requires a image to access the process; just as we can't see gravity per se unless something is falling. We see 'effects'. A false/fake pill or false...

    'Conditioned thoughts' are already believed-. Believing conditions thoughts

    Does "is of identity" cause premature believing, at subliminal level? 'Is of identity' virtually insures premature believing at subliminal level. When thoughts arrive in awareness already believed we are compelled to react, that is our 'involuntary' reacts to them. Any one interested...

    Beliefs Are Maintained By Believing (lol)

    Giving the appearance of permanent 'hard-wired' structures/patterns. We stop believing false beliefs when we see they are incongruous with facts. What do we learn from the placebo effect ? If you believe something works, it works. We're all prone to be fooled; even Lincoln said; "You can...

    Without "believing", would words be 'more' than words?

    Bullying is in the news, again. What gives words (thoughts) power? "Believing they are real." ( without physical harm) what gives 'power' to the bullies words? If it was not for the harmful effects of verbal bulling, we must admit the 'power' of words, or rather the power of BELIEVING...

    Some thoughts are believed. Is "believing" done with thought?

    " Think of a image that disturbs you." You just 'activated' your IMAGE REACTOR. ( It works as automatically as a mirror.) I'm not interested in WHAT/WHICH image you just used; I'm just demonstrating 'your' IMAGE REACTOR. (in action; a 'field test', if you will). You CAN'T SEE IT...

    Is "Believing" Optional ?

    If believing is optional, you "don't have to" believe some of your images are real. Our brain "submits" images, but we don't have,to believe they are real, UNLESS you made a habit of'believing'. Then your a candiate/volunteer for emotional suffering, dysfunctional behavior...
