Don't Think Of A Pink Elephant

By Lori, published on Nov 1, 2008

One of the tenets of Neurolinguistics is that the brain does not automatically process negatives. This is to say that any statements that include the word don’t or prefixes such as un or non are initially (subconsciously) processed in the positive. This is because in order to affix meaning, the brain must associate something with the words spoken.

Here’s an example. When a parent says to a child, “Don’t spill your milk!” the child’s brain must subconsciously process, in effect, the command SPILL YOUR MILK. The negative don’t is affixed afterward in the conscious mind.

This is... (more)

Book Review: Deep Structure By Lori Stephens

By Lori, published on Oct 19, 2008

SEATTLE, Washington—Fans of The Da Vinci Code’s symbology sleuthing and the quantum questions of the popular film “What the #$*! Do We Know” will enjoy this speculative science mystery that will send them down the rabbit hole of perception and scramble their paradigm of reality.

Where are the symbols coming from and what do they mean? Why have they appeared in an Egyptian tomb, a Peruvian palace, and a shape created by a fakir’s squirming snakes? Could they be related to the astounding disaster at Stonehenge?

Book Review: Alpha, Omega By Lori Stephens

By Lori, published on Oct 18, 2008

SEATTLE, Washington—Fresh from the keyboard of science-thriller writer Lori Stephens, Alpha, Omega is—like Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code—fiction with a forceful message. The story starts with a corpse. A defector from a cult called Omega has bled to death, and the only clue is the book he’s clutching: the Librah Vae-ta, the holy scripture that the Omega founders engineered over a century ago. Dr. Gatsby Donovan resolves to help solve the bizarre murder. As she spirals deeper into the danger zone of spies and assassins, she discovers that the Omega script is based... (more)

Right Brain, Left Brain, No Brain

By Lori, published on Oct 15, 2008

Most of us know about the hemispheres of the brain—that is, that the brain is split into two segments, like a walnut, the left and the right—and research has shown that each hemisphere has specialized to perform certain types of skills. The left hemisphere handles language, math, and logical tasks. The right is specialized for spatial abilities, creativity, and imagery. The imagination. Dividing the two sides, running through the middle like a neural traffic cop, is the corpus callosum: a highway of white matter that transmits signals from one side to the other.

The Boycott On "debating" Religion

By Lori, published on Oct 14, 2008

There’s a quote that I love about argument: “Discussion is an exchange of knowledge, argument an exchange of emotion” (Robert Quillen).Think of a time when you and a friend, or your spouse, were in a heated argument andyou realized that you weren’t having an exchange of knowledge but rather an exchange of emotion.You were venting, not persuading. As the emperor in the film Amadeus said, “You are passionate, Mozart, but you do not persuade.”Logic versus emotion – the differences, and the differences in methods of expression, can become blatantly clear... (more)
