The experiment found, unexpectedly, that a very high proportion of subjects would fully obey the instructions, albeit reluctantly. Milgram first described his research in a 1963 article in the Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology and later discussed his findings in greater depth in his 1974 book, Obedience to Authority: An Experimental View.

Let’s back up 50,000 years or so. Imagine you’re a Neanderthal taking a leisurely stroll through the fields. Suddenly, in the nearby bushes, you hear a tiger. In a nanosecond, your entire body starts…

Materialism becomes incoherent when it requires us to believe that we only imagine we are conscious — that’s a basic error in logic.

“Like an astronomer associating with astrology,” Solms writes. Neuropsychoanalysis seems to attract the punkish interdisciplinarians, those thinkers who won’t be contained by the ridigities of their respective fields. But the thing about these rebel types is that, so much of the time, they’re the ones most capable of making the wildest leaps.

Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when a pair or group of particles is generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in a way such that the quantum state of each particle of the pair or group cannot be described independently of the state of the others, including when the particles are separated by a large distance.
Interestingly, however, the people with younger subjective ages also became more conscientious and less neurotic – positive changes that come with normal ageing. So they still seem to gain the wisdom that comes with greater life experience. But it doesn’t come at the cost of the energy and exuberance of youth. It’s not as if having a lower subjective age leaves us frozen in a state of permanent immaturity.
Feeling younger than your years also seems to come with a lower risk of depression and greater mental wellbeing as we age. It also means better physical health.
You mop the floor after tidying up and clearing out the house. That way, you don’t get caught up in moving and navigating or trying to avoid objects that are in the way, but you can focus on seeing the ground underneath, and thus find the space to realise why things get so messy in the first place.
In the same way, you unload your mind of anything you need to do or remember, any general worries or thoughts, any shopping lists or birthday plans or business ideas, before you meditate. That way, you’re not spending the time trying to work that discussion out, holding onto that story to tell your sister, or trying to avoid your busy mind, but are instead getting on with actually meditating.
