i was just curious about this, well here goes. could the problem that doctors face when working with the body be a direct result of forgetting to include the mind within the process. i mean, could the reason why we havent had breakthrough advances in human regeneration and what not, be a direct result of the fact that when we work on the body, there is nothing done to program the mind. for ex. when someone is under getting surgery done. well the focus would be solely on the body of course, because that is where we believe the problem only lies, but really shouldnt we be including the mind through playing some type of self hypnosis or healing guidance tapes for the patient. maybe strap on a headset and play some little message while the patient is under and let it keep playing tell he/she wakes up. to me, this includes the mind and the body, because you have the doctor doing what he can to the body and the mind doing its work while the body is at rest. we cant deny the interactions of a healthy "mind" and a healthy "body". we also cant deny the subjective powers of the mind on the body. so my question is, do you think that the body has no use for the mind when it comes to everything from research into human regeneration, to general surgery. will the body work the way you want without programming the mind. do you think that is what is missing when scientist are struggling for a breathrough. this idea came to me when i was watching "the hulk" and the frog exploded when they tried to gamma its ass and regenerate the cut tissue. i was thinking, would that have been a problem if the mind and the body where both trying to work and not just working with one and forgetting the other.
