I'm curious what you think of meditation or your own experiences. There is this thing called the relaxation response, when a person meditates regularly it's supposed to equip them with a kind of tool to prevent the flight or fight response, assuming in modern day society this response is typically not practical. Also, the adrenaline response is a stress response experienced many times throughout the day in small doses, stress is linked to heart disease and some other things but the point is it is detrimental and could partly cause many ailments- that is still up for debate. In my own experience 30 minutes of meditation a day or every other day aids clarity of thought and action, it puts one more in control, and makes one more aware. I've had a few lucid dream states that resulted in euphoria the likes of eating a giant chocolate bar, only instantly. Another wierd thing I picked up from meditation is a trick or aid to remembering to do certain things at a certain time of day, simply by visualizing doing those things at that time, oddly it works 90% of the time as opposed to 10% of the time just saying to myself, "don't forget to send off the bills". How powerful is visualization and what is the relationship to meditaion?
