commondense: When you feel bad, you will have the tendency to come up with a theory as to why you feel the way you do. Without knowing the actual cause, it makes sense to create a reason.

Have you ever cried in the face of temptation? If you have you will have no problem with the sentiment as it is expressed by the popular group Crowded House, in their hauntingly beautiful 1988 hit song, Into Temptation.

Some ideas on thought
Western science has had remarkable success in explaining the functioning of the material world, but when it comes to the inner world of the mind, it has very little to say. Not for lack of want I hasten to add, but waiting for technology to catch up. In his article Peter Russel takes a look at some of the mainstream theories that informs our reality on the subject of our mind and consciousness,...

I am generally not a big fan of any attempt that denegrates the wonder of diversity by trying to fit everything into neat categories or types, but I was reminded of this particuar vignette straight from the annals of my life that I decided to share it.

infoneer-pulse: Addiction is a chronic brain disorder and not simply a behavior problem involving alcohol, drugs, gambling or sex, experts contend in a new definition of addiction, one that is not solely related to problematic substance abuse.

Love is a natural state of being. A bond that define life, incline nurture, relate intention, inspire passion, imbue emotion, and engender meaning to the mutual expression of nothing but living itself. To believe it as special, or somehow reserved for some future in time, pristine at the ready of hitherto unknown events to occur is to adore in plain sight of desire. If you expect something to...

It stands to reason that there are things that we know. Then there are things that we think we do but we don’t. Then there are things we believe to depend on the things we think we know, and last but not least there is the knowledge we know to be true because of everything else. It is neither my place nor my position to ask, but I beg to suggest you decide for yourself, ‘cause the...
According to some of the latest studies on cognition, the main challenge of lying is not to inhibit a tendency to state the truth. Rather, the challenge is to handle the cognitive conflict resulting from the need to keep others’ mental states in mind while deceiving them. So since lying with deceptive intent require that we keep the mental state of those we decieve aware, our own awareness is...

The choices we share
If I think back I cannot imagine that Jimmy would ever hurt a fly. Besides, he changed my life when he insisted that I hug a tree. A choice that I never thought I would share. I remember well the balmy day in May we went to play at the Botanical Garden. We were high and drunk on joy and happiness. I remember well how stupid it felt to hug the massive oak. I remember four of us amazed when down...

However, the cognitive and neural underpinnings of deception are still poorly understood. Why does lying place increased demands on cognitive control?
