Interconnected holographic database brains

Folk often compare the brain and the nervous system to the most complicated invention of our time. They used to describe it as a vast hydraulic system. Then they called it a telephone switchboard. Then, a computer. And if it’s a computer, that makes…

What does your problem want?

When you deal with some persistent problem – anything from a bad habit to a chronic neurosis – it’s easy to think about what you want. You want the problem gone. You want to be free of this, to be better. But do you…

The voice in your head isn’t the enemy

Many of us walk around with a voice is our heads. It’s a mean, petty voice. It criticises our actions – sometimes even hypothetical actions we haven’t even done, in some imagined future. The voice dredges up the worst mistakes of your past, the…
