In a Swedish documentary I’ve watched called “Science of the World”, they brought up the subject of global warming. In this documentary they explain that we have all have the knowledge and tools to be able to prevent the dramatic change of global warming. Still the humankind turns a blind eye to the reality. Mostly because we’re so uncomfortable of the consequence with global warming. If this a fact too, shouldn’t the world start concentrating on changing the mind state of the human? I know that there’s many countries who make laws, to get you be more considerate to the environment. Still, why not taking it a further step and make an inevitable international course about saving the environment?

Neuroscience could mean soldiers controlling weapons with minds:
Soldiers could have their minds plugged directly into weapons systems, undergo brain scans during recruitment and take courses of neural stimulation to boost their learning, if the armed forces embrace the latest developments in neuroscience to hone the performance of their troops.
These scenarios are described in a report into the military and law enforcement uses of neuroscience, published on Tuesday, which also highlights a raft of legal and ethical concerns that innovations in the field may bring.
Interview with Professor Rod Flower FRS, chair of the Royal Society’s new report.
This is your mind on meditation: less wandering, more doing… The brains of experienced meditators appear to be fitter, more disciplined and more “on task” than do the brains of those trying out meditation for the first time.
And the differences between the two groups are evident not only during meditation, but also when the mind is allowed to wander freely. And as you can see in the vidclip, meditation can be practiced almost anytime, anywhere :)
