Germ theory was originally rejected, people could not believe in the existence of something you can not see that caused harm. The science eventually helped people catch up and we now cure many people.
There are a couple of effects that should blow peoples minds daily.
Placebo effect, i’m not sure we actually understand how this works.
Somehow, the power of the mind heals the body, does it generate chemistry to suit the condition?
If so, how would it know how to do that if in the first place we were going to go
to a Dr to receive a pill that been heavily researched, how does the body do that almost immediately.
Two slit experiment. Observing, (Is it correct to say applying consciousness ), changes the outcome
of the experiment. Scale this up. Imagine looking away from your television and it turns in to a potted plant, then looking back and it changes back to a TV - we would freak out.
The 2 effects above, are sound like they belong in the sci-fi realm.
I don’t want to sound woo woo, too spiritual, or other worldly… instead i’ll say, i can’t wait for the science to catch up with the above. Could we one day just think our selves better, even think other people better by applying our thoughts to them?
Of course, you can’t think a severed arm back on to a person, you use the appropriate tool for the job, a 3D surgeon in the here and now is useful to fix the body - and should not be dismissed in favor of thoughts (Prayer if you are that way inclined). You can’t pray a hand back on, but we shouldn’t dismiss any further effects of positive thoughts.
Are there any other effects out there just as puzzling as the above that we should know about?
