Modern life and Restless Mind

Overload

There is a exponential upsurge in our mental activities. Our modern jobs force us to work on more data, more calculation, more analysis, more screen based tasks.

This creates great divide between brain and rest of the body as far as throughput is concerned. Brain at max capacity ans rest of the body at rest.

What it does to your body?
1) Accelerate ageing. You become old faster.
2) Weakens organs efficiency. Organs like heart, lung, kidney don’t work at best. Increasing risk of sudden organ failure like cardiac arrest.

Solution?
Exercise as supplements. Must must. Mandatory.
6 hrs high intensive mental job = 1 hr of rigorous exercise at ground, in open, not at gym. Walk in the woods. Surya Namaskar under the sky, in front of the sun.

Culture of Violent Web-Series and Making of Zombies

I wrote this post 5 years back but I think it was ahead of time. Many friends called be fanatic for it.

teenviolence

There is new trend. What you can’t produce as multiplex movies due to censor board, produce them as web-series. There is no censor but you get maximum views. Even teens and kids will watch it as there is hardly any parental control in tech-illiterate society with no moral duties.

Trend of showing psychopath (a person with an antisocial personality disorder) led gross violence is increasing in retarded Bollywood (Gangs of wasseypur type).

Now the point is: As per study, there is a link between less functioning brain/mind of young adult whose brain development is still going on (age under 25) and interest in such psycho violence. (Link in first comment on post)

There are two possible conclusions.

1) Either violence disturbs brain development -> confused youth
2) Or due to pathetic food intake (Fast food) and lack of parenting, youth take interest in such retarded psycho movies and that further lead to slow down of brain development.

In either case, it is loss-loss situation. It only increases confused and psychos in society. And are we surprised about crimes against women? We shouldn’t be.

Solution?

1) Make sure your teen boy and girl eat right food. At least you should control it.
2) If possible, explain them side effects of remaining in influence of retarded or psycho perceptions.

Exposure to TV Violence Related to Irregular Attention and Brain Structure

“We found that the more violent TV viewing a participant reported, the worse they performed on tasks of attention and cognitive control,” Dr. Hummer said. “On the other hand, the overall amount of TV watched was not related to performance on any executive function tests.”

Dr. Hummer noted that these executive functioning abilities can be important for controlling impulsive behaviors, including aggression. “The worry is that more impulsivity does not mix well with the behaviors modeled in violent programming.”

Tests that measured working memory, another subtype of executive functioning, were not found to be related to overall or violent TV viewing.

Comparing TV habits to brain images also produced results that Dr. Hummer and colleagues believe are significant.

“When we looked at the brain scans of young men with higher violent television exposure, there was less volume of white matter connecting the frontal and parietal lobes, which can be a sign of less maturity in brain development,” he said.

White matter is tissue in the brain that insulates nerve fibers connecting different brain regions, making functioning more efficient. In typical development, the amount or volume of white matter increases as the brain makes more connections until about age 30, improving communication between regions of the brain. Connections between the frontal and parietal lobes are thought to be especially important for executive functioning.

“The take-home message from this study is the finding of a relationship between how much violent television we watch and important aspects of brain functioning like controlled attention and inhibition,” Dr. Hummer said.

Body with Disturbed Mind has no cure

DisturbedMind

If medicines don’t show effect, physical body is not the culprit. Suffering has more deeper roots. Disturbed social relations? Discontent with life? Dissatisfaction? Mood disorder?

Good doctor should also be a good social detective too. For successful recovery, to do root-canal of disease, he/she must learn to cure social/mental issues of his/her patients.

Disturbed mind cannot be cured by physical body solutions. Pain-killer pills will temporary kill the pain however due to disturbed mind, body’s indigestion will continue and all series of life-style diseases.

It is vicious cycle. You abandon mother and her prasad and the vacuum will be filled by vices.

Smoking leads to mental disorders.

Omega-3 intake reduces smoking addiction.

We also notes on this forum that Omega-3 intake also reduces Bipolar disorder symptoms.

A New Study Conducted at the University of Haifa Has Found Omega-3 Reduces Smoking

http://www.newswise.com/articles/a-new-study-conducted-at-the-university-of-haifa-has-found-omega-3-reduces-smoking

In a study performed by Dr. Sharon Rabinovitz Shenkar, head of the school of criminology department’s addiction program, it was found that taking omega-3 capsules significantly reduces nicotine craving and the number of cigarettes that people smoke a day

Taking omega-3 supplements reduces craving for nicotine and even reduces the number of cigarettes that people smoke a day, according to a new study conducted at the University of Haifa. “The substances and medications used currently to help people reduce and quit smoking are not very effective and cause adverse effects that are not easy to cope with. The findings of this study indicated that omega-3, an inexpensive and easily available dietary supplement with almost no side effects, reduces smoking significantly,” said Dr. Sharon Rabinovitz Shenkar, head of the addictions program at the University of Haifa’s school of criminology department and of the psychopharmacology laboratory at Bar-Ilan, who conducted this study.

Chronic exposure to smoke-derived toxicants is the primary cause of progressive pulmonary and immune dysfunctions, as well as carcinogenesis Cigarette smoking is connected not only to cardiovascular dysfunction, immune system dysfunction and cancer, it also reduces the levels of essential fatty acids in the brain, especially that of omega-3. A deficiency in omega-3 damages the cellular structure of nerve cells and interrupts neurotransmission in areas of the brain involved with feeling pleasure and satisfaction. These areas are essential in reward and decision-making, and are very important in the process of the development, maintenance and relapseof the addiction and to the inability to stop smoking. In simpler terms, omega-3 deficiency makes it harder for the smoker’s body to deal with its craving for another cigarette. “Earlier studies have proven that an imbalance in omega-3 is also related to mental health, depression and the ability to cope with pressure and stress. Pressure and stress, in turn, are associated with the urge to smoke. It is also known that stress and tension levels rise among people who quit smoking. Despite all this, the connection between all these factors had not been studied until now,” Dr. Rabinovitz Shenkar said.

Source Code the Movie and Yoga Vashishtha

SourceCode

Few years back, I watched one movie named ‘Source Code’. Movie ‘Source Code’ was delight watch after ‘Inception’. Must watch for those who fall into one or more categories mentioned below:

1) Researcher doing deciphering of Patanjali’s Yogsutra, Vasshisth’s Yog Vashishth and some  of such gem scriptures written by ancient scientists

2) Quantum Physics researcher/learner

3) Brain & Neuroscience researcher/learner

Go and watch movie with below primer on Quantum Physics from book called YOG VASHISHTH

Time

Infinite consciousness held in itself the notion of a unit of time equal to one-millionth of the twinkling of an eye: and from this evolved the timescale right upto an epoch consisting of several revolutions of the four ages, which is the life-span of one cosmic creation. Infinite consciousness itself is uninvolved in these, for it is devoid of rising and setting (which are essential to all time-scales), and it devoid of a beginning,middle and end. [3.61]

Space

There are three types of space—the psychological space, the physical space and the infinite space of consciousness. [3.17]

The infinite space of individed consciousness is that which exists in all, inside and outside… The finite space of divided consciousness is that which created divisions of time, which pervades all beings… The physical space is that in which the elements exist. The latter two are not independent of the first. [3.97]

Other universes/wormholes. I saw within [the] rock [at the edge of the universe] the creation, sustenance and the dissolution of the universe…I saw innumerable creations in the very many rocks that I found on the hill. In some of these creation was just beginning, others were populated by humans, still others were far ahead in the passage of their times. [6.2.86]

I perceived within each molecule of air a whole universe. [6.2.92]

Matter

In every atom there are worlds within worlds. [3.20]

Experience

Everyone has two bodies, the one physical and the other mental. The physical body is insentient and seeks its own destruction; the mind is finite but orderly. [4.10]

I have carefully investigated, I have observed everything from the tips of my toes to the top of my head, and I have not found anything of which I could say, ‘This I am.’ Who is ‘I’? I am the all-pervading consciousness which is itself not an object of knowledge or knowing and is free from self-hood. I am that which is indivisible, which has no name, which does not undergo change, which is beyond all concepts of unity and diversity, which is beyond measure. [5.52]

Mind

The same infinite self conceives within itself the duality of oneself and the other. [3.1]

Thought is mind, there is no distinction between the two. [3.4]

The body can neither enjoy nor suffer. It is the mind alone that experiences. [3.115]

The mind has no body, no support and no form; yet by this mind is everything consumed in this world. This is indeed a great mystery. He who says that he is destroyed by the mind which has no substantiality at all, says in effect that his head was smashed by the lotus petal… The hero who is able to destroy a real enemy standing in front of him is himself destroyed by this mind which is [non-material].

The intelligence which is other than self-knowledge is what constitutes the mind. [5.14]

Millions of universes appear in the infinite consciousness like specks of dust in a beam of light. In one small atom all the three worlds appear to be, with all their components like space, time, action, substance, day and night. [4.2]

Yoga-Vasistha (YV) is not written as a systematic text. Its narrative jumps between various levels: psychological, biological, and physical. But since the Indian tradition of knowledge is based on analogies that are recursive and connect various domains, one can be certain that our literal reading of the passages is valid.

This is excerpts are from Prof. Subhash Kak’s research paper titled “Concepts of Space, Time, and Consciousness in Ancient India”

Enjoy Source code! Write one (source code) for your life – Meditate, Connect, Unveil – The Source Code.

PS : Yog Vasishth is one of the longest texts in Sanskrit (after the Mahabharat) and an important text of Yog. The book consists of about 32,000 shlokas (lines), including numerous short stories and anecdotes used to help illustrat its content.

Media And Entertainment : Real Burning War-Front

STAR network is now STAR pariwar. Your family is already digested by this monster! Your values and culture, gone! Beware and save as many you can from your family and friends. Ask them to boycott TV the passive entertainment monster. Spend more time with nature. Be active in local civic duties. Be vigilant citizen.

We are at war-front. Great war against perception-management.

The TV came on its own as an instrument of perception-management during past many war events. Instruments such as printed pamphlets, books, radio broadcasts, the telephone and the fax, the E-mail and the Internet are good for the hard aspects of psywar for alienating the people from their state and for discrediting the state in the eyes of its people and the world, but have only limited use for the soft aspect of projecting the power or group behind the psywar in an attractive light and creating a desire to emulate its culture, ways of life etc. It is here that the value of the TV as a medium comes. Through a sophisticated production and projection of programmes, one can create in the minds of the targeted audience, particularly the urban-based elite and youth, an uncritical admiration of the Western societies, soften their prejudices towards the West and evoke a desire to imitate them. Sections of the targeted audience lose faith in their own society and culture.
Read last line with more emphasis ==> “Sections of the targeted audience lose faith in their own society and culture.” ==> This is time to hit hard on people’s psyche. Once they lose faith in their own society and culture, it is easy to mold them as controlled slaves. This is where TV plays monster role.

Do you know why more and more urban youth now castigate their own culture, calling their tradition savage and barbaric?

Read next paragraph carefully.

Writing in the “Washington Quarterly” of summer 1995, Gerald Segal, Senior Fellow, the International Institute for Strategic Studies, London, said: “It is only when Hong Kong-based consortia began satellite broadcasting of foreign and Chinese soap operas and international sports that the satellite broadcasts were watched by many millions of people on a regular basis. The fact that the BBC World Service TV was carried on the commercial satellite gave it greater penetration of the market, but persistent anecdotal evidence is clear that the viewers (in Asia) were picking up Western values mainly from the entertainment and only in passing from “talking heads” (talk shows) discussing human rights. It was “Baywatch”, “Dallas”, “Beavis and Butt-Head” or “Kung-Fu” episodes that were watched by most people and precisely because they were so much more attractive than more cerebral television, such programmes were more effective in undermining state retention of authority and control over values.”

He further said: “When Rupert Murdoch, well-known for his outspoken criticism of Asian and especially communist authoritarians, dropped BBCWSTV from his Hong Kong-based STAR TV because China warned that its presence put at risk the entire venture, many saw the move as an uncharacteristic pre-emptive kowtow to communists. But, by removing the overtly political message and continuing to provide soap operas about conspicuous consumption and loose morals, STAR was actually beginning to do far more damage to the authority of the Chinese Communist Party.”

Need of the Hour : Indianization of psychiatry utilizing Indian mental concepts

mind-hinduism

Mind is an outcome localization. Local culture, local habits, local food, local air, local water, local societal interactions.

Yes, even after so called globalization, things remain local as long as mind and its disorders are concerned.

Then, why do we have one global stick to interpret and treat it?

I will go one step further – why not to have holistic dharma-based treatment for mind (which humbly considers all localizations)? After all, it is all mental! 🙂

PS: Dharma is not religion or sect! So don’t read/ignore this with biased mind! 😉

Read this old bookmarked item I had.
=====================

Indianization of psychiatry utilizing Indian mental concepts

Refer: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3705672/

Most of the psychiatry practice in India is guided by the western concepts of mental health and illness, which have largely ignored the role of religion, family, eastern philosophy, and medicine in understanding and managing the psychiatric disorders. India comprises of diverse cultures, languages, ethnicities, and religious affiliations. However, besides these diversities, there are certain commonalities, which include Hinduism as a religion which is spread across the country, the traditional family system, ancient Indian system of medicine and emphasis on use of traditional methods like Yoga and Meditation for controlling mind.

Rituals and Mind

ritualmind

When you switch ON fan, you get electricity in the form of fan wind.
When you switch ON light, you get electricity in the form of light.

You switch ON your present need of electricity and you get it.

Invoking Devta before chanting mantra is a communication medium that connects the source to the Sadhak.

Mental switches. If you say you don’t need all rituals for spiritual progress, you certainly are under the ignorance cloud 🙂. Instead rejecting rituals, try to follow them, experience them and then decide, what suits your proclivity and what does not suit.

Btw, fire is the fastest medium to get connected with devta. Do homa regularly.
