Mysteries of Mind
Does the mind meet the body or does abstract meet concrete? It appears, they don’t; they exist in different domains, speak different languages and work on different principles. Scientists study the human body and philosophers talk about the mind, but they hardly cross their paths, ever. Yet, the fact is that life happens when our mind and body come together. The mind can’t exist without the human body, and our body is practically dead without consciousness.
With the above perspective, Mysteries of Mind is an enquiry from different disciplines like philosophy, psychology, spirituality and neuroscience. The book tries to blend approaches of different streams on topics like defining ourselves, search for happiness, memory, love and affection for others, superstition, language, free will, mindfulness, procrastination, attention, emotions, illusion and future of mind. These are the things that make us human, yet we know so little about them. These topics have been key points to ponder from the ancient Vedic civilisation to the modern computer age. The book has stories of human minds, interesting psychological experiments, and underlying scientific explanations from neuroscientists. All these incidents and experiments help us to understand ourselves better and make the right decisions to leverage our potential of our mind fully.
