Due to the immediate crisis the brain sets in maximum motion the basics of the body and turns off all the other mechanisms. At that time the heart and the lungs work overtime to send as much oxygen as possible to the bloodstream. Imagine that a dog is barking and chasing you. The muscles respond instantly. Your blood pressure has to be high to deliver the energy all around the body. This is not the time to care about reproduction, tissue repair and digestion. Neither to fight the cold. So, the immune system is disabled, too. Also, there are other observations such as pupil dilation in order to help see in better clarity, increased perspiration to prevent over-heating due to the increased metabolic rate etc. Actually, you don’t care about the long-term project if you are sure it’s long-term.
This way the whole city (or maybe country?) was living in the mentality of bargaining. Even the Moroccans were always bargaining hard when they wanted to buy something. It is a very descriptive element of their culture. Enthusiastic as am I, I wanted to take part in the game and notice the rules in practice, as well as, the adrenaline rush!
Everyone of us wants to have pleasures in his/her life. A life full of pleasures is a wish because we instinctively know that this is an aspect of a life full of happiness. You very well know about the forbidden pleasures which society wouldn’t accept but we still feel the strong tendency to taste them. Eve with the forbidden apple anyone? Or other times we rationally disagree with a decision but we follow the pleasure’s high drive in order to achieve a gratification. As a matter of fact I was really interested to find out about the mechanisms behind this indulgence. In the below words you will understand how specifically our minds create us the feelings, not only to behave somehow, as well, to repeat this behavior in the future.
Criticism is the wisest way to get out of the imaginative spiral loop we have entered in our opinions about ourselves. Another person’s opinions are the ships that will drag us when we are cast aways in the abyss of our minds. But we often put an anchor that lets us move in only predetermined distances. In order to break its chains we need courage. We need to feel the strength to be uncomfortable in both confronting ourselves in front of another human and break our mind’s self scenario that we so well have practised throughout our lives. Do your best to find people who care to point to you when you fault.
Dating. The first thing that comes to our minds when two people are trying to establish a relationship between them. At least this is how we are supposed to believe it works…
According to what we accept as normal, the female will meet a male that finds attractive and they will exchange phones. If the male is attracted, too – a thing not so uncommon – he will engage in several phone calls and in the provision of resources of any kind such as help in the lessons, company and active listening to the things that concern her. It is extremely possible that he will explain how more caring he is compared to the other unconcerned males (probably her X that she talks about all the time?). In the case he has done well […]
Human beings are social animals. And like all the social animals there exists a ranking when they engage in a common situation. In every human interaction that involves more than a person there is a hierarchy, an order among them even though most of the times we are not aware of this fact consciously. The […]
In everyday life we are making decisions whose outcomes affect others. A friend may ask us for a favour, we might have business relations with some people etc. Every one of us has sometime felt betrayed by a friend that stopped creating that, up to that point successful, “chain” of mutual cooperation between us. There are people that we define as cheaters and others that we are sure that can be trusted. There are others that we trust and we are proved to be mistaken. Or people often try to gain the trust of others in order to delude them. Although society is supposed to be teaching the ethics of cooperation for centuries now, experience shows that deceit is very common in humanity either we like it or not. The reason is that deceit looks sweet.
The US Supreme Court in the end of March was hearing arguments in two cases on same-sex marriage. At the same time the supporters and opponents protested in front of the Supreme Court. This caused a huge movement so news media and social media are full of news and discussions around the support or not […]
“Let’s go out pick some girls”. This is a very typical phrase for human males when they are heading to a party or to a club. I mention this because I have to admit that it was a phrase very typically used by me, too, in my earlier years although the results most of the […]
Have you ever come to the observation that really a lot of people are obsessed with mating, either short or long term, talking about it most of the time and being so much emotionally attached to its outcomes? Have you ever caught yourselves? Although it is so common, it is supposed to be a taboo in open discussions. Societal rules seem to be judging it as something intimate to the point of secrecy. […]
