Is Psychiatry Erasing the Individual’s Unique Individuality?

Since none of the 300 official mental disorders has any defining physical test for diagnosis, there is no proof they exist. Period. You could interview thousands of people who say they feel depressed, and you would find significant differences. The more you listened to their stories, the more you would be convinced of the differences. You would be splitting apart the central idea of “depression” and realizing it has no common center. This is hard for many people to believe. That’s how brainwashed they are. There are no common universal states of consciousness. It’s all unique, from person to person. Just as there is no single enlightened state of consciousness which is the same for everyone, there are no “mental disorder” states that are the same for everyone.

Have you ever observed that time seems to be going by faster as you get older? There’s a reason that one summer seems to stretch out forever when you’re a kid, but zips by before you know it when you’re 30. That reason is perspective, as a gorgeous interactive visualization, by Austrian designer Maximilian Kiener, demonstrates. When you’re one year old, a year is literally forever to you — it’s all the time that you’ve ever known. But as you grow older, one year is a smaller and smaller fraction of your total life. It’s like watching something shrink in your rear view mirror.

Women’s Brains May Be the Most Vulnerable to Alzheimer’s

Women’s Brains May Be the Most Vulnerable to Alzheimer’s

Women’s brains might be more vulnerable to the degenerative effects of Alzheimer’s disease than men’s, causing them to decline in memory and cognitive function twice as fast, according to new research that could explain why women make up two-thirds of all diagnosed Alzheimer’s cases in the US.

The finding was presented this week at the 2015 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) in Washington, DC, with the team also noting that women tend to decline more dramatically than men in cognition, function, and brain size after they’ve been in surgery or under general anaesthesia.

Young People’s Friendships Affect Their Health Later On

People often think it’s the quality of their friendships that counts as opposed to the quantity, but a new study shows that the number of friends we have when we’re young has a significant impact on our health later in life.
