I am not good at coming up with topics to write because my mind works with triggers. Some question or some incidence will trigger a set of disconnected thoughts that are really connected if some one looks at brain as a network of interconnected neurons. After all our brain is nothing but full of fat and a set of sparsely interconnected billions of neurons and knowledge is just a pattern that excites some of them at the time of application of that knowledge.
This morning I had a trigger and it triggered Mindfulness because some body talked about “Attention”. I am trying to improve my knowledge about “Attention” so I created a facebook group at the url http://ysu.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8420304101
And Mindfulness is connected to Attention in a very intimate way. I have read up on Jon Kabat-Zin big time. Him and Richard Davidson using FMRI scanning techniques from Cognitive Neuroscience to investigate meditative practices.
Here is his bio on Wikipedia
and an article in Washington Post
and his talk at Google http://tinyurl.com/2uo7ae Very interesting and highly informative
Also a set of his videos of his talks
