Cosmos, Mind & Soul

The Brain and Intention

Intro

One of the anomalies of the prevailing worldview is that a supposed non-material epi-phenomenon, mind, seemingly affects a material entity, the brain;   further that the material brain produces something immaterial, mind.

Quantum theory and clinical research address issues related to intention, attention, will and mental force and their effects on the brain.

Mental Force
