Mind over Matter

In a brief attempt to return to the original purpose of this blog, I am posting this. It is a link to a site at Princeton University where they are conducting research on the interaction between mind and body. What I find quite interesting is that they (and others) have been able to show a statistically significant effect of participant intention on the outcome of otherwise random mechanical events. In other words, these guys are uncovering proof that thoughts influence physical events. Big stuff! For those unaware, philosophy has been trying to solve the mind/body problem since Descartes' now famous "Cogito ergo sum" or "I think, therefore, I am."
