the brain engages in electrical activity
and secretes chemicals.
It doesn’t secrete thought.
no matter what its state or condition.
The mind controls behavior.
The mind has free will.
evolution, form, or behavior.
DNA directs the formation
of proteins in cells.
That is all.
There is no determinism.
Your brain is changed by what you think.
Your genes are changed by what you do.
Mind does not inexplicably spring from the material.
Mind is basic to everything in the universe.
Everything that exists is made out of mind.
There is only One Mind.
The above sums up the current state of science today.
Many scientists are not up to date; that is common to a large-scale scientific paradigm shift such as we have been going through since 1905.
I write about this, among many other things. This is my deal.
I live on the West Coast of the United States.
I am a liberal humanist.
I am 5′ 2″, eyes of blue (I am small but feisty).
I love acting and directing, writing and editing, movies and television, art and natural history museums, downhill skiing, uphill swimming, oil painting, photography, and reading, analyzing, and writing about science, psychology, medicine, biography, history, finance, humor, and current events.
I am devoted to science, especially to quantum physics, astronomy, chemistry, genetics, nutrition, ergonomics, and environmentalism.
My lifelong labor-of-love studies and my B.A. are in psychology. I have special interests in consciousness and metaphysics, human relationships, child psychology and welfare, gender issues, abuse and trauma studies, and the love and protection of all human beings and the earth.
Most recently, in the offices of a university public health program, I was the senior editorial assistant, online manuscript and review submission website administrator (Thompson Reuters’ ScholarOne), instruction writer and editor, managing editor of special issues, and ad hoc manuscript reviewer and copy editor for an international public health science research journal.
Please hire me to act, write, edit, or copy edit your manuscript. I am perfectionistic, creative, and communicative. (I am also, although I do say it, loving, intelligent, and talented.)
Dream: Living in L.A., being swept away by the emotion that only great art can give, dancing on Music Saturday nights, playing, striving, and loving with all my heart.
I am health oriented; I don’t drink alcohol, smoke anything, use illegal drugs and I avoid most legal ones. I avoid processed foods; I love to cook and bake from scratch using organic ingredients; I loves me my homemade bread and chocolate cake; I drink milk two to four times a day; I keep my fiber and water intake high (a micro post on how to keep your health up and your weight down).
Old Motto: That’s what I said.
New Motto: I would never deliberately lead you astray.
General thing to know about me: “And though she be but little, she is fierce.”
(I am not, and have never been, a vixen, though.)
