Omtale: Herbie Brennan's Forbidden Truths: Strange Powers of the Human Mind
The most powerful weapon on the planet is hidden right behind your eyes. Your mind is capable of things you've hardly dared to dream about: controlling others and travelling through time and space. Amazing facts from Herbie Brennan's "Strange Powers of the Human Mind" are: the brain has no pain receptors - that's why a surgeon can slice into it without you feeling a thing; Buddhists believe that the entire universe is maya, an illusion generated by the human mind; a quarter of all British students have had an out-of-body experience; there is evidence that hypnosis was used in Ancient Egypt, Ancient China and Ancient Greece - it was sometimes called 'temple sleep' or mekhenesis, which means 'the taking away of responsibility'.
