more delusions.

what we see is what we get.

when we look at a picture in our mind, i mean really look at that picture, seeing the colours and the shapes and noticing how we feel as a result, we create reactions in the brain that are indistinguishable from "real" or "actual" events.

our brain chemistry cannot tell the difference.

there was a study done to prove this by having one group of people shoot basketballs through a hoop while another group did the same exercise in visualisation.

the results of improvement in their ability to shoot basketballs into a hoop was similar for both groups.

personally i would have chosen a more useful task than basketball to test the theory, but that`s just me.

bill is running a virtual reality experiment over at god uncensored II as we speak.
