    I doubt you've met many monks of differing disciplines...you seem to be going more off stereotypes than anything. Monks are some of the most pleasant, humorous people I've ever met. There's plenty of...

    Well, the idea isn't that specific, but let me give you a brief example.

    Say an individual has undergone profound trauma (e.g., a veteran coming back from war). Many geneticists might suggest that...

    Buddhism/karma would not suggest we are born blank slates, and there's no reason genes cannot be a part of karma. Are you familiar with epigenetic research, for instance? If anything that may only...

    It is impossible to believe the things you say and still believe in morality, right/wrong, etc. What you are saying is at great odds with morality in...

    I'm not saying the brain decides what is good or bad, or differentiates good from bad (hence why no emotion or thought is good or bad - they just are). We decide what is good or bad in terms of...

    It's more an influence. Buddhism isn't fatalist, nor does it subscribe to free will. If anything, they might call it conditional will. There is some "will" that an individual can enact at any given...

    I agree. And people who see language and mental concepts as not being reflective of reality ought to consider this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoshin

    It is just a shame that people who...

    Right, and that's the issue; the both of you have a fundamental misunderstanding of what karma is. Nothing wrong with that, but maybe it's worth reading more into it when it's discussed as it is now!...

    Everything you said is karma. You may not understand what "karma" means, but it entails patterns of behavior stemming from cause/effect based on past and present actions, setting a path for further...

    Psychiatry is probably one of the worst professions, in my opinion. There are some great, responsible psychiatrists out there, but unfortunately too many of them are just sucking down the...

    Exposure is the only therapeutic modality that matters, period.

    Take care, man!

    It's all inaccurate. It's never been substantiated to help anyone in the slightest. There's literally no utility in it, and it's just never been supported via research.



    Haha, is this a nut...

    Well, there is a limit, it's probably just whatever your entire daily limit is, but I'm pretty sure that's what you were getting at. Because somehow I don't believe you were suggesting you can absorb...

    Yeah, I just have little to no interest in this stuff and from everything I've been taught in undergrad/grad school, the majority of cognitive psychology has little to no bearing on anything outside...

    This.

    The real question is: how much of a difference does it make long-term?
  • I have a strong distaste for cognitive psychology...

    I have a strong distaste for cognitive psychology because I think a lot of the research is pretty bogus and unsubstantiated. I say this as a clinical psychology graduate student.

    I don't think you're fully understanding what mindfulness entails...It's not zoning out or masking the problem.
