ATTN: Attention and Black holes

CERN is creating LHR, a vehicle for physicists who wish to create black holes.

Black holes are said to be takers, but they are also givers.

I look very much forward to this development. Latest issue#29 from WIE Magazine has a special called "Is God All in the Head?". In this special an interview with Andrew Newberg, who also appeared in the film What The Bleep Do We Know?.

Newberg did neurological measurements on people who meditate. He found a location in the head brain called "posterior parietal lobe" that is much less pronounced during the meditation session than before. It is this area that gives us a sense of boundary between ourselves and the rest of the world.

The reason i find this so exiting is that this finding supports my current understanding of attention. Neuroscientifical researchers mainly focus on the head brain. They have no interest in finding out where this energy that fuels the brain comes from, let alone how to steer it - which is what attention management is about.
