This can be an amazing year for you, regardless of whether or not you made (or broke) any new year's resolutions. At this time when the placebo effect has mysteriously doubled in efficacy over the past thirty years as people benefit from sugar pills and "sham" surgery so much that Harvard University has created an institute to study the placebo it's becoming increasingly clear that there is a powerful mind-matter mind-matter connection became crystal clear to me in the early 1980s when I came to UC Berkeley as an undergraduate student in the Physics program. At that time, I was one of the very few caucasians in the Physics program, and one of just a handful of women. When I sat down in one of my first lecture halls, surrounded by hundreds of mostly male Asian students, I experienced a very primal sense of fear--a feeling of "you don't belong here."Fortunately, this was a familiar feeling that I'd learned to deal with before, as just two years earlier I'd been the only girl in my high school physics class. One would think such things don't really matter, except every time a female high school student walked past the windows in our high school physics class, the teacher stopped talking mid-sentence, silence descended upon the class, and all eyes watched the young lady stroll the length of the classroom as she walked past 'd learned while taking advanced math classes and physics classes in high school to pretend that "lots of young girls just like you do great in math and science," and this was the same cheery inner pep talk I gave myself that first year as a Physics major at UC turns out such an attitude of "faking it 'til you make it" is enormously useful for all of us as we get older, as scientific studies show that those of us who harbor negative prejudices about old age are statistically more likely to end up the way we presume older people to be. When a group of people were asked to describe qualities typically found in the elderly, those who expected people to deteriorate over time were found by researchers in this longitudinal study to suffer just such a fate, whereas those who viewed the elderly in more favorable light were statistically more likely to be found prospering and thriving many years you're wondering what can possibly account for people being healed by fake surgeries and sugar pills, and aging according to largely subconsciously held prejudices about old you're not for all of us, we're now living through one of the most exciting times in the history of the world when our entire way of thinking about ourselves in relation to the world is being transformed. We're now at the dawn of the Quantum Age, which was officially ushered in back in September 2013 when Google and NASA's Ames Research Center purchased the first quantum computer, the D-Wave Two, for $17 million. Thanks to a modicum of transparency with the US government financing of part of this project, we can now track some of the progress in quantum programing at the QUantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QUAIL) at what's the big deal about this being the dawn of the Quantum Age, and how does that relate to this being such a great year for you?You can read the full companion blog post at:
