Knowing ourselves to become better.
Are intelligence, homosexuality, or psychopathology inherent? Does our subconscious control us? Did you know that light doesn’t exist outside our minds, or that languages can prolong your life? Did you know we can detect a drop of fragrance in an Olympic pool? Would you like to know why it’s so hard to lose weight, or why we forget things? What do you think is more powerful, emotions or reason? Are we preprogrammed for violence? Do you want to know why we feel stress, or how to age better? Have you ever heard of epigenetics? Well, you should know, it is the science that could revolutionize humanity’s future.
